^The only cat I ever saw do 15-ish feet was my grandmother's.  She (my grandmother) was asleep and the cat was on her feet.  My grandmother then kicked in her sleep, sending the cat careening through the air.  She hit the wall across the room near the ceiling.  She was fine.

I currently have a furry bundle of black cat on my lap.  Makes typing interesting.

Reminds me of one time a neighbour's cat was stretched out on the roof of our veranda - all I did (honest guv) was to flick the roof just under where the terrorising little bugger's head was...

"Wow! 15 feet..."

Adorable.

Of our four cats only one, Syd, likes to go under the covers, the rest just see a woolen throw and endlessly paw it to death (the feline habit of "making dough"). 

We used to have a green sunblind for the conservatory's glass roof, this was a just a large square of fabric to fend off the direct summer sun that stretched over the outside of the roof and was fastened at each corner by large rubber bands. Syd would see this as a "thing to play with" and, like the crawl net on the Royal Marine assault course, a source of endless fun. Many a time I would be quietly working away on the laptop to be interrupted by a banging noise on the roof, seeing the view of the underside of a cat as it crawls along a glass roof is one of life's small pleasures. The really odd thing is it never once occurred to me to grab a video camera - it would have been the easiest 250 I ever earnt.

  Classic!

Tesla was trying to keep warm.  Our heat had gone out.  Later when I lit a fire in the fireplace he tried to jump in.  Luckily, he did not succeed.

We have a little West-Highland Terrier named Masie - couldn't imagine life without her. Costs me a fortune in Jerky, but she's worth it. She goes nuts at the sound of me scrunching the packaging. Can scrunch anything else, no response, but a Jack-Links Jerky packet..............

She is doing fine. Surprisingly, she's become more obedient, less frivolous, stopped licking my face. I guess the screams of a human alpha-male (my ex-stepfather) work on her, ... not that I like the thought of it.

I don't have any pets. They all grew up and moved out of the house.

These guys were feral when they showed up on our property, and of course the wife began feeding them and now they have wormed their way in the house.  First however, we had to trap them with wild animal traps as we could never catch them, had them "fixed".  

The black and white one (Felix - I know, how original, wife's idea) is a lover boy and will just lay on you wanting petting all the time. It took him about a year for him to trust us and come inside.  The other one, Freddie is like Freddie Kruger.  He will hunt and eat anything, we have found a good handful of squirrels half eaten, mice, lizards, occasional birds, and a small snake once.  After about 3 years, he finally trusted us enough to come in the house to sleep at night.  Another 2 years and now will lay on my wife's lap for petting, but is still paranoid as can be if anyone moves.  They have been great fun!

My wife had 2 cats (brothers) when we got married, and my cat (Ruthie, pictured above) wasn't used to having other cats around.  She was pretty terrified of both of them and disliked them intensely, though they were pretty mellow around her.  My cat would hiss and growl when they were around, but was apparently too afraid to attack.  Every now and then one of the brothers would get tired of her attitude and calmly back her into a corner and just stare her down, scaring and humiliating her in the process.  Sadly, the two brothers have since passed away from old age, and my Ruthie is once again an only child, a position she hopes to keep.  She's a sweet cat when she gets her way.

She (the grey one) hates him (the black and white one). She was fully grown when I brought the b& white one home as a kitten and has no use for him at all
 
He tries to get her to play but she just growls and swats at him. Now what he's bigger he fights back ..
There doesn't seem to be any real malice - just annoyance and keeping him in his place.
 
But they do play a game where they chase each other all over the house.
 
I was amazed to see them both on the same chair - she usually walks out of a room when he walks in (he wants to be around her all the time)
 
The whole cat politics thing makes me laugh - a great source of amusement
