Rusty is pretty cautious. He not only Looks before he leaps… he pauses and thinks and thinks and thinks.
What he is calculating is whether or not that blasted office chair, which is sitting on a smooth plastic rug protecting pad, will move out from under him if he jumps from this angle.
He pauses quite a while thinking this through. He changes his mind and jumps down to the ground and then up onto the chair – much less risk.
Smart kitty! If only I would think my actions through like that all the time.
