This seems to be a week of funny cat stories on more legitimate news feeds (aka not cheezeburger). I enjoyed the article You’re not crazy, your cat is on Huff Post. It talked about why cats do the weird things they do such as why they like boxes so much.
For security, mostly. Cats are instinctively drawn toward boxes because they’re protected on three sides and can watch what’s going on around them through the opening. You can’t sneak up and scare your cat when it’s in a box. Or so they think.
That reminded me of Anastasia. Most of my cats have had a very real idea of how to hide effectively. Stasia, not so much.
No one could see her. She was completely hidden. Neither Zoe nor Charlie spend a lot of time hiding. Zoe likes to go under a blanket sometimes.
You can also learn to predict the weather using your cat. Apparently big storms are constantly headed our way since Charlie snores a LOT. Or it could be that he’s getting really fat. I wonder what it means when a cat washes another cat behind the ears?
