12 Reasons Your Cat Thinks That YOU’RE WEIRD!


I just finished going through the latest edition of a magazine that I received. I was laughing so hard at one of the features they had for the month and wanted to share this with you along with pictures. In order not to violate any copyright laws, the wording will be changed to protect the innocent. (Me!) Enjoy.

1. You don’t hang from anything!

Hang in There

Don’t you humans know that curtains are fun to hang from? Or anything else for that matter!

2. You don’t race around the house at odd hours.

The fun is finding out where you finally end up before you lie down to rest! It’s always a surprise.

3. You don’t sleep all day long.

Mission Get Out of Bed

Ruins the Day

There’s no sense in getting up if you don’t feel like it! We need our 15-16 hours of sleep. Humans spend too much  time and energy in worrying about everyday things. Just relax and be cool.

4. You don’t hack up hairballs or anything else.

I Don't Always Eat Spiders

Was That Your Shoe

Come on, what’s wrong with that. No big deal. If you have to get rid of something, you just do it. Which brings me to my next point. When you barf, you always have to do it in that big white bowl. Geez! You don’t barf on anything like chenille, silk, cashmere, or a sweater left on the floor. In fact, you don’t barf on ANYTHING good!

5. Some of you don’t raise chickens.

A Wild McNugget

Most of you don’t even pluck your own chickens or traffic in chickens in any way. Hummm, chicken sounds pretty good right now!

6. You don’t have cardboard box furniture.

7. You don’t stare at anything.

Fascinated by Nothing

What Are We Looking At

 Don’t you know that you have to keep staring because you might miss something!

8. You don’t play with packages that come in the mail.

Wrong Color

You don’t stand or sit on them. You don’t even squat in them. You don’t do anything except open them. What kind of weirdness is that?

9. You don’t use the couch as a play toy.

Spoil Sport

Don’t you know that’s what couches are for? As a side note, they’re great for clawing and sharpening your nails!

10. You don’t leave food on pillows or inside of shoes.

I Has a Car

11. You don’t understand the complexities of inside/outside.

I Was Looking Outside

12.  You don’t bite ankles.

Zombie Cats

But, zombie cats do bite ankles to get to the brains. You don’t bite your friend’s ankles or even your enemy’s ankles. Is that any way to play?

The magazine gave 48 reasons in all; I combined some of them. Didn’t have pictures for everything, so I chose the cutest ones I could find. Hope you enjoyed it!

Cat Behaviors With NO Explanation


Previously, I shared 15 cat behaviors complete with explanations. (I admit that some of these were pretty creative!)  Today, we’re talking about cat behaviors that seem perfectly logical to cats. (Remember, I said cats.) I think it’s part of the rule that they need to find the space to sit or lay where it’s the most inconvenient for you. Anyway, let me know what you think.

If It Fits, I Sits Rule

Go Away

How Did That Get In There

Da Hood

Being In The Way Rule

I Just Work Here

My cat, Sandy, LOVED the file cabinets. Anytime I would be working at the desk, she would be in a file cabinet drawer or a drawer in the desk. She was my official “catretary”.

I Want To Take Over the World

It’s Warm Rule

Catnuts Roasting on an Open Fire

To Unlock Your Computer, Open the Fridge

Silence, Human

Buying a Box

I Play Well With Others

Frame the Dog

 Does your cat exhibit these behaviors? If they do, don’t worry! You’ll never figure it out anyway. Share your stories with us, please.

Jake, the Space Cat


Time for another original story!

Jake was born on the Starship Enterprise millions of miles away from Earth.  When he was old enough to be away from his mother, he could roam all over the ship.  The crew members treated him very well and enjoyed having him around.  Of course, if they were under attack, Jake would hide until everything quieted down.  This didn’t happen very often, but when it did, there was a lot of noise and confusion.  Jake always thought everything would turn out okay, so he was never too scared.  He enjoyed looking out of the windows and seeing the blackness of space and the twinkle of the stars.

One day Jake heard the crew members talking about “going home”.  What did that mean?  The ship WAS home, for goodness sake.  He learned that they were going to a place called Earth so the crew members could rest and take what they called a “vacation”.  They were very excited which made Jake excited too.  A new place to explore!  He could hardly wait.

Finally, the big day came.  Everybody was leaving the ship and Jake had to leave too.  One of the crew members carried him off the ship and into the Starfleet Command Center.  Jake didn’t know what to think!  He had never seen grass, trees, clouds, birds, and all of the other things on Earth.  He felt like his eyes were going to pop out of his head because there was so much to see!  As the days went on, Jake was able to explore everything around the Command Center to his heart’s content.  When it was time to leave Earth on another mission, these were Jake’s thoughts.
