I'd originally just intended to take a photo of the fig tree to show you how much of a hair cut it got a few weeks ago. But as I went to take a photo, Percival went up to the tree to do a bit of exploring.
As you can see, there isn't much in the way of branches to climb, but what's there is big and stable. But my cats are British shorthairs, they're not known for their agility. Percival didnt' get much higher than this before he decided that climbing was all too hard.
So instead he set his sights on the springy branches. I took many, many action photos of him throwing his bulk in the air.
To his credit, he caught his "pray" almost every time, though I don't think he knew exactly what to do with it.
And finally, I just like this photo as a portrait.
