Cat Keeps Bringing Home Sponges And Does Zero Cleaning

If you’re gonna show up with cleaning supplies, you are expected to pitch in on said cleaning. Otherwise, it sends a weird message. And when you’re a cat who shows up with cleaning supplies, the message gets even weirder. But that’s exactly what Reddit user Funkmonk_360’s cat has been doing.

Milo the cat has a strange habit of hunting sponges—not birds or mice or even bird or mice cat toys. And he keeps bringing the sponges home.

Instead of offering dead mice or birds as gifts to his owners, he gives them sponges. So far, they’ve been different shapes, and there’s no word on where the sponges are coming from.

Is he trying to tell them the house is not up to his standard of cleanliness? Does he think he’s being resourceful? Whatever the reason, it’s a hilarious and adorable habit.
