You may have read previously about my same Orange cat, the most accident-prone feline in the world. He came into my son’s room this morning as I was waking my son. The cat jumped onto the windowsill, as is his custom, so as to pace and generally badger Tyler for attention. When my son finally swung his legs over the edge of the bed to get up, the cat gave a quick flick of his tail and jumped down from the windowsill to the floor. Except that the tail had, beyond probability, in that one flick, created a slip knot in the cord of the window blinds. Which cord tightened with even greater improbability around the last, maybe inch and a half, of his tail. So, as he launched off the sill, his great orange fluffy overweight body was recoiled back towards the wall and suspended about two feet off the ground, head down, legs flailing and his entire weight held in air by about an inch of tail. Yes, this actually occurred right before our eyes. The angry howling and pitiful flailing prevented photography of this National Geographic moment, but I think you get the picture. No worries, the slight sacrifice of much of the flesh on my forearms and Tyler’s quick maneuvering was all that was needed to recover the mad, slashing feline from his predicament. He lives to almost die another way…
How many lives for this Orange Cat?
