I'm Muffin, known around here as Muff The Fluff and speed is my thing. I'm the fastest cat in Freddie Street and no-one can catch me. There's nothing like racing around at high speed negotiating the hurdles and pitfalls of your racetrack with skill and finesse to light up your life and put a spring in your step.
The key to developing good speed skills is practice, practice, practice! Choose your racetrack to include as much of the furniture as you can manage, preferably over as many floors as your home contains and if you have stairs that's even better. Chairs that can be knocked flat when hit by a speeding cat are especially good and they make a satisfying amount of noise. Don't be concerned about your humans, you'll be long gone before they get there!
Anything tall or high up, like shelves, should be used to give you a high flying boost. My humans are often heard to complain that they only ever see me as a brown blur speeding past their heads. In fact they often wonder if I'm part squirrel! If you can include other cats in your chase that's good too.
Of course the middle of the night is the best time for a good chase, it goes without saying. The humans are in bed and they make an excellent addition to the racetrack. Leila is fond of this as a method of getting them up to feed us but I like it for the variety it adds to the chase.
