Next time I eat something bad I’m going to try running from it.
You know, running away from things that displease you in general doesn't sound like such a bad tactic in general. Maybe cats are onto something.
Worked for my dad!
Unless you’re a cheetah in captivity. Then you need a emotional support dog to keep you calm so you don’t risk your heart from exploding every time you get nervous and wanna run away.
the sprinting away method should be used more across the board
Taxes! runs away
IRS: “sir, you still have to file.”
Blink a few times at the waiters first, so they know what went wrong.
My cat Luna does this with everything, suddenly she's just gone. Letting her sniff a candle is hilarious. My roommates and I sprint out of the room now as a joke whenever there's something we don't like and call it pulling a Luna.
That was my aunts cats reaction to anythung bad: zoom away really fast. Unpleasant food? Zoooom~ Weird sound? Vroooom~ Strangers? Ziiiiip~
You can never escape butts. Everyone has one.
No matter how fast you run, it's always right behind you.
No dude, you gotta chuck it, as far away as possible from you, and THEN run. If you run with it in your hand, oh boy.
I love that cats try to run from literally anything and everything
Did that with my ex-girlfriend. Would recommend.
I had a cat that would hurt you if she thought you were withholding some sort of minty flavored food. Obviously food products were targets, but also she would suck on your toothbrush if it was where she could find it. Had to warn guests not to bring any gum or mints in their purses because she would stalk them like a wild cat and go PRIMAL on any purse with peppermint flavor inside. She chewed up a tube of toothpaste once and got pretty sick, barfing up rainbow colored Aquafresh and Meow Mix all over the house... and then licking it back up because it was still minty.
I had a cat that would try to put his head in my mouth after I brushed my teeth
I used to be woken up every morning to my cat trying to lick the inside of my mouth.
My cat just likes to lick my eyelids.
my soul is trying to flee my body at the thought of you opening your eyes and having a spiky cat tongue drag across your eyeball.
I have one friend whose cat, upon her waking up, bit her eyeball.
Both cat and human are fine now haha.
He was probably watching the eye dart back and forth under the eyelid while sleeping and then it opened and NOM
Omg what a way to wake up. I'd never sleep again.
Yeah the human might be fine but what about the eyeball.
Both cat and human are fine now haha.
How's the eyeball doing though?
When my cat was a kitten, he bit my eye because my eyelashes scared him.
NO WHY WOULD YOU POST THIS REPLY
IM CALLING UNNECESSARY ROUGHNESS ON THE CATS TONGUE 🙌
I feel like this might cause me to wake up suddenly and accidentally hurt the cat.
This thread makes me feel like my cats aren't nearly as weird as I thought.
Yeah mine would also try to eat mint gum out of your mouth while you were chewing it, and if she wasn’t able to get her head inside your mouth she would just try to lick your lips until she could.
I had a suspicion and looked it up: mint is related to catnip; it likely gets them high.
Cats have it so good, getting high off of everything...
Yea when I ask my dealer for an 8th of toothpaste he tells me to stop calling
Gimme some of that OG Crest
Fuck I'll get you some kush Crest extra mint for a straight 40 stack dog.
Imagine if candy canes got you so fucking high that you lapped up your own vomit cause it smelled good. No wonder cats do weird shit to Christmas trees.
Well... yes. They’re both mint. Cat nip is also named cat mint. There are tons of types of mint too. Cat mint, peppermint, chocolate mint, apple mint, orange mint... and on and on. Very easy to grow too. In fact its a fair warning to never grow mint in your gardens, this includes cat mint, because it grows like a weed and you’ll never get it out. So its best to just grow them in pots. They’re perennials and they’re usually frost resistant so you can grow them in northern areas too. But they also tend to need a bit of water so probably best not to grow them in places where its very hot and dry all the time.
My boyfriend’s family has a mint infestation in their front yard. Last summer we tried pulling up as many “new” plants as we could and actually found, what I call, the “mother root” where all the new plants would sprout from. But now after some rain it’s basically how it was before
This guy mints
My ex girlfriend's family has a mint infestation that has been thriving for over a decade, if not two. Her mother gave up fighting it and eventually used to make us mint iced tea of some sort during the summer to sip on
So your cat is a junkie
No frigging wonder my cat always licks the shit out of the pocket in my scrubs that holds my mint gum. Thanks for solving that mystery! :)
His poor cat has a drug problem, when are we gonna stop handing out toothpaste like candy?
Every cat I've had has been appalled that mint exists.
But I hear you on the primal thing. I don't get how some owners can keep cheese and meats and fish out in the open around many cats, I had to eat certain types of food with dairy products locked in my room because I had a cat who would lose its mind over it like a zombie that could only do one thing in its life, hunt and stalk and eat dairy.
I consider myself lucky that my cats simply will not fuck with anything other than cat food. I had a friend who’s cat would swat his fork if he didn’t share all of his food with him. My cats always act interested if I’m eating something but I just have to act like I’m offering them a bite for them to smell it, shrug and walk off
Mine begs for food. If it is something he doesn't like he will walk away. He will sit at my side squinting his eyes and if food gets within reach of him he tries to make a grab for eat. I try to offer him some so he will leave me alone, he's not a fan of my spicy diet.
I had a cat who would get up in your face and meow loudly and annoyingly if you ate cereal in his presence. I guess he thought it was his meow mix since it was crunchy and in a bowl. If you showed him what it was, he would react like "why are you showing me this?", and walk away. As soon as you'd take another bite he'd run back and start meowing again.
Mine tries to eat my banana chips
This was a good read
This whole thread is talking about cats loving mint but I always thought it was poisonous and most cats run from it?
If my cat smells my toothpaste he closes his eyes and shrinks away from it with strong detest
Peppermint can be, especially in certain forms. A little sniff of peppermint can be enticing but ingesting too much or encountering concentrated forms can make them seriously ill
Catnip is a mint species, peppermint is a hybrid which might be why it’s a problem
After I had my son I used icy hot on my back to help with some of the pain and my cats would go full on psycho and try to go in my shirt and bite my back. Mint leaves make them go crazy too. Someone told me catnip is a type of mint leaf or something so I had to buy them catnip plants for the house just to get them to leave me alone for those months
Yeah if you put vaporub on when my cat is around, she will try to eat you. Also licks the deodorant off my clothes. Weird cat.
Awe this just made me smile so big. I had a fluff that was almost the same way. You’d know she got into your gum when you’d find the top halves of every piece covered in cat spit. I miss her mint gum addiction 😕
My 16yo cat is the same way. I wonder why some cats love minty things.
I once had a cat find one of those containers of Listerine strips. It chewed the container open and got one stuck on it's tongue. It's tail got about as thick as a roll of breakfast sausage, and it sprinted around the house as fast as it could. After that, it would do whatever it could to get any mint it could smell. It ruined several people's purses; many packages of orbit; and after it found out toothpaste was mint flavored, we had to keep our toothpaste in a drawer.
It was a good cat. It also literally went to the farm in it's waning years. I had pictures to prove it at one point.
as thick as a roll of breakfast sausage
what an image!
I especially love the twist, where the cat ended up loving the sensation and seeking it out in the future! Cats are so weird. I love them.
yeah that was a really good description, pulled me in
Haha nah it gets them high.
Catnip is a type of mint, so it probably isn't too out there to say the cat was getting high off of other types of mints.
Cats are seriously so weird. I think we should count ourselves lucky that such a ridiculous, cute, and overall, entertaining creature decided to domesticate itself lol.
I mean seriously like what other animal purrs? What kind of weird vibrating witchcraft of fluffy happiness is this thing?
My cat will literally stick its head in your mouth to try and lick and steal mint gum out of your mouth
Grow some mints for it
Your cat was a mint junkie. Lol
The most traumatizing thing to happen to my cat was getting a post-it note stuck to his booty hole in the middle of the night.
I'm sure you mean by accident, but now I'm imagining someone trying to do paperwork late at night, but the cat won't stop standing on the table and showing you his butt in your face.
"Ok cat, I'm tired of seeing it."
The most hilarious thing was imagining this happening to my cat.
I hope you occasionally gave your good cat some mint. Poor little addict.
I wonder if running increased the minty feeling...
When I brush my teeth, my cat jumps up onto the counter and tries to shove his whole face into my mouth to get at the mintiness. Cats are weird.
I had a suspicion and looked it up: mint is related to catnip; it likely gets them high.
I would love to see those pictures
That cat looks soft as fuck
You're 10 ply, bud.
Give your balls a tug titfucker
Fuck you, Shoresy!
Fuck you Reilly, I made your mum so wet that Trudeau deployed a 24 hour infantry unit to stack sandbags around my bed
Fuck you Riley tell your mom to top up the cell phone she bought me so I can FaceTime her late night.
Fuck you Jonesy you know what's gonna happen if we fight? Three things. One: I hit you. Two: You hit the ground. Three: I jerk off on your door handles
That made me laugh.... “wtf? F**k this minty stuff Brian I’m off”
Its like the anti-catnip. Catnip antidote.
But catnip is in the mint family...hang on, I have some experimenting to do.
My roommate's cat flipped its shit over a pack of gum once.
My cat stole a pack of gum off my counter once and chewed it all up. About a week later he dug into my friend’s purse while she visited to get at her pack of gum. It was then we learned mint and catnip were related, and also to hide the gum around him.
well, that explains why our cat is obsessed with digging our dental floss out of the garbage and then going nuts around the house.
Ohhhhh that makes so much sense now!
took me a few seconds to properly visualize a cat chewing on a full pack, instead of finding human-style wads of chewed gum
My cat will go into my wife's purse and take gum out of it and eat it.
My cat would like my Extra spearmint gum wrappers for a looong time.
Yeah my cat hates catnip. She won’t play with anything that’s stuffed with it. Just really uninterested with it. However she LOVES peppermint. I found this out when she started licking off my Burt’s bees chapstick and was chirping!
chirping?? also, ouchies to a cat licking your lips lol. my cat is a licking maniac when he's getting petted it starts to hurt! every time he doesn't lick tho he starts drooling hardcore and then will shake his head and spray spit all over me. he's such a weirdo! one of his favorite places to be is to be held like a baby on my lap when i'm sitting at the computer he just chills so hard.
Blink blink blink,and at that moment he realized he had made a terrible mistake.
do so many Redditors get the idea that cussing isn't allowed on the internet? Where could anyone possibly get that idea from?
I dunno. I migrated from FARK a very long time ago and swearing was not allowed in their forum to make it as SFW as possible. It took probably a year to break the habit
I feel like this is me at work...
-Things started off great and I was hyped up.
-Then I noticed something was off.
-And now it’s time to run for the hills.
I’m starting a new job in a week and now I’m worried it’ll be like this 😩
good luck dude
“Hmm this is interesting. What’s that. Oh no it’s getting worse...GO”
Probably way worse for a cat than it is for a human who doesn't like candycanes. Many scents and flavors from spices are to repel and/or kill animals, fungus, and/or bacteria. Humans adapted to eat some things that normally repulse other animals.
For instance, lots of smells humans like enough to make perfumes and air fresheners out of are things rodents hate, like eucalyptus, cloves, mint, patchouli, sage, and lavender.
One time I'm pretty sure I made a mouse puke with sage or lavender. I don't remember which I used. I was trying to get a mouse out from under a refrigerator, so I lit a sage or lavender wand and let the smoke creep under it. I heard the mouse scurry out from under the fridge and then under something else, then I heard a tiny "ack" sound, followed by a soft splat sound like a spoonful of oatmeal hitting the ground.
Cute & disturbing at the same time.
That's a cute story, but mice (along with most rodents) are physically incapable of throwing up. Maybe it peed in fear.
Huh.... the more you know!!
Yeah humans are pretty metal in that regard. My favorite fact is that capsaicin is literally a poison and we use it to season our food and at worst just feel sweaty and uncomfortable.
I always wondered why people buy patchouli. Lol I'm sure some people like it 😊
The thing with patchouli is that it smells amazing in VERY SMALL doses (at least to me).
But every guy I knew in my college days bathed in that shit to cover up their BO — to the point where a local bar started putting up anti-patchouli signs to shame them and would turn you away if you walked in smelling like fucking Bonnaroo on a casual Tuesday
Cats dislike any strong smells, citronella is an EZ cat repellent.
Rodents can't actually throw up, don't mean to ruin your day but it probably was just coughing. Mice make weird-ass noises, man.
Does peppermint oil do something to cats, or is it just a doesn't like kinda thing?
peppermint is mildly toxic to cats. When they smell the peppermint they automatically are repelled by it. They react the same way to citrus. If you ever peel an orange and your cat sniffs the peel up close they will act the same way. Peppermint oil extract, in its concentrated form, can actually harm cats just from smell.
One of our cats fucking loves mint and will rub all over packages of minty gum. We have to keep the gum out of reach or it will go missing.
Your cat goes missing when gum is around? Probably watch your gum... Seems fishy.
Lot's of people have described similar situations with cats in this thread. Seems everyone finds it a cute behavior, but I just think drug addict stealing to keep his high going.
Catnip is in the mint family! I have no idea if that's why I'm reading about so many cats becoming obsessed with it but it seems like a plausible correlation to me

Not about the post but your name, it's the best name I've seen in a long time. So congrats
You can see the moment of realisation, nope, nope , nope!
Pet owners FYI peppermint oil is toxic to cats, along with other essential oils. Please be careful even with diffusers!
Sorry for the sad fact
Edit: Thank you for my first silver friend!
Peppermint is different than concentrated peppermint oil. Eating peppermint leaves won’t hurt them. Candy canes aren’t good for their teeth* or GI tract, but I doubt there’s enough oil in there to harm them. A diffuser is more likely to be dangerous.
Edit- dammit autocorrect, how does teeth become teach?!
Yeah just read that some mints are toxic to cats and dogs. Peppermint is one that is toxic.
Candy cane uses terrible taste
Kitty is paralysed
Copyright claims on gifs on reddit lmfao wtf
What a fucking douche lol, claiming kitten gifs on reddit
“I’ve made a huge mistake...”
Isn't peppermint bad for cats?
Yes, in any concentrated form. Heard stories of people killing their cats by using essential oils on them.
This reminds me of Family guy, when Stewie realized that Peter was breastfeeding him.
Oh my God. I remember that
Well, she could have seen monsters coming too. Kittys do be like that sometimes ...
I MUST GO TO THE LAB
All other senses of a cat are so sharp and honed... except taste. Seeing the build up of a cat getting brain freeze is one of the strangest cat things cats do.
When your having so much fun and all of a sudden you remember your undone homework.
