Indecision, Comfort and Bathing

Why can't I just sit down?  Why is it that, to find just the right position I have to circle a spot once, twice, maybe even a third time, then twist myself into my favorite position?
     I have this same problem going from point A to point B.  I decide I want to sit up on the back of the loveseat, for example, and instead of going from where I'm standing RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE DAMN THING I jump up onto mom's lap in her rocker next to it, jump onto the arm of the loveseat, step over dad's lap and across the cushion, then, finally climb up onto the back of it.  What, exactly did God have in mind when he gave feline's their thought process and decision-making skills?  Or how about their inability to feel shame?  I seem to have no problem whatsoever plopping down on mom or dad's lap, or on top of them in their bed and lifting my leg to start lapping at my privates.  Sometimes I even manage to lift both legs, my feet high in the air, and just go to town washing my already-neurotically-obsessively-cleansed groin area. 
     And while I'm on a roll here, why do I have to walk over my food and water dishes, turn around, and sit at them from behind with my back to the wall?  Why can't I just approach them from the front and eat and drink?

All animals, big and small, have their idiosyncrasies! Just think of dogs. Why do they have to sniff people's groins before any other part of their body? Why are they unable to stop barking when a stranger comes to the door? And let's not even talk about the strange habits of humans! :)

I know the answers to those questions. But I am not telling!

On the other paw, why should you do anything live everyone else?

When (IF) you figure it out, please let us know. Because we are just as crazypants as you!

Those are good questions! Mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter!

Athena said...

All good questions! You sound like a mancat who has your own way of doing things and I think that's just fine!

One of my boys sometimes lifts both his legs in the air :-) You have many things you have to figure out...I hope you find the answer!

Thanks for coming to visit my 3-Ds and saying hello.

The one thing I know is that kitties like to take their time doing things, and be as exasPURRating as possible while they're doing it.

Let's just face it -- cats are PURRverse!

Hi Orbit! It's nice to meet you and thanks for visiting our bloggie. There are many cat mysteries, aren't there? We feel it's impawtant to keep our people guessing! Have a great day!

Fraidy cats Pip, Smidgen, Minnie (and Hollie too!)

Orbit, were you a stray kittie for a while? Some of the quirks you list sound like things we used to do, back before we were sure we had our noo furrever home.
