For the first time ever, Sprocket leaped from the kitchen table to the counter! The video is only seven seconds long – blink and you’ll miss it.
I haven’t figured out how to play things in slow motion, but on my computer I was able to fast forward and rewind repeatedly over his jump, to great comic effect. I was also able to discern that at no point are all of his feets in the air.
He was highly motivated to get onto the counter because that is where we keep the crunchies so the Miao Uncles can feast at their leisure and Sprocket doesn’t become a bouncy-ball. Now we’ll have to come up with a new strategy.
Within the last few days, Sprocket has broken all sorts of barriers. He has scaled to the top of the highest bookcase in the study (by way of a kitty tree and a cabinet). He has gotten onto a bathroom cabinet that used to be a safe spot for crunchies. And now he has gotten to the most exciting place in the house – the kitchen counter!
ooop. the photos got out of sequence and I can’t fix it.
