My cat, for whom I have acquired about four dozen cat toys that are now batted under various pieces of furniture, has found a new favorite toy.
The description of how this works doesn’t really do the full picture justice. If I can somehow get video of him doing this, I’ll do it, because it’s fucking hysterical.
There’s a little springy doorstop thing at the base of my front door that prevents my doorknob from hitting the drywall when I open it too fast. You know the kind I’m talking about.
The cat started out just batting at it. It made a funny “Sproing!” noise when he did that, so he decided to keep doing it. Then he decided it was edible.
There is nothing funnier than watching a cat repeatedly make a doorstop go “SPROOOOOOOOOOING!” right in his face as he watches it wobble back and forth at high speed, utterly mesmerized.
Fortunately, he got bored with it before the sound made me insane, but I was just about falling off the sofa laughing at him last night.
Yes, I am easily amused. Why do you ask?
