Is your cat this weird?

My cat Mango is the weirdest cat EVER! He does not like to be pet. Except... when you are sitting on the toilet. Seriously... he runs to the bathroom whenever he hears the light go on... it has a fan attached. He will run in and yowl until you pick him up and pet him. Then he purrs and purrs. If you do not pick him up, he will jump up on the tub and rub his tail on your head and arm until you pet him. He is really quite persistent. He does it to everyone in the family too... Even the kids... who he really dislikes.

Anyone else have a weirdo cat? And what do they do?

  • My mother has a cat who hates being pet to until she wants her nums (cat treats) even then she will only let very few people pet her. My parents and I are the only one's she's allows to touch her.

  • I don't have cats, so thought you'd like a couple of these :)

  • My cat does that, too, lol. My female. Our male sits outside the bathroom like he's waiting for me. The female thinks she's a teddy bear, though, and will literally cuddle all day if we let her.

  • Ours runs laps around the house, starting out on our bed, jumping off, down the stairs, around the living room, up the stairs, and back on the bed. But only right after my boyfriend and I turn in for the night. Sometimes he'll do it five or six times before he gives up.

  • Back when I did have cats, they liked the taste of deodorant & hairspray. So they ususally lodged their attacks when I was sleeping, or at least trying to! Heaven forbid you fall asleep w/ your armpit exposed. And nothing like waking up to the sandpaper tongue running thru your hair! lol :p Or when they think since you're bent over the sink brushing your teeth, that your back would make a great place to sit! :)

  • Oh! And our male, he'll walk around at night and I swear it sounds like he's saying "Mamma? I love you? Mamma? Maaaamaaa?" lol

    LOL! Our male BITES my hair, like he's trying to groom it or something. Idk why, but he's done it more than once. And he'll cuddle with me, but he is scared of DH - he gets a panicked look if DH even looks at him, haha

  • I had a cat who liked cake. If I left a cake out, I would find kitty bites in it. The one I have now likes to sleep in the middle of the livingroom, on her back with all 4 paws in the air.
