Cute Overload :D
The Parabola: Arc defined by a cat leaping for a toy.
NFL wide receiver and Hall-of-Famer Jerry Rice couldn’t have made a catch that gracefully.
That’s exactly what my college students said!
And Jerry Rice wouldn’t have stuffed the ball in his mouth and landed on all fours either, so there.
Poetry in meow-tion!
Great clip. I also admire the gorgeous kitchen.
The kitchen peaked my interest too. Mine is in desperate need of renovation. You know your kitchen is a disaster when you ask This Old House for help. And they send you a repair kit made up of, the Sunday Newspaper, 5 gallons of Kerosene, and a box of matches.
this is my new favorite page of the Ikea catalog
Is Parabola arc also part of a Mobius strip? This sort of demonstrates that with kitty’s fabulous maneuver, and the endless loop of the gif!
very observant, Shelley!
Love them brown tabbies! This one obviously has springs instead of paws.
I might have learned geometry in high school if my teacher had used these types of examples!
Love how he puts the toy in his mouth mid-air so he can land.
One of our cats does that same thing, though our Henry doesn’t get nearly this high. That may have something to do with the size of Henry’s tummy…
I didn’t even see that, I was too mesmerized by his stretched out hind feets (gorgeous)! But the mouf thing is a beauty. Skillz!
That’s my favorite part too. I watched it repeat several times and kept thinking, “Yeah, but where does the thing he caught wind up?” before I figured out that he transferred it from his paws to his mouth in midair. That is genius.
I think you mean “purrabola.”
Mad skillz, indeed. And much more polite than what I was thinking (That cat is a BAMF!)
I see a couple of other cameras on the floor… hmmm, wonder what they captured!
mesmerized me an hubby kept noticing something new with each viewing
just drew us in
There’s a Cure song that has the line, “fires outside in the sky look as perfect as cats.” In fact, a lot of Cure songs that mention kitties. Anyhoodle, I agree with Robert Smith: cats are perfect.
This is why cats are king, rule the world, rule us, rule the universe. They are gorgeous, graceful, scary, and AWESOME!
Cats always stick the landing, that’s kind of in the job description.
I just noticed the tail, so cool!
This is why cats are the awesomest creatures ever.
Yea they are!! Indubitably!! :-D
For some reason, I am just getting a picture with a caption and no video :( At least, I can say that is one pretty kitty :D
Also see this brown tabby, who is induced into vertical leaps of up to 196cm (over 6’5″) to snag a toy mouse:
That’s the same kitty!
It’s the same cat!
Pure AWESOMNESS. Thanks for sharing this :)
I think it’s the same cat as in the OP; the video appears to have been made in the same kitchen :^D
i watched it like 50 times
