When you think about it, ping pong is the perfect sport for cats. The ball is just big enough for cats to easily see but it's not so big that it can be frightening. Playing ping pong requires that the ball be hit back and forth, in rapid succession. This is exactly what cats love to track- something that moves rapidly and seemingly without cause! Now, don't you feel silly for ever questioning the purrfect match that is cats & ping pong?
