Well, I guess you could call it the zoomies. Or Gracie’s version of the zoomies.
She flipped and she flopped and frantically ran up the back of the couch and back down again.
One minute she was perfectly calm, and then that changed right before my eyes.
Gracie & A Case Of The Kitten Zoomies:
Something got her going and she just couldn’t seem to stop herself, or so it seemed to me anyway. What a burst of energy!
It was very intense and didn’t last that long, but long enough to make me laugh out loud. And Ivy watched her too.
She’d get to the top of the couch and then turn around and race back down again in a sort of frenzy.
See that look in her eye? She looked like a kitten possessed. Like the devil was chasing her.
Up & Down The Couch She Ran:
And then she’d start all over again. It was like someone or something had spooked her. Or she had a sudden jolt of energy. I guess that’s called kitten energy.
You had described the “zoomies” to me in relation to your own kitties. So I kind of knew what to look for.
I Googled the cat zoomies, and here is what I found written about it in one online article.
Oh my, the things cats will do that surprise you.
I was just sitting here working on my computer and suddenly it was like the electricity sparked or something. I stopped what I was doing and watched this little bit of amusement play itself out.
Sometimes Ivy just lays and watches Gracie, as though she is confounded by what Gracie is doing.
Those two like the same swirly toys. So there’s often a race to see who can get to it first. Gracie is pretty darned fast.
I bought all those cat toys and Gracie ignores them. I should have saved my money. Because she loves those swirly toys just as much as her big sister, Ivy.
One of the cheapest cat toys you could probably buy, and those are the toys they gravitate to.
