Did You Know Kittens Can Fly?

I had my suspicions, and now they have been confirmed. Kittens can, indeed, fly. I got out my tape measure after this death-defying leap. Wendell jumped 5.25 feet ( from the back of the pink chair to where his back paws touched the table). Considering he's about 17 inches from nose to the tip of his tail, that's pretty dang far.

Since then, I have moved the pink chair further away from the table. I think he just views this as a greater challenge, and it's only a matter time before he musters up the courage to leap again. Every day these kitties turn it up a notch. I am having a hard time keeping up with the kitten-proofing around the house.

  1. Too funny! Chaos would do that (he's a 5 yo). Mayhem? Never been that sure of her jumping, so wouldn't even try to jump a foot. As she's 3, I suspect that's not going to change!
