To answer your question:

Cats certainly do like moving objects, especially when they are young! They can't help but jump on those delicate feet in bed or while on the couch!

Here are a few suggestions:
You might want to toss a soft toy in his direction when you are getting into or out of bed or while on the couch.

Saying "no" to your cat chasing your feet will help. At the same time, you may want to send another soft toy his way to keep him distracted.

There are some "educational toys" out on the market that you might like to look into. They will help prevent your cat from chasing your feet. These toys are called "kong" toys. Stuff the kong toys with your cats favorite food and/or treats and toss it to your cat.

There's another product out on the market that is shaped like a ball and dispenses your cats nummy treats when touched. This may help keep your cat's mind on something that is fun and tasty if you have to move your feet around.

If you've tried all of the above and your cat is still chasing your toes, time out in his cat cage might be required.

Although it might be tempting, please remember to keep your feet very still while training your cat outside of his crate.

Hope this is of some help to you.
