Dusty's new game...cats are inscrutable!

Can someone explain this whole phenomenon to me? I mean, other than that cats are just crazy? :laughing:

It is seriously impressive in one sense, though. If I could leap 4.5 times my height, I'd be reaching 25 feet a leap! :eek: But what's the purpose? :o :laughing: Cracks me up every time!

:laugh::laugh::laugh: Too funny!

And those are two beautiful cats!

My Lady G. used to love to get behind my bedroom door and hide, waiting to play. I'd slowly brush a rolled piece of newspaper across the opening, and she'd launch a paw out after it, shredding the paper to pieces. I'd peek at her behind the door, and she'd be staring at me all crazy looking! :p She loved to get behind this door and do that. And I knew better than to stick my hand, or fingers at that opening. :p She was as fast as lightning, and her claws were razor sharp. It's amazing how sharp their claws can get.

And yes, cats can be so silly! :laughing:

Ya, I get that crazy look from Dusty, too! Big eyes, can't tell if she's surprised, crazy, or just focused! :D

We're lucky--both JD and Dusty are pretty good about letting me clip their nails. This is a good thing, since Dusty will also launch herself up on our shoulders...or close to the shoulder, anyway, and then she claws her way up the rest of the way! :eek: I've taken to wearing long-sleeved shirts all the time... :o

Hmmm...I don't believe I've ever used newspaper as a toy--will have to give that a try because it does seem like the most excellent shredding texture! :thumbs up

Anything that moves it fair game for hunting :cat:

So maybe she's jumping up there because the jackets are blowing in the breeze? We do have a ceiling fan running nearby all year round that does cause some really minute movement...maybe she thinks my coats are alive!! :laughing: "It's alive; [SIZE="3"][I]it's alive[/I][/SIZE]!" she says in her best Dr. Frankenstein voice :laugh:
