Cats with hobbies!
« on: May 25, 2017, 10:33:57 AM »
Some cats really have a specific hobby... What does your cat like to do? :P

One of my cats enjoys stealing napkins around the house (preferably used ones, and preferably right off the dining table when we look away for just a second, but she took some out of the napkin holder a few times as well). Not to rip them to pieces, that's too normal. No, she takes them too her water bowl, and drops them into the water. Then she just leaves them there. :| I have to refresh the water about three times a day... So I made a LOLcat out of her. XD

there's something about water bowls... one of my cats used to push hers all around the kitchen when she was little, so we had to buy one she couldn't move. now she likes sticking her whole paw in and splashing the water out of the bowl. meanwhile, my other cat will lie in the sink until you turn the water on and let it pour on him. he'll usually stay for about 5 minutes before he gets bored :P

My cat has a hobby of loudly meowing at the wall, or 'scratching' at the bathroom mirror until I come and get him.

He doesn't do it any more but when my cat was a kitten he had a habit of making "collections" under the sofa. We'd pull it out to clean and find he'd dragged several little items like pen lids, sweet wrappers and pennies and made a little pile out of them
I collect owls too! :heart:

What a silly kitty! I love the weirdo napkin cat :D

I used to have a cat that -and only when nobody was looking- would find random things (a doll, a sock, a stuffie) and drag them around HOWLING as if the world would end-  but if she saw you peaking at her she'd drop the toy and look around as if she had no idea who had just been doing that...

Cats are nuts

I have two and between them they sure come up with some weird stuff.

Ruby, the oldest, is literally scared of her own shadow. She never walks, she sneaks. Everywhere. I work nights, and one of her hobbies is to slam the door to my room open while announcing her arrival. She keeps meowing until I pat the bed like she needs approval to get in to the bed. She does the exact same thing when she leaves. She also keeps racing up and down the hallway to get attention whenever she wants wet food.

Zappa isn't even a cat. If we pick him up he will cradle himself into a baby position until we let him down and he almost never land on his feet when jumping down. He will climb anything when we make food and is hungry for wet food 24/7. He also makes noises whenever we address him or when he is in a deep sleep.

Well, Since you asked....

My cat does NOT do any hunting whatsoever, but he is a great dog nontheless ;D

He walks on leash and does a ton of tricks.

My feline companion passed away last year, but he always was sleeping in the stuffed animals my sisters and I have. We often joked that he was pretending to be one of them. Another thing he did was when my dad was on conference calls, Einstein (the cat) would believe my dad was talking to him. And so he would hop onto his shoulder and purr, as happy rag doll cats often do. So you would have important business going on and then hear this loud purr that was like a truck!
This. Sentence. Is. False! Dontthinkaboutitdontthinkaboutit.

One cat steals coins. We bought a coin sorter and sort and store all coins upon coming home so she can't stash them anymore. She also has taught herself to open doors and goes spelunking in the closets. She was probably a catburglar in a past life.

The other cat isn't smart enough for hobbies, so she just follows her sister around.

Garfield likes to look in cupboards - and climb into them if there's room. He has mastered opening doors with one paw and now there is no stopping his curiosity. He unexpectedly popped out of the little cupboard under the bed the other day :)

He is very keen on cat toys. One of them is a fish on a string attached to a stick. He is quite ambivalent about the fish, but becomes very excited about catching the stick. Another of his favourite games is lying on the bed/other surface and having a catnip mouse thrown at him and trying to catch it.

Oh, and he likes ponies. He doesn't play with them (thankfully!), but he likes to go and look at them (probably because they're in a cupboard), stands up on his hind legs to look at the higher shelves, and also rubs his head against certain ponies that he seems to particularly like.

Life is never dull if you have a cat milling about in it, doing strange cat-type things :)
