This morning, Matt was sitting next to me on the couch, looking at stuff on his usual threads and all of a sudden, he goes, “OH!!!!!!” – scaring the crap out of me.
“Guess what your idiot cat did to me last night! I was at the other computer, playing video games and all of a sudden, out of nowhere, Piper comes barreling into the room, takes a flying leap, and lands on my back, claws out and just stays there! He scared the crap out of me AND he wouldn’t get off!”
I should probably clarify that Matt likes to pick him up and Piper climbs onto his shoulders and just sits there, looking around. Matt will sometimes lean forward to give him a platform and then he’ll just climb further out onto his back, and again, just sit there. I think Piper likes how tall it makes him feel. So, it’s not like this is completely unpremeditated on Piper’s be-half, but never has he been so bold as to be like, “Now! I want to be tall NOW!!!!!!!!”
