Cat drums window

My younger cat (9 years old) will stand on his back feet at the edge of the bed and drum the window with his front paws. It doesn't matter if the shade is up or down. He usually does this between 4 and 5 AM so it's a little annoying but I'm just wondering if anybody else has a cat that does this and what does it mean.

Maisie does that when another cat comes into the yard and he wants to chase it away.

It usually works.

My Littleman does this to closed doors. Mostly just so I'll get up and open it for him and then he'll walk away like, "did I ask you to do that?". I refer to it as, there's Littleman again trying to dig his way to China!

I have a big glass door in the kitchen, and one cat who likes to go out on a harness and one doesn't. When the little girl thinks her boy has been out long enough, she'll come stand at the door and drum it, and often he'll come stand on the outside and do the same, it's very cute.

They also both do it when someone cruelly shuts them out of the bathroom for the sake of privacy. Less cute, but pretty funny when I forget to warn visitors

The late and gorgeous Trixie used to do it on our living room window with her back leg! One of the menay things I miss about her.

Cat drums window

Godzilla has recently starting to do this on our bedroom window. Usually when the other resident big orange cat comes into the yard he goes nuts... I don't know what his deal is. He lets my kitten beat him up but he's hugely territorial with a cat outside.

You know, it's strange, but Zephyr and Maisie are the same way. They are totally fine with any animal that's in the house... but having another animal in the yard drives them nuts. They don't even go out there! Makes no sense.

My boy will do this even when the shade is down and he can't see outside so I know it is not due to a cat in the yard. He will also dig on the bed and sometimes the rug so I think it is just one of his quirks.

Well see he has surprised me recently. When we went home for christmas this year I kept Godzilla and Skeeter in my room to keep them away from my moms 3 cats. I let them out to roam periodically but I always locked the two younger cats of my moms up because I knew they would cause a problem but I left the oldest one out whos like 14 and pretty mellow. Well nothing happened not even a spat until this older cat went wandering into my room snooping where my two had been staying primarily the past few days. Godzilla saw her headed that direction and followed her... As soon as she was in there snooping he jumped on her. No warning at all. Ive never ever seen him have that reaction with any animal. Not our previous dog, not skeeter, not even our previous cat. I picked up the older cat as soon as I had the chance to get her away from him and he was jumping from the floor on me still trying to get her. I half way feel like he is protective of Skeeter or something Im not sure. It doesnt make sense though because he lets Skeeter be totally dominant. He lets Skeeter eat his food he lets him beat up on him even though hes fully capable of throwing Skeeter for a loop but he just doesnt... But if its another cat getting in his space and Skeeters holy shenanigans watch out haha Is it possible for an older male cat to be protective of another one?? Godzilla grooms him just like hes his mom... Its kind of pathetic actually

Even with the shade pulled he would still be able to hear and smell other animals outside.

Unlike humans, cats aren't so reliant on sight to know what's going on outdoors.
