  • My cat takes my sons hot wheels cars and carries them around the house in his mouth.

  • Yes it's just like when they pick up kittens.

  • Our cat sometimes does that also. Nothing to be alarmed about- she's just being playful :)

  • We have a cat who loves to carry socks and pom-poms in her mouth. She also fetches. She was about a year when we got her in May and we have no idea of her past. She is a funny little thing.

  • My older cat rarely does that, but every other cat I've ever been around has. It's totally normal and ok, just make sure that she doesn't pick up anything small enough for her to choke on (like a bread tie or something like that).
