Annoying cat games...

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I really don't know what goes through Radar's head, but it is not what Terry Pratchett suggested goes on in the heads of most cats (vague thoughts about fish and radiators... in his book The Unadulterated Cat)

Today he is playing 'hunting wildebeest in the Serengeti' - he is the cheetah, and guess who plays the part of the wildebeest? - yes it's me.

Every time I get up to walk to the kitchen, the brave 'cheetah' tries to fell me by leaping out of hiding and wrapping around my lower leg and then I have to do a 'comedy shuffle' along the corridor with a cat clamped onto my leg, his little legs wrapped right around my calf, his tail swishing madly on the floor behind me.

I only wish I had a video camera! It's hilarious but also it's really starting to wear a little thin now I love that cat, he's completely bonkers

Aw, that sounds like a fun game!!


Trout likes to play that too..she enjoys stalking foam balls (I mean gazelles) while hiding under a rug (I mean bushes) with just whiskers sticking out

Mollie likes to track and attack pythons in the grass - actually she sits on my bed and jumps on my legs or feet should I dare to move them. Ouch! Even with sheets and blankets her little nails connect!

That reminds me of something Kiko use to do that always had me screaming laughing. When he was a baby he use to get into my artificial greenery stems and walk around low down to the ground with it on top of his head. Peeking around the leaves. It was sooooo funny to see this green bush walking across the floor

Well I love it when they play those games. Phantom often hides behind a tiny piece or string or bag (logs and bushes) and pounces on her sister (wild boar). Its funny for me to watch bt it annoys Phenom for some reason!

Talin likes to pretend he's a cheeta, Sláine seems to perfer to pretend she's teh gazelle (us chase her) - Bobby likes that version too, but thankfully, only about twice a day - Sláine can keep it up FOR HOURS.

Molly and Slayer mostly just want petting, but can be tempted into a game of bed mice - Molly is scary dangerous.

Ginger and Ferris take turns stalking each other from behind trees in the jungle. (I have lots and lots of plants at home.)

I love watching one stalk another, especially when one isn't expecting it and jumps straight into the air in surprise when pounced upon!

Maybe if you got Radar a little playmate, you wouldn't become the prey so often? Just a thought...

Indeed, Radar's little step-brother is joining us on Sunday, if things go according to plan

I'm pretty sure Radar is gonna make his new lil brother a "problem child" very quickly!

Lily is lazy...she just likes to sit on the back of the couch & whenever you walk past, she grabs you with her claws. She's too much of a bum to get up & chase you. If you want to hold her, though, she can move like a cheetah!
