I recently found out that my cat, Marv, hates it when I read aloud. He
starts to look at me pleadingly, paces around, and meows insistently.
He even climbs on top of the book and bites my wrists in protest.

My great aunt requested a portrait of Jesus for Christmas one year (she's
87, give her a break). So I found her a nice one and leaned it up against
a wall in my living room, intending to come back and wrap it later. A
while later I hear a weird scraping sound. I go in the room and my cat
has the edge of the picture frame in her mouth and was slowly dragging
it across the room. I yell, "Hey!" And she dropped it and ran
I still don't know what she was intending to do with it.

My cat knew how to press the release disc button on an Xbox. I would
be playing and she would look dead into my eyes and press the button...
It's like she knew I didn't save yet.

I smelled something funny when I was getting ready for work one day.
I followed the smell to the kitchen, where I found that my cat had turned
on my gas stove and was standing over the burner huffing the fumes. Needless
to say, I was forced to remove the knobs from my stove, and only put
them on when I need to use it.Loryn Brantz/BuzzFeed

When I'm sleeping my cat likes to wake me up by giving me kisses…on
the mouth. Which makes sleeping with an open mouth a horrible idea — she
has a tendency to attack my tongue.

My cat would get on the kitchen counter and eat the plastic wrap on the
loaf bread. Just the plastic, not the actual bread.

My cat hates the French national anthem. If you sing it from anywhere
in the house he will find you and attack you.

My cat really likes the song "I'm Gonna Be" by the Proclaimers.
Whenever it comes on, no matter where my cat is, he runs up to the stereo
and stands with his front paws on top of it. I still have no idea why
he loves it, but it never fails.

Our cat delivers socks — she'll sneak into our closets, grab a
ball of socks, and walk down the hall making that "I caught something" yowl,
and then drop the socks in the middle of the floor and walk away.

cats eat fresh fish?
by Joan Morris
DEAR JOAN: I’ve never fed my cats any fish-based pet foods due
to advice from a vet over 30 years ago. Too much ash for the male cat’s
urinary tract, etc. The manufacture of pet food has changed since then,
but when researching via the internet I find conflicting information.
What is your advice? - J. Clark, Pleasant Hill
DEAR J.: A lot of confusion surrounds the great fish debate and there
is much for the cat parents to consider.
Fish is not part of a cat’s traditional diet. Cats evolved from
ancestors that originated in desert regions where they didn’t have
a lot of access to fish. Their primary diet was small mammals, reptiles
Modern day cats, however, have developed a taste for fish. My Siamese
tom cat, Andy, was one of the few that did not like fish. He wouldn’t
eat any cat food that contained fish and even turned his nose up at canned
tuna and fresh fish.
A number of cats actually have an allergy to fish, as well as beef and
cow’s milk — two other items that were not a part of their
The main issue with fish is that given a steady diet of it, the cat can
develop a thiamine deficiency, which can lead to a loss of appetite,
seizures, and even death.
Here’s where the confusion comes in. Cats should not be fed a steady
diet of fresh fish or fish products that are intended for human consumption.
However, cat foods that contain fish are fine for cats because the manufacturers
add in thiamine.
There’s no evidence that the canned cat food or fish-flavored dry
food is harmful for our cats, provided they don’t have any allergies
to it. Sharing your canned tuna or grilled salmon with your cat, however,
should be limited to an occasional treat, and only in small quantities.
Fish is a good source of protein, but there are much better choices for
cats such as chicken and turkey.
