Last night the Guardians were watching something on the TV about a big cat that lives way up in the mountains. It was kind of grayish and spotted, and I noticed that its color was not all that different than mine. It was called a Snow Leopard, and since I am kind of the same color, I realized that I am probably part Snow Leopard! I mean, I know My parents were a long-haired feral cat and a short-haired feral cat, but who’s to say that one of their parents wasn’t a Snow Leopard? I never met My grandparents and perhaps that is because they live way up in the mountains! Anyway, I decided that today I would try to explore this newly discovered facet of Myself by climbing up to the highest point that I could find in My Indoor Domain.
Yes. Being up high just feels right. I am certain I am part Snow Leopard. I shall sit up here on this cupboard…errr, I mean…mountain peak and wait for prey to pass by below Me. When that happens I shall pounce. Well…maybe I will pounce. Actually, it kind of looks like a long way down. I’m feeling a little nervous about pouncing from this height. Hmmmm…how did I get up here again? Not to worry, I’m sure My Snow Leopard instincts will kick in and I will be back on the ground in no time. Any minute now. Just waiting for those instincts to kick in…<gulp>
