We asked the BuzzFeed Community what weirdo things their cats do, and these are the hilarious responses!
1. Classic Tibby
2. Buddy's Secret
When my cat Buddy is alone, or thinks he’s alone in the apartment, he will play with a pizza box holder from Pizza Hut with three prongs connected in the middle. He stares at it and does this weird yowl-singing at it, before batting it around for a second or two, then back to the staring, yowling, singing. He will stop immediately if you enter the room or make any noise.
3. Sock Kittens
My cat carries around socks like they are her kittens.
4. Meatball and Her Sweaters
5. Gifts for the Neighbor
He steals everything including couch covers, my coats, hats, gloves, souvenirs, undewear, bras, bathroom mats, and clean sanitary napkins (delicately removing them from the wrapping). He takes all of these things to the man who lives next door.

6. The Pickiest Cat in the World
My cat Fitz is the pickiest cat I’ve ever seen, and he notices everything. You can’t change out a picture on the wall or move something without him taking notice. He will stare at whatever it is for hours. His water dish has to be in the exact same spot every day or he won’t drink from it, just glare until it’s moved back (even if it is only a foot away from its normal spot). He loves his treats, but there is one shape he won’t eat.
7. The Cooking Enthusiast
8. Welcome to My Home
One of my mom's cats has a weird habit of announcing a visitor's arrival in song. When someone comes in the house, he runs into the kitchen, jumps on the counter, and gently bats at some wind chimes in the window. He never plays with them otherwise.

9. Hey, Let Me Out
10. Creepy Cat
My first cat liked to sit at the neighbor's sliding glass door and just stare into her house. One day she was telling me about a "creepy cat" that would just stand there and stare all the time. I asked what it looked like and sure enough it was my cat.

11. To Each Her Own
My cat sucks on her own nipples.

12. Plastic Is a Cat's Best Friend
My weirdo kitty Millie likes to look after plastic wrappers. She carries them to the front of the garden and then waits for a gust of wind to carry the plastic to the other end. She then chases it and brings it back to the front, and she'll do this for hours!
13. Cats Love Rubber Bands Too
14. The Grass Is Always Greener
My cat’s indoor-only, except for when we let her out on a harness. She spends most of her day sitting in front of the sliding glass door looking out, but when we let her out on a harness, she sits in front of the sliding glass door looking in. We’re beginning to think that she just likes her reflection.
15. Best Spot in the House
16. Sorry, Norah
Every time I sing the song “What Am I to You” by Norah Jones, my cat attacks me. She literally will come from anywhere in the house if she hears me singing it and bites me on my ankles and up my legs. Sorry, Norah, she just really hates that song.
17. The Cat Who Longs for AC
18. Hamster Kitten
My kitten likes knocking my bin over and jumping on it then rolling around the room like a hamster.
19. Waiting To Go #2 For Her #1
My cat likes to poop when my husband gets home from work. If he’s late she will cry and wait by the door until he gets home. The minute she hears him coming in, she runs to her tray and starts backing one out. Sometimes out of sheer desperation she will go before he gets home, crying about it the whole time.
20. Popcorn H8r
My cat has an irrational fear of popped popcorn. Not while it’s being popped (which would be understandable, because it’s loud), but after… She will run out of the room as quickly as she can. I still can’t figure it out.
21. And Finally, the Mighty Hunter
Cats: so weird, but we love them anyway. 💖💖💖
