Cricket Cat....ATTACK!!

Sometimes Meowmy calls me her "cricket cat" because I can leap straight up in the air and go really really high. I only do it if I'm about to pounce on another cat so it takes a lot of concentration and the right elements. Last night Meowmy was reading (again). That interferes with Kaze & I getting snuggled for the night so after my usual 2 attempts to nicely suggest Meowmy PUT THE BOOK DOWN!! I decided to just play until she was done. I crouched in the pile of her shoes (um...closet anyone?), set my sights on Kaze, wiggled my butt....waited...wiggled my butt some more, got my eyes wide, my ears flat, and then.....I LEAPT!! I jumped so high that I litterally cleared the bed and Meowmy couldn't believe what she saw. She says I have very good form and I tuck my front legs really nicely so that if I was a horsey I'd win lots of ribbons.

Later I lay on top of Kaze and annoyed her some more. She doesn't like when I sit like a brick on her head so she can't breath. I won! By the time we got kicked out of the snuggle room I had made my way to the middle of the bed and right in front of Meowmy. I'm winning the war my friends!

Oh that sounds like a fantastic leap! I'd bet on a meezer for that any time. I've seen Cheysuli leap!

That cricket-jump sounds like a good skill to have. I like to get high, but I am not very good at jumping. Maybe if I wiggle my butt some more times before I jump it will help.

Wow! That sounds almost like my pouncing on the SOR the other day! Good job!!!

I'm taking notes...I jump really high too when I'm playing with the wand toys with Mom, but I've never tried a bed leap! Tara

You're right. Sleep time is for cuddling us - NOT for reading. We're trying to train our people on that one too.
