Sometimes things just fall into place.
This cartoon came courtesy of my cat, Gillespie. She’s a full-figured feline who, like most of her species, likes to find as high a place as she can to rest and survey her domain.
One day, snoozing on top of a bookcase, her girth and gravity apparently teamed up on her, and she awkwardly slid off butt first. But, being a cat, she righted herself midair, landed on all fours and walked away smugly with an air of purpose.
All of which reminded me of the old “cats always land on their feet,” which, combined with the idiom “land on your feet,” led to this poor little kitty’s current situation.
