Aw that is TOO cute!!Originally Posted by EmilyMayWilcha
Even when they sleep cats are amusing. Patricia is a master at getting all the way under the covers and turning around so she sleeps the same way I do - with her head on the pillow.
Our Nicolai does that, too (wipe the sides of the box), as did Deli. Nicky (Nicolai) also perches when he pees, but not when he poops. My wife has long, thick red hair, so when she brushes it, she gets lots of hair in her brush that she throws in the toilet, so she told me this morning that Nina (Ninotchka) tries to fish the clumps of hair out of the toilet.I think I asked in the Behavior section what weird and silly habits other kitties have a while back, but here are reminders of what my cats did:
Emily: She dipped her paw (right as a kitten, left as an adult) in the water and licked it off. She also tipped a trash can over to dig out a rubber band. Its final destination usually was the food bowl.
Patricia: She gets out, turns around, and gets back in the box to bury urine. Every time she poops, she stands with all four paws on the corner edge. I have never seen any other cat do that.
Wilbur: He sat at the basement door waiting for me to open it but when I did he just looked down at the stairs for a few seconds. In litterboxes, he wiped his paw on the wall, but did not always bury his poop.
I think being ornery is a genetic trait in domestic cats because every cat does something silly.
I'm sure Nicky would wipe the wall, too if not for the box cover. Maybe they perch to avoid splashing urine.Subvet, I was talking about the house wall.
Do you have any idea why our cats perch on litterboxes for one thing and not the other? I never understood that.
