Myst was after me! Or I was after Myst (by this time, I have forgotten). I quickly jumped to the most strategic place in the house - the middle level of the cat stand here. Nobody can paw my back or my tummy from here. This position is pretty much unconquerable.
As you can see, Myst is stymied. As soon as he looks away I will reach up and paw him from my very strategic position here.
