The Directors of the Institute for Kitty Cat Research have observed that the study subject named Zippy (aka The Zipper and Zip) is a deep thinker. For instance, in this photo she is thinking about whether to pounce on Citikitty or to pounce on Socks, both of whom were napping within striking distance. Does she want to start a fight or a chase this morning? Should she jump on Socks who likes a good wrestle or on Citikitty who will flee up the stairs and into the walk-in closet?
Zippy pondered the pros and cons for at least thirty seconds. Immediately after this photo was taken, she decided that a rousing fuss would be a good start for her day. She made a flying leap onto Socks’ sleeping form and a hissing tussle took place with paws swinging. In a flash, Socks and Citikitty ran up the stairs with Zippy in pursuit. It seems The Zipper’s strategic thoughts paid off and she got to enjoy both of her favorite forms of entertainment.
