Judy Spooner: Houdini cat or meathead? You decide
I was writing a news story on my computer when I heard a whoosh sound behind me.
Our cat, Rudolf, or Rudy as we call him, had just leaped from a kitchen counter onto our table. Rudy's momentum sent the tablecloth, and salt and pepper shakers to the brink of dumping everything on the floor.
Part Abyssinian cat, he has well developed back legs that allow him to "leap small buildings in a single bound," just like Superman.
