BOING BOING BOING ZOOM

(I may be a touch punchy right now, as my cats were practicing parkour on my legs round about way-too-early this morning...)

That said? I love this. :)

Yay!

I'm happy to hear that.

Back in junior high and high school, I lived in a trailer, which had a bedroom at each end. We had a cat who liked to run from one end of the trailer to the other, make a flying leap, and land on the bed (and the person) at the far end. Back and forth, all night. Or at least until someone closed the bedroom door and *WHUMP* that was the end of that game.

Re: Yay!

*cackle*

I've got a pair of relatively sedate 12-year-old cats and a 'kitten' who'll be three this spring, but you wouldn't know it. He gets the zooms and it's entertaining as crap, but I wouldn't call what he does parkour -- or at least not very good parkour! He isn't graceful at all.

But the older two boys, on the rare occasions when they get up the energy...grace in flight.

Re: Yay!

It really does depend on the cat. I've known cats that were just about cushions with feet, and cats that thought they ought to have wings but made do with spring-powered paws.

Re: Yay!

And cats like my roommates' Charlotte, who can't be over nine pounds (counting all the fluff) but somehow stomps like a tiny, delicate elephant...
