An Imperfect Spot

As great a napper as Dave is, he does not have the ability to defy physics. Sometimes, a napping location is so inflexible that Dave cannot mold it to his exact liking, as he does when he makes biscuits

But even in these instances, Dave makes the best of his situation. That is because Dave is a big believer that the only thing worse than failure is not trying. And here, no failure occurred.

Blending In

Jack, a much quieter cat than his colleague Dave, is also a much more passive observer than Dave. When Dave might be launching himself, rocket-like, towards an unknown subject, Jack is more likely to stay behind and watch the proceedings. 

Sometimes, he will camouflage himself. For example, you can see here that Jack is pretending to be a shoe.

Nap Duels, Volume IV

Oftentimes, when Dave and Jack take part in a nap duel, they will perform the same napping strategy, such as The Conch. But other times, it is more of a freestyle competition. Below is one of those times. Each cat performs whatever strategy he wishes, and may the best cat take the best nap.

While he is generally open to all new experiences, Dave maintains an ability to be impatient. Certain happenings will put him in an ornery mood. One way to catch Dave in such a mood is to wake him up from a nap. Here you can see that Dave is perturbed by one such occurrence.

Nap Duels, Volume III

 Here you can see Dave and Jack engaging in another of their nap duels. In this iteration, they are both performing The Conch strategy famously developed by Dave in his younger days.

A Superb Hiding Spot

Jack likes to keep to himself most of the time. In comparison, one of Dave's talents is getting all up in peoples' business on a frequent basis. Here you can see Jack hiding under a stack of books, board games and a ball glove, though not particularly well. 

It is also unclear why Jack so often sits facing the corner of the room, but this is none of your concern.

Face Off

Generally speaking, few conflicts occur inside Dave's home. This has not prevented him from remaining alert at all times, or from developing a sophisticated system of defense readiness. It also has not prevented Dave and Jack from fighting with each other from time to time. 

Below you can see Dave and Jack engaged in a struggle for supremacy of the center of the rug.

Jack's Excursion

Jack doesn't get as much credit for his investigatory skills as Dave does, but he has them nonetheless. When the back porch was recently opened up to Dave's wanderings, it was also opened up to Jack. While Dave approached the scene with 100% curiosity, Jack approached with 80% curiosity and 20% concern. He is sometimes the more practical cat.

A New Frontier

Dave, ever the investigator, had a whole new world opened up to him today: the back porch. After only occasional dashes out the door onto the enclosed porch, Dave found himself allowed to roam freely today. Another door prevented him from venturing further, but Dave was grateful for the chance to thoroughly investigate this border zone. 

The outside of this particular home remains a great unknown to Dave, but he has now been to the brink, and should he ever find himself out there, he feels prepared to face whatever he might face. This is the true spirit of RocketDave.

Below you can see an image of one of Dave's recent bouts of obliviousness. For a cat that is so suspicious of potential threats, this is quite a vulnerable position.
