    Just wondering what strange and weird habits peoples cats have . Jakey's habit more annoying than anything lol is he is constantly crying like all the time he just wants to be picked up then he stops. Alfie I am convicted has OCD only uses litter tray if completely clean must dip paw in water before he drinks tries to bury his food when he's full Hates closed doors. Nighttime is even more fun Jakey licks my hair to go to sleep Alfie has to lick my neck even covers over my head doesn't deter him he starts digging to get in at me . Isit just me or has everyone cats got weird habits?

    Both my cats like to play fetch - no idea how it started as I didn't teach them.

    When Basil wants a cuddle or a stroke he will come & sit beside me but if I don't notice him he'll pat me with his paw. If I continue to ignore him he gets more forceful & then wail.

    Basil also loves a toe that pokes out from beneath the covers when I'm in bed. He will sit there waiting for ages then pounce when he spots one - it's a very startling wake up!

    Winnie likes to sleep on my head & play with me hair whilst I'm asleep & usually tangles it up for me. She also loves cotton buds & will steal them when she gets a chance

    I'm not sure if its a weird habit or just a preference. Mouse refuses to drink from a bowl but she will drink - hot bath water, out of my glass, from dirty puddles and water that has collected on top of the recycling /brown bins.

    Not really weird, but..... Seb is obsessed with water, when he hears a tap running, he'll come running, be it bath, basin or sink, he's not bothered by the toilet, thank god :) his favourite is the kitchen sink, he'll sit in the sink waiting for the tap to drip, if it doesn't he'll start licking it, this morning he must have got water up his nose as he didn't stop sneezing for about 5 minutes, did make me panic a bit though.

    If he has lost one of his ping pong balls or it's stuck somewhere, he'll come to find me, he'll look at me, then make a mmmm sound, that means I've lost my balls mum :)

    Frankie gives me head massages and will play with my hair :D I lay next to him on the bed and he just does it :) sometimes it's so nice and relaxing it makes me fall asleep :)

    When Rosso decides he wants attention or feeding and we are watching TV, he will walk along the top of the fireplace, miaowing as loudly as he can, to make sure we don't miss him and, one by one, swipe all the ornaments and photos etc on the the floor. We are forced to either ignore him (which we should do really, to teach him that it doesn't work) and watch our things get knocked onto the hearth and broken, or jump up to stop him.

    What a fun thread!
    Ari has loads of weird habits.
    For example when she comes for cuddles in the middle of the night, she must come from my legs side. If she's coming from my shoulder, she has to 'park' properly, she comes and goes 2-3 times until she can lay on my chest in the right angle.

    My cats are full of weird habits!

    Dixie loves foil - if I tear a sheet off in the kitchen she'll come running hoping that I make it into a ball for her. She doesn't chew the foil so I'm comfortable giving her some. If I throw it down the hallway she will run after it and come trotting down the hallways towards me, circle around me from my left to right then drop the ball in front of me.

    Hobbes is obsessed with plastic and we have to make an effort to keep anything chewable out for sight or reach. I am slightly concerned with this as he has been known to chew off bits and then be sick but he seems to mostly just like to chew. I've actually seen him get a bit anxious if he's been chewing and then I've taken away his plastic.

    I know this - Dixie will come to bed at the same time as us but will sit at the end of the bed until I turn on my side and then she will come and spend about 5 minutes kneeding my shoulder, poke me in the mouth then curl up for the night!

    My Tink loves bags, boxes trays, anything you put down she will go and sit on. Jeffrey likes to suck my earlobe (something I asked about in another thread). He also likes to watch my kitchen tap running and every single time, he sticks his nose in it. They both love to terrorise my Doberman X, Bruno.

    Dont know if this counts as a habit but when my partners alarm goes off in the morning it wakes sheldon up, he gets off his bed stretches makes his way round to my partners side of the bed makes his way onto his chest and begins meowing softly and rubbing his face on his face and if he refuses to get up he then begins pulling his work shirts off the hangers from his clothes rail till he gets up and now he has got into the habit of being used to being fed at 7am EVERY morning so on a weekend its loads of fun in our house lol

    When I'm getting dressed, I have to hide my bra before I put it on or Simba chews the strap or runs off with it. I won't go into what he does with my knickers... :eek:

    When Misi wants to get into bed with me, she sits on my pillow and gently scratches me under my chin.

    when i get the hoover out (cylinder, not upright) my cat will lie in front of it until i've given him a going over with it. :laugh:
    it has adjustable suction so it's on a low setting for him and doesn't pull his fur.

    One of the cats I'm currently looking after for friends likes getting it on with fleecy items :eek: (even though he was neutered as a youngster over 10 years ago).

    I regularly go downstairs in the morning to find the cat blanket pulled off the sofa and in a ball on the rug (or sometimes he drags it up to the landing).

    Anything fleecy is fair game - tops, jackets, dressing gowns, you name it, he'll have a go at it, although he never does it in front of you.

    After I've gone to bed I'll often hear him downstairs, squeaking and chattering away to himself as he violates Mr Fleecy Blanket :D

    My cat Tickles has to sit in everything possible. He will sit in anything, boxes, drawers, wardrobes and whenever im cleaning out my mices cages, he has to sit in them before they are washed. He also sleeps ontop of the fridge. It has always been his fav place so we put a hooded cat bed up there for him and he loves it:p

    when i was a child i had my faithful cat, Oscar. he would walk with me to the end of the street in the morning, then wait for me at the driveway in the afternoon when i came back from school. he also had to sleep IN my bed with his head on the pillow. my mum gave up trying to stop him in the end lol

    then there was Molly - she loved watching the toilet flush, and racing me up and down the stairs.

    now we have Freddy - who likes to sit in the sink whenever i'm in the bathroom, and also sleeps curled up on my pillow - not too bad at the minute as he's only 14 weeks, but it could get a bit cramped soon! lol
