Leaping Leopard Cat

A cat flying through the air has been a familiar sight to us lately. While watching television in the evenings we'll see Leopard Cat leaping toward feeding birds and squirrels.

He is the most agile cat I've ever seen.

One afternoon I was reading when in my peripheral vision I saw him leap straight up into the air -- to the height of six feet -- and fortunately missed the bird at the feeder.

I went to the window to see if he was still there and found him hunkered down inside the curl of the garden hose waiting patiently for his next victim.

He saw me in the window and asked? Whacha doing with that black round thing?

And while I'm on the subject of cats -- how did this cat get here without knocking something down?
