Sorry to report that my cats do nothing out of the ordinary. THis is because it is quite ordinary for cats to be insane.

They seem to enjoy riding on things, my guys like to run and jump on the chairs that have wheels and slide across the floor. I've had other cats that did that too.

I'm a thoroughgoing disbeliever in anything supernatural, but the behavior of cats seems to lift the corner of that possibility (though I would, frankly, prefer an alternate explanation--I just don't know of any.)

When Edward I ('the first') died, he had a limp. A cat I immediately fostered, in the same house, developed an identical limp. We moved and the limp went away. An easy explanation is that Edward was haunting the house he died in. There were some other unexplained oddities; it's been so long I've forgotten them--but it was very odd, indeed.

And of course, everyone has the experience of a cat staring at some corner of the room (the ceiling, usually), as if there is something to look at, when there is nothing there. Explain that, if you will.

Yep that one gives me the creeps, the other one is when they are asleep and suddenly wake up and stare at a door or window. When they do it at night I have to get up and check even though I know they are just messing with me

I'm about ready to pull my hair out with Charcoal and his new "fun" game.

He has his own room where he sleeps with the door shut at night. Otherwise, Lily and I would not get any sleep. He puts himself to bed everynight between 1030 and 11pm. I shut the door and he goes to sleep.

He uses his litter box overnight.

I use crystals.

By morning, he's kicked all the dried poop out of the box and is busy playing soccer with it!!!!!!!

WHY WHY WHY?????????

He has toys galore........everything a cat could possibly want. But, no......poop soccer is more fun.

ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I don't see how you can stand that crystal stuff; I bought some of it once and it was little hard, well, crystals, that injured my feet when I stepped on them. Could that be the problem? That's really a deal breaker with me; that's a tough problem and I have no idea how you could make him stop, either.

I've had him over a year and it just started. Both he and Lily have used crystals almost exclusively. I tried clumping litter, but it stuck to Charcoal's long fur.

If I could just get him on the same potty schedule as Lily - who poops mid morning...............
