Let's take a closer look at the anatomy of a RocketDave. Here is the view from above. The paws come together in front to provide the greatest aerodynamicity possible. Dave is aligned perfectly straight. The ears do create some drag, but that's unavoidable for a cat-rocket. On the whole, Dave does a great job preparing for liftoff, considering the tools he has to work with.
Most importantly, being a RocketDave allows Dave to do more than just get ready for liftoff. It is also a very comfortable way to nap. Win-win.
It's lonely out in space, on such a tiii iii iiimeless flight!
