So many toys, so little energy.

More cute cat photos just because I can.

As we’ve previously established Lord Dudley Mountcatten has a surplus of toys, most of which he doesn’t play with. But he does have a few favorites he flings around the living room.

.

.

He runs up and down the halls, through the kitchen, around the den, bouncing out of the office and back across the furniture in a burst of frenzied energy…

.

.

Until he runs out of steam.

I feel you Dudley.

I really do.

.

We call it ripping.

.

Or rippin’ for short.

I’ve heard people call it the zoomies, but I can’t quite wrap my tongue around that.

Whatever the nomenclature, it’s when your pet goes spastic and starts tearing around the house like a whirling dervish. For Lord Dudley Mountcatten it happens every evening around 7:00. He starts to twitch, gets a wild look in his eye and he’s off. Sprinting across the living room, down the hall, bouncing off a wall to the second hall, up and over the bed, across the top of a chair, back down the halls, through the kitchen, ending under the dining room table with a toy.

Last night it was the blue feathered whale and as you can see, he was having a grand old time.

.

.

Wish I was that limber.

.

.

I’m not sure why he has a fascination with furniture legs…

.

.

But when he’s in rippin’ mode he always wraps around them to play.

.

Cats.

They be crazy.
