By now, we've clearly established that as far as household pets go, cats have some of the weirdest behavior of them all. But one thing that hasn't been covered is the way cats tend to run off mid-activity to go hide in truly random spots. It's always disappointing, and it's really no fun when you're trying to cuddle.
Pam Johnson-Bennett, a cat behavior specialist, explains that even the boldest, most confident cats need to spend some time in the shadows occasionally, as it helps them feel less trapped and stressed. So when it doesn't have a designated hiding place, your kitten may make some ... interesting choices. The examples below are just a few of the most zany positions cats have been found in.
Hopefully you didn't need your rain boot today. But look how adorable!
Clothes drawers are still fairly average as far as hiding places go. This feline might be feeling a little embarrassed at having been caught in such a standard spot.
Now this would make for a really good prank in a bar.
That just looks like so much fun. Don't you ever wish you were the size of a paper towel roll?

This one has a musical inclination!

Not sure that's really a hiding spot at this point. But whatever floats your boat!
This one's not even trying.
"You did not see me. Close this cabinet and walk away."
Someone's going to have to explain this one.
No matter what they do, they'll always be the most adorable thing in the house.
