Things cats do that would be creepy if you did it (video)

A great video from Buzzfeed of things cats do that would be really creepy if a human did it.


Both guys are hilarious.

I honestly laughed out loud.


My favorite, of course, is the bag full of dead animal.  As longtime readers of this site will recall, I was presented once, by Chris in Paris’ cats, with the glorious gift of a half-dead pigeon one summer a few years back.

It was 11pm, I was still busy writing, alone, and the cats thought it would be a neat idea to bring me an injured bird, which then proceeded to fly all over the apartment, losing feathers and blood along the way.

Funny thing about pigeons: You’d think you could trap them with a sheet or blanket? Not really. My solution: those French salad spinner thingies.  No, I didn’t spin the pigeon.  But it was quite effective having a dome with a handle on it to invoke the Cone of Silence over the thing.

Then there was the time the cats brought me a live cricket…

    I saw one on Cat Shaming where, upon getting tired of being ‘ignored,’ a
    cat decided to deposit a half-eaten mouse in her sleeping human’s

    I can’t believe a young woman working at Buzzfeed would think there is anything whatsoever remotely cool about wearing overalls.

    Our cats stay inside. Our vet bills are minimal. We have a screened porch for their summer enjoyment. They’re spayed, so no all night sound effects. They love us just the same, and the neighborhood livestock seem to like it that way.

    Sometimes when my cat does those things, she creeps me out. It’s the indecision that really upsets me. She’ll cry for me to open the door to the screened porch, but when I open it, she’ll take 15 minutes to decide if she really wants to go out. Also, I can’t figure out why she only plays with the door stop at three in the morning.

  • Half a bunny! Omg

    Reminds me of a cartoon I saw once. Two cats were watching their humans do yoga – one cat says “Who knows how many years of yoga – and they still can’t lick their own behinds.”

    My wife is in rehab right now from hip replacement surgery. So our 17 year old Maine Coon has realized he can get up on her empty side of the bed, and sleep right on my left shoulder, and sit up in the middle of the night and start purring and nuzzling me in the face with his head for attention, drooling the whole time. Did I mention he is a very affectionate cat? He and the other cat are indoor / outdoor, have their own door 24 x 7 access, and yes, over the years we have been gifted with every captured and dead or dying creature imaginable. The half a bunny was my favorite.

    The first year our cat used to bring his catch into the bathroom and hide it under the bathroom rug. Usually just bugs and 1 mouse.The next summer, a little wiser, he put the ‘thing’s in the bathtub. We don’t use the bathtub all the time so found quite an assortment. He did bring a live pigeon in the bathtub. I just grabbed it and put it outside.
    The last year, he started bringing his ‘things’ down the basement. We did have a live pigeon down the basement. They do play dead and it took us 15 mins to find it. Didn’t make a sound.
    Spring is just starting here and we are curious as to where he will bring his ‘things’ this year.

    That video was great.

  • Oh god, I hadn’t even thought of it snuggling afterwards!

  • judybrowni

    One of my cats brought a wounded sparrow into the house, flapping and bleeding anywhere.

    Nor, did I appreciate the rat with it’s head chewed off, kitty dragged up to my front porch at 3 a.m. one morning.

    And then wanted to snuggle, “No thanks, Mr. Bubonic Plauge Fleas.”

    Or the dead dove another gifted me.

    Brilliant. And so true.
