Cat Logic // 5 Things Which My Cats Do

Cats! I love them! Sometimes though, I think my cats can be a little ‘odd’ with their ‘Cat Logic’. Here are just 5 things which they do which I think is odd but they see as normal cat behaviour…

My Cats

As a bit of a background, I have 2 black cats which are brothers/twins called Ash and Sooty – yes, very typical black cat names haha. They are rescue cats and we got them when they were just 6 months old after been rescued from someone’s back garden. They were very poorly when they came to us and it took months for us to see improvements with them.

When we first got them, the vet told us that Sooty only had 2 weeks to live as he was so poorly. 5 years later, they are 2 very mischievous kitties. They are devoted to each other and follow each other around, sleep snuggled up together, get into trouble together and work as a team to destroy the house.

5 things which my Cats do

They don’t go outside

Why do they need to go outside when they are safe and happy indoors? They see other cats wandering around outside, but they just have no interest in it. Sooty has made it to the patio area before, while Ash hid behind the sofa.

They are scared of birds

Why are the pigeons so big? Why are they flying? Arghhhh!

Cat Logic

Sooty will always leave one chunk of food for Ash

Not sure why, but every time they have food, Sooty will always leave a piece of food for Ash. I think it is a way to show how much he loves his brother. Ash is always happy to receive more food anyway.

They dunk their paws into their bowl of water

Before taking a drink out of their bowl, they will dunk their paws into it and then proceed to flick it across the floor. Thanks boys!

Apparently, this could be due them checking how deep the water is or the temperature. We’re not too sure why they do it, they just do.

They choose to sleep on an uncomfy floor or my laptop

Considering they have about 6 beds around the house for them to sleep in, they – especially Ash – will find a radiator, floor, laptop, piece of paper or sink to sleep on/in. It is really annoying when you spend lots of money to make them comfy and they decide it’s not for them. Cats really do have their own mind.

Do you have a Cat?

Do you have a cat and do they do any of the things which Ash and Sooty do? I would love to know if it is not just them…

  • We ended up getting rid of all the the cat beds we had since my two babies (Smudge…age 9 and Pandora…age 4) would rather sleep on the window seals or Pandora loves sleeping on Almond (my hamsters) cage. I’m so glad I’m not the only one with a pair of nutters

    My boyfriend and I recently got a tiny kitten and even though I’m not usually a cat person, I absolutely love her so much! Cats are so funny sometimes haha xx

  • Your cats are so adorable! ❤️ It’s so cute that Sooty always leaves some of his food for Ash, they obviously have a close bond! That they don’t sleep in their beds but instead choose uncomfy places also really made me laugh! Pets really are part of the family, aren’t they?

  • Oh your cats are beautiful They look just like my little baby Ebony (she’s not actually a baby, she must be about 9 now). Ebony likes to drink my left-over tea: if she’s in the house I won’t ever drink a full cup so she can have the remains. And we have up on buying our cats beds years ago because we know they’ll never go near them ha

    I have four cats, which seemed like a really good idea when they were cute little kittens, but seems less of a good idea now that they’re all fully grown. They all have their own little quirks – Spider will only drink out of a water glass, not a bowl and Mini is afraid of the toaster!

  • I know the names are so cliche, but I LOVE them, haha! I don’t have cats, but I love them and hope to welcome two kittens into my home someday.

  • Chloe Spacey

    I would love a cat. I’ve definitely heard of all sorts of mischief that they get up to though so you’re definitely not alone!

    I have indoor cats too!! The road outside is so dangerous and our two have always been indoor cats because sadly, like your two, they had a bad start to life.

    I love this post so much! Your cats sound a lot like mine!

  • Flora Halfhide

    I don’t have cats but yours are so lovely and cute, the names suit them so well!

  • marclamberts

    Such an interesting read! I don’t know a thing about cats though haha

  • Omg, reading this made me want to cuddle my black cat too (named BEAR!) So I went and grabbed him haha. What a lad. We also rescued our boy. Ah, they are such characters aren’t they?

  • Yep, my cat Harley is always dipping his paw into the water bowl and flicking it everywhere! I don’t know why they do it. Cats are a law unto themselves, that’s for sure. x x

  • My old cat Mika used to eat with his paw 🙂

    My current two (Leo and Silky) are indoor cats too. They’re happy enough and Silky is definitely too skittish to be an outdoor cat anyway.
