First of all, Pushkin has rabbit feet.
Here is the sleepy kitty laying down to rest on the top of the cable box.
He has a disconcerting habit of deciding that it's time to go right now and jettisoning himself from the cable box. Physicists among you will realize that oftentimes this results in the cable box itself being flung to the floor. Inefficient kinetic little kitty.
In any case, my dad invented a cable box batten. Or a cat-launch collateral damage prophylactic. In other words, he tied the cable box to the receiver below it. So far the cat hasn't managed to knock it over.
These pictures both come from my sister Jean. Here are more.
