It’s Thursday, but the weekend feels impossibly far off. Still, that sense of eternity is nothing compared to the yawning chasm between two desks over which a 7-month-old cat named Rosco attempted to jump.

Unlike some cats, which charge headlong into the breach, Rosco takes his sweet time preparing for a flying leap. That caution pays off enormously—in heartless laughter from you, the viewer.

It’s only fitting that a cat’s reach exceed his grasp—these creatures are smug enough as it is.
