Shoulder Surfing



So there were so many better picture of me showing off my Shoulder Surfing skills but the LL wasn't exactly thrilled with her pictures since it was early in the morning and she was on her way to ride Snap. So we compromised. Here you can see one of my intermediate moves, crossing on the front of the shoulder. This requires a good sense of balance but is fairly attainable to most cats as long as the humans help a bit. I had no help as my human was working a camera at the same time.

I've been really working on my mounting technique. The easiest is when the LL is putting her shoes on and I can just leap on her shoulders. On Saturday I attempted the most difficult task I've ever tried while Shoulder Surfing. The LL stopped half way down the stairs so I went down a few and threw myself at her back from a standstill. She was VERY impressed (I assume that's why she was lauging?).

Kaze, I am very impressed with your athletic ability and your balance. I frequently try to jump on my humans' backs, but they just don't seem to appreciate shoulder surfing the way the Lap Lady does.

Wow, Kaze! You have some very impressive shoulder surfing skills. I think I may have to give it a try.

Scout said...

Wow! I have yet to try shoulder surfing and think I should very soon. I usually just beach myself on Mommy’s lap (more room there than her shoulders, wink, wink). Don’t tell Mommy I said that! She’s lost 40 pounds and it would hurt her feelings!..

Purrs,
Scout

Kaze, I tried the same thing this morning when Mom got out of the shower - but she didn't think it was so funny. Maybe next time I try it I'll make sure she has her PJs on?!

Maggie loves to shoulder surf. She gets on dad's shoulder and tries to get the ceiling fan chains. She's so silly!

Caesar and Princess said...

Yay this is really great Kaze!

Annie Mosaic Cat said...

Oh this is extraordinary!
It reminds me of that little Lucy foster darling who surfed on ML's back and shoulders. But she never came around to the front, which is worth many more difficulty points!
I have many, MANY talents and interests, but this is not one.
Much to ML's regret.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Good job Kaze, we are so impressed dat we is gonna try it!

Lux said...

You two work well together, like you've been practicing for years!

I would knock Mom over if I did something like that!
