Amazing Cat GIF • Pawesome! Cats have a precise method of walking called ‘direct registering’ [ok-cats.com]

“Cats are capable of walking very precisely because, like all felines, they directly register: that is, they place each hind paw (almost) directly in the print of the corresponding fore paws. This also provides sure footing for their hind paws when they navigate rough terrain. Their hind paws fall inside the place of their forepaws, minimizing noise and visible tracks, while ensuring more stable footing.

Confused cat: “OMG, this is the biggest toilet I've ever seen but how do I get out of this damn huge litter box?" ๐Ÿ™€

“The word 'catwalk' makes sense now. Catwalk: applied in 'Haute couture' since CoCo Channel.”

“Cats walk single file to hide their number like sandpeople. You think  there is only one enemy but in reality, they're legion, haha!” ๐Ÿ˜‹

It works with BLACK cats too ๐Ÿ‘Œ

“Funny that you mention their footprints. This is a great example of 'replace' steps of felines, because their back feet replace their front feet while walking. Compared to canines who step to the side of their front feet, making it easier to see all four for tracks. In addition, cats tract their claws so you won't see claw tacks in the ground, but canines will always display claw marks. ”

“Hmmm, It's not footprints it's pawprints.” ๐Ÿพ

“The slow motion makes it incredibly satisfying to watch! Cat's moves are so perfectly harmonic I can't stop watching it. Someone help me.”

“Watched this on a loop for a good 5 minutes.” ๐Ÿ˜„

“Yep, that cat GIF is so relaxing.”

“This is seriously impressive. I'm guessing they do this because if the front paw lands on solid ground they can be sure the rear paw will have good traction too as opposed to placing the rear paw somewhere else and possibly landing in a hole.”

“I'm guessing it's also because of the heat. Once the front paws have stepped into the hot sand on top and pushed it into the colder sand beneath, the back paws can go into the same spots, touching only the cooler sand underneath.”

“As majestic as lions and tigers even when walking stealthily.”

“That seems impawsible! No wonder the Egyptians revered cats as GODs, this was probably one of the signs of divinity!” ๐Ÿ˜ป

“Cats are one of the few four-legged animals that walk with a 'left, left, right, right' pattern.”

“That is hypnotic. Damn hypnotic is what it is!” ๐Ÿ‘€

“When did we send a cat to Mars?” ๐Ÿ˜‚

“So elegant white kitty!” ๐Ÿ‘Œ
