We are the proud parents to a Norwegian Forest Cat, and she loves nothing better than to 'fly'. She thinks nothing of leaping 12 to 15 feet (from dresser to dresser) or, jumping 6 to 7 feet straight up (to her indoor 'tree') - BOTH from a standing position!! -wk-
Science recently discovered that when cats drink, they pretty much defy gravity. The tongue barely brushes the surface of a liquid before darting quickly back up, forming a column of water between the moving tongue and the surface of the liquid. Then the cat's jaws snap closed around this column of water, and the cat swallows it. Boom -- a refreshing drink, feline-style.
