I don't know if your cat is strange. Cat's are all different. We have one that is afraid of the paper shredder and one that attacks our steam cleaner when we use it. Most cats hate water but we have two that will jump in the bath tub with us if we don't lock them out. We got one that won't drink out of a water dish but likes to drink out of the faucet. We have another that likes to lay on hair brushes. Who knows, cat's are all different...no two are alike. But all of ours love junk food.
