My little feline man Ray is starting to act a little wonky......he gets these crazy burst of energy where he thinks he is this big jungle cat and treats my furniture and apartment as such...running from one end over my bed, down the hall, jumping over the couch, over the counter, to the sliding door where he crouches and attacks the floor mat...then he does this in reverse back to my room, where he attacks me!
Nothing with teeth and claws, as soon as I yelp he jumps and runs the gamet again to the sliding door...repeat as needed
It doesn't have a exact time he does this, he does it morning, noon and night.....but he's 15lbs of flying fur and has taken my legs out before!
I have bought him these amazing fancy toys to try and entertain him, which he sniffs flicks his tail and ignores...I tried giving him a stuffed animal which he promptly humped and peed on!! and yes he has been neutred since before I adopted him.
He has lived with me for about a year, and only started this in the past 2mths. He's about 3yrs old (vet assumes)
I am thinking he needs a playmate.....but any animal that has ever come into my apartment he has promptly stalked and attacked (this goes for cat, dog, puppy) and I am afraid he might start peeing on everything for territory...which is a big nono!
if you havent fallen off a horse….then you havent been ridin long enough
Yep, it's normal. Even my older cats do that, particularly the barn cats. They take off from house or bard, tails all kinked, running madly and taking swipes at each other. The old housecat does the furniture run, up and down everything, so your guy's behaviour is normal

I have three cats but only one that does that. After racing back and forth for a while, he jumps in the bathtub and scratches to try to get the water faucet to come on (don't ask me why he thinks that will work - it's not like I turn it on for him sometimes when he does that ). By the way, they have two constantly running cat fountains. He'll also head down the hall in front of me, just like my Aussie's, and then stop and trip me if he's not sure I'm following. The other two cats and the two dogs just ignore him. It's particularly amusing when I'm trying to sleep in the morning (which is his favorite time to do it). Oh, and he's 12 1/2 so you might just have to get used to it.

What about some interactive toys? My cats LOVE when I use the wand with whatever (doesn't really matter) on the end. In fact, I have one that will drag it over to where I am and then meow at me until I play! Yes, I'm very well trained.
