There have been many studies done on the social interactions between cats and they have all come to the same conclusion: yes, they do copy each other.
Cats are highly social animals, so it is no surprise that they copy each other when they are playing. However, there are many different ways in which cats copy each other and not just in their playtime activities.
Cats use all kinds of vocalizations and body language to communicate with each other, but they also have a way of copying each other’s actions. This often happens when one cat wants to play with another cat who doesn’t seem interested in playing at first. The first cat will start doing something like walking around or meowing loudly in order to attract attention from another cat who then starts doing the same thing, until both cats get bored and stop!
