  1. You know, i wasnt sure whether my cat was the only one that would nip my hand after asking for belly rubs. Now i know…

  2. It’s missing cats knocking over drinks for no reason and laying on the keyboard while you’re on the computer.But haha pretty spot on.

  3. When kitty is belly up and asking for tummy loves, we have learned its nothing but a trap, pretty much its a game to kitty, a play invitation, and of course we as the human race falls for it everytime because its rare to get a kitty to invite you to rub the tummy, I fall for the trap every day…

        • All three of my cats allow us to give them belly rubs. The only one who seems to have a limit is Miss Fatty. But Toast and Mama Bear they like belly rubs.

      • I think you misunderstood…….”Most cats don’t ask for tummy rubs…. be nice to people, what do you have to lose?

    • You know it’s not actually asking for belly rubs, it’s called a ‘feline flop’/’the social roll’. What it means is “hey look I’m exposing my belly, my most vulnerable area because I want to show you that I trust you because you could touch my vulnerable spot but I trust you wont.” For you to go and then touch it is portraying that trust they’re showing! So most cats don’t like their tummies rubbed we just mistake the signs!

  4. Where’s cup hockey? Cat looks at something on a surface of some kind. Looks at you. Touches it with a paw. Looks at you again. Maintains eye-contact as they nudge item off surface. Look startled when thing makes a crashing noise.

  5. Wow I’m so glad to c this my cats do everything here and I thought I was the only one who went through these things thought my cats were crazy!! LOL I’m so glad to c its all a normal cat thing haha

      • Arrrrrrgh!! My cat does that all the time! If I fake her out, she rushes over to try to trip me again. While meowing. It’s like she’s saying, “Dangit! FALL already, woman!”

        • I know right???!!!! My cat does under the pretence of love. He then proceeds to ambush me in the hall, attacks my dressing gown tie and attempts to kill my good shoes while they are on my feet. All while looking so darn cute. And THEN he asks for a pat. And of course I give him one. Ah well, still love him. 🙂

  6. Number 4 – is deliberate because fresh bird pie tastes much better than the ex race-horse meat they stuff into a tin of cat food ;).

    • Darren, there is nothing in #4 that indicates it is referring to cat food. I took it to mean a piece of meat like from the table that got dropped on the floor.

  7. OMG I was laughing so hard that I was crying!! I can relate to almost all of them with my
    kitten, Kiera. #29 is how I work most of the day, when she isn’t laying across the keyboard. I loved the one about how cat people eat, hilarious!!!

  8. Here I blamed MYSELF for the craziness my cats displayed & how I catered to them too much! It’s nice to know it’s not just me…

  9. Lol I’ve had my cat Lucas about 3 months now and he does just about all the whacky stuff shown here and also has a trick of his own , he uses his paw to scoop water out of his bowl and scoops his dry food into the water bowl then scoops the food back out into his mouth needless to say its quite the mess ! he was a rescue probably a year old now .Love that whacky cat

  10. #31. waking you up to be let out an hour before the alarm.you open front door-cat backs away,ears flat-it’s too windy.Cat goes to back door……grrrr

  11. My cat Zowie likes to climb on top of the wardrobe and jump off it, and no matter how far to the left of the bed I sleep, she always manages to land on my knee. I have arthritis now…

  12. How about “refusing to drink standing water and knocking over every glass/vase in the house if you won’t leave a tap dripping for him”? Only my cat? Or “begs to be let outside in winter, sees snow, turns around and attacks your ankles in fury?”

  13. #6 is our Izzy……And we thought she had a psychological problem with food(backed up by the vet!!).
    She will have plenty of food in her bowl but NOT in the middle. Now I know what HER(MY!) problem is!!!!! Thank you!!!!

  14. Couldn’t stop laughing at these! Our 2 cats do every one of these. The vaccum cleaner is so funny mine always run on top of the counter and watch the whole time as if they have never seen it before and I vaccum alot. One of mine loves to drink out of the sink with the water running and races you everytime you go to the bathroom and I can’t tell you how many times she fell into the toilet bowl from trying to jump from that to the sink. You think she would remember but she just loves it so much she can’t help herself!

  15. #20: “You will walk to the fridge … you will open the door … you will lower the can of tuna to the floor … “

  16. Tell me why when the cat cant go out the front door because it is raining and then when she finds out its raining outside the back door as well its MY FAULT.

  17. My cat peed on my laptop because I spent too much time on it and not enough time paying attention to him. Fried the laptop.

  18. So many of those happen in my house. My cats (2) like to lay on my recliner where I put my feet. Usually both at the same time. While I am trying to write this my female cat is sneaking up on my lap and trying to push my computer away!!!! She is being real persistent!!! My cats are about 15lbs(female) and 20lb(male) and they take a lot of room!! Love ’em both though!!!

  19. My cat always come into the bathroom when im using it, and as soon as it sees i grab the toilet paper it’s like “whoops time to go”. Creeper

  20. About the belly rub one, I think my cat is a rarity, he’ll come up and ask for belly rubs and if you try to pull your hand away it gets grabbed with claws… When my other cat is annoyed at me his train of thought seems to be, “Look at this object on a shelf/counter/table, it’d be a shame if somebody were to knock it off”

  21. It started with a catnip kitty toy. Our cat would pick it up and carry it around and meow like she was calling her kittens. We rescued her when she was 15 and already spayed and loved her for the last 3 years of her life. Anyone elses cat ever do that? Had another one who could open doors, jumping up turning the handle then pulled the door open while saying( get this) “e-me-owwwwt” Cat for: Let me out. They are so fun and I have a lifetime of kitty stories. Love the ones above.

    • One of my 3 cats does this. Only she does it with plastic bottle caps. Carries them around the house howling then chases it around like it is the greatest toy in the world. Whenever any piece of furniture (bed, desk, couch….) is moved you are sure to find tons of bottle caps.

  22. Just a heads up for cat owners who don’t know, when your cat is exposing their belly to you, they’re saying they trust you. When you actually pet their belly, you’re betraying their trust, which is why the cat bites you.

    Also, cats are crepuscular, which means they’re most active during dawn and dusk. This is why you cat runs are playing at 3am.

  23. My parents had a cat before I was born that my father trained to turn the light off. he did it all the time. Especially when my mom was showering.

  24. All 3 of my Cats were strays ,I brought them into my home they all have been fixed The latest one I named George, he is a sweetie, nothing upsets him,Then there is Lily ,she is standoffish ,but if you talk to her she will talk back in meows of course. And lastly Momma she can be mean if she wants to be, The reason for the name when I picked her up from the bowling ally she was so round. She gave me 4 babies which I found homes for, I say momma I’m going to bed and she beats me there waiting on her lovens .#29 is me all the way she gets in my computer chair as soon as I get up and won’t move when I come back.

  25. Our cat does some really unique things. We have a ceiling fan with a hanging pull. Likes to jump up and turn it off and on.
    Likes to get in the shower with me and watch the water but oh my if some gets on him it’s all over, runs like a bat out of hell.
    6 am in the morning without fail he’ll wake us up by pulling down the curtains tucked up under the a/c or knocking stuff off the nightstands. Why you may ask? Because he wants his can of food and he wants it NOW!
    Can not leave our glasses or anything else for that matter on the nightstand anymore they end up on the floor and almost stepped on.
    Yep, Jon Luc is an individual. Wouldn’t trade him for anything.

  26. When I got my cat, Flerfer (Fluffy), he was so wet. It was raining. I gave him 5 dollars so he could get some food and a beer, but he ate it. I guess he was just that hungry…

  27. # 17 all the way. I can”t do my Japanese homework without a helpful cat across the books or in my lap. And at the computer. And if he slips its MY fault? Why?
