It Is a Happy Talent to Know How to Play*

It's rather a difficult maneuver to generate the exact
amount of force needed to jump up on the chair
between the seat and the upper back.
Sometimes, not often, I miss and bonk my sweet heddy.
But not this time.
Once in playing position, it is good to take a moment to collect my wits 
about me while the fev-ver toy is still unaware of my presence.
                          Where is it? Where is it? Where is it? Where is it? Where is it? Where is it?

When I play, I ask my mom like that too ; )
" Where is it? Where is it? Where is it? Where is it? Where is it? "
Till my mom have to delivery it right at the front of my nose, then I can whack !..MOL

It does not want to be seen....

The Island Cats said...

It's playing hard to get, Spitty. Don't bonk your head looking for it!

Oui Oui said...

You might see it if you bonk your head hard enough!

Oh wait, that's stars, not fevvers!

Catio Tales said...

The amount of jumping force is hard to calculate too if your weight is increasing a little!
We trust the fevvers reappeared and got what they totally deserved.

The fevver toy dares not show its face to the infamous Spitster!

I think just about all kitties have this happy talent!

The Furries of Whisppy said...

MOL. You sure your fev-ver toy was unaware of your presence, Spitty? Sure didn't look like it! Hahaha.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Weeeee!!! Look at Spitty all fiesty and playful! That is a good trick, to not hit your adorable littke head! But of course you have talent, who would doubt it!

Star says: Oo where did it go? I'll come over and help you find it! We'll play until we get tired, then maybe snooze in your pink beddy? And I'll lick your sweet heady. purrrrr

CATachresis said...

Perhaps the bonk on your head made you forgetful, Spitty? However, you probably do need to work out an equation to correctly ascertain the optimum veocity to height ratio for the jump :)

Katie Isabella said...

Spitty, your Admiral used to bonk HER head while leaping thusly! Great minds bonk alike me thinks.She bonked her heddy on the coffee table while running after a toy. Now I have yet to do so but I will I am certain. We enthusiastic Kings and (ahem) queens do not bear foolish tables and chairs lightly. XXOO

Angel Simba said...

Looks like your HUman has that talent, and of the TEASING variety!

Pat Hatt said...

That does take skill, bonking your head hurts too, but we carry on.

Mariodacat said...

Hey buddy - did anyone ever tell you it hurts to bonk your own head on a chair? Owie!

Shaggy and Scout said...

It really is a feat to get your
big b.....err...sleek slim self up through that chair opening.

Seville at Nerissa's Life said...

Oh yes... I TOTALLY agree! Bottoms of tables can be very dangerous spots. purrs

Brian said...

You sure got that jump move down Spitty!

Cathy Keisha said...

Uh oh. Looks like you scared that feather toy away. Maybe if you're quiet, it'll think you're asleep and come back.

Cat and DOG Chat With Caren said...

i think your fev-ver dashed away while you were collecting your wits. prol'ly took longer than you realized, there being so many of them lying about that sweet lil heddy if yours...ya gotta be QUICK around fev-vers. Here - try this. Try looking off into the distance with that "fev-ver? what fev-ver?" look on your face. don't move, even when it flutters around the corner of your eye. Don't move, even when it starts mocking you by tickling your ear. then, THEN! when it becomes so brazen as to dance on your nose - Kill it. KIIIIIIIILLLL EEEEEET. It's so much easier that way.

Katnip Lounge said...

Oh Spitty, your poor heddy! Mommy is a KLUTZ and bonks her head ALL the time. You can prolly tell.

KarenMcG said...

Oh Spitty. What bright eyes you have!

Willow said...

Spitty I totally understand the misjudgment in jumping I sometimes do not make it up on first try. Good job with judging it just right this time.

meowmeowmans said...

Those fev-vers sure are fast! Spitty, we hope you find it soon, and that you don't bonk your handsome head in the meantime!

Unknown said...

Spitty você é muito ágil.

Just Ducky said...

You scared the toy away with your purrfect pounce.

Ivan and Izzy from WMD said...

Maybe you need a helmet? Don't let the NCL know you play after being bonked on the headie!
