Video of cats acting like......well, cats.
My cat likes opening my cd player on my radio.
Heh, we had one that loved to swat at the spring doorstops. Never had one go after the toilet paper, though my sister seems to be a magnet for cats with that fetish.
Thanks, ya beat me to it.
Years ago we had a silver tabby female named Diamond Lil. We used newspaper in the pans, & when we’d put a fresh newspaper in, she’d leap in, crouch & get the wildest expression on her face. Then she shredded the paper, sending it flying. If only we’d had digital camera’s & video back then...
Frisky the wonder tigress is the first cat I’ve ever known who’s never demolished a roll of toilet paper or paper towels.
The video is just toooo funny. Thanks for sharing. My cat got inside one of my Obama stash cabinets that had 24 rolls of toilet tissue in it. Must have taken her all night while I was fast asleep but there is not much left of any of them. Didn’t realize other cats did this, too. She also knows how to turn on the cold water faucet so have to make sure all the bathroom doors closed when we’re gone and there is a very large heavy put that sits atop the faucet in the kitchen.
I had a Seal Point Siamese once who was nuts about Q-Tips. The mere sight of one and he had to grab it out of your hand and start clawing it to pieces. Never could figure that out.
That first one that got help getting down the steps sounded pretty bad! LOL
this one is a fav......
Reaching underneath the door to play with the springy thing was the topper for me.
He gave that a real nice TOIIIINNNGGG for a finale. lol
I feed a number of Philippine cats. Four of them come inside, but only two like to hang around inside most of the day.
They come and go through a “catty door”.
They have never bothered with the t/p, but they will take any opportunity to prowl around the kitchen counters and into the kitchen trash can.
Sleeping and eating seems to be their only purpose in life.
Very, very funny!
I had a lengthy interchange with a Freeper not long ago about a feral kitty that I wanted to convert to an indoor kitty. Sadly, I can’t remember his/her handle because his/her advice was excellent. It will have to be the kitty’s idea.
After 8 years, this kitty (that I have begged and pleaded with to come inside) decided that it was time to become an indoor kitty. It was her idea.
She’s done really well, considering that she has never been inside before.
HOWEVER..the last two nights she has started constantly staring at me. She has food, water, a comfy bed that she chose, petting and treats. I can’t help but worry about what maybe going on behind those yellow staring eyes. It’s kind of spooky. (I totally get a dog staring with enormous love.) I kind of worry that she is planning on how to turn on the stove and cook me for breakfast? I don’t know.
I just played that video and my dog thought it was a dog and started barking.
Lol! I had a siamese that unrolled tp and paper towels,
and played with the doorstop. Here is more cat craziness.
gutter cat vs the jets
That first one with the attic stairs made me have to pause it so I could finish laughing.
Nothing better than a dead cat!!!!
Thanks dynachrome...Had a big orange cat adopt me [yeah he didn’t like his owner but me he liked]...I bought him a catnip mouse that he was interested in for about five minutes then wanted to go outside.....how he got on the top of the house I never could figure out....I got marks on both arms getting him down....he was a good cat but I was the only person he liked [who could refuse that]
“Face skating”. We had one of our favorites die recently, and that was “Roughy”. “Roughy” introduced us to the kitty sport of “face skating”. He was good at it. I think he thought he was the champion “Face Skater” in all the land. Now that “Roughy” has passed to the great litter box in the sky “Petey” has taken to entertaining us with his skills at “face skating”
“Face Skating” is a lunatic cat cramming his head, and body into the straps of one of the retired for the evening Birkenstock sandals, and pushing it with his face around, and around, and around the room. The cats seem to never tire of the sport. They do get distracted when it’s time for bed, and that’s about the only way to stop their game, other than to remove the Birkenstock from their grasp.
It’s obviously lots of fun.
The knobs are off my gas stove because my cat knows how to turn the gas on. On sept 12 of this past year, he put the gas on sometime before 11:30 pm (I remember because that’s when he jumped into bed w/ me). When I got up at 5 a.m., my entire house was filled with gas. How the hell he didn’t blow the roof off the place is beyond me except for the fact that I prayed before bed that night that my guardian angel would protect my home throughout the night.
Anyway, the knobs stay off now & I only put one on at a time whole I’m cooking. After that, I pull them off & the stay in a basket on the counter.
He was also an enthusiastic unroll-er of TP. If my wife screwed up and put a roll on backwards (for our house), Loco would find out in short order and busily unravel it.
The one time I busted him in the act, he just paused, looked up at me, said MEE-YAP-YAP, and went right back at it. Being a wuss, I did not think to stop him. Serious business.
There is not another cat like a smart Siamese.
With 39 of the furry, four-legged heatherns running around, NOTHING is safe at the radu homestead. LOL!
If my cat was a little bigger, he would kill me and eat me.
LOL! It’s really funny because the cats belong to someone else!
I have a cat with a straw fetish. If I bring home a drink with a straw in it and do not keep a constant eye on it, the straw will disappear in a flash of fuzzy whiteness.
My first kitty was a toilet paper destroyer, she would drape it around the apartment like a ribbon from room to room . She also loved those door stop thingies and q tips. And the plastic part that gets pulled off from milk bottles.
The kitty I have now likes to knock things off tables . I think she thinks she is a magician. She’s knocked over magazines and newspapers if I’m reading them as if to say
“Pay attention to me now “. She just did that with my computer, alas breaking it. I couldn’t stay mad at her she’s too cute and sweet.
Hah! Cook you? BERDIE TARTARE - It’s what’s for dinner!
Your average house cat is bored to tears in your average house.
Hey—what kind of a monster are you?!?
Of course you are right. I don’t know what the heck I was thinkin’!
We had a Siamese cat who liked to lick the varnish off of a wooden toy squirrel. When he saw that wooden toy squirrel on the floor, he’d take a flying leap and grab the toy and lick the varnish..he was Siamese CRAZY for the stuff...the toy squirrel’s fluffy tail, not so much.
Our other cat, an Orange Tabby, had a fetish for rubber bands. She’d eat the rubber bands, and we had to hide them from view.
Watch your back, berdie!
Thankfully, none of my three furballs have any interest in toilet paper.
My feral rescue kitty stares at me if I’m doing something that doesn’t involve giving her attention.
Your cat and everyone else’s. :) I still love my kitties dearly in spite of that.
“Nothing better than a dead cat!!!!”
Nothing better than a dead oldsaw! Kitties can arrange these things. You never know how. You never know when.........
