Christine knew that something strange was going on in her home, and she was determined to find out what was going on.

She had no explanation how as to how her daughter’s stuffed animals mysteriously ended up in random places around the house.

So, she decided to place hidden cameras around her home to investigate.

What she found on the camera’s footage was absolutely hilarious.

The culprit was none other than her munchkin cat Batman.

“My daughter had this cardboard box full of stuffed animals. Batman will steal them out of her room and just leave them in random places around the house,” Christine explained to The Dodo. “At first, we didn’t know how they got there because we never saw him do it.”

It all started with a game of fetch. Christine said she first noticed that Batman liked to play fetch when she was homesick and he was about 1-years-old.

“He kept finding these twist ties and bringing them to me and I would throw them because I’m trying to sleep,” she said.

Batman would run to the thrown twist tie and bring it right back to her. While the game of fetch has always been perceived as a dog’s game, a cat’s instinct to stalk and pound when hunting makes cats really good at the game as well, according to PetFinder.

It wasn’t long after that, that Batman started with the stuffed animals.

“My daughter, at the time, kind of outgrew the stuffed animals, and rather than give them away, we gave them to him [Batman]. And then I would wake up in the morning and I would find the toys next to my bed. On average about two a night,” Christine said.

But sometimes Batman will bring her up to four. Because of the cameras, Christine was able to see how he carefully selects his stuffed animal and carries it up to her bedroom.

“He has his favorites. All the toys he picks out to play with, they all have faces,” she said.

Sometimes Christine lets the stuffed animals pile up before she puts them away just to show Batman that she appreciates all the “gifts” he’s bringing her.

“If I’m up very late he’ll actually take whatever toys he had brought upstairs the night before and bring them back downstairs to me,” Christine says. “He loves gifting.”

Not everyone understands Batman’s unique quirks. He’s the only cat in the house that is into stuffed animals.

Though he gets along great with the other three cats in the house, it wasn’t that way to start.

“When we got Batman home he gave everybody a hard time. All 1 lb. of him. His personality stands out,” Christine says. “He’s a lot more playful.”

For starters, Batman likes to bust out his crime-fighting moves on his siblings.

“He’ll do the scary little jump on the other cats and he would go for the tail. Just watching them play fight with each other is a lot of fun,” she says.”

But don’t let Batman’s munchkin size fool you. He’s super fast and near impossible to catch. He’s also exquisitely charming.

“He’s not much of a cuddler, but he’s just a really, really sweet cat. Everything about him makes him special and funny,” Christine told The Dodo. “It’s the way he looks and the things that he does. He’s just a character. We’re very fortunate to have him in the family.”
