hmmm... thats a tough one... i don't htink so though. I mean, they are just playing, right? My cats do this too, and they are fine.

Nothing sharp around though, is there? Like sharp corners or edges?

yeah, they're playing and chasing all over but they go under the side table where they barely fit with high speed and their backs grind on the bottom of the tables, if i was the one doing that i would have a scraped back, are they physically tough?

If they are just playing, then they wouldn't do something over and over that hurts them (opposed to if they were being chased by a predator). Cats are smart. If something hurts them, they're not going to keep doing it. My boys do this all the time--diving under dressers, in between the couch and the wall where you wouldn't think they'd fit!!--but they are fine. Sometimes it may SOUND like they are scraping, but their fur helps protect them.

Unless you start seeing signs of a wound, I'd say No Worries!

Ditto on the no worries. HAHAHA, though, on hearing about the rambunctious bengals! Looking forward to hearing more antics. You do want to look around and cat-proof the place to prevent any accidents. Cover sharp corners with corner guards.

Sometimes when my cats are playing, they thud or whump so loud I get worried about injuries, but they seem just fine. My heart still stops for a sec when I see one of them sailing thru the air when they're doing a mad dash around the place.
