Sparky the cat saves himself

Here’s an end-of-the-day-Felid from Hi, Homer!, a good source for all things cat. Poor Sparky found himself marooned atop a basketball backboard (how did he get up there?), and finds a funny way to descend. Clever cat!

    Well heck, I couldn’t have gotten up there in the first place.

    Cats seem to have the knack. Very few kitty skeletons found up trees or utility poles.

      Dog has more sense than to get up there in the first place.

    The reason I love cats some much is they have such miraculous athletic ability. This is a good example. The slip from the pole is understandable, since the cat naturally assumed the pole would have the texture of a tree branch or some other natural material.

    Sparky should sign up for the Fire Department.

      They might be a little suspicious with a name like that!

    How’d he get up there? I dunno, but I suspect that kid had something to do with it. Never seen a cat climb a metal pole.

    I love how he ran to his human, then when he got there he was suddenly nonchalant. Oh hai, I’m just walking over here, just a coincidence that I’m near you…

    HALF CAT, half Sqrl.
    I for one will welcome our new Overlord’s as soon as I can decide if they’re “felirels” or “sqrlcats”. “Catqrlz”?
    See, they’ve cunningly added a great word to my Scrabble dictionary.

    “How did he get up there?”

    Climbed up the fence and jumped across.

    That cat has done that before, looks like a familiar route to me. Of course it did have to work it out the first time…
