It wouldn’t surprise anyone to say that one of the biggest unsolved mysteries in this crazy world is cat logic. It’s something so common that we don’t think twice about our cats acting weird, but the whole question “Why?” remains in the back of our minds pretty much all the time.

There are volumes upon volumes of books and articles from feline behavior specialists created to help us navigate through the weird and oddly wonderful world of cats, but they too seem to fall short when it comes to practice. From cat sits and cat crazes, to cats pspspsps’ing you and jumping their way through the ceiling in the middle of the night for no apparent reason, these are just some quirky things felines do.

Thanks to the subreddit “What's Wrong With Your Cat?” all catto owners have a safe place to talk about hard things in a bid to get this question answered one day. At the same time, weird cat behavior is the perfect laughing material that combines ensued hilarity, high levels of surprise, and unpredictable furry balls. Because honestly, the world without them would be a miserable place that we, the cat people, would refuse to set foot in.

Pss! Part 1 of malfunctioning cat pics from the same subreddit is right here.

In her own little floating "boat"! I imagine it's really comfy... warm from the water but still dry, rocking slightly and securely in the presence of a loved one... Yeah, I get why she likes it.

Cats get in the darnedest places.

Bored Panda reached out to Ingrid Johnson, the certified cat behavior consultant who runs “Fundamentally Feline,” to find out the expert-proved reasons why cats do such weird stuff. Ingrid said that it's due to the fact that their “bodies are extremely flexible and they are naturally curious yet cautious, so they get themselves into precarious situations quite readily. Cats also like to be up high, which is why you see the cat in the shower caddy.”

Ingrid also said that much of feline behavior that looks funny and goofy to us comes from their natural instincts. “Cats like small, confined spaces. They like to hide and feel safe. That is why we often see them squished into seemingly uncomfortable spots.”

This is why they like cardboard boxes: because cardboard can actually assist a cat in maintaining their "thermal neutral zone." The cat behaviorist explained further: “since cardboard is insulating, it helps cats maintain their body temperature of 100-102.5 degrees easily without having to expel much energy."

When it comes to some of the more typical feline behavior, Ingrid said that it’s their need to scratch. “That behavior is as innate as a dog barking or a bird's need to fly,” she explained.

Moreover, felines are “fastidious groomers, better than most other species. They are solitary predators and really do not need much help from humans with regards to survival.”

In a previous interview, we reached out to the creator of the “What’s Wrong With Your Cat” subreddit, which, at the time, had 200k members. Since being featured on Bored Panda 5 months ago, the community has expanded to 239k members.

The redditor just-a-traveler said that he got the idea to create the subreddit after seeing “What’s Wrong With Your Dog.” It was meant to be a companion subreddit for cat people.

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