Why Your Cat Maybe Acting Crazy At Night? by kraftysprouts: 12:23pm On Nov 05, 2018
Has your cat gone hyper? Have you noticed the furry guy acting extra energetic at night, running around and singing a lot of cat songs when you need some peace? This craziness your cat exhibits might have come as a surprise mainly because reading this animal’s body language is no walk in the park as it is in the case of dogs. If this unexpected cat behaviour bothers you, there are a few reasons that might explain the behaviour.

The differences between cat and dog communication behaviours.

People over the years have spent time learning the behaviour of man’s best friend, training it, teaching it, and trying to understand it. This teaching and learning process between man and dogs has been going on pretty well, and we can proudly say dogs are easy to train and it is easy to understand them. When it comes to cats, however, we can’t say the same. It is almost difficult or impossible to find a person who understands basic cat instincts the way even kids understand primary dog expression.

One reason why dogs are easier to figure out is that they have very expressive faces and readable body languages. A tail wag, the different sound they make that reflects their mood, their ability to follow simple commands made by their owners makes them easy to understand.

On the other hand, our feline pets are famous for being vague in expression and somewhat standoffish behaviour. However, there is a gradually growing to believe amongst pet owners that kitties are just as expressive as their canine counterparts, but we just haven’t figured out how to understand their expressions and their methods of communication.

Every meow your cat makes, every tail wave, every purr, every howl, and even blinks for your cat is a way of the animal trying to communicate with you.

For all the pet owners who are making attempts to communicate with their felines, there just might be a lot they will learn in the long run that will help them interact with these furry fellows better. Because cats are very independent creatures, they are often easily misunderstood, but that doesn’t mean you can’t figure out why your cat has suddenly become hyperactive at night.

Cats gone wild

No matter what breed your cat is, every cat has a moment when it gets in the spirit to run across rooms, behave as if they were being chased by an enemy and they needed to escape for dear life, and also meow like they are trying hard to make a good impression at a karaoke night performance. They continue this weird behaviour with so much burst of energy, and then they stop all of a sudden. This sudden wildness in practice is sometimes called the midnight crazies especially when it occurs during the night time. Your pet can decide to jump on your bed or touch you in different ways just to make sure you have as much fun as they are having. The reason why your cat behaves in such an amusing yet annoying way varies.

predatory instinct

All cats are created as predators which means the predatory instinct is very healthy and domestic cats are allowed to exhibit it. When they start to act crazy sometimes, it could be a sign that they are practising hunting characters, escape techniques, and fighting skills.
