territorial domestic cat observes his kingdom below to ensure that no
neighbouring felines are trespassing on his lands. Reaching high places is a

feeling of security. Hiding is equally important, particularly
when the humans bring in an alien beast to suck at the floor.
The cat’s survival instincts kick in and he retreats to fight another day.
