    Lasts about 5-10 minutes after the poopie has been deposited in litter box. All my cats seem to do this to some degree and it's funny as hell... seeing them zoom around the house, up and down the stairs at 100mph!
    :flail: :lol: :lol2:

    Mingo does that, too, but he does it before he poops. Once he does, he calms down.

    As far back as I can remember all our cats got the zoomies after making a deposit in the litter box. But our last cat, Neely, not only ran down the stairs at record speed but made Exorcist sounds as well. :lol:

    Ruby does that too. And you better not be in her way, or she'll run you over on her dash to her scratching post. :biggrin:

    :lol:. Yes, I think pretty much every cat I've met does the P P zoomie. It's so funny. Or at least it would be if Mouse's didn't start with his championship leap from his tray... :headshake: :sigh: :frown:. Half the litter tracked across the room no matter what tray or litter has been used.
    The zoomies used to last a good 15 to 30 minutes but now it's more like 5. Still hilarious though.
    I wonder if stray / feral / wild cats show the same behaviour? Any one here got experience to answer?

    My Bourbon does the zoomies before or after pooping, does the zoomies when I am cleaning the house and moving furniture, does the zoomies when I get home with a lot of groceries on plastic bags! She loves plastic bags!

    Tell me about it! About 6 months ago Patches ran over my bare foot during one of her zoomie episodes and tore a nice gash on the top of my foot - ouch! I think I still have a scar from it

    RB Kitty Cindy used to do this, it was so cute. She'd come tearing down the stairs and slide on the hardwood floor into the bathroom.

    Non of the other cats do or did it.

    Count does this too. Unfortunately he also has diarrhea often so... Yeah I wish he didn't run after pooping.

    Beau did this every single time. I imagine he always felt lighter :lol:

    Charlie and Selene will both do it on occasion.

    Ouch, I feel your Pain! My kitten, Salem did the exact same thing to me during a zoomie attack. She ran right over the top of my foot and cut me with her back claws. It left a nasty scar. I am now way more aware of where my feet are when Salem is tearing around the apartment like her tail is on fire.
