Fluffy’s Favorite Sports

Is your cat sleeping right now? There’s a good chance that she is. Although Fluffy is quite drowsy, she isn’t a complete couch potato. In fact, our feline pals are very active and athletic when they are actually awake, especially while they are young. Read on as a local Wake Forest, NC vet lists Fluffy’s favorite sports.


Parkour is a type of training that includes running, jumping, somersaulting, and other activities. It’s become very popular among daredevils, who sometimes practice it on skyscrapers. (Note: we do not recommend this!) Fluffy may not somersault from roof to roof, but she may hop from your desk to your sofa, or jump from a table to a bookcase.


Soccer is also pretty high on the list of Fluffy’s favorite sports. Kitties love batting small objects around! Your frisky pet may have a blast playing with a bottle cap, small ball, or even a crumpled up piece of paper.


If you are wondering what the difference between kitty hockey and kitty soccer is, it’s quite simple. Cat hockey is played on floors, and, occasionally, in bathtubs. Soccer, however, takes place in carpeted areas. In both games, the object is to make a ‘goal,’ or, in human terms, push the toy under a stove, sofa, or another piece of furniture.


Kitties are very flexible, and can even twist and bend in mid-air. Those tricky run-jump-pounce combinations take our feline buddies years of practice to master!


Cats can run pretty quickly when they want to. Have you ever wondered why your kitty suddenly raced out of a room at full speed? Chances are, your furry little sprinter was just trying to beat her previous record.

Long Jump

One of Fluffy’s cutest play tactics is when she does that pre-pounce butt wiggle. Cats often do this when they are preparing for a big jump!

Rock Climbing

While a few of our feline friends can literally climb walls, Fluffy usually sticks to climbing cat towers. If your pet is allowed outside, she may also try her ‘paw’ at climbing trees. This is great activity for your furry buddy! (Note: we recommend keeping cats indoors. Your pet will be safer and healthier staying inside.)
