03 Jun Why do cats roll around before attacking?
Posted at 11: 59h
Do you know when your cat is there calmly and suddenly starts to give that basic hitchhike and then jumps on you, your other cat, an insect, your foot under the blankets or in the same vacuum (some invisible predator)?
It came out on Live Science that a scientist who studies animal locomotion has proposed some answers to that.
Cats roll around for reasons of…
According to John Hutchinson, a professor of evolutionary biomechanics at Royal Veterinary College, London, “the most direct answer is that science doesn’t know; the hunch of cats’ buttocks has not yet been studied ”.
He, however, believes that cats roll their buzanfa to gain momentum, to add a certain amount of friction in their paws to be able to make a jump at the time of the attack. Another possible reason for the rebolêixion would be to sharpen the senses before the boat, that is, to prepare the vision, the perception of what is around, the muscular structure of the cats to then be successful in the attack.
It can also serve as a stretch before exercise, you know when we warm up our muscles to prepare for a training session?
And it’s not just our little meles that do that. The big, wild cats do the same thing before attacking – but the prey generally don’t come out intact as we do after our kittens’ jumps.
In the end, this Hutchinson doesn’t know anything. I, with all my study of homemade observation by Pingo and Buneco, I think they give this little shake just to kill cute people, as, by the way, almost everything they do. Right?
