The reason behind a cat’s obsession with a hamster became clear recently. This particular cat wanted to know — nay, share — the joy the hamster felt over running on the wheel in the cage, a video posted by Japanese Twitter user @pyonpyon_chang last month leads us to believe.
After watching the frantic, furry critter with deep focus, the cat began using the washing machine as a hamster wheel.
With a little reverse engineering, the cat totally grasps the concept of running on a wheel and… well, runs with it. Of course, you should never, ever, ever, ever put your cat in a washing machine for any reason; in fact, you should make it so your cat can’t get trapped in a washing machine. This cat simply had a life’s dream to live out.
Why should hamsters have all the fun, anyway?
