I still haven’t figured out what the vertical leap is for. I think that part is just for show.
Before my friend went to bed, he needed to grab a towel out of the hallway closet. He opened the door, grabbed the towel and shut the door, not realizing that while the door was open, Olive had slipped inside.
Eight hours passed, and we all woke up the next morning. As my wife made her way down the hall, she heard a faint, calm “meow” from inside the closet as if to say, “okay, I’m done in here.”
She opened the closet door, and Olive casually emerged. She had spent eight hours inside a closet without any form of commotion or protest. It made me wonder what she had been doing in there that whole time. Maybe she visited another world …
I love it when Olive “hides” under the rug. Never mind that big, cat-shaped lump that you see, that’s nothing.
And while it’s usually just Hazel who she attacks, anyone is fair game when she’s under the rug. This might be because she can’t actually see who she’s swinging at, and just assumes it’s Hazel. Of course, the tiny puncture wounds that Meghan and I often find on our toes would prove otherwise.
This is another comic that basically happened in real life a few months ago.
The cats were sleeping peacefully on the couch, when suddenly Olive woke up and realized that her foot could reach Hazel’s head from where she was laying. So the only reasonable thing to do was to kick. Of course, Hazel wasn’t taking it and began to fight back.
This went on for about a minute, until the two of them got tired and returned to their afternoon nap. As a side note, the middle panel on the bottom row is one of my favorites of the series so far.
