Cat Rolling Down the Stairs Every Time Owner says She's Cute Melts Hearts

A cat called Posey has melted hearts online after a video of her rolling down the stairs went viral on social media.

The video, shared on TikTok on Saturday by the cat's owner, under the username Rolyposey, shows the cat rolling down the stairs whenever her owner calls her cute, as she watches her, making sure she's enjoying the performance.

Cats exhibit plenty of "weird" behavior, and the reason may be that they just have too much energy to use, although some behaviors actually do have particular meanings.

According to ASPCA Pet Health Insurance these behaviors include head bumping, chattering, chewing weird things, kneading and knocking things over. Fortunately, head bumping, as well as kneading, mean that your cat loves you and is comfortable with you.

If your cat is chattering around the yard its most likely looking for prey, while knocking things over is a sign that they are frustrated, or they're just trying to get attention.

Another unusual behavior you might have noticed is your cat nibbling on plants. They may be doing this for lots of different reasons. It might be because they have an upset stomach and they find it comforting, or they may be curious, but it may also be because they want to get your attention.
