Cats can be so strange sometimes.
One of my kitties,Lucky,LOVES those packing peanuts.She will tear a box open if she knows they are in there.We have some in our den in a box and I just gave up on trying to keep her out of them.(Mike keeps them to ship stuff in)She will go in there and get one and come running through the house with it in her mouth and she will make a funny meowing sound.If I pick one up and it makes that crackling noise she will come flying to me and look at me like "Give me my d@mn peanut."LOL.I don't know WHY she loves them so much.My other cats will play with them if they are laying around,but they aren't obsessed with them like she is.
Sometimes when I get out of the bed I will walk into the living room and she will have like 5 or 6 of these things laying all over the floor.LOL.
