I suspect that all of our cats have their own favorite trick to play on their humans.

My two have taken to having one gain my attention in a very cute manner while the other one unties my shoelaces. Continually.

Hence they are now termed my kittybrats.

What tricks do your cats have in store for you?

Joe hides things. He steals items like my phone, keys and wallet. He also hides cat toys in my bed which is the reason all cat toys are soft.

Stealing my seat or worse, stealing my pillow. I toss & turn a lot at night and I am consistently flipping my pillow, moving my pillow, etc. There have been many times I go to move the pillow and it is very heavy. Hmmmm, I wonder why. Or if I get up in the middle of the night, by the time I get back, someone is on my pillow.

And if they are hungry-they LOVE to walk on my hair, back & forth, lick my face, etc, etc. They make it seem like they really love me when in fact, they just want me to get up so I will feed them.

Charcoal steals my pens while I am working. I work at home so it is a nuisance. I find them in the strangest places - even buried in his litter box.

Lily used to rifle through my jewelry armoire and hide what she fancied. I no longer keep jewelry in the armoire. It's all in a drawer now.

It's not necessarily a trick, but more like a cute habit. My girl Gypsy loves to lay in my lap when I'm in the recliner. But she will not jump up directly to my lap. She jumps up on the arm of the chair and then the back of the chair behind my head. Then she puts her front paws down on my shoulder (usually the left one) and rubs her cheek on the side of my face and purrs up a storm. She will stay there and keep doing that until I say "Yes... you may", only then will she walk down my chest and curl up in my lap. If I say anything else (and I've tried other words), she won't move. I didn't train her to do this, she came up with it all on her own. It's like she's asking permission to get in my lap, and I've never known of a cat asking for permission to do anything.

I have a Laz-Y-Boy rocker. My Electra will come from the right, jump up on the back-which rocks WAY back which gives me a start because sometimes I don't see her about ready to do this. You would think it would be easier for her to jump on the arm first and then the back-but nope. She goes right to the top. Sometimes she stays there but other times she will then come down on the left arm-usually after me coaxing her because I hate it when the chair is WAY back. She must have something for my head. lol

When Toby wants to go outside, he'll start rolling around on the living room floor and lay with his belly exposed. He knows I can't resist it, and as soon as I get up to rub his belly he leaps up and rushes to the door. I know he's going to do it and yet I still try, hoping I can get to him before he gets up. But of course he's much faster than I am! I never let him out afterward and he still does it, maybe that's my trick on him.

If I'm sitting on the floor for any reason, Nimbus will hide and then rush out and charge me, jump up with his paws on my shoulder, and start chewing my hair. If I turn and look at him, he gives me this like like, "WHAT??" and runs off before I can touch him.

He also likes to hide behind the recliner, and if I peer around the side at him, he'll leap towards my face and try to startle me.

These are little mock play-attacks. He never hurts me. He's just being a goof.

Cailleach is our thief, Suze is our food beggar (when they decide they need their wet food Suze will come and beg for it)
and the two cats and the dog love to play the lights on and off game. We have motion sensor lights through the house and they all 3 know how to turn those lights on and where they have to stand for them to turn off, just to turn them on again.

That's sweet catdad, I had a cat that would put his feet on my lap and wait until I acknowledged him before he'd jump up. They truly are individuals.
