For those that question animal brain power.....this struck me as just plain freaky...

Aparently my cat Nadia wanted to save exactly half for later.
She walked off on her foodbowl and left it like this one evening.

Or she could have just stepped on the side of the bowl so it moved to one side.

Cats do all sorts of weird things like that. If you say something to my sister's cat, she will usually try to respond with like the same number of syllables that you said.

She also goes inside of plastic grocery bags and licks them.

yeah cats do weird things. one of our cats will lick anything resembling plastic and the other one will lay on top of my head and purr rather loudly while I try to sleep, and some times I wake up at about 3AM and he's purring louder than he has before in his life, lying on my chest just staring at me.

Now that's pretty creepy.

My own cat loves to drink blue Powerade. It's the only thing she'll drink besides water (she won't even drink milk). She also likes to eat plain cooked pasta.

Yeah Tigger is kinda weird.

And a little creepy, too.

What an awesome-looking cat.

Here's my sister's cat (a few years ago, before she was full-grown):

Is that cat doing a custom aquarium or cooking?

That's just a pitcher full of some ugly gravel I'm never going to use. Usually when I buy a used tank, it comes with some old gravel that's neon colored most of the time. My Scottish/Jewish blood won't let me throw perfectly good gravel away, so I just put it in some container and stash it someplace.

I probably have about 70 pounds of unused gravel scattered around the house.

HEH ! that's how the infamous PGRL started...the purple gravel rocket launcher! The thrity I bought had the ugliest purple gravel and plastic plants....couldnt stand throwing it out so forever I had purple gravel on my doorstep cause I just didnt throw it out. I've finally upturned the container so the gravel has now been mixed into my front garden. Dunno if any of the nutrients are still on the gravel, but...*shrug*.

Yep cats do silly things. Nadia will play fetch with me, and she loves to eat thread. My older younger was working on a costume for the Otakan festival for a friend of hers (dress came out awsome!) but any threads she cut off we'd have to find and sweep up right away or she'd eat it.

My old cat ( ) would sleep on paper.....come to think of it ...Zelda did that for a while too...

Yes moondog she's smart enough to get me to feed her canned food, and once she's done scrubbing the spoon get me to move it for her so she can more easily paw her food out of the bowl and eat it off the floor .

careful with thread around your cats. eating thread will kill them if they eat too much.

Reminds me of a story my sister told me recently. She had two cats but when she moved house she gave one of them to our mum, because she was an outdoor cat and the new house was on a busier road than they were used to. The indoor cat stayed with my sister, but she was so used to having the other cat around that she would only eat half of her bowl of food and leave the rest for the other one. Apparently this was how they used to eat, one after the other.

Also, about cats collecting things - my friend's burmese has a thing for socks. She steals them from around the house and stashes them in her secret spots. She also likes to bathe them, and makes this weird growling noise when she carries them in her mouth. My friend thinks that it's some maternal instinct coming out and these socks are like pseudo-kittens to her, since she was desexed when she was younger. The funny thing is that she has a guilt complex about it - if you catch her in the act, she drops the sock and looks away like nothing has happened, and as soon as you turn around she'll pick it up again.
