So what turns your placid pet into a frenetic fur ball?
Short answer: Mother Nature.
With the help of a cat behaviorist, "Simon's Cat Logic" explains why cats suddenly dart around the house, on the furniture and even (grrrr) up and down the curtains.
Turns out that felines in the wild can go on 40 hunting trips a day, while domestic cats live such a relatively sedate lifestyle that they need to burn off the excess energy, the video explains.
You can let your adorable feline wreak havoc or you can watch above for what to do about "crazy time."
The curtains you save may be your own.
