So, apparently cats do this thing called the zoomies. I found this out from a friend whose brother owns a cat, and apparently it’s very normal behavior, but at the time I thought it was completely crazy. I had no idea how to handle or understand what was going on with Jace, but he seemed to have seen a ghost out of nowhere and hadn’t a clue what to do.
The zoomies are a phenomenon with an actually scientific name for them, but I like to call them the zoomies because it sounds funnier that way and it also more accurately describes what the cat is actually doing. It’s zooming around relentlessly like it owns the place, and it’s all over all the time. It just rampages around, zooming from place to place, up on the window sill one second and then over by the bathroom the next. When my friend Dan came over, we thought the cat maybe just didn’t like Dan. Turns out what the cat does is totally normal, which is nice to know if anything because I was worried he would always be like this when Dan is around.
Thankfully, this was the first time I’d seen him do the zoomies. For the first two days I owned this crazy cat, he was totally normal and seemed to be adjusting well. All of a sudden, though, he starts acting out of whack and I think maybe I’m the one who’s doing something wrong, like maybe I didn’t feed him the right food or maybe he wants attention that I’m not adequately giving him.
Jace has been adapting to the new environment well though, and I’m glad to say that I don’t have to worry much about this boy when I’m gone, even though I tend to do that anyway. I’m a worry wart.
