JAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAJAJAJAJAAAAAAAAAAJAJAJAJAJAAAAAAAAAAAAAA *snort* *snort* My cat used to do the same while asking for food, until one day i was carrying some big boxes downstairs and i did ot see her... Now, whenever i am walking downstairs she get the freak away
Though the cat was at the tope rather than bottom of the stair, and at the bottom was a normally ill-tempered ginormous mix of Bouvier des Flandres and Labrador 10 times the cat's size... whining for an human to go and pick up the cat at the top of the stairs because the dog was scared shitless of that cat.
Then again, "chasing neighboring dogs 10 times her size off the property and showing them who's boss" kind of -was- that cat's hobby.
ಠ_ಠ Flying cat in 3...2...1...MeOWWW!!!! (I kick cats that do that, family pet or not, I do not recognize this so called meow of "you shall not pass." Becides them doing that is simply them asking for that end result to me.)
