Gang neighborhood cats go crazy and bounce and hunt around on a garden trampoline
- Brandon Hall home owner was surprised to see the five cats in his back yard
- The cats race around the trampoline in Ontario, in Richland County, Ohio
- Mr. Hall's son, Bailey, said his father unpacked them a few seconds later to walk them
A homeowner was shocked by a bizarre scene in his back yard – a group of cats running around and jumping on his trampoline.
The film shows five of the cats on the Brandon Hall estate in Ontario, a city in Richland County, Ohio, as they run across the fallen leaves and swing to the netted walls.
They chase each other and run wildly back and forth, one of them climbing up halfway through the loopholes.
Meanwhile, Mr. Hall is standing on the stairs at the entrance of the trampoline and watching them while he says: & # 39; Well, go down, go down … you're gone, you're gone. & # 39;
Brandon Hall looks on in amazement as the five cats roam on his trampoline in the backyard in Ontario, in Richland County, Ohio.
As they bounce off the net and chase each other, it is not clear whether they play or panic
However, it is difficult to say whether the cats are really having fun or are terrified of the playground.
Mr. Hall's son, Bailey, said: “After returning home from a baseball game, my parents noticed some neighborhood cats playing on our trampoline.
& # 39; The cats roam the neighborhood every day and we don't know for sure if they are pets, but they seemed to enjoy it.
& # 39; My father can be seen to calm the cats before releasing them. & # 39;
The video has had more than 7 million views on Twitter – some commentators say it is cruel to see the animals suffering in the confined space.
Moments after the video is made, Mr. Hall unzips the entrance to the playground to release the animals
Bailey responded on the social media site: & # 39; For anyone who thinks we did this on purpose or tortured the cats, we came home here. They climbed over the mesh.
& # 39; Five seconds after this video was made, my father unzipped the trampoline so they could get out. You can relax. & # 39;
When it comes to jumping, cats have little need for a trampoline.
A healthy home can jump about 8ft high – a distance of about six times their height.
Any cat playing on a trampoline can make it an unsafe environment for others to play on.
The claws and teeth of the animal can cause the material to weaken – be it the jumping mat or the mesh.
Most trampoline damage occurs in the home environment and more than 90 percent are contracted by children, usually between 5 and 14 years old, according to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons.
