This is one of my cats, Edgar. One of his goals since he was a wee kitten has been to learn to fly and become a bird of prey. He has not had any lasting success with this goal, but the important thing is, he still tries. For him, it is not only about arriving at the destination but also about the journey and the learning experience in problem-solving.
And the sheer enjoyment of pouncing on unsuspecting fellow cats and human from the top of the refrigerator, or top of a closet door, and showing us that if not for his cat body, he would carry us all off to a lair and make of us a nice meal. Just kidding, he just enjoys scaring us half to death. He eats well and probably knows he wouldn’t be able to hunt Temptations cat treats in the wild.
