If you thought that you had a crazy cat, this one may put yours to shame.
Cats do crazy things all the time. They chase (and eat) flies, they race around the house at 2 a.m., and they'll randomly chase their tails or bite our ankles. In short, cats can be nuts, but a lot of this behavior can be explained by a cat's natural instincts.
In nature, cats would get more exercise and would hunt more than they do living with humans, so it's understandable that this crazy cat behavior is actually just an outlet for a cat's instincts.
That is, until you look at this crazy cat. Excess energy, yes; but this cat's behavior is definitely unusual. He enjoys pulling himself around on his back so that he can slide under the kitchen chairs.
He's clearly having a good time, but he makes quite a spectacle. Take a look for yourself.
If your cat acts crazy at 2 a.m. and wakes you up by running around the house, there are a number of things that you can do to solve the problem. First, start by giving your cat a way to get rid of his excess energy during the day.
Schedule regular playtime sessions and get your cat good and tired. Make sure that you also give your cat a long playtime session just before bedtime. This can help alter your cat's sleep schedule so that he sleeps through the night.
If you can't successfully alter your cat's schedule, then provide him with some toys in a room which is located far from your bedroom. Feed your cat just before you go to bed, and then feed him again when you wake up. A full belly encourages your cat to go to sleep, and can help to keep him from being so active.
Just remember, most crazy cat behavior is due to your cat having excess energy. Finding a way to keep him active can help to reduce his craziness.
