It’s beyond belief how little we know about what we call our best furry friends. Ok, we don’t actually call cats that, ‘cause they would be better off without humans altogether, but we’d like to think we are.

I mean, we now have evidence that felines sleep in trees, form super weird shapes with fellow felines, and on some occasions, their .exe just stops working. Apparently, that’s not it.

People have a whole subreddit dedicated to sightings of cats that got caught acting super weird. Like weird². Serious about not being serious, we present you the most off-the-track cattos from r/WhatsWrongWithYourCat that either need some fixing, or I give up.

Bored Panda reached out to the creator of r/WhatsWrongWithYourCat, which now has 200K members and basically says “that's just not right.”

The redditor just-a-traveler told us that he made the subreddit as a companion to a similar subreddit r/WhatsWrongWithYourDog. Created five years ago, the dog community now has a staggering 875K members.

“Both subreddits serve as a place for folks to show off their pets being goofs,” just-a-traveler said. He was also laconic when asked about the idea behind it: “the images pretty much speak for themselves.”

And it’s true. We don’t know why these cats are acting so weird and stuff, but we may never find a reason. In the end, this is cat logic and the only thing we are sure about is that it doesn’t work by the book.

But cat behavior experts do believe that some weird feline behavior can, in fact, be explained. For example, when cats knead or “make biscuits” with their paws, it’s their instincts calling. Richard Gowan, a veterinarian at The Cat Clinic, believes that: "This action could be a marking instinct as the cat releases hormones through their feet. [They] might do it on your bed to mark it as theirs."

Meanwhile, if the cat is headbutting, it doesn’t necessarily mean they want us to pet them. Instead, Gowan suggests they are marking us with their scent glands. "When cats do things like kneading, scratching, or headbutting, they're actually marking you with their glands."

Gowan also believes that if cat refuses to use a litter box, it’s not always them being naughty. On the contrary, it may be your fault. “The cat might be thinking, 'No, your litter-box management isn't up to my standards,'" he said.
