So you're probably getting bored reading my recent posts. You want to hear about how Mr. W is moving into an awesome penthouse outside London. Or how one of my nieces let a wallaby eat a trisket cracker out of her mouth the other day. But right now I feel like discussing odd animal behavior.
See, I've had cats all my life and I'm used to most of their strange feline quirks. However, my little 9-year old cat Zoë displays the weirdest behavior ever, every single morning.
She waits on the bathroom sink while I'm in the shower, sitting like a little bookend. And when I emerge from the glass doors, she starts yelling at me and pacing. Then she starts to purr as she walk back and forth. This escalates until she is in snuggle overload mode. She smashes her head against my body like a prairie dog rolling in the dirt. And sometimes she gets so drunk on snuggle hormones that she falls off the sink. But other mornings, she just hops down and weaves figure eights through my legs while I put on my make up.
The strangest part about it, though, is that she puffs up like a bottle brush. I've never known a cat to put its hair on end unless it's frightened or threatened. But not Zoë. It's like her bizarre little cat senses get so heightened, she goes into intoxicated fight or flight.
Anyone else ever seen anything like this? Or do you have another odd animal story to share?
