Catolympics - High Jump


First, I really have to acknowledge and thank Fin for organizing the whole Catolympics competition. I am having so much fun!

This will be my third and last entry. Cats in Maryland are hosting the High Jump contest. Here are the rules:

1. Provide a picture or video of you jumping high. If you want to be judged simply on how high you jumped, you should also if possible provide a second picture of the area with a yardstick or something in the shot so we can have some point of reference.
2. There will be two competition categories: technical high jump and artistic high jump. Technical high jump is just on how high you went. Artistic gets points for a mix of height and creativeness of the jump (where you are when you jump, silly expressions on your face, silly paw movement, etc).
3. No photoshopping except cropping and basic cleanup.

Well, I am hopeless at Photoshop, so #3 is no problem.

I am entering the artistic high jump category with my photo of jumping at the storm door going out onto my deck. I can jump pretty high, but my folks have not actually measured how high it is. But I think my artistry is shown by the way I am seeming to levitate next to the door, as shown here. And I certainly have a silly expression with my ears back.

Thanks Cats in Maryland for hosting the High Jump!
