What cute things do your kitties do?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
My recently adopted kitties Harry and Misty have a couple of cute habits.

Harry has this thing that I'm guessing he must have picked up from the dogs that they used to share their (old) house with. Sometimes if I'm standing up and he's next to me, he'll get up on his hind legs and put his front paws up on my legs, like he's trying to get up closer to my hand so I'll pet him or something. (Surprised me the first time he did it.)

And Misty is always reaching out her paw and patting my leg or hand or whatever is within reach if she's next to me and I'm not constantly petting her (luckily she does it with her claws sheathed). I've even seen her do it to Harry.

Hennessy stands up like a meerkat everytime someone opens the front door...

And he sleeps in the dog's crate sometimes... Maybe just to annoy the dog, but ah well.

Rocky will stand on his hind legs, put his front paws on my shoulder, and purr in my ear.

My RB cat Taffy would do the same thing your Misty does -- she'd tap you with her paw if she wanted something or just wanted you to pet her.

Kisa May talks to me, I find that really cute. When I open my bedroom door it's always 2 or 3 meeps as a thank you, and she meeps when she wants a greenie.

Of my two (Lena and Larry), Larry is tthe most skitterish.

He's gotten pretty trusting over the past couple of months, but there are still times, if I surprise him, where he'll bolt. The funny thing is, I have a tile floor, and he tries to run really fast, but he can't get any purchase on the floor. He looks like a cartoon cat, with his back legs flailing on the floor as he's trying to get as far away as possible.

Yesterday, he came out of the bathroom, after using the litterbox, and he came around the corner and saw me and started to run, and was skidding, made it to the bed, where he bounced off the side, and went the opposite direction, skidding all the time. Then he turned around and skidded some more as he tried to get by me.

It's hard to describe, but I laughed so hard my stomach hurt.

Every night when I got to bed Cubby comes to bed with me. I have to lift up the blankets so he can get under them and cuddle. He will lay down and put his head on my arm and some times fall asleep there. You really have to earn his purr. It take a while to get him to purr silently.

Rachel will sit in the bathroom with you when you take a bath. She sits on the ledge of the tub and starts purring as soon as she gets up there. If you don't pet her she will try to walk on your chest. Most times she falls into the water, but she still keeps on trying.

chloe gets in her cube and will chase patchy, rolling the cube across the room. when i wake up in the morning, shes waiting for me to open my eyes and greets me with her little chirp that sounds like "mama" <333 when i had a seizure a couple of weekends ago that resulted in a big black eye, i woke up to chloe holding my head down and licking my bruised eye. it hurt like hell but the sentiment more than made up for it when i cook, chloe stand on her hind legs beside me the entire time, chirping like shes asking questions and she alsways knows when im going to open a drawer and tries to do it for me

as for patchy, when she plays, she jumps STRAIGHT into the air -- about 2 ft (higher than the coffee table) its so cute! when she jumps up onto the couch or bed, she makes this little yelp. i think its the equivalent to cat old ppl noises lol. when its time for her to eat, she wont eat unless you open the pantry, let her in to watch you get her food out, shake her food REALLY hard, and she has to watch you open the packet and put it on the plate. otherwise, youve wasted a packet of wet food. you cant use the toilet unless you pet her the ENTIRE time and if you dont, she yowls at you -- unless you have the tp in your hand. sometimes i hold the tp just so i dont have to lean over the whole time hahahaha

We call that 'cartoon running' always makes me laugh too especially Dude as he has rather 'froggy' legs anyway (he sort of splays them out to the side) which get even more pronounced when he's cartoon running

Awww! They all sound really cute!

Maisie does this thing when she`s asleep where she puts one paw across her eyes. She looks soooo cute then

Kitty is wierd when I sit on the sofa with someone. He has to sit in between us and casually drapes one paw over my leg. I`m sure he has a screw loose!

omg i love the cartoon run! its gotten even funnier since ive moved into an apt with wooden floors

i think pretty much everything a cat does is adorable with the exception of hairballs and other things in that category lol

I love the cute things all these kitties here do!!

Cartoon running.....that's exactly it!!

And then, of course, while I'm laughing, he's sitting on the rug with an expression on his face that says, "What! I meant to do that! What's so darn funny?!"

Lol cats are too cute! I spend most of my home time on the computer and my desk is extremely cluttered. My little babe Bugsy found out that if he throws something off the desk I will get up and get it. He will then quickly jump on my chair, lie down, and act like he’s been there all day sleeping. When I say “Bugs! Get out of my chair†he will lazily stretch, look at my innocently and go back to sleep LOL. Ill pick him, sit down and place him on my lap and he will give me a dirty look like I disrupted him! LOL.

My other cat Capone’s nickname is Monkey. When he gets crazy face and hyper he will run around with his back arched, and run sideways, its hard to explain but he will run just like a monkey. So cute!

Our girl Sadee loves to play fetch with her favorite sparkly balls, she insists that we play with her several times a day... When we wake up shes waiting for us to throw it for her so she can fetch it She comes back to us proudly prancing with the ball in her mouth...she makes us laugh

well to me every little thing they do is cute.

Mittens will be sleepin & if u walk into the room she'll wake up, & meow at you & roll over for a belly rub. shes one of those weird cats that actually likes belly rubs. she follows u around, meowing & when u stop she rubs against ur leg for some attention (she acts like she gets none, but she does all the time).

Monster gets excited, & will arch his back & run sideways, either toward u or away from you, its so cute, but he really doesnt do it much anymore, he used to do it all the time when he was younger. he also sleeps with his paws wrapped around his face, which ill post a pic of. & then he will flop down to groom his "area" & his tummy & it looks like hes sitting like a person, which ill also post a pic of. & his kneading, which i will also post a pic of, if you all dont mind, i think its adorable! he lays in wacked out ways, but ill refrain from posting a pic of that, since im posting 3 already.

here they are:

sleeping with paws around face

kneading & holding the blanket in his mouth

sitting like a person


& when Mittens grooms Monster, then shell start biting him, then it turns into a chasing session, which is also really cute! i love everything cats do!
