Have you ever woken up to find your cat has done something really bizarre?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Please, I would like to hear stories about the strange things that your cats get up to at night, and the evidence they leave of their surreal nocturnal activities.

This morning I woke up and had a lovely morning cuddle with Sonic, but eventually it was time to get up. I threw back the covers and saw.... most of my jewellery had been laid out on top of my body. A gold chain on my stomach, chain and pendant across my shoulder, fake pearls on my leg, an ear-ring on my hip....

It was just too weird. Sonic had obviously knocked the lid off my jewellery box and then brought me gifts one by one during the night and deposited them under the covers for me, mostly on top of my body - all without waking me up once!

I looked as if he were preparing me for some sort of ancient Saxon burial - all my best jewellery arranged carefully on and around me.

So come on, I can't be the only one with a strange cat.... please.....

Maybe you should hire him out to a department store jewelry counter.

I was having a dream that I was falling through branches and that they were all breaking. When I woke up I saw that Scratch had demolished a wicker basket that was next to my bed.

Well lets see... it was last June... one morning around 4 a.m. I was woken up by a weird feeling. I had a computer and monitor at the head of the bed. My cat was apparently running around like crazy, and he jumped on the monitor and knocked it off of the table onto the bed. It hit the top of my head with pretty good force. I had a mild concussion and a pretty bad headache for the rest of the day. It was awful at the time, but it's kind of funny now.

Well, one 3 Christmas seasons in a row we woke up to the bottom tree ornaments lined up in front of our bedroom door....they had to carry them up a flight of stairs. They would do this every night for the entire time the tree was up - we always had at least 15 to 20 ornaments to put back on the tree daily.

Every night, usually around midnight - Leopold takes certain toys to the kitchen. There's a "cubbyhole" that I put the toys away in every day, and every night he sticks his head in there and picks out certain toys to drop off in the kitchen. He howls while he's carrying them.

Ok you guys got some funny ones

I guess the only weird thing I can think of that PHX does....

He's known to be the cat that if you put ANYTHING on the counter in the kitchen he will swat at it and push it off the counter. Well, we're having a friend stay with us for a little while and he sleeps in the living room on the floor-right by the counter.... We woke up one day and all of our change that we had put onto the counter the night before was now all over our friend!! Our friend didn't even wake up --- I mean I'm not talking like a little bit of pocket change either- I'm talking dollars and dollars of change- mostly pennies- scattered all over him... it was pretty funny I guess you gotta be there!

Maybe he is trying to give the guy some money to get him out and into his own place!

when raven was younger, he was absolutely OBSESSED with strings. that included stealing them out of hoodies (i even tied the strings, but he chewed through it and stole it). he chewed up my headphones into 1" pieces. didn't eat them, just chewed into pieces. THEN one night mike and i woke up to "thump....thump....thump..." of course we were in bed thinking "what the heck???"

so we turn on the light. there was raven dragging one of my Doc Marten boots into bed. and mine weren't the little baby docs or shoes....they were the tall steel-toed ones that weighed at least 5lbs each.

Geez, why didn't I think of that

Nothing so weird as adorning me in my sleep, but my cats can't figure out how to get into my jewelry box, so that's no real surprise ...

Spike likes to make the printer print test patterns. I'll come into the living room first thing in the morning, and there will be a small pile of paper on the floor, all with the same test pattern over and over again. He tries to catch the paper as it's coming out, so some of the pages will be shredded. (This is a cat who can't remember which room he left us in, five seconds after he left, and yet he can figure out how to turn the printer on and make it print test patterns. Strange cat.)

Oz doesn't do anything weird at night. He just sleeps.

My parents' cat, PJ, used to go upstairs to my and my sister's bedrooms and steal bundled-up pairs of socks, then bring them downstairs and leave them on my parents' bed like some bizarre offering. She only did this when we were away (like at sleep-away camp or overnight at a friend's). I think it was her way of pointing out the obvious: that me and my sister weren't at home.

On two seperate occasions I woke up to find either one of the cats stuck to the screen of my bedroom window. Another time I found Squee stuck in the cupboard where the toaster is.

Bella does something very similiar...nearly every morning there's a line of fur mice in the kitchen and she "talks" the whole time she's doing it "brrruuuuubbbbuuurrr" "meowww meoooww" "brrruuuurrrbrruuurrr"

Oh, I did wake up one time to discover that Spike had managed to get himself trapped in the (theoretically baby-/cat-proofed) cabinet under the bathroom sink. I'm still not entirely sure how he did it, because the child-proofing snaps only let the doors open about half an inch, and his head is definitely much bigger than that! (We've since moved all the dangerous chemicals out from that cabinet into one in the kitchen, which he has much less interest in. He can now play in the bathroom cabinet with impunity, the little weirdo.)

I don't consider that bizarre, though -- just very Spike-ish.

these are hilarious!! I don't think my cats have done anything even remotely as weird as these
post #20 of 26
I think the weirdest or bizarre was waking up at my normal time and walking out to see the paper tissue wrap from the toilet roll spread all over the kitchen.

My fear was that Whitey went to town with a new roll of toilet paper. Later I found out the Fiance had given him the wrapping after he placed a new roll on in the middle of the night.

Lately Luna's been super lovey and likes to share my pillow with me. She will position herself so that I HAVE to move...i.e, she puts her butt right near my nose and either I smell butt fur the rest of the night or move.

I wish that was all Poo used to do. Whenever we'd have houseguests, we had to tell them to bar the door to the guestroom from the inside. (She knew how to get the door open otherwise.) She'd go in there and pee on them in their beds. Guess she wasn't big on hosting.

Pogue steals and hides things. Mostly its chapstick tubes and ball point pens, but sometimes its my jewlery. I swear he's part racoon. When he was on this liquid medication that we had to give it to him via a syringe, he would sneak down in the middle of the night, and hide the syringe if it got left out. Once he put it in the garbage disposal...where it met its demise.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who's experienced this. I hate to admit how many times I picked up and moved those toys every morning before I realized what was going on. I was up late one night and had the chance to observe. Now I hear those noises and I can tell Leopold is at work again.

How do cats learn how to open doors anyways? PHX can open the bathroom door, by putting his little paws under the crack and then doing his little kitty magic from there?!!!?! I was going to the bathroom one time and my roommate (male) walked in on me.. I was like WTH!! He said the door was wide open.. I was like "PHX!!!!!" He does this so much now there is no point in shutting the bathroom door- so I announce to everyone now "Hey I'm going to the bathroom- don't come in" That way they dont walk in on me anymore... I kind of have to announce it in my condo theres 1 female (me) and 2 males-one of which is my boyfriend... I feel theres no privacy- thanks to PHX!!

Right now PHX is working on opening up the front door. He stands up on his back legs and REACHES for the knob... He knows the concept, he just doesnt have the strength yet to turn the knob.. one of these days he's going to get out I know it!!

That has to be the strangest thing I have ever heard. DH loved your story.

Well there wasn't anything weird in the bed when I woke up this morning - just Sonic curled up asleep with his head resting on my ankle so I couldn't move

Radar sleeps in the sitting room as he's not the sort of cat who wants to curl up on you (although he will definitely try to eat your toes in the night!) and although I've never caught him in the act, I am sure he goes through the wastepaper bin at night. The bin fits snugly under the coffee-table which usually keeps him out of it (he is a veteran raider of bins) but strangely the other day I found an old broken but much loved cat toy hidden under the sofa - one that I know I put in the wastepaper bin a good couple of months ago because it was falling apart. Now the bin had been emptied and refilled many times in those months, so he must have pulled it out and gone through it the night I put that in there, retrieved the toy, and hid it to keep it safe. And then pushed the bin back under the coffee table so we didn't notice

These other stories are fantastic, thanks for sharing
