While the Dogs are Away....
Posted by F&S
While we dogs were busy having fun at Skylands, our home in Maine, the cats had free reign of the house and you never know what goes on when we’re gone. We decided to set up a motion cam in the kitchen to see what they dare to do in our space. We must admit, those new Persian cats are pretty cute and quite athletic.
1 I'm so excited Kublai Khan and I have been allowed to explore more of the house...these cool marble floors in the kitchen are fun to slide around on!
2 Wait a minute....what's that?
3 Why, those look like feathers! Is it a bird? I better bat at it with my paw and find out...
4 There it goes! But it's so high...how am I going to get that? I'm feeling an overwhelming urge to pounce on it and bite it!
5 Hi Chin, how's it going? Hey, what are you staring at so intensely?
6 Oh I see...it keeps going back and forth...it's almost hypnotizing...but Chin, it's way too high for our tiny little kitten paws to reach!
7 KK, did you forget that we are cats? We can jump 6 times our body length! We have incredible strength in our back legs that allow us to launch ourselves up to eight feet in the air! Allow me to demonstrate...
8 I think I got it, KK!
9 Um, Chin? It's still up there...Are you going to try again? Should I try to get it?
10 I've suddenly lost interest in catching that silly feather. Not only are we known for our jumping abilities, but also are notorious for being aloof and changing moods in an instant!
