Video shows just how hard it is to get a good night's sleep with three cats

This hilarious footage shows three excitable cats whose nightly routine of running around the house like crazy makes bedtime hard for their unsuspecting owner.

Jennifer Bates, 30, originally installed the camera to observe the cats while she was at work, but it is the felines’ night-time antics that show all the action.

Tickle Butt, a 12-year-old calico, Megabreath, a two-year-old domestic longhair and six-year-old tabby Mittens can be seen chasing and playing with each other as Jennifer tries to sleep.

The cats even give Jennifer a surprise by bonking her on the head and jumping on her stomach.

Bar manager Jennifer, from Castlewood, Virginia, USA, said: ‘The videos were honestly not intentional.

‘I installed a pet cam in my apartment about a year ago. I wanted to be able to watch them when I’m away at work. Plus I’ve always wondered what they do when I walk out the door.

‘I just so happened to capture all the crazy moments as well and I figured other cat people out there could relate to the crazy cat madness!

‘Two of my cats always get the “zoomies” at night and randomly jump and run super fast wherever their little paws take them, including — but not limited to — over my face.

‘The videos were taken at random hours throughout the night in my home while I was sleeping or about to go to sleep.’

‘I honestly couldn’t stop laughing.

‘In the moment these videos happened, I was a little frustrated because first, it scared me, secondly, I got a good scratch on my face, and thirdly, I was just trying to relax and sleep.

‘But I found it hilarious when I watched it happen on the videos. Let your cats zoom away!’
