I was sitting alone in the living room a few days ago, well except for a couple of cats. Bear was sound asleep on the couch with Bluebell right next to her. I lowered the footrest on my recliner and woke Bluebell. She raised her head and blinked at me.
I think I spoke to her. The next thing I knew she had launched herself from laying stretched out on her right side to sitting on the couch's arm. I promise she never stood up. She flew from being completely spread across the seat of the couch to sitting facing me grooming her front paws.
How do cats do things like that? I have no clue. Bluebell is one of those cats who can jump from a flatfooted position straight up in the air about 3 or 4 feet. I've seen her run up the hallway, turn the corner into the living room and leap about 5 feet across the room to avoid running into one of the other cats sitting on a rug in her path.
I sure wish someone could explain their body's agility to do such acrobatics. Then I wish someone could figure out how to transfer some of that agility to me!
