The look of desire.
A sweetcat named desire
A stray cat named desire.
EDIT: Thanks for the silver, whoever you are!
Didn't really think I deserved it. But something weird happened this morning. A coal black cat crossed the street and came ambling up to me in the rain and started rubbing up against my leg and mewing at me. Definitely asking for some petting. Unfortunately some cars came by and scared it away before I could pet it. It looked like the sweetest cat! Now I'm gonna regret not petting it all day :(
Give this cat person gold!
Buy my cat 30$ bespoke special scientifically proven cat toy. She ignores. Drop bottle cap on the ground or leave my contacts container out and she loses her goddam mind.
All about the tear-off rings that come off of milk and juice containers. That shit is cat crack and I still don't understand why.
Edit: I am glad other people call them 'milk rings' too!
Yes to this! My cat goes out of her fricken mind for those and hair ties. They only weird thing she does is that when she “catches” a hair tie, she drowns it in her water bowl. Every. Time. I think it’s her predatory instinct. Too bad she couldn’t apply that dedication to any bug that gets in the house. Worst hunter ever!
Post drowning, my boy will then bring me the soaking wet hair tie and put it on my pillow. Never a dry one - only the wettest will do!
Look Mommy! I killed it!
Why do we love these monsters?
I mean, I do. But why do these feline beings have us wrapped around their paw finger?
Truly, the Egyptians were smart.
I believe the correct nomenclature is "jelly bean toe," scientifically speaking
Because when they finally deign to give you cuddles it's the best thing ever. Dog love is cheap. Cat love is rare and occasionally painful.
Sounds like my ex wife was an expensive cat.
It's all about the snuggles, baby. All about the snuggles.
They should not play with rubber bands or elastic ties. Can twist up their innards.
Okay- you try and tell a cat this.
I was looking for someone to say this. Its the first thing I thought when I saw the pic.
mine are probably aware of this so they drown socks they find in the vicinity of the bowl. always singles never a pair...
My cat drowns toys in the water bowl and leaves them there, which pisses off the other cat and dog who share the bowl. She doesn’t do it as much as she used to when she was younger. She also dips her feet in the water bowl and licks them, and puts kibble in the bowl and eats it. The other two hate the dirty water, which I refer to as her “feets water.” She’s basically the grossest roommate. And no amount of water bowls or fountains will get her to stop, she messes and destroys them all.
My cat likes crumpled up pieces of paper that he drops in the dog's water dish after he decides he's done playing. The dog gets the saddest look imaginable when she goes for a drink and finds a soaking wet piece of paper in her water dish.
CAT: <looking at the dog> <French accent> Ah....the simple pleasures...
Which you almost can't help but think the cat is doing purely out of spite.
Dude! I thought my girl was the only one! Pieces of plastic, zipties, crumpled receipts, anything she's dinking with. After 5-10 minutes she picks it up triumphantly, marches it to her dish and drowns it. Pushes it under and all. Silly kitty.
Mine too! He's 6 month old and recently discovered my hair ties. I find at least one in his bowl when I get home. Also, he loves pawing at gluesticks.
I just drag a shoelace on the ground and she goes wild. These cat-toy companies should all just be selling cat-patterned shoelaces or something if they really want to sell effective toys.
I think it’s because most cat toys are like basketballs—they bounce as expected—whereas the milk ring is all over the place, like when a football gets fumbled. The cat can’t predict where it’s going next so they get ultra intense and into it.
you, sir, make a good point
Mine really loves the bread twist ties
My cats love the wrappers off beers. I like consuming beers. We are a match made in heaven
I just pull the tab off juice and drop it on the ground. The cats go insane.
My husband’s cat plays fetch. It’s hilarious when I’m sweeping the kitchen, pull out the warming drawer under the stove and find his lost hoard of milk rings, gather them and then toss them across the freshly swept floor. He goes batshit got them. Toss one on the floor when you open a fresh jug of milk, he will come out of nowhere before it touches the ground.
Oh man those are my cat’s favorite toys too! She likes the little mouse toys well enough, but if I drop a milk ring on the ground she goes insane for it.
Yep. I have a cat that LOVES little pieces of paper. He is a trashcat
My cat gnaws on plastic
My girlfriend's weirdo cat licks and gnaws plastic, she fucked the shit out of my inside shower curtain
omg, my cat used to sit there and lick the shower curtain, even if the shower was going. weirdo
Same. All I have to do is walk in the door with a grocery bag and she comes running, or packages shipped in plastic. But she also likes biting chip bags so maybe she’s just weird in general.
So does my nephew. He’s 10 months old and loves to play with plastic and cardboard trash. I compare him to my cat a lot. Sometimes I mistakenly call him by my cat’s name. My sister hates it lol
I call my cat Hobo Kitty when she gets paper.
I had to go take a golf ball away from my cat, in the middle of the night. It sounded like I was sleeping in a bowling alley.
Back in the day, about 20 years ago, my kitty DESIRED cigarette clear plastic safety wrappers. They made a crinkle type of noise. I found the hiding place and there were about 50 stuffed in the crack in the wall, behind a huge sofa.
Fucking Qtips. Qtips everywhere.
Once had a cat that would bite off bits of a Styrofoam ice chest and spit them out. Took most of the lid apart. Taught my (then toddler) son to do the same. Never understood the appeal.
My cat is obsessed with q-tips. I keep hiding them but it doesn’t matter. He will track them down and he will kill them.
Mine likes stealing straws from to go cups. She'll even play fetch with them!
d i l a t e
Desire, followed closely by MUST KILL
This picture must've been take .5 seconds before the cat lunged at it
Them’s attack pupils.
Look... look with your special eyes.
Right out of Shrek
My cat would always swat them under my freezer. I found like 30 of them when I moved.
She’s such a naughty little klepto. I’m sure she has a stash of stuff somewhere but I haven’t been able to find it yet.
My cat would hide things in my closet. I moved out and found them all. It was rather entertaining
Over Christmas, we got a kitten and, completely unrelated, a bag of nuts (like the uncracked variety bag of nuts). Thought the nuts were disappearing quite quickly, but didn't think anything of it. About 2 weeks ago, I pulled out the sofa and found about 100 nuts. It was pretty funny.
I mean, some uncracked nuts are pretty shiny
Our ferret did that. She amassed a mountain of potatoes and ramen under a bed, along with other random stuff, and at one point our parrot.
I was with you until parrot. Didn't the parrot complain?
I mean it was being dragged under the bed with teeth in it's neck so yeah. Ferrets just latch on to the neck and hop away with their prey. It was a green quaker, so maybe not technically a parrot? Idk. Not the most formidable bird.
I had a ferret that stole things. It was also ultimately its down fall, when it decided to eat a pacifier it stole from a baby... He went too far and got a stomach blockage.
It stole gold chains, loved anything with velcro and at one point stole a passport with a valid visa. All stashed in a hole it made under the couch.
So a bird is not too far fetched. Actually a more natural thing to them is the parrot.
My friends ferret stole my whole iPhone one time. It had a rubber case on it, and she apparently grabbed it out of my purse without me realizing. Thank goodness for being able to ping it, or I probably never would have found it in her little stash spot.
oh, YES! i really want it, mom!
can you jes give it back?
i love it so! it keep me calm -
don't make me do ATTAC . . .
for i am CAT - i like the things
the hardest to obtain
you donnot know the joy it brings -
delights my small cat brain...
to have n hold for just awhile
n then to say goodbye
the castoff things - they make me smile
cuz I decide what dies . . .
so, yeah i never have enough
n i know you don't mind
(besides, i have a stash of stuff
that you will never find ;)
🤗🤗🤗🤗 LOVE it!!! 😻❤😼💖
I thought my cat was hiding them too. Then I found a puke pile with about 40 of them - apparently he was hiding them in his stomach. Thank goodness he didn’t need surgery! No more hair ties after that!
My friends cat had to have surgery. I can’t remember the exact count but it was a monstrous amount of hair ties. I was shocked and now I’m super paranoid about my cat playing with them. I’ll let her play with one every now and again but I always retrieve it when she’s done.
Omg that's terrifying. I caught my bfs cat eating a hairtye just the other day. I never thought those could be dangerous to them. Gonna be hypervigilant about getting the hair tyes back now.
At least it wasn't tampon applicators like my mom's friend's cat would steal. They found 10 under the fridge when after they bought a new one.
I once brought a guy over to play video games and my dog had decided it was a great time to steal a used pad from the bin and rip it up in the living room before we got there. Yeah, it wasn't a pretty sight.
We found no fewer than 13 hair ties under our hallway runner when we moved
My cat swats all her toys under the couch at 4-5am and then meows at the couch all night
"Here you try" 5 minutes later "cmon give it back its my turn... can i have it back now?... now... meow??? Neow? "
Then you give it back and Whoosh back under the couch.
Best part is when you get the broom to get them out, only to watch that idiot bat them right back under, then stare at you until you get them out again.
Half are under the fridge
A couple of weeks after I adopted mine, one of them discovered a fun new “game” to play: she would shove her stuffed mouse under the stove, then wrestle around and haul it out. Repeat until she would push it too far and couldn’t reach, then she would sit next to the stove and cry until I dug it out. After a couple rounds of that in the middle of my conference calls, I ended up stuffing a towel under the oven drawer to put an end to it. Kitty was very disappointed.
Is that a hair tie? If it is, be super careful.
My cat ate one, and it cost me $300 to have it vomited up. Once he ate it, it was like he was addicted and we had to keep them hidden from him.
I was going to mention this too! My cat had 2 surgeries for eating hair ties and headphones with his past owners before he adopted me (with old owners approval of course!)
Be careful and know where they are ending up!
My other cat is a sucker for rubber bands. If we have something that’s got a rubber band, it has to go on your wrist the moment it’s set free. If she catches the rubber band, or manages to secretly find one. She will hide it in her cheeks until you’ve left the room looking for it. She knows she’s not allowed rubber bands and will actively hide it from you.
Terribly clever kitty! At least you have to keep your house somewhat clean to know where all the rubber bands are off to?
Our house is spotless at all times. We’re both a little obsessive about cleanliness.
he just wanted some spaghetti maybe you should give him some
My cat does this with crinkly plastic. She’s not the brightest cat but she’s really sweet.
I try really hard to keep rubber bands away from my cat, he is obsessed with them though. I'll only have maybe 2-3 out at a time, the rest are locked in a drawer. It hasn't stopped him from getting the occasional one though. Then he promptly vomits it back up on my floor. I don't know what it is about hair ties that they can't seem to resist.
My cat loves individually wrapped cough drops. I almost never have cough drops, and In fact have gone an entire year thinking I had no cough drops until I found him playing with one. I try to keep them away from him because he’s dropped them in his water bowl before and I imagine the honey-lemon-menthol or whatever ingredient isn’t good for cats, but every now and then he just seems to magic one into existence for his own amusement.
Two thousand freaking dollars here.
On the plus side, I haven’t lost a single one in the 12 years since then and my hair tie budget is way down.
Same! The only one allowed in my house is the one on my wrist. The rest stay in my car. I will not have another hair tie cost me 4k.
My cat loves them but has never tried to eat one. He knows where my wife stores them and can actually open the drawer to get them. Yarn on the other hand is a different story and he'll have swallowed a bunch of it still attached to the skein before I have to gently guide it back out. Not too much of it but just enough for me to question his intelligence.
Had a cat that ate a piece of the green fake grass from one of the kids easter baskets. He passed it, kinda. Had to back it out the other way, after catching him beacuse he was being chased by a cat turd on a string hanging from his butt.
Wish this was top comment...it’s a thicker hair tie, hopefully it won’t get stuck.
My fathers cat had 24 hair ties in his stomach, luckily it didn’t get to his bowels. Cost them I think $500 for surgery, a two night stay and meds.
(That was 1/2 of other vet estimates, bc the vet the found loves animals and hates to see them suffer. He would rather take less money so a person could afford it and have a healthy happy pet)
I know that is very kind and noble of him, but keep in mind, vets have one of the highest rates of depression and suicide of any profession and a major cause for many is the student loan debt to income ratio. They worked as hard and paid nearly as much as human doctors to be able to do what they do, and do not have salaries to match. Not to mention, they can't help pets in the future if they go bankrupt from doing work for charity prices.
That is nice that he gave you such a huge discount- I would be sure to send him a generous thank you gift for that.
Same here. We had our cat in the animal hospital and it cost us huge because she decided to eat it.
My cat ate one and had to go through two surgeries, one to get it out and one because of an infection. Cost me $1,200 after I begged the vet for a discount. Now I warn every cat owner I know! It may be cute to watch them play with it but it's not worth losing your sweet kitty over.
Kitty has complicated needs.
My cat tries to rip them out of my hair. I can never have my hair up when I’m sitting on the couch.
My dog does this. Sometimes I’ll be woken up by him teasing one out of my hair with his teeth.
That's how playing fetch starts.
Bauble? That doesn't make sense here, either.
Do people call hair ties "bobbles?"
Yes, they do. Might only be a UK thing.
might even only be a Midlands/northern thing... haven't heard them being called bobbles since i moved to London from the Midlands
Nah people call them bobbles in the South too, I grew up calling them bobbles! I think I've also heard them being called 'hair elastics' too but that is such a distant recollection in my brain lmfao.
To the kitty I think its a perfect description. Its a small trinket or adornment. Kitty probably thinks it’s ridiculous and entertaining and coveted. 😂
Came here to ask this. I thought I've heard people call hair ties strange things, but this one is new.
Don't worry I call them bobbles.
My cat plays fetch with them. Someone will toss it and she'll get it and bring it back to have use throw it again
My cat does too! It is the cutest thing. He’ll play by himself too, looping it in his paw and tossing it up in the air to catch.
both my babies used to play fetch, but they grew out of it. cats playing fetch is the cutest thing!
Throw them slippers out god damn
Hair tie budget is very large. No money for new slippers
Be careful with cats and hair ties. Some cats will eat a bunch of them and they can be stuck in their stomach and need endoscopy or surgery to remove them. Some cats don’t ever swallow them.
My cat learned that I put my hair tie in my jewelry box on the counter while I'm in the shower (I cant stand it being wet on my wrist). She will literally wait for me to get out of the shower, then once I'm not in the bathroom and she thinks I'm not paying attention, she'll jump on the counter, carefully open the drawer with her paw, and get the hair tie
The eyes say "it jumps", but the body says "if it fits" OvO
One time my cat ate an entire package of those and I had to spend 3k to get the vet to remove them so he didn’t die.
Just a fun fact for the day.
Don't let him/her swallow it!
Khajit has wares, if you have the bobble.
You should be very careful that your cat doesn’t eat the bobbles.
My kitten ate one and it seriously messed up her stomach (I think it was twisted, I can’t quite remember) and she ended up dying when she hid (cats will hide in a safe area when they feel it is there time to die) and we couldn’t find her to give her her medicine.
Oh gosh my kitty ate a few but she puked them up. It was months ago but she’s been acting fine since then. Should I still bring her to the vet? How did your cutey act after it happened?
I am very sorry for your loss.
My cat plays actual fetch with hair ties! He brings them back.
...he also at night puts them under my bedroom door...? So I used to wake up (when I lived with my parents) with like 3-5 different colored hair ties right by my door. Or I’d wake up to loud banging noise against the door and see his little paw go underneath 😂
My friend’s cat, Bean, swallowed those often. One day Bean was really out of sorts and was brought to the vet. The vet performed surgery on his bowel and removed the foreign material. If the material remained in Bean’s gut, Bean would have died. Several months later the exact same thing happened and Bean is no longer with us. My friend had to make the gut-wrenching decision to put him down. It seems cruel, I know, but due to extenuating circumstances, that was the only route, albeit a depressing one. RIP Bean. Be careful with your friendly feline.
My cat loves to steal these and put them in his food bowl. I found 5 in his bowl once!! 5! He also likes to just carry them around.
Those slippers are filthy
I can’t use the traditional black hair ties anymore because my cat thinks they are hers. She will scratch at my wrist if she sees it. I have to buy those spiraled ones instead lol
A bobble is what you call a hair tie?
My cat is obsessed with hair ties and cries for them too. She want to play fetch with them.
The hair tie is every cats favorite toy.
I like that word for them. Bobble. I like it. I like you, well done
Get you a man that looks at you the way that cat looks at that bobble
