Cats are enigmatic creatures that love having us on the edge of our seats, waiting for their next bravado. Although not yet famous for their dancing skills, rumor has it they are ever so eagerly aiming for the stars, as you shall soon see.

Historically, many cultures have had their values embodied in various dance forms and rituals. Dance is one of the most important expressions of a worldview for people and animals alike. And while peacocks dance to woo their ladies, the silly cats do it because they know they dance better than humans.

Below is the list compiled of the highlights from the funny dance culture of the cats. The question is, can you spot the fine line in these cat photos between 'startled accidents' and genuine talent?

Cats are a common household pet but how much do we really know about these furry creatures? Sometimes their behaviors can seem downright strange but if you learn to decode your cat's body language you will understand them loud and clear. Chattering is when felines emit a rapid and intense teeth chattering. This most commonly occurs when they spot a bird outside and according to body language specialists it's their way of expressing frustration at not being able to attack their prey. Another reason may be their body's way of preparing to hunt.

Cats are sometimes aloof and independent but when they aren't doing their own thing they will come over and begin rubbing their head on you. This heartwarming hello is an adorable way of showing affection for their pet - you. That's right, "bunting" is when cats rub their head on you and releases pheromones that mark ownership. So who really owns who?

Dead "presents" are the not so pleasant side of cat ownership but behaviorists have multiple theories as to why these adorable animals perform this ritual. The first is that it is your cats way of showing you that you are part of the group and wants to share its hunt. Another reason could be that your cat wants to thank you for taking care of it (even if you feed it wet food and not dead birds). If you are looking to break this habit they recommend putting a bell on your cats neck to make hunting more difficult.

Pets love to eat everything and anything and cats are no exception. But if you have ever caught your funny cat chewing on wool, plants, plastic or metal this could indicate a more serious reason. Cats who display this kind of behavior sometimes have a rare condition called pica. The cause is still not known but theories suggested include: mineral deficiencies, anemia, hyperthyroidism, genetics, boredom, and stress. If your cat has symptoms of pica take it to a vet for an exam.

Ever received a kitty massage? Cats often perform a behavior of feline kneading where they massage their paws back and forth on their owners. The reason for this goes back to their infancy where they had to press their paws on their mother's mammary glands to produce milk. As adults when cats do this it is their way of showing contentment, happiness or just a way to alleviate stress. Your cat may be the boss of you but it still like to show love to its human mommy!
