This is my cat.
She’s…a little strange. I mean, most animals, like people, have their quirks. My cat has a foot fetish.
This is mild:
This is typical:
In fact, she rushes to do this pretty much the moment someone walks in the door. She will sniff feet before the shoes are off, then stuff her head into the first foot-related opening. And after she’s fully examined the shoes, she’s after everyone’s feet. Sniff, sniff, gotta know where ya’ll have been!
Especially men’s feet. I have no idea why. Needless to say, she can be a bit of a conversation-starter. And a source of endless familial heckling.
On the other hand, I suppose it’s not so bad. She could be like this cat, and have a socks and underwear fetish:
“Brigit, a cat in New Zealand, sneaks out every night and brings back socks and underwear that she’s stolen from the neighborhood. Her humans have tried to find the owners of the stolen goods, but can’t seem to figure out where Brigit is stealing from. Or why she seems to really love a particular brand of men’s underwear.”
So really, I don’t have it so bad.
What about you, dear readers? Do your pets have any bizarre quirks? Please share!
