Cats have a whole lot of weird obsessions. For some reason, cats have an eternal struggle with plants. They also have an unreasonable desire to instantly sit on our fresh laundry and cover it with their fur. Of course, they have their love for catnip, but at least that obsession makes sense.
The obsession they have with human foodthough, now that's a weird one. No matter what we have on our plate - whether it's food that they want or a cucumber, they will get in your face, and if you turn your back for a second, they will get in your plate, to try to... do something with it. Because goodness knows, most of the time they don't even eat it. Cats just like making sure that they're not missing out on anything, we're sure that's the reason. That, and also, cats are jerks lol.
