Keys The Cat Throws Her Paws In The Air And No One Knows Why

Keys The Cat Throws Her Paws In The Air And No One Knows Why

The adorable black and white cat, who is named Keys, has become a popular fixture on social media thanks to her strange manner of posing. This little black and white kitty has a fondness for sticking her paws straight up in the air.

It is not known at all why she does it, but she does. Given how bizarre a habit it seems to be, it is no wonder her owner felt the need to document it. It was Keys' weird little ritual that ended up making her a "pet-fluencer," with 110K followers on her Instagram.

All of Keys' pictures on her Instagram feature the cat with her paws outstretched, but here are a few of our favorites:

1) All Hail "GoalKitty!"

She looks like she's giving praise to herself - and that would be a very cat-like thing to do, to be honest.

2) Garden Yoga

There is nothing more relaxing than doing yoga outside, perhaps this is what Keys was going for? That would make her one smart kitty!

3) Big Stretch

Sometimes, all you need is a big stretch, a wide yawn, and to start your day with ease.

4) Caught!

Here, Keys looks like she got caught doing something she shouldn't have - a sight most cat owners are probably familiar with.

5) Hands in the Air

Here, Keys looks like she's got her hands up but is also doing the hokey pokey and shaking them all around.

What do you think of Keys' stretching behavior? Does your cat ever display strange or bizarre mannerisms? Let us know!
