International Kittens of Mystery

Xena the Warrior Kitten Walks on Water.

Today saw the warrior kitten's first encounter with an electric fence. Pretty spectacular. She had just discovered the joys of tree climbing - did the cherry, did the fir, did the quince - then decided that fence posts looked even better.

Big mistake. Before anyone could warn her she grabbed the top strand of tape and ... zap. Being a kitten of the theatrical disposition she flung herself backwards off the fence post, twisted in the air, lowered her undercarriage and ... landed in the horse trough. Shock number two. But then in a feat of dexterity not seen for two thousand years, she bounced off the surface of the water, cleared the lip of the trough and sprinted for home complaining bitterly.
