Is it normal for cats to make a flying leap into a refrigerator as soon as the door is opened?
We have had several cats that could be in the room on the other side of the house, apparently oblivious to everything else, yet the moment one of the family opens the fridge door they come running into the kitchen and attempt to make a flying leap into the fridge. Sometimes they have so unwisely used their powers of stealth, they've almost got their heads stuck in as the door shuts. Has anyone else had cats that do this?
Not sure if many things can be classed as 'normal' with cats! They all have such unique and often amusing characteristics. My cat has her own funny ways, like insisting on drinking water from the bath tap instead of a bowl. She sits by the tap for ages waiting for someone to notice and turn it on! As a kitten she enjoyed jumping on the lid of laptops when I was using them, forcing them closed and almost catching my fingers.
Your fridge obsessed cats sound very amusing, it is possible they know where their food comes from if you have ever fed them from the fridge.
Just hope none of them ever get stuck in there!
Oh, your cat sounds like a riot! lol Thanks for sharing
LOL @ your first sentence! Definitely true!
She is very funny, sits on my bed at night and stares at the cupboard where I keep her treats. It's a nightly routine, and she doesn't leave me alone until she's had them lol
When I was younger, our cat did that. I think it was more because she knew there was food in there for her than anything else.
Our current cat doesn't bother with the fridge. He knows that if my mom and stepdad are in the kitchen, he can whine until they give him something.
Do you feed your cats people food? It could be they're looking for it. xD
I cannot answer that since I do not know about cats but at least you can grab a cat. I have fruit flies that end up in mine and I cannot grab them! I will trade you.
I've never had one take a flying leap into the fridge, but if they were in the kitchen when I opened the door, every cat I've ever had would stick their head in it. But then again, they did the same thing any time I opened any cupboard or closet. My guess is that with mine, it was curiosity about what's in there since I keep them out.
You might have mice living behind and under your refrigerator. Do they seem interested in it when it is closed?

I would like to help, if I can, to answer an age old question! Do you keep your ketchup in the fridge or the cupboard?! I'm going to be brave and start off the votes with...cupboard!

How often do you clean out your refrigerator?Since today (Nov 15th) is National Clean out your Refrigerator day I was wondering how often people clean theirs. Do you do it often or when it absolutely has science projects growing from lack of cleaning?

Do you get up in the middle of the night and raid the refrigerator?I don't, but after a late night out, I might sneak a snack before going to bed.I've heard that some people "sleep eat" not even realizing they've done it the next morning.
