Cats sometimes behave like they’re convinced they can do absolutely anything that pops into their heads. Their athletic ability lets them get into predicaments that would never befall a human being. Some of these they can get out of.
Our cat, Peep, when she was a kitten, somehow got up on top of the refrigerator–I didn’t know she could fly!–then got inside the plastic bag containing my ice cream-making machine, and then caused the whole shootin’ match to come crashing to the floor. Happily, she emerged totally unscathed; but my ice cream-making days were over.
