WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
Everybody knows that the best piece of furniture is the sofa. We cats are only allowed on a specific area of our sofa: Here is a picture of me in that sweet spot: So, since both of us want to be on the sofa, we had to make some ground rules. But they aren’t very fair. Oh, whatever. Here are the rules:
1. We are only allowed on the part of the sofa that has a cover on it.
2. When Sasha is on the sofa she won’t allow me on the sofa. What happens is that I trot over to the sofa for a little cozying, but when I look up, Sasha leans over the edge and gives me an evil look. If I don’t skedaddle right away, Sasha will swat me on the head. And I trot away with my head hanging. Oh, don’t be so dramatic.
3. When Lola is on the sofa and I want to sit there Lola gets off. This is how I do it: first I walk up to the sofa and see that Lola is lying on it, then I give Lola one of my evil looks and she runs off. If she doesn’t hop off the sofa immediately I hang over her until she gets the message! Like this: 4. On very special occasions Sasha will allow both of us on the sofa only if there is a person between us holding a pillow so we can’t really see eachother.
5. Follow all these rules.
The minimum height required for a falling cat to turn itself around so it can land on its feet (safely) is around 30 centimetres (12 in). Cats without a tail also have this ability.
