Do you know other ways of saying that someone is getting closer from another thing?
For example, I know this two ways of saying:

''The man went closer to the cat.''
''The man walked up to the cat.''

Do you know other ways of saying the act of walking to another place/thing?

What Phil said is best for approaching something/someone in a normal manner. But if you're up to no good or if you simply want to surprise someone, you might sneak up on him. 😈

~He sneaked up on the cat.
*You might hear 'snuck up' on the cat, but it's not accepted as correct in come circles. However, it is in the dictionary.

~Sometimes I sneak up on my husband just to see him jump. 😉

Dictionaries:
Sneak up (on somebody/something) phrasal verb
to get very near someone before they notice you
sneak up on: <em>Don’t sneak up on me like that!</em>

(Be) Up to no good-informal phrase
doing or planning something bad, illegal, or immoral

More formally, we can say that he approached the cat. More informally, we can say that he got close to the cat.
