That’s like a meme absorbing a meme. Kyle says: Appears to me that neither is the photographer afraid of heights! canoehead says: Could someone nail carpet on that railing so he can hold on? One false move and we’ll have a cat pancake. ifolkinrock says: Super Elevated Monorail Cat! Sensi says: That cat can’t looked down and think “Oh no! I better not get up there because if I fall it’s a 40 story drop!” The cats owner needs to be shot. turtlegirl784 says: Anybody who thinks this is funny or cool should look up high rise syndrome. Or maybe I’ll do it for them. Here: http://www.aspca.org/pet-care/cat-care/high-rise-syndrome.aspx Cats like high places, but you don’t usually find them at the very top of 40+ ft trees. Tree bark provides a much better grip than concrete or metal, and there generally isn’t much in a tree that can startle the cat and make it jump/bolt. Also, in a tree there are a lot of branches to grab on the way down so the cat doesn’t hit the ground.
