Now that Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is out, people have a chance to see what it’s like first-hand. But they’re not alone. Cats do, too.


As noted on My Game News Flash, Twitter and YouTube users in Japan have started setting up circuits in places their cats have already claimed. Curious feline friends are slightly baffled by the little karts speeding around the floor, with the mini-kart’s camera recording it all.

Cats bring an unexpected element to the home circuit—or rather, if you own a cat, totally expected. The added cat curiosity certainly adds the “live” in Mario Kart Live!
