Holden may be insane.

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
He recently started doing "power laps" around the apartment. He just takes off like a rocket and runs this "course" around the place. He runs from the bathroom hallway, into my bedroom, over the bed, across the computer desk, into the living room, behind the TV, over the end table, across the back of the couch, into the kitchen (where he slides across the floor while trying to turn), over his food dish and back into the bathroom hallway where he takes a second to breathe and does it again! Sometimes he is kind of "yelling" when he does it. Making this weird not-quite-meowing noise. It almost sounds like he is saying, "brooowwww rrrooowwwww" almost growling. It is pretty cute and totally knocks him out..lol

we had a cat once, and I was cleaning some engine bits with petrol in the garage. She came up and started drinking it and whent loopy, ran around the garage three times, up the walls and across the shelves and just came back down and laid there in the middle of the garage floor motionless.

Holden sounds like a typical kitty to me. Aristotle does the same thing. You hear a chirrup and then he takes off.

Insane?!?!?

Imagine 6 cats doing this at the same time and the noise they can generate. Holden sounds pretty sane to me!! It is you that he is trying to make insane!

This is what we call the "zoomies" in my house. They just have to release that energy sometimes and then in Zoe's case she usually settles right down pretty quickly afterwards. We get a big kick out of her antics though...
I can only imagine lots of kitties doing it together, Momofmany....duck for cover!!

We call it the "Cat Crazies" in our house and all three do it.
Elliott is the worst by far though...he's 17 pounds and when he decides to go "crazy" upstairs it sounds like he's going to come right through the ceiling!

It's much louder with hard wood floors. Our last house was all wood floors and it sometimes sounded like thunder in the house. But it's still pretty darn loud on carpet!

Sounds normal to me! But it never gets old, it always amuses me. My cat likes to talk anyway, rarely shuts up.

Sometimes he will incorporate the chair I am sitting in into his race track. Then I get a nice set of kitty claw marks on my shoulders.

always a nice touch

When my kitties get going it sounds like a herd of elephants and anyone not joining in is bound to get bowled over me included!!

haha, I call that a "kitty stampede" at my house and it is definately a nightly occurance. My house is a big square too so they have the perfect ready made race track. I guess I am lucky in that regard, their circle is all layed out for them so normally I don't get bowled over if I am sitting down, if I happen to be standing up when the stampeding starts though, I am definately going to end up getting run over!

My Old English Sheepdogs do this. We call it the Sheepie 500. And you'd better not be in their way.

Except in my case you would add 7 more cats to that.

Running around like a bunch of wild banshees is SOP in my household - in which the activity usually occurs after they've had their breakfast. It's especially funny to watch when Winchester joins in, b/c he's so big. Or when the wooden kitchen floor has been freshly waxed, and they lose their footing and go sliding across it like they are on a skating rink..

A most appropriate choice of musical score! It's called "skitties" here. We have a ready made track, too, through livingroom, dining room, back hall (bounce off wall), front hall, down seven stairs in two bounds, quick 180 and a third bound onto the railing with a "I'm cute" face for the admiring humans in the stands. Usually only one cat at a time -- they seem to have different ideas as to when is the right time, for which I'm grateful!
