Does your cat get the “zoomies?” You know, that thing when she runs around the house like crazy jumping on furniture, running up and down the stairs, and all over the house? At our house, Ruby is the Queen of the Zoomies. Several times a day, she races through the house, up and down the cat tree, and up and along the back of the sofa. Her zoomies loop seems to be almost exactly the same every day. Our resident cat behaviorist Mikel Delgado explained this behavior to Inverse Science.
If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Monday, we told you about a new tool to reduce the stress of vet visits for your cat, on Tuesday, we talked about how a raw diet can benefit your cat’s health, on Wednesday, we shared this year’s 5 most popular health posts, on Thursday, we shared this year’s 5 most popular lifestyle posts, and on Friday, we announced our picks for this year’s top 10 cat books.
Today’s video is the opposite of the zoomies: how adorable are these little babies? I love the tortie bookends![fb_pe url=”https://www.facebook.com/consciouscat/posts/10155391044261936/” width=”550″/]
