Ten kitties: Invisible cat


The houses in Jakarta all have big metal gates, and the neighborhood cats seem to spend about a quarter of their time squeezing under or through them -- going inside for safety and coming back out to forage, fight or roam. Most of the time they have to wriggle under the gate, and they really have an impressive ability to flatten themselves and get through. Sometimes when they emerge they'll give an irritated shake of the hind leg as if to say, Stupid gate! Who put that thing there anyway?

When I was little I remember seeing one of my cats squeeze herself through a small diamond shaped hole in the wire fence surrounding our back yard. even if she had been soaking wet I couldn't have imagined her fitting through there.
cats have lots of tricks up their sleeves. i'm always impressed by the old standby, "stretching to three times my normal length."
