Do your cats gallop around like horses?

My 2 cats gallop around like horses chasing each other back and forth, it's like they are playing tag. It's the FUNNIEST thing. It's so loud though, it sounds like horses galloping through the house.

I've never seen this before with other cats because my family's cats were old and they never ran around, they were always lazy.

Mine do, often. According to my downstairs neighbors it sounds more like elephants than horses. I can only be grateful they are incredibly patient and nice people.

My two do run very fast around the house. One usually is chasing the other and not sure she likes it. She will run around herself at times. It is very loud!

It's so funny, it doesn't look like normal running, it's literally galloping. I laugh every time I see it.

OMG!! ROFL!! Yes! Mine get the evening Zoomies when I get home from work and they definitely sound like a stampede with all of their antics!
Also compared to the NASCAR races!!:p

our other cats would race around like ponys,, yeti is more along the lines of a clydesdale..

The video is just too funny, I play and replay. ET doesn't do that but when he is startled, he hopped over 1ft high like a rabbit.
