Simon’s Cat in Crazy Time

(YouTube link)

One of the side effects of a cat’s lifestyle of sleeping 20 hours a day is that all the normal energy produced by expensive, nutritionally-balanced cat food builds up. In humans, this buildup is called “middle-age spread.” In cats, it reaches the bursting point eventually. That is most likely to happen at 3 AM, when humans are awakened by crashing, falling, and piano-playing sounds. In this animation from Simon Tofield, Simon’s Cat demonstrates such an event during the day so we can see it better. The episode plays itself out in frantic rushing from one place to another as the cat tries to figure out what it really wants to do. Having made no concrete decision, with the expelled energy dissipated, the cat then returns to normal equilibrium. -via Tastefully Offensive

When my cats get like this, they LOVE to skitter and scramble across my linoleum floors; practically running in place at times while trying to dig their claws in.
