Your cat probably thinks the socks are toys. The strangest things - and the cheapest - seem to keep them happy. My cat goes crazy for q-tips. Go figure! lol

My cat Snickers does this also, but I think the reason she does it is because she thinks that the roles of socks are her babies. When our younger cat was a kitten snickers would treat him like he was hers. So our cat really wants to be a mom.

Our cat Muffin does this, but also with small towels and washcloths. She'll steal the hand towels etc from the bathroom stand, and sometimes the towel from the kitchen that I hang on the handle of the oven. I remember one morning we got up and there were about 7 washclothes and towels making a trail from the bathroom lol! She loves my daughter's socks too, whether clean or washed. I think she's just playing with whatever she's in the mood to play with that particular moment. Ahhhh....life with cats...

It's probably playing a game with you.

One of my cats does this as well. They are rolled up and she likes to play with them.

It has your smell. It probably is a comfort thing, they like having something of yours close. Like toddlers like the feel of a cushy teddy bear. Be thankful it's just socks. I had a cat who would steal my bras out of the laundry and hide them in his bed!
