Dogs chase cats. Cats chase string. Babies chase ... cats? For the under-1-year-old set, the ultimate form of entertainment just might be a simple swishy tail. That's certainly the case for baby Calvin, who was caught on camera, trying desperately to catch his kitty Teedie.
Armed with a smile and a killer outfit, Calvin playfully swats at Teedie's tail (in a very cat-like manner) as it ticks from side to side.
Naturally, the cat isn't impressed by Calvin's big eyes and chubby little hand. As everyone knows, felines are especially good at ignoring uninvited affection.
When you're born all cute and furry though, you have to be prepared for attention. And, if you don't reciprocate, it's important to remember your fans will move on. In this case, baby Calvin gives the chase everything he's got, but eventually admits defeat and swaps the quixotic game for a nap. Rough life.
