Why does my cat open containers?

Your cat is obviously starving!  Just kidding.

This trick or learned behavior by your cat shows how persistent and smart these felines can be.  Cats are preoccupied almost exclusively with food.  Cats by nature are predatory, they are driven to find food sources.  This need is all consuming.   A cat will not let something as trivial as a lid get between itself and food.  The only cat proof way to keep your cat from opening a container is to put it under lock and key.

Disclaimer: As of this time cats do not know how to use keys…this may change in the future.

Why does my cat stand like a person?

You have a very talented cat!

Your cat is standing on two feet because he has discovered the joys of being taller.  Your cat got tired of being picked on by all the taller cats and decided to do something about being so little.  Now that he has discovered how to stand like a person he has all the best views in the place, he can scope out all the best nap areas, see all the sources of food and can look down on all the cats who picked on him.  We of course encourage your cat to be the bigger cat and stop the cycle of cat on cat bullying.

Enjoy the view!
