"After she eats she runs to me, looks me in the eye, and burps in my face."

We asked the BuzzFeed Community what incredibly weird things their cats do, and these are some of the best, strangest responses.

1. The furniture cleaner.

2. The budding real-estate agent.

"My cat likes to take me on guided tours of my apartment. He will stop in front of doors, windows, cabinets, and pretty much everything else to comment on them. If I don't follow him, he'll meow until I catch up with the 'tour.'"

3. The hard-to-read cat.

"My cat Miranda will suddenly fixate on a toy – usually a toy she's had for years – and start carrying it around in her mouth while crying. After she does this for a few days, she'll throw the toy in the toilet. "

4. The sneaky burglar.

"Instead of live/dead prey, she brings me people's dish sponges. She actually goes into people's kitchens and steals their sponges."

5. The very intense cat.

"She guides me to her litter box and then looks me in the eye, but only for number twos."

6. The feline who just loves to flaunt.

7. The civilised cat.

10. And this cat, whose tastes were very particular.

"My cat Poe went through a stage of sticking her face in between toes and sniffing the hell out of them. When she finished sniffing, she'd pull away with huge eyes and an open mouth."

12. The merciful huntress.

"The strangest thing she does is gifting me with presents of live worms. She never plays with them or kills them – if she finds one, she very gently picks it up in her mouth and brings it into the house and just basically watches it do its thing."

Submitted by Debby Murphy-Stevens, Facebook.

13. The hair-chewer.

"When a person just gets out of the shower, he likes to chew on their hair."

Submitted by Mackenzie Witherspoon, Facebook.

14. And the tongue-chewer.

"My cat chews his tongue like gum. It sounds like sandpaper. The freaky thing is that he looks you straight in the eye whilst he does it."

15. The cat who clearly gives no fucks.

"My sister's cat has knocked over glass jars and (full) wine bottles only to roll in the broken glass, but he only ever does it around me. Because he definitely hates me."

Submitted by Katherine Flaherty, Facebook.

18. The cat who's just disgusted by bugs.

"Whenever my cat Pearl encounters a bug she will stand over it, gag at it, and then continue to stand over it and watch it. She never tries to catch a bug. She just gags at them."

19. The eyelash-sucker.
