Then I put him on the floor with some food up there and he jumped up immediately without breaking sweat.

The cat can dig its claws into ****ing marble? This requires documentary proof.

Also, jumping from the floor to the top of the counter is easier than jumping from something horizontal, as the cat in the picture is doing.

gtf and o

cats jump in with their ass first if you know what I mean mother****er. There's definitely enough momentum to make the jump.

goofyballer,

You are mistaking the angle of the cat's spine with it's trajectory. Two separate things.

His rear end is higher than his front, creating the illusion of a much more downward trajectory than is actually taking place.

Cats know what they're doing.

Re: PA calls Jman "worlds biggest nit" jman220/Edit: Will The Cat Make The Jump?

Burlap - that's possible, though from watching this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjdvpHBNfo4 which was posted earlier in the thread, it appears the cat has the kind of trajectory which would indicate this cat is in fact well on its way down.

I mean, I love cats; they're my favorite animals in the world, although ducks are pretty cool too. I just feel like a mob mentality took over this thread where you're all rooting the cat on so hard that you're projecting onto it, and thus nobody is left to defend, say, physics, or more specifically gravity.

cking - whether or not I have your respect would matter a lot more to me if you would send me noodz of that hot-ass chick. I mean, you can't just tease a forum like that.

Haha wow that's awesome. Didn't read the whole thread. Ok, SOME cats know what they're doing. I'm 50/50 now that's for sure.

Wait!!!

Upon further inspection of that video, the cat was aiming for the paper that was slightly sticking out AND TOTALLY ****ING NAILED IT.

If that paper had been a solid surface he would have definitely made it. I stand by my first statement 100% now haha.

Re: PA calls Jman "worlds biggest nit" jman220/Edit: Will The Cat Make The Jump?

to me it looks like the cat is jumping on the part of the kitchen counter that is infront of the picture (starting left on the half of the pic). in that case it clearly makes it. we really have no idea where the cat is in relation to other objects. and by taking into account that this cat seems well feed and fully grown (which means he is quite used to the surroundings he lives in) i have no doubt that it does.

ps. the cat in that video is quite young (and very weird) and so it's jumping skills aren't so sharp, hence the fall. it's not that i'm saying that cats never ever make mistakes, but i doubt it's in this instance.

it would be like a fully grown man making a step across the room and failing miserably. even this is almost impossible, being there at the right moment to take picture is just plain silly 1 in a infinity. yeah, that's what i'm saying, there will never be a picture of a grown man tripping up on himself.

Cats are ****ing hilarious and nothing anyone can ever say or do will make me believe otherwise.

Especially when they jump at stuff.

Damn the last super-slow motion vid of that cat is sick... you can see it's head get twisted up on the desktop as it's paws and body head down to the floor.

He doesn't have to dig his claws in. If he can get enough friction between his paw pads and the countertop to hold for just a second, he can get his back feet on top of the dishwasher or the cabinet doors and scramble the rest of the way up.

Re: PA calls Jman "worlds biggest nit" jman220/Edit: Will The Cat Make The Jump?

This cat is so making it, it's not even close. I really can't believe all the haters saying the cat won't make it. Not only will the cat make it, but it will make the jump with all four feet at the front of the counter. The front paws are above the counter, and the back feet are on their way toward the front of the body to a point where all four feet will both a) be toward the front of the body, ready for a landing and b) above the counter.

The only reason that cat failed to make it is because it probably thought the piece of paper would have been a suitable hold. Notice that it lands perfectly on the paper, as if it were an extension of the desk.

If the cat jumped by its own two feet of its own free will, I think it's fairly clear that the cat is well past the apex of its jump, and by the look of its angle and assumed trajectory, also considering the slipperiness of the marble or faux-marble countertop surface, the cat will surely fail to make its landing

But I don't think the cat jumped.

I THINK THE CAT WAS THROWN

With all these fresh ICanHasCheezburger photographs of cats in mid-air, I'm finding it increasingly difficult to believe that they're all legitimate and clean photographs of cats jumping. A great deal of these cats HAD to have been thrown by their owners, with an accomplice taking the snap-shot on stand-by

If this cat was indeed thrown, its trajectory could take on almost any form you might see in a standard "Earth's gravity" atmosphere. This cat could be traveling upward at a speed of 60 miles an hour about to be crushed into the ceiling, or it could be traveling BACKWARDS for all we know

I think the next step would be to have a professional photograph analyst do some work with the photo, see if there's any dominant trend of motion blurring in the photo... and maybe get that guy to work alongside a mathematician, and see if we can't nail down a solid trajectory on this thing
