 It appears that Dani may actually be in the "catbird seat".

However, appearances are deceiving.  The sweet little chickadee is in the superior position.  Looking down on someone can be intimidating -- especially if you're the one who's dating Tim.

Dani's size is a disadvantage in this case, as the gravity of the situation becomes evident.  Her Maine Coon butt is going nowhere fast, whereas D. Chick-a-D is as light as a pile of feathers and winged to boot.  A shake of her booty and she's off!

So Dani's best strategy is to stay absolutely still.  However, as 'still waters run deep' she is soon in an awkward predicament.  The litter box is inside and currently inaccessible due to the locked door between here and there.  And while peeing in place seems like a viable option, wet fur is even heavier, and the pooling liquid is potentially slipPURRy.

The snow now seems like the best option, but poor Dani first has to acknowledge that she has lost this battle, as Chicky-D. does her Dee Dance.  Simply too humiliatin'!

Efurrything has gotten too 'out of hand' 
as the next photo will illustrate.

"How come burds get hand-outs whilst I can't even budge an inch before I gets ta eat?" complains Dani.

Perhaps you should budge-it better in the first place, says I.

"I'm gonna hasta get a liddle more cagy." says she.

Well, we can all see how that worked out.

And the moral of the story is:

"A bird in the hand is worth more than a cat in a cage."
