Tricks for Tuesday: Jumping Demonstration


It is very important that you practice and practice your stunts so you do not get rusty. Here are four photos which demonstrate my jumping technique: First you must get in the proper stance. Then, extend one paw gracefully. Finally, LEAP! Notice the graceful arc at the top of the leap? Also, curling your tail up over your back helps you to slow down for the landing. Have fun leaping!

ps: Do not worry, that stove has NEVER been turned on! The picture is an animated gif that my Mommie helped me make on Photoshop (we just made the 4 photos into 4 different layers, saved as a .gif file, and selected "animate").

I could only see one photo, in which you seem ready to leap ~ you are right though ~ practice is important :)

Boy said...

You are very light on your paws and I think you could be in the olympics!

Just Sharlene and My Spice Cats said...

WOW! I really am amazed that you managed to snap the photos. Great work!

The Cat Realm said...

We are speechless! Smart. Pretty. And an athlete. A graceful athlete!
You are sure cat royalty in every sense! Karl said that if he wasn´t gay he would be so head over heals for you, he would even dare Skeezix!
Who is, I think, the perfect match for you!

Caesar and Princess said...

Dear daisy, Good morning to you. This is a very good shot of you jumping from the counter top to the stove. Believe it or not, I can still do this! Prinnie does not jump anymore.
Yes, the curling of the tail is very important otherwise the powerful force of our leaf could make us crash into mommie's clutter.
Have a happy Day Daisy!!

Tyler said...

Daisy, you're not only beautiful but athletic too. Wow you're quite a special cat. My momma doesn't let me up on the counters because I shed and she doesn't want to find any more hairs in her coffee than are already there. Do your curly hairs fall off? Also your kitchen is as pretty as you are. It has inspired my momma to get off her butt and start cleaning. Hope your full of adventures. Toodles, Tyler

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Daisy, you are a very good jumper! I am glad that you continue to practice cause it is a skill that you don't want to lose.

Morgen said...

That is so wonderful - both your jumping skills and your mommie's photoshopping skills!

Um, but the stove has NEVER been turned on? Is your mommie pulling our leg?

jcfloresinc said...

Wow, that looked so real, like we could reach out and touch you Daisy! Your Mommie is great at that Photo Shop. My mom has got to start practicing her photo shop. Is is true that the stove has NEVER been turned on?
Your FL furiends,
Samantha & Tigger

Kelly Cat said...

Very impressive athletic ability, Daisy! A cat is built to make amazing jumps like that, and then some. (In my younger, lighter days I used to do that, but my humans kept yelling at me to get off the counter.)

You nailed the landing, too. Score that a perfect 10.0!

HRH Yao-Lin said...

wow. That mini movie pic thing is sooo clever! You look awesome as usual but I just think your human is pretty clever for creating that!!! My human is far too stupid!

I love how the oven has never been turned on ha ha sounds like you need to train your human! xx

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

Mrs. Sniffles said...

Whoa, that is COOL.

Miss Peach>(^,^) said...

WOWZA Daisy....you are very impressive with your jumping skills and your mommy sure does know how to take good shots of you. Do you really think she needs to learn more about photography from Luxor's mommy? Well all I can say is the two of you ladies sure do keep us stunned!

Eric and Flynn said...

DaisyMae Maus said...

Cool! Thanks for sharin' your "movie making" tricks!

The Furry Kids said...

Daisy, you have a very lovely kitchen. I just noticed those really nice cabinets with the glass doors. If you crawl in there, it's really cool to look out at everybody. I get yelled at, though, for putting my 'tocks on the plates. Whatever.

EG

Gretchen said...

Wow! that looked like the real thing. I was worried you might jump on a hot stove. You're moms pretty smart. It sure fooled me.

David E Maeda said...

Leaping lizard!!! excellent technique Daisy.

Glad to also see you keep safety in mind...

Derby said...

I do lots of jumping too Daisy. You are so right that you must practice your technique all the time.

小芥 michico said...

Oah Yeah Daisy,
Let's jump together~!

That's a wonderful merge picture~!

Jake and Bathsheba said...

Daisy, Mom tried to view your blog for us on her BlackBerry first thing this morning, but it would not load because the file was too large. She found out why when she viewed your delightful animated photo from her office. We only just now got to see it. Way cool!

Mom thinks that you have a great kitchen, and she believes that she read that your mommie doesn't like to cook. What a shame. Our mom likes to cook--especially bake, though she doesn't make fancy stuff.

Marlene said...

Wow Daisy, that's a stunt!! You and Mommie did a great job making this animated picture!
