Friday Frenzy!

Kitties!

Felix here.

One of my favorite things to do is gallop around the skyways like a madcat.  I do this every day, several times a day.  Mommy and Daddy will be in the house and they can hear the boards flexing and springing when I'm working off steam.  It sounds like thunder!

Here's a sample:
Stretch first.  You have to make sure your claws are sharp (for maximun gription) and your toes are limber.

Choose your route judiciously.
Make sure there's no impediments.

Start off with an easy trot, to get a feel for your frenzy.

Build up some speed.

Aim for the first obstacle to work out on.

Scratch the bejeebers out of it...

...then quickturnaround...and LEAP!

Run like the w-i-n-d!

Embrace your inner crazypants.

It's always a good idea to practice a quick stop.  Just in case.

The second time, take your route at FULLSPEEDAHEAD!!!!

THUNDER down the track.

Be ready to change course at any moment.

LEAP!

Land...

...and make sure to stick the dismount.

Happy Friday!

  1. Felix, you are a true feline gymnast! You're so lucky your dad is handy and can build such lovely runways. All we have are the stinkin' stairs! But they are good for a rousing game of THoE.

  8. That looks like so much fun! We like to "embrace our inner crazypants" around 3 in the morning, thundering up and down the stairs that's just outside our pawrents bedroom...and fully armed with our jingly bells on our collars. Heh heh. Maybe that's why Daddy wear ear plugs to sleep.

  17. Wow, Felix, I'm out of breath just watching you! The only skyway around here is a spiritual one and it does nothing for the waistline. Do they have these for humans, hehe?

    We really admire how good the lounge is looking lately. You all have done a terrific job!

  39. Love the tail, in the "quick stop" pic. You hear about how cats use their tails for balance -- this really shows it. What a happy-looking guy, judging by the all the tail-shots. Cool!

  40. I know my gang is so jealous of the Lounge. What a fabulous place your mommy and daddy have made for the family. I'm also going to Office Max tomorrow for box lids and spending New Years Eve making covers. Thanks for the directions, Trish.
