Cat curling is the new Winter Olympics sport.

I want to see modified curling with cats! this one seems ready for competition.

Cat curling is just what cats do when they go to sleep (when they don't stretch out or drape themselves over the settee). This is more cat hovercrafting (or that's what the cat tells themself, I'll bet). At any rate, they look very happy.

I love how kitties make up games to play with their humans. Years ago I had a kitten who would run to the top of the stairs and stare at me until I got out the mop and bucket and mopped the kitchen floor. Then he would come racing down and accross the floor til he slid into the cupboards and then he'd skedaddle back up across the wet floor and up the stairs to start over. My job was to re-mop in between runs to ensure maximum slipperiness. I bet he would've loooooved cat curling too.

I see what you do there, Johnny Wallflower. Cat distraction du jour duly noted, and duly appreciated. :-)

How do you figure out that what your cat loves, more than anything else, is being shoved across a floor by a broom?

Sweep. The cat "helps." Hijinx ensue.

This is how I discovered my cat loved ripping bristles out of my nice broom.

Oh, I have to actually do chores? That's the problem.

I'm sure my cat would never, ever leave me alone again if I did this.

Sometimes by accident (I threw a pair of socks on the floor one day and my cat went tearing after them like a bat out of hell and brought them back to me. I tossed them again and low in behold he brought them back to me again. Thus I learned my cat can play fetch) and sometimes because cats are a pushy sort. I bet you that when human was sweeping one day, cat laid in front of the broom. Human pushed cat with broom out of frustration - cat came back (the very next day~) and human discovered cat likes to be pushed by the broom.

youngercatbailard is a big fan of "rollercoaster" rides in an old ikea/laundry bag. And fusses when she has to jump from kitchen island to fridge without a human shoulder to use as step.

Cats that like being vacuumed with the wand attachment are outliers, according to my research.

Y'all are completely misreading this. That's not a cat having fun. That is a cat masterfully thwarting its human's attempts to rid the floor of cat hair by tricking the human into efficiently facilitating the distribution of cat hair.

Well done, cat. Well done.

Another read is that the kitty just wants to rub up against the bristles and, in the charming way of cats, will relentlessly (and with increasing glee instead of the rancor that humans develop when so obviously thwarted) keep trying to do what it wants to do no matter what steps we take to prevent it.

Not a cat, but it made me laugh so hard: Peek-a-boo!
