If you have a furry meowy friend, you already know what we mean. Lick thyself, we understand. Random bursts of excitement resulting in bouncing off walls? What’s going on?
Even though science may understand, logic lays baffled on the floor. Here are 7 of the weirdest, oddest, most bizarre cat habits and behaviours that we fail to understand:
Randomly chattering at birds
Seriously, what’s up with that? Chatter-chatter while looking outside at random flying birds and other runny animals makes the cat seem pretty violent, honestly.
Bouncing off walls
Meow-y Paw-y sat on the floor,
And up it went flinging itself on the door
And walls, and just high objects, really. Now, we understand that life is great and the cat has had too much caffeine but, but, but…. What’s going on?
Running to take a sip of water from the sink while you wash your hands
You just came back home. You greet your kitty and walk to the sink to wash your hands. You turn the tap on and before you know it, the kitty is at the sink bowl drinking water. But you had left a big bowl of water for it to drink from, and it remains full. You’re weirded out, so are we. Your heart is full with adoration, yes, ours too!
Random anger and gloom bursts during the night
Why does my cat sleep all through the day, but the moment I try to sleep, it starts wailing and stomping its feet?
Yes, we’ve wondered that too. The fur-ball will sleep for literally 16 hours a day but it won’t let us sleep for 6. How is that fair?
My cat is acting like I don’t exist
One minute back my cat was staring at me without blinking, and now acting like she can’t see me. What is this behaviour?
All cat hoomans have faced this, some, unluckily, face this on a regular basis.
Well, all of us want attention but also want to be left alone. We’re guessing that kitties feel the same.
Defecating outside litter box whenever they wish
“I’m the head of this house”, said the cat. “No”, said the human. “Watch me”, said the cat and pooped outside the litter box.
Even after training, even after successfully using the litter box, even though the litter is changed regularly and even though you didn’t expect it – there it is. The pee and the poo have been done outside their regular place and the kitty sits like it rules the world. Well, it does, doesn’t it?
My cat gives me massages. Hey, I’m not complaining
No, they can’t “smell” your stress or “see” your aura. They just like kneading you, might be because they kneeded their mum’s mammary glands, might be because they’re masseuses. No one knows, and no one cares why it’s happening as long as it’s happening.
