Silly kittah jumping thing. Does your cat do this?

One of the funniest things my cat does is when he gets in one of his "moods" where he gets crazy and hiper, he'll run by the pole in the basement or when he runs through a door, he'll stop and jump up on it and slide down it while looking straight up. It's like he stops and tags the doorjam, it's so funny. Has anyone ever heard of this? He does it when I stand over him on the other side of the pole too, almost like he's attacking me.

Another thing he does is stare at the ceiling and meow at it.

Re: Silly kittah jumping thing. Does your cat do this?

Yup! Several of my kitties were door-jamb-jumpers. Marmy(1996-200 also would jump up the wall or door, but he never used his claws as he slid down. Toby(1995-2007) would use his claws, and he only jumped in doorways or protruding wall ends. His favorite place to wall-jump was in the master bathroom, and when I'd see him sitting at the base of the wall, staring up...I'd go lift him up as high as I could and he'd use his paws to 'hug/hold onto the wall and think he was "all that" for having reached so high! I have claw marks on that wall from one of his hi-jumps and I didn't spackle them over when I re-painted, I left them there to remind me of him.
Currently, LuckyDuck will ambush me around corners and doorways. He doesn't jump up the walls or jambs, but he does hook his paw around the edge to help him do a sliding sort of "Kramer" entrance to startle me.

They sure are silly, aren't they? =^..^=

Elfie always gets a new sense of friskiness and goofiness when you ask him to play while he's outdoors. He'll run to a tree and wrap his paws around them, shuffling them up and down, and sometimes doing the jump and slide. It's so cute!
