Celebrating Cats True Nature

I’m a cat person. I’m totally admitting it! We have 3 adorable cats in our life right now and I’m happy to share with you their natural instincts – their razor-sharp reflexes, remarkable agility, and intense focus.

Cats are crazy balls of energy that are both cuddlers and players all at the same time!

It’s so fun to see them just being cats too! I’m always amazed by their energy and their hunting skills… even if it’s just catching a bug! I can watch them for hours!

This is our newest kitten “Pie” showing her true nature in four different scenarios – leaping, sprinting, stalking and catching!

Cats are known for their funny antics.

I bet your cat has some cool moves too!

  • My cats have very unique personalities. Oreo loves to get in bed with me and has to knead while burying his head and will do this until he falls asleep. Kit Kat gives hugs and will hold on like a toddler when I carry him around.

  • Max thinks he’s a dog. He runs down the stairs to meet me at the door when I come home, and he plays fetch with his little foam ball. I’ll toss it up the stairs and he’ll chase it. Once he catches it, he brings it back to the top of the stairs, sets it down, and then pushes it with his paw so that it bounces back down to me. He’ll do this for a half-hour straight before he loses interest! Charlotte, on the other hand, would rather nap than play. She jumps up on the couch and head-butts my leg until I start petting her. Then she’ll burrow into the sofa pillows and is perfectly content. UNLESS I stop petting her! Then the head-butting begins anew.

  • Your cat is precious! You’re right about their crazy antics. My daughter’s cat was just furiously chasing its tail!

  • We don’t have a cat (allergic) but they are funny to watch. They are crazy little creatures! I hope there is some fun shots taken and shared!

  • God Bless you for loving cats. I personally think ours is the spawn of Satan. He scares the crap out of me, no joke. I’ll be sitting here doing not a darn thing and he’ll bolt over to my feet for across the house, hiss at me and then spray something. I should have bought the kids a turtle 😉

  • I have 5 adorable cats at home. Their favorite thing to do is crawl on me in the middle of the night and knead me. I know they are showing love, but it sure is a painful love :). Cats are the best!!

  • Cats are so much fun! What a great way to share the endearing things they do. And the Go Pro Hero is a great prize! I would love to win!

  • I have 5 cats that I adore. Their favorite thing to do is wake me in the middle of the night by kneading me. At first I think I’m having a nightmare that I’m being attacked, but then I realize it’s my little fur balls giving me love. Cats are the best.

  • Me and my husband were just talking about how we need to get a cat soon. I know nothing about them. My boys are so excited though, it’s all they are talking about.

  • My cat loves to jump on the back of my chair and walk across it–not up or down-across–all while looking at me with a smile on her face!! I need a new chair!!!

  • Pretty cat. We don’t have cats at home. My son is allergic to the fur.

  • To enter: My favorite thing to watch the cats do is jump on the dog, buwahahahhaha
    Thanks for hosting.

  • Awww.. your cat is adorable and naughty too. I dnt have a cat… but looking at these super cute pics, I would love to get one soon 😉

  • Hi Heather, You new little kittie, Pie, is so cute and looks cuddly and fun! And great product – I can’t wait to take a look at the slo-mo vids – and great little giveaway thank you 🙂

  • I love cats but my husband doesn’t care for them. You have a beautiful cat. The only thing that I don’t miss is the litter box. We have three dogs now and I love them too.

  • We got a new kitten back in October that is a total ball of energy! I love her, and she does love to cuddle too! I’m a cat person all the way, maybe its because I’m a Leo.

  • Our male cat, Zippy, loves to flop over on his back and beg for belly rubs! (He also likes a bonus chin rub too!)

  • My cat’s favorite thing to do is chase lizards at dusk. Fortunately, she’s a terrible hunter. Not a single lizard has been harmed, but it would sure be fun to film!

  • We used to have cats before we had kids and they all had their own personalities. One of them would play fetch with us. We would throw milk rings up in the air and he would jump high in the air and catch it in his mouth and bring it back to us to throw again. I miss having a cat. We may have to get one again soon.

  • I don’t have cats but my mom does and I’m sure she would love hearing about this product! The sweeps sounds great too!

  • Cats are certainly interesting creatures. I would have to speak on my aunt’s cat who loves to hide and sneak attack people…but in a good way.

  • I’m not really a cat person but these pics of your cat is adorable! Great giveaway for cat lovers 🙂

  • I think cats are one of the smartest creatures. While I dont have a pet cat, there are several cats in my village and they live in practically all our houses. We need to make sure that our food’s covered all the time and everything should be kept because they’re just so smart & clever and they eat everything!

    This is an awesome giveaway – who doesn’t want a GoPro right?

  • Cats are such wonderful companions and I love them very much! Your little kitten is adorable and looks very playful and happy!

  • My cat’s favorite thing to do is eat. After that, his favorite thing to do is play with a purple stuffed mouse he has. He throws it around, chases it and carries it from one room to another.

  • My cat likes to wake me up in the morning at 7:30 AM. He is relentless. He paws my face and nudges me until I wake up and pay attention to him. A half hour later he falls asleep on the couch, where he happily naps, satisfied that he interrupted my slumber!

  • My kitties favorite thing to do is leaping around and chasing each other playfully. They also love to pounce on stuff, it is really funny. They also love lounge in the outdoor patio cat house we have.

  • My cat loves to chase any type of string or ribbon. He also loves to look out the window from our second floor. He is even with the tree tops there and likes to watch the birds!
