Just as one might lounge in the foyer of a grand hotel, my kitties like to lounge in the foyer of our house. They love the area rug there, and have claimed it as their own. Unfortunately, they love it all too much -- they love to pull out little tufts of carpet with their claws, giving (what was once a relatively smooth surface) a rather shaggy appearance. All the better to lounge upon, I suppose!
In fact, the foyer at other times, is also used as an indoor kitty playground. It is one of the few wide open spaces in the house, and is generally littered with cat toys. When they tire of those, once again, they turn to the rug for recreational entertainment.
Since the foyer is right at the base of the stairs to the second story, the stairs themselves serve as a wind-up to the actual event. One at a time (or sometimes two),they run down the flight of thirteen at top speed (thundering herd of elephants, I believe is the correct term), leap on the area rug and slide it across the room as far as it will go. Generally, it ends up half-crumpled in the tiled entranceway.
However, today is Sunday, and the 3-Ds are just chillin' (two at a time) on the carPET! It does belong to them, after all!
