'Feline Baumgartner'

On Monday 14th October 2012, a man from Austria took a helium filled balloon up to a height of 128,000ft or 24 miles up into the earth's atmosphere. The door of the capsule opened, he stepped out, saluted to the world that stretched out before him and 'bunny hopped' off the platform *gulps*. His name is Felix Baumgartner, a guy who broke two records and pushed the boundaries of man. Any further up and I think he would have floated away, next stop, the International Space Station :)

So in recognition of this amazing feat here's my tribute to him.........

'Feline Baumgartner'

Boldly going where no cat has gone before. He was obviously feeling 'claws-trophobic' in the capsule but let's hope he doesn't 'paws' too long before jumping and that he doesn't reach 'hy-purrrr' space on the way down so he can live to tell the 'tail' *blows trombone and goes for a lie-down*

Well done Feline (and Felix) :)
