My cat keeps taking my sons clothes

by cesly

My cat goes in the basement everyday and brings up my boys white clothes that he finds.He sits them by the back door.If I pick them up,he goes back in the basement and finds more,then place the clothes back in the same spot.(only white clothes or socks) What does this mean???I'm totally clueless...

i think we are all totally clueless when it comes to what our cats are thinking :)

I can't say why he is choosing these particular items he must just prefer the color. However I used to have a cat who did a similar thing with my things a few years ago. We never did find out what it was really about and it stopped after a while.

All I can think is that its similar to having their own toys, a sort of possession thing. Also these clothes may smell faintly of your son and he may find that comforting.

I don't think it is anything to worry about, and hopefully it will not be a behavior which lasts. Perhaps you could buy him some new cat toys to distract him from this behavior.
