Once I was traveling with my cat; she liked to crouch (in the “meatloaf” position) on the back shelf and look out the window. Once, when I stopped for gas, there were two little kids looking at my car. THe cat got up, stretched, then curled up again, and one of the kids said, “Holy cow! That’s a real cat!”.
I’d call that a weirdness - a cat that actually liked riding in a car.
