The feel of a brand-new, plush carpet underneath your bare feet is truly one of the simple pleasures in life. That soft, fresh feeling is enough to make anyone feel at once cozy and revitalized. It's a rare treat that fades too quickly, which is perhaps why it is such a special feeling. But it's not just something we humans enjoy for its novelty. As you will come to see, it is something that our furry friends are similarly affected by — although with often different results.
Our friends of the feline persuasion seem to also recognize “the new carpet” for the novelty it is, but their reaction is far from typical of how we humans are accustomed to responding (let's hope). Take, for example, this latest internet darling.
This cat has truly lost its mind over this strange new, spongy, soft surface. It has literally lost control of its limbs and, in the end, must flee the scene out of sheer panic/excitement. The thrill is too much.
And this frantic fur ball is not alone. Just look at these other carpet-crazed cats that have lost their wits over something so mundane as an area rug. It's truly fascinating.
This white cat has a unique approach to enjoying carpeting by climbing horizontally along it to soak up all that nice new carpet smell.
This gray fur ball can't get enough of the luxurious floor covering. It matters not if it's an area rug or wall-to-wall carpet, this little guy loves it all.
This feisty feline can't get enough of this magic carpet ride.
If you enjoyed these cats geeking out over new carpet, you must share their hysteria with your friends and fellow cat lovers. They're sure to enjoy these carpet-crazy cat antics.
