Do you ever experience that your kitties goes wild in a day? I have just now my cat won't stop running and squirming around. He is like posses or something. How should you handle this? He goes to the table then to the cabinets, then to the sealing and etc. He eats fine and has bathe already. Any advice?

Up until two years ago I have always had cats and they used to go crazy just before the snow started. They were more reliable than the weatherman! They seemed to sense that it was arriving and would do things like you describe a few hours before the snowstorm hit our area. Once it started snowing they would curl up in the warmth but for a few hours before they seemed like someone had wound up their battery and would run, hide, leap and jump all over the place!

So you might say you are saying that storm is coming? I should prepare now! lol Animals do have their natural instincts in things. I should talk to my cat ask what do you sense? haha

Come back and let us know if the predictions by your cat coincide with a change in the weather - though I doubt you get snow where you are right?

No. There is no snow here. Only heavy rains and thunderstorms.

Theres nothing wrong with your cat. Is it a male? If so he might be bored staying stationary. Cats always make up a great show. One time I saw two cats doing boxing and the dark one punched the white at the head with its paw while the white cannot punch back. They're so funny.

Yes he is a male cat. He has been acting strange lately. He doesn't harm his brother though. Does your cat do this too? Now he is jumping on the dishes! Bad Cat!

I think this is very normal behavior. All of the cats I have had have behaved that way at times. Before cats were domesticated they had to hunt down their food or run away from predators which would require quick bursts of energy. These kinds of impulses are still sort of hardwired in our modern cats and so sometimes they will have an abundance of energy that they need to expel. Hence they will run and jump around like crazy wild cats. However if this kind of behavior lasts over many days non stop there might be a problem. Otherwise it's just kitties gone wild for a spell.

Is your cat neutered? He may be getting a little crazy because he wants to mate. If he isn't, you should really consider it. I am also a little concerned that you say he had his bath already. Do you really give your cat baths? Cats are very capable of keeping themselves clean and should only be bathed if they get incredibly dirty. One of my cats is currently sitting in my lap and purring away. Good luck with your cat situation.

We call it "the crazies", but basically it just means that your cat is feeling playful. Get him some toys or play with him with a string or something.

Don't worry! I have cats and they do the same thing. Willy and Khuay do that same thing first thing in the morning. They are getting exercise. It's a kitty way of doing the Iron Man. LOL! My guys will race through the house, land on the bed, leap from the bed to the cupboard under the window, jump down on the floor, race through the house, jump on the sewing machine cabinet and from there to the television in the work room and from the television to the top of the refrigerator back down to the television to the sewing cabinet to the floor and off at a full run. On occasion I have come out of the bathroom during one of their Iron Cat episodes and scared the daylights out of them and they will jump sky high! LOL!!! Their running like a wild cat isn't anything to worry about, it is their way of getting exercise and keeping themselves healthy and regular (they poop much easier and better after a bunch of exercise). It is so much fun to watch, and as long as they aren't getting hurt or damaging anything, just kick back and watch the show.

I don't think your cat is "wild". Most cats will have moments where they get real hyper and want to run around a lot. Even my older cat Precious acts this way at times. He'll get feeling real good and run around and want to play. Its perfectly normal, and i don't think there is anything wrong. As long as they are eating and drinking, everything's fine.
