fluffy the (pissed off) super cat

saw an odd thing whilst driving around today…

les enfants and i were cruising along a residential street / arterial type thing… a lane in each direction with a turn lane in the middle… we were the third of three cars doing about 30 mph or so… and i see, up ahead of us, a cat come onto the road from the opposite side and start working its way toward us, the oncoming traffic…

so i’m thinkin’ “whoa kitty… lessee… you – 10 lbs moving at .2 mph… each of us – 3000 lbs moving at 30 mph… the physics isn’t looking so good my lil’ feline homey”… dudes / dudettes in front of me either don’t see the thing or are butts ‘cuz they don’t seem to slow down any…

i’m thinking ‘kitty pancake’ and preparing to be horrified by a roadkill incident (good band name)… (not really)… and hoping that my darling daughter kenzie isn’t seeing the carnage unfold… when the cat pauses in the other lane… seems to time his/her move rather perfectly… and proceeds to take a running leap from mid-center-turn-lane and pretty much karate kick the first dude / dudette in the driver’s door, bounce off back into the middle lane, and then somewhat casually (in my eyes) trot back across the road onto the sidewalk on the other side…

’twas one of the stranger things i’ve seen…

as we drove on i was wondering what the driver of car number one did to tick of the cat so much…
