Ready for Takeoff!

I have shown this picture before, where I am leaping from the counter to a tabletop. But I thought it would be real funny to show you my leap from underneath!
Here I am getting ready to take off:
This is me lifting off! Sorry the picture is blurry. My Mommie had to lay down on her back and the camera could never capture the start of the jump because I am too fast. Notice how I raise my paws at lift-off?
Here I am in mid-flight! You can see I do not have many furs on my undercarriage.
Prepare for landing!
While my Mommie was laying on the floor, here is what she saw: this is the Landing Crew!

119 Notes for Daisy:

Karen, author of "My Funny Dad, Harry" said...

Those are very interesting shots of your jump! My cats have lots of underfurs. The landing crew made me laugh!

Country Cats said...

You're such a good jumper, Daisy! My furs are about the same on my tummy but Kaleb and Teal'c are the floofiest on their tummies! Harley, I hope you made sure Daisy landed safely.

Purrs,
Rosie

The Lazy Iguana said...

You need two more cats. Like I have.

Tracey and Huffle said...

Daisy, the lack of furs on your undercarriage means that you are more aerodynamic and therefore faster.

Huffle Mawson

Poppy Q said...

That was a great jumping lesson, and you pit crew is kinda cute.

I am not a flying cat like you Miss D, I admire your talent.

Jenn said...

That is such a perfect shot of Harley, capturing his curiousity! And thanks for demonstrating your jumping so nicely, Daisy. :-)

Margaret said...

AM said...

You are quite a flier Daisy! And that sure is one cute tummy! Harley always has the most inquisitve face!

Christine and FAZ said...

Excellent photography, excellent flying and excellent flight crew too. FAZ

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

WOW....DAISY THOSE PICTURES ARE AWESOME!!! You are a great jumper!

Your landing crew is adorable!!!

Alasandra said...

The landing crew had us in stitches. Great jump Daisy. ~S,S,C & F

The Island Cats said...

Wow! Great action shots of you jumping, Daisy! Did Harley clear you for take off???

Meghann said...

Oh my gosh what great shots! Daisy, you are very talented at jumping, and your crew looks very capable as well :)

Furkidsmom said...

Those are very cool shots of your belly!! We laughed out loud at the picture of your landing crew!!

Sniffie and the Florida Furkids

Dream Mom said...

Great shots by the Mommy! My favorite part was the landing crew (nice job Harley!). Thanks for a good laugh this morning.

I also had to laugh because when my cat Wiggles jumps(he's a Munchkin dwarf cat with short legs)
his little front legs go out to the sides like airplane wings. I wasn't sure if all cats did that and now I know it's just him. LOL!

VampyVictor said...

I bet your tummy is just so glorious to kiss (momma says) and I is just thinking of all the less fur balls! hehe
ps: Momma just wants to give Harley the biggest kissy on his sweet lips! :))
V-V

Ramses said...

Daisy you are very athletic, I bet you get lots of chickens to eat too! ;)

Abby Normal and Stygia said...

You have great style! Neither of us are such graceful jumpers. Do you by chance give flight school lessons?

Purrs,
Abby & Stygia

Freya's Staff said...

That's a great picture from underneath! and of course,I'm always glad to see a pic of harley! does he ever take a bad photo?

Eric and Flynn said...

Those are great photos showing your jumping skills. Your landing crew looks like he is wondering what on earth is your mum doing lying on the floor.

Jenn Thorson said...

All you needed was a cape!

Forever Foster said...

That was a great look at your jumping. Your paws look very sweet tucked up like that.

Harley, you're a doll!:)

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

Daisy, you always show us something new so we can learn more about catflight! You know how to make yourself fly farther by tucking in your landing gear, just like a plane...and Harley, he's so young and cute and impressionable!

Princess said...

Harley is a good landing crew! very adorable too! I think you are a good jumper daisy, I used to be... now, I am just really careful. Mom treats me like a piece of glass :-D

Happy day

i beati said...

Quite an astute group for your aireborne endeavors !!You look smooth ...

Lin said...

Harley's photo is too funny! It reminds me of Hobbes--he watches everything Grace does like she's some cat god or something. Does Harley do that too?

Tulip's Talking said...

ROTFLOL...loved that ending!!!

Gandalf and Grayson said...

Leaping Lizards, Daisy! That was cool! We love your undercarriage! And Harley looks way kyoot looking down at your Mommie!

Keisha said...

Wow. U is like a rocket! :)

Two Sisters said...

Your Mom is a really good photographer and you are a really good jumper Daisy! We really enjoyed the pictures and it looks like Harley did too!

-d ma said...

i think harley is asking, 'what the world is my mom up to now?'

Fin said...

Oh that was fun! What an action filled post!

OscarTheCat and Henry said...

Wow Daisy, you sure showed your Mommie some great moves. Looks like your modeling session confused Harley a bit though.

Very cute!

OscarTheCat

Zeus said...

Terrific jump there, Daisy! Very nicely done.

Angus Mhor said...

You're very aerodynamic, Miss Daisy, with such a smooth undercarriage. Your ground crew is very attentive, too. Does he tell you where to park after landing?

arbed said...

What a great jumper you are, Daisy! And Harley was very good at his job - he knew not to get in the way. Edgar would have been sniffing my head and camera and walking all over me getting in the way. Good job to both of you!

Angel said...

Great Jumping skills. harley always looks so wide eyed! Kirby needs to study your lessons. and he needs a landing crew. He rolled over and fell out of the Cat tree. Scared Mom and Dad half to death! He is OK, and I don't think he was even embarrassed!

Sarge Charlie said...

UP, UP, And Away, it is a bird, it is a plane, no, it is supercat.

momsbusy said...

great photos! you have such a cute tummy. skeezy may faint! harley makes a good crew member.

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

smiles, auntie bee

The Creek Cats said...

gemmak said...

Fabulous pictures of the undercarriage and landing crew :O))

Puglette said...

hi daisy! what a great perspective, that's really neat! and harley is very funny as your landing crew.
hugs,
puglette
:o)

Misha said...

Your Mummy is a very good photographer, Daisy! It's really hard to get such good action shots in focus.

I think Harley needs ear muffs and those paddle thingies that those guys have at the airport!

Pricilla said...

Whew! That is some cool photography. If my publicist tried that with me I think I would land on her head. Especially now that I am so very pregnant!

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

Sweet girl, that was awesome!!!!

Khyra The Siberian Husky said...

I'm too khwikhk a leaper fur my mom to khapture!

Tristan and Crikey said...

Did you take your flying lessons at Kittyhawk?

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Wow! It is interesting to see what one looks like from below. I should walk on the Woman while she has her camera...

Tom and Tama-Chan said...

You have amazing style, Daisy! But that picture of your "landing crew" really made our #1 laugh!

Your Pals,
Tom and Tama-Chan

BumbleVee said...

ahhaahha... Daisy this is pretty funny. Hey, and you are pretty darn streamlined in flight! There is no soft tummy there at all! You need that extra skin so you can get that length in your stretch....
Wish I was there to see Mommie....flat on her back, madly clicking away...... it would be fun to get a photo of her doing her own antics to get a pic of you and Harley... and, how did she entice you to do the space flight?.... hmmmmm...... or is it just fun to do on a regular basis?

Junior and Orion said...

Such athleticism Daisy! And that landing crew...too cute!

Camie's Kitties said...

Daisy, that was very informative. We think you have a cute belly even if you don't have a lot of furs.

Harley looks like he would be a good landing crew for you.

Tavi, Cody, Camie, Miss Jade and Gracie

hopeful said...

Oh cat! You're a great one. Wish to have one like you.

Babs (Beetle) said...

That was a great jump Daisy!

We have lots of fur all over. Do you think it's because you are a curly cat that you don't have fur on your belly?

MB said, she is sad she can't lay on the floor to take photos anymore. She would have a hard job getting up again he he!

Purrs, Sukie x

T.Allen-Mercado said...

Daisy you are quite the jumper! And your mom is an awesome photographer to capture your amazing jumps. Hi Harley!

Mo said...

Daisy, you always make me smile - but the pic of the Landing Crew made me LOL.
Thanks!

Daisy, you look so long in those pictures! (And Harley looks like he's thinking, "What are you doing, Crazy Mommie?")

Tiger Lily said...

You are a very cute landing crew Harley.

Liss said...

Those are some great shots! Good jump.

KAT said...

I had to laugh at the jumping photos...Mom did a great job in capturing your agility!!

Cory said...

That was awesome! You are definitely aerodynamic and a very skilled jumper!

CatLadyDiary.com said...

you are a great jumper and your undercarriage is very cute!

Derby said...

Harley probably wondered what your mum was doing on the floor!

Black Cat said...

Oh, great, great, great! Does your Daddee ever come into the room when a photo session is going on and say, "?&*^%?" or words to that effect? If so, could he take some photos please? I know he doesn't read your blog (like my family) but... Actually, I think my Dad has read one of my posts, but only because he wanted to know what neurological tests I had! I see no evidence of any further family interest in mine humble mumblings! :) xxx

Piggy and Grover said...

Bwa ha ha!! UNDERCARRIAGE! Oh, Daisy, you slay us! You are a master jumper! Are you going to try out for the Meowlympics? Harley looks very impressed - shocked even!

The Devil Dog said...

Those are great photos. We are glad Harley decided NOT to follow in your footsteps.

Roxy

DaisyMae Maus said...

Super sexy undercarriage, Miss Daisy! Mom can't capture ME doin' that stuff 'cuz she keeps tellin' me NOT to jump!
DMM

SophieKitty said...

Those are great shots of your mighty leap, Daisy. Harley needs those sticks to guide you in!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Daisy!
I liked your takeoff photoshot!
And Harley's expression is priceless!
Kisses and hugs
Lorenza

Jan's Funny Farm said...

What an interesting view. You are a good jumper, Daisy. And what a good example you set for your landing crew.

Bae Bae said...

What pawsome action shots. :)
The landing crew sure is very cute.

~ Bae

Holly said...

That is great!

Sweet Praline said...

You sure are brave Daisy! I think Harley was trying to figure out what your mom was doing on the floor!

Mr. Black said...

Those are great photos, Daisy! Your mom did a great job capturing you in mid-flight. I also liked the top photo because it shows all your beautiful markings.

I am a pretty graceful flyer, too.
Elvis Pussley, however, is a big galoot.

Jemma and Tofu said...

Daisy, you are a talented leaper! Harley looks a bit confused though :D

C said...

A flying kitty!! Wow!!

pippin, turtle, and ava said...

Harley reminds us of the lolcat that says "Want me to call an ambulance?!?!"

Janet said...

Wow! Your mommie worked really hard to get these special shots of you, Daisy! How many jumps did you have to do?

Thoughts said...

LOL., This really made us laugh Daisy. Your Mommie is a great photographer and we love the action shots! hee hee hee!

Theodore and sasha

The Crew said...

You sure are aerodynamic, Daisy, flying through the air so easily. Harley is watching so intently. He must be taking flying lessons.

Sunny's Mommy said...

Those are cool pictures showing your undercarriage during a leap! BTW you look like all muscle and even your squishy belly disappeared. I wonder where it went?

CatHerder said...

That is incredibly adorable!

LC, Ayla, and Iza said...

Wow, that was quite a jump!

Van Insurance said...

Truly inspiring. I hope this prospers. Thanks for the tips.

MYA Cosmetic Surgery said...

Daisy, the lack of furs on your undercarriage means that you are more aerodynamic and therefore faster. Thanks.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

herecomesharry said...

Those are very cool pictures of how you look when you jump. My mommy laughed when she saw the picture of Harlie looking down in the last picture. she thought it was cute.
Harry
