    Sure glad she makes it when she jumps over your head. That is really nice how the sun is hitting her on one side. Make a very nice picture.

    They get it from their mom, who, tiny though she is, managed to get into every space on top of everything soon after arriving. I never saw how she got there, though, I would just walk into a room and sense a cat looking at me from somewhere above my eye level, and there she’d be. If she had a grin she would have been like the Cheshire Cat.

    Angus and Donal (older brothers of the Fantastic Four) can apparently levitate… how else can they get from the floor to the top of whatever-the-goal, eight or more feet above their starting point? Actually I think we inadvertently trained them to do that when we first brought them home and attempted to keep them in the bedroom using a 3-foot tall barricade….

    Sherry, yes, because often we’ll pet them even more, trying to get them to stay! Mewsette does like to leap over my head, though, and she does it often. Just so she always makes it–she’s a pretty big girl…

    I think they do the ‘contemplation’ thing as a ploy……..(I am not REALLY going to leap up onto that box WAAAYYY up there…I just want my human to THINK I am…and then lets’ watch her drop everything to ‘rescue’ me….hence, cat gets the attention they were looking for in the first place……..((and as a cat lover and owner, I wouldn’t have it any other way…))
