What's your cat's quirky behavior?

Brutus - whenever we pull out an interactive toy (like a mouse attached to a string) to play with our kitten, Kit, Brutus will literally run away and sit under the desk in our bedroom. Initially we thought that he didn't like toys that Kit has played with, so we set aside one particular toy for Brutus alone to play with. However, on one occassion we pulled out Kit's favorite toy to play with Kit. We had set up a baby-fence to keep Kit by herself in the living room (where she sleeps at night), but Brutus was by the closet when we took out the toy... and he started playing with it like a kitten! Kit couldn't get to where we were because of the fence. So I guess he's only "afraid" of the toy when Kit is nearby and able to play with it!

Another quirky behavior: we feed Brutus Innova Evo dry food for a late night meal. He occassionally will let out a yowl while he's eating, almost as if to say "I love this stuff, I'm so happy." He only does this yowl for his late night Evo meal (which he almost always finishes, unlike his other wet food meals)

Kit: likes to sit on the toilet and stare at the bathtub faucet. No apparent reason... just sits there and watches. She might be watching the dripping water.

What's your cats' funny, unique quirks?

Sheba has a shoe fettish. Before we got her spayed, she would roll around with shoes and rub up against the. Then even after, she still will cuddle up to a good shoe every now and again. My bf's mother came over the other day and sheba stuck her head inside her shoe then cuddled up to it. She is also known to use flip flops a scratching pad.
She is also very funny in how she plays. She really has little interest in us playing with her. She is a very independent girl and likes to do it on her own. She will find a ball, and turn her head away (like she's pretending not to look) then give the ball a good bat, then jump and pounce after it. Or she will run into anotehr room and stalk it. If we jump in and try to play with her, she will humor us for a minute and then go back to playing on her own.

JoJo likes to stand on the tub and get between the shower curtian and the liner while I'm showering. If I get close to the liner she takes a swat at me, sometimes I forget she's there and she scares the heck out of me.
Billie jumps on the bed, walks the perimiter of the bed meowing the whole time. Finally she plops on my stomach kneads the heck out of me then finally settles down for the night. This has been EVERY night since she was a kitty.
