Action Cats Are Full of Action!

Zeus attacks Lopsided Cat from above! And then (unpictured) Lopsided Cat whaps the crap out of Zeus, because Lopsided Cat is about twice as big and has a low tolerance for adolescent cats falling from the sky directly on to his cranium. It’s all in good fun, however. They do generally get along.
“Your kung fu is very good. Your masters have taught you well. But you have much to learn. Let us begin.”
Thanks for the photo of the TLC dojo in use.

Probably just as well that the sequel isn’t pictured- it would probably get an NC-17 for violence.
Ah, the long suffering older cats that whomp the heck out of the younger kittens. It’s amazing that any kitten grows to old age.
… Is there a version without the speed lines? They make my eyes hurt.
I agree with Fletch. Can we see the original, or did you zoom back when you shot this?
Manually zoomed in your lens as you were taking the shot? That must’ve required a slow shutter speed – or did you photoshop it? :P
Generally a death from above attack is the right move against a ‘mech of higher tonnage though, despite the risk.
I think you need to name the next one “Particle Cat”.
This is the original (cropped).
Sooner or later, those cats will remember that bacon business and join forces to deal with their mutual foe.
If you really loved us, you’d have posted this as a video – in “bullet time,” ala Wachowski brother style.
“Kung fu? I’m going to learn Kung Fu?”
Zeus’ fighting technique is
Is it just me or does Zeus look like he was thrown at LC? Maybe that’s why the photo’s so out of focus: Photog had to throw the cat and get the shot off before it landed.
Zoom blur FTW!
I always dwell too long at one end or the other of the zoom range, so I end up with a double image instead of the speed line effect. Well shot.
That must have been some leap. Zeus is straight up and down. I think he’s reenacting that scene from the Star Trek movie where they have to land on the platform.
And he’s the red suit guy.
This is where you get inspiration for battle scenes! I knew they were familiar.
There have been rumbling noises from downstairs recently — no doubt one of the boys is chasing the girl. They’re 16, neutered, and not very serious about attacking each other. But it may be their only outlet for exercise. Crazy cats.
Twilight wants to study the Tao of Zeus so she can get back at the evil Fluffy, who ambushes her frequently.
Don’t know that my cat, Pixel, has quite those kind of Kung Fu chops, but she did dispatch fairly quickly the mouse that somehow got in the house the other day. Which is, after all, her job around here.
Way better than the handbags my cats use!
