Cat Butt Wiggle Is Primarily Mental Preparation for a Pounce — 18 Comments

  1. yea its cute its like im coming to get you. Jasmin does that alot with still being young at i think 3-4 months old.

      • Yea i forgot what it was like to have a kitty in full active mode. She climbs up my legs those claws and teeth are very sharp. i dont mind though. its all part of the fun of being a kitty. I can see shes already made her name amongst the other cats has won them over too. None of them are unhappy anymore. Sumtimes tiger but they all get along now.

  2. LOL!
    I haven’t thought much about this in years.
    We always called it the “shimmy shake”.
    Most cats I’ve been with had/have it.
    It was carried over into my personal life too.
    When I felt a little “frisky” in a relationship, I did the “shimmy shake”.

    • lol – the ‘wind up’ – is kind of exactly what it is. I picture twisting a little key in the side of the cat and then letting go as it shoots accross the floor.

      But it is a sort of wind up – a get ready – a get my footing.

      Does Marvin pre-pounce bum wiggle? For some reason I can’t picture him doing it but that’s probably because all I have seen of him has been very laid back and relaxed – except of course in the action movie with the rug 🙂

  3. lol both our boyz do this before they pounce, I love it! It’s as if they are excited and winding up ready for action, yes just like tennis players bouncing the ball, or golfers waggling their club, a very apt description.
