|Mommi had a friend who once said of our *thundering* through the house, "It sounds like a herd of tiny elephants!" Our beloved Angel Pie Joe Thunderbear, a lilac Persian , was small, but he is the only cat we have ever known who would actually STOMP when he walked. Violett the Battlecat used to race through the house and literally bounce off walls and doors, and continue undeterred. Then of course we have that magic ability to be so swift and silent we will be behind you and suddenly we are in front of you and it is most eerie, like a disapperaing act. What I love most (I am APJ Thunderbear's son) is to gallop down the hallway and into the dinging room or the front room and leap gracefully over any cat in our way! We all have that ability. Now China, our Himalayan, never thunders and and is very inactive. We have noticed a tendency in our Persians and Himmies to be of a more solemn attitude, not acrobatic, but Persians mixed with another breed tend to be active and climb, something Mommi dislikes. What she doesn't realize that, in the still of the night when she hears a *thundering* crash, one of us, we never tell who, has clumb! Let me be quick to add that I never partake in such, um, raucousness ---only because I am HUGE in stature.
