Leapin' Lizards!

As you all know, we (Bugsy and Pixie) take our duties for teaching young Ziggy -- as a Mancat-in-Training -- very seriously. We've previously shown you our efforts on getting him to oversee our domain and attack nip toys, and he's shown great progress in his nearly 3 months with the Krew. We turned our next efforts on showing him how to leap tall buildings in a single bound.


Haha! Just kidding. But jumping is important to us kitties, so we had to make sure he had the technique down. Form is everything, with arms and body outstretched.



You also need your head up to see where you're going, and a straight back for that aerodynamic edge.



Speed is good too, so you're just a blur as you fly through the air.



By jove, we think he's got it!

Have you taught him how to jump up in bed with the beans without them feeling him get there? Hahaha funny thing is, I was just starting to learn it myself and the boy took what I was learning and mastered it before I could! Pft! But that's my boy....

PS: big brother's still a lardbutt lol, especially on the way down. Sounds more like an explosion than a cat jumping down rofl!
