Do you think you have the weirdest cat in the world? It turns out most people do, and they’re both right and wrong. Namely, cats’ behaviors, however strange they may seem, are pretty similar no matter where you go. Someone on Twitter asked people to share the weird things their cats do, and you can probably guess that the answers involve a lot of theft, knocking things over, turning on faucets, and staring ominously.

Take a look at some of the mischief and destruction other people’s silly cats get up to and comment with your own below!

My cat does the same, except that he chooses to hide in my wardrobe.

Why are our adorable cats so fascinated with all the fixtures in the bathroom? Vets suggest that this might come from their wild instincts—still water in the great outdoors isn’t so fresh, and drinking from a bowl in a corner or up against a wall might feel like a vulnerable position. The flowing water that comes out of the sink or shower is simply more appealing for both of those reasons. There’s no wild explanation for why these weird cats like to use sinks as beds, but a sink is perfectly cat-sized and the porcelain might feel fresh and cool in hot weather.

If your pet cat is using inappropriate places as a toilet, though, there are several explanations. The first thing to try is always to take them to the vet for urine and blood analysis, because they could be acting out to show that they don't feel well.

If they have a clean bill of health, the problem could be that the litter box is not clean enough (in addition to frequent scooping, the box itself should be scrubbed out once a week,) in an inconvenient place (upstairs or downstairs, in a room that the cat finds unpleasant, or near their food,) or too small. If you have more than one cute cat, there could be a bullying situation preventing one from using the litter box, in which case the solution is to provide more boxes.

I trained my cat to pee/poop in the toilet. It's not hard if you do it while they're a tiny kitten. Just pick the poop and put it in the toilet, pick the cat, tell it where it should be. Repeat for a few days. Cats are smart creatures.

I put my toilet seat cover down before I flush. My cat therefore cannot do her business there. I put it down because it is nasty when you flush with the lid open. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2mXYFdziGU

I totally agree that's it's gross to not flush with the lid down... which is why back when our cats used the toilet, we would close the lid when we flushed - and then reopened it afterward for the cats.

Mine does, too! he taught himself. And if i get up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, he will get up also and *race ahead of me* to jump on the toilet first! Little stinker.

I've always been astonished at those able to teach their cats to do this (there are instructional books and videos). If the cat does it without training?? Now THAT would be really amazing.

I had a cat that did EXACTLY THAT! He just started by himself - even closed the door. The first time my daughter and her friend discovered him and called me at work to tell me and I had her take a photo FAST while he was still there! This was LONG before camera phones! He was an AMAZING little guy in many ways and I still miss him these many years later!

The spine of the cat will not thank you for that when the cat is older. It is an unnatural pose and strains the spine and joints heavily.

We had a kitty that did this. We didn't train her to do it -- I woke up one night to the sound of "water running" and there she was. It saved a lot of litter over the years.

I had one cat who would pee over the bathtub drain - big mistake. It corroded the drain altogether and had to be replaced.

That's actually a condition called hyperesthesia. In some cats it's just cute, but in ones like mine, he'll catch his tail and bite it enough to draw blood if he doesn't get his medication. It's due to a nerve disorder where he has tiny seizures resulting in twitching on his back and skin. To him it feels like someone is poking him, then he turns around and sees his tail and figures it's his F-ING TAIL! MUST KILL TAIL! It's sometimes called 'rippling skin syndrome' because that's what it looks like before he tries to catch his tail. Easily treatable with meds that don't have a long term negative effect. This has been my PSA for the day
