|Cat vs. Shoe|
They are one of her favorite play things. Who needs rubber bands and milk caps when there are strappy sandals and crisp slip-ons? Though seemingly harmless, they can be quite dangerous when found resting too close to another toy. Never fear! My cat will save the day.
From out of the blue (aka, around the corner), she sails in and tackles the shoe to the ground (read: lands on it awkwardly), then bunny-kicks it into lifelessness. Sometimes this involves an army of shoes (see figure 2A). The shoe isn't moving (because she is no longer kicking it), but she holds it down anyway, just in case the shoe gets a second wind.
My brave kitty. Now how could I not be a proud cat mama?
