Cat jumps a good distance with his bed in his mouth.

It was a very ambitious and self-confident jump which was luckily successful. I have not seen a cat jumping this sort of distance while carrying quite a large bed in their mouth.

We are told that he wanted to change his sleeping position and he decided to do it all himself without any intervention from humans which I love to see.

He was a little fortunate because the bed landed with him right way up with him inside it! It could not have been a more successful relocation. The fact that he decided to take his bed with him is interesting. There are very few domestic cats who’d think about doing it. Perhaps he developed a habit.

We are told that the cat is a male. But he seems to be acting out a female trait, that of carrying kittens from one den to another by taking them in the mouth by biting the scruff of their neck. It is probably a far fetched idea but I wonder if this cat is expressing a female desire to care for her offspring in relocating to a safer place.

Note: I have to make the usual notice: sometimes embedded videos stop working because it disappears on YouTube where it is hosted. If that has happened, I am sorry.
