Even though we share our houses and hearts with cats, these extraterrestrial creatures are still full of secrets and mystery for us. And nothing’s strange about that. Living by some clear behavior patterns, we, as firmly rationalists, find it hard to get used to a cat’s insanity (even if such a cute one).
Traditionally, our team kindly asks you to grab a cup of sweet frappuccino with cloud-like biscuits and put an arm around your chunky-belly cat.
Now, with peace of mind, we can start our trip through the cat’s craziness.
Let’s do it!
1 Eating & Drinking From Everything but a Bowl
As cat owners, we know about the complicated relationship between felines and bowls. Just a second after putting a piece of meat into a special plate, your purr one drew it out on the floor.
And immediately after you’ve poured some fresh water into a new cat dish, your cat stomped to drink from the sink.
This happens because of the cat’s high-sensitive whiskers. If the bowl is wrong sized, so your pet’s whiskers touch it, he can feel uncomfortable. It would be better to find something more suitable for your friend.
2 Butt Manifestation
You’ve undoubtedly had these moments when your lovely cat jumped onto your bed, starting to rub on you and proudly showing you his gluteus-maximus.
This curious gesture means a friendly & warm greeting in the cats’ language. Maybe, you don’t perceive it in that way, though. (That’s normal. Merely imagine your human friend showing you his butt instead of “hey there, what’s up?”).
However, cats are what they are, and we ought to love them completely, with their strange gestures, odd actions, and greeting-with-butt-habits.
3 Weird Gastronomic Obsession with Plants
Beyond a shadow of a doubt, you’ve seen your little lion chewing grass, plants, or even flowers. The point is that felines genuinely care about their health (and that’s what we should learn from them!). So your cat can try to heal himself in such an odd way if he feels slightly sick because of overeating, undereating, digestive issues, etc.
But keep an eye out! Not every plant is acceptable for a cat’s lunch. That’s why it’s better to check all stuff your tiny meow one consumes. His physical and mental health will thank you a million with a sunny muzzle and satisfying head bumps.
That’s why we prepared the list of the most common toxic plants for cats. As people like to say, it’s better to be safe than sorry. So check it and make sure that your cat is safe.
4 Staring into Vacancy
Staring into nothing is quite OK behavior for cats. Thanks to their delicate sensibilities, felines can see even microscopic dust flying.
Besides, purr guys may gaze in space while proceeding with some tough info (like you, when thinking up the best cue in the debates that ended two years ago).
5 Interesting “Gifts” for His Loved Ones
Some of you that live in private houses may notice felines’ amusements of presenting you with birds, mice, and other prey they hunted. In such a strange way, cats look after their beloved owners, sharing these specific yummies with them.
Also, it’s a sign that your little meow man badly wants your attention and endorsement by boasting of his exceptional predator skills.
Consequently, never forget to treat your purr friend like a prince and give him all the love & emphasis he deserves!
6 Pawbeats Breaking the Night
Cats’ and humans’ sleep-wake cycles aren’t similar. Our fur buddies are more active at night, and that’s what their nature is. Unfortunately, we have nothing to do with these all-night races.
7 Moonlighting as Your Personal Massagist
When a cat massages your body, blanket, or pillow with his paws, it doesn’t mean that he was a massagist in a previous life. This action is simply an echo of your purr body past. Being a little kitty, he massaged mommy’s tummy to get more milk.
It could mean that your cat trusts you as much as he trusted his mother, or perhaps now your sweet pet feels a necessity for tenderness more than ever.
8 Rare Belly Presentation
If your cat shows you his belly (which is a very vulnerable body part for him!), you’re a chosen one! This curious gesture means nothing but good. Think of it as a deep affection and complete trust.
9 Sleeping in the Unbelievably Strange Positions
Some of you, especially those, who recently got a cat, may find cats sleeping positions odd and inconvenient. And you’re right. All these curled-up or loaf-like nap poses don’t seem cozy and healthy.
But, guys, we’re talking about cats here. Purr buddies are entirely different creatures, and we couldn’t achieve their incredible flexibility even stretching 10 hours daily.
So we’re sorry, but you’ll never be able to sleep in a curled zigzag or bread-like cats’ curious poses.
10 Knocking Random Stuff Off
You should change your mind if you’ve already labeled your cat as an insane hater of cups, keys, and other items on your desk. The prosaic reason for such a crazy cat’s behavior is the lack of attention and pure desire to play with anything on his way.
11 Non-Meow Meows
When seeing prey (bird, bag, mouse, etc.), cats can make a noise like chirping, but nothing strange about that. The chirp-like sound is merely a joy and excitement from the chance to play some hunting & chasing games.
12 Blinks Slower than Snails
Cat owners pretty much misunderstand this fact. You may think your pet blinks slowly when he’s tired because of all that cat stuff like staring into the nothing, knocking your favorite cups from the table, grass-eating, and so on…
Hence, it could seem your monkey businessmen are just sleepy after a ha-a-ard working day. And you know, that’s the truth, as cats can sleep more than 12 hours per day…
Nevertheless, slow blinking has a much more cute & sentimental explanation, so if your cat slowly blinks at you, you are a lucky man! It means that your fluffy one loves you, and his slow blinking equals a human’s hug or kiss.
Thank You for Your Time!
We believe that mentioned facts help you better understand your cat’s odd actions, at least on an iota. If we’re right, and you’ve found this little article interesting, don’t be shy to share it with friends!
P.S. Have a great day, and please, receive some sincere slow blinkings from each member of our cat-loving team!
