If cats had wings, I think they would fly to heaven and sit on the moon.
Sometimes I think my cats think they can actually fly. Maybe that's why they like birds so much. Have you ever seen a cat jump and fly on trees only to get stuck. They seem to love high places for some reason. When they get in a wild mood, they run and leap with no thought of the ground. Then they get in all sorts of trouble getting stuck atop something, whether it be a shelf or on top of a roof!
If I must deal with dust, let it be star dust where I can dream of growing wings and sitting on the moon!
