Cat Shocks Mom By Learning To Climb On The Ceiling Like A Spider

“I call it the climbing zoomies" 😺🕷

Peewee was rescued when she was just 3 weeks old, and quickly grew into the most playful, energetic cat. Now she loves spending time with her mom, playing around the house, and of course, finding new things to climb whenever she can. 

“Her personality is crazy,” Katie Shrume, Peewee’s mom, told The Dodo. “She’s really active. She loves cuddles and loves to groom me.”

One day, Peewee decided she needed a new challenge, so she climbed up to the top of the fridge …

… and from there, hopped up onto the ceiling.

Her mom was shocked when she saw her little cat climbing her way along the ceiling, and soon realized that it wasn’t going to be just a one-time thing, but rather Peewee’s new favorite pastime. 

“She’s only gotten halfway,” Shrume said. “She can turn around up there too.”

Now, Peewee loves to climb along the ceiling whenever she can, and apparently thinks she’s Spiderman. 

“She does it probably about once a week,” Shrume said. “I call it the climbing zoomies.”

Even though her climbing makes her mom a little nervous sometimes, Peewee is an expert climber and has never fallen — but luckily the fridge is nearby just in case she needs a landing pad. 

Peewee has always had a lot of energy, and apparently the best way for her to get it all out is to pretend to be a spider and climb along the ceiling. Hey, to each their own!
