View Full Version : Carrying Ty Beanie Cats

My cat Romeo (which is a male) loves to carry around my collection of Ty Beanie Cats. He picks them up as a mother cat would her babies and carries them around. Sometimes he will bring one and lay it down beside me. Other times, if I am gone for a longer period of time, he will get the cats down from their place and put them almost in a circle and lie amidst them. I actually was quick enough to sneak a snapshot of him carrying one!

Hi, Both my cats do the same thing. I'm always finding their stuffed animals in
bed with me when I wake up! http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif
My male cat, who weighs 14 pounds, likes to
drag this big old stuffed cat around the house. It's hilarious to see him drag it
around by the nose. http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/biggrin.gif
I have tons of photos of them carrying their
toys around too.

My Pouncer does the same thing. But he only has one favorite stuffed bunny. It's so cute. He makes sure Bunny is always around him and he even offers Bunny his food. He'll carry Bunny to his food bowl and set him down right by it. http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif

Very nice to know someone else's cat does it as well. Sounds like your cat's quite comical! I thought mine was just a little off his rocker or something! http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif

My Xena (4 yr old calico spayed female) does something similar: she has a collection of little fuzzy balls that she carries in her mouth, dropping them and batting them around at times. The very strange thing is this, though: she sometimes meows almost as if she is in pain while she is doing this--very high pitched and plaintive. She looks as if she is just playing, though. When I check on her she just looks at me like I am the strange one! She does this mainly at night and/or if I have somebody over.

One of our cats, Wispurr, is quite a hunter.Since she can't go outside, she "hunts" in the house every nite! When we get up in the AM, there's always something she caught - socks, towels, even tee shirts! We've seen her a couple times dragging the large things - straddling them as she pulls them. For a petite 5 yr old she's quite the big game hunter! When she does find "real"objects, tho, like spiders, bugs, etc - she only just stares at them - so I have to do them in!

My Marsha loves to hunt as well; her bounty consists of her stuffed catnip mouse, my dad's socks, or mom's knee-hi stockings. Like Xena (dani's cat), Marsha also does the plaintive, low-pitched meow (sometimes while holding the object with her mouth) but when you go check her, she's fine! We think it's her way of saying, "Hey, I'm a productive member of this household too!"

We had a siamese kitty name Shadoe that carried around a little black and white bean bag cat. We had just had her spayed when she stole the toy out of my son's room and started carrying it around with her. If she left the room and came back and couldn't find her "baby" she would meow loudly untill someone would find it for her. We always thought that maybe she knew she couln't have kittens and pretended the stuffed animal was a baby. I guess we'll never know for sure. http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif
