Here you can see Jack making good use of a kitchen chair. You can't spend all day on the couch, after all.

It is well-known that the average cat does not approach Dave's greatness when it comes to napping, or to investigations. But there is another area of life where Dave surpasses the great majority of other felines - robustness.
This provides Dave with certain advantages. For example, Dave wrestling skills are top-notch. However, Dave's robustness also presents certain disadvantages. Anyone familiar with the ways of cats understands that cats enjoy enclosed spaces. Dave's colleague Jack is known for his fondness of boxes. While Dave is a fearless cat who enjoys the open air, he also enjoys napping in a defined space. Below, you can see that Dave has squeezed himself into a space designed for a less robust cat. And he does so quite successfully.

Dave's legendary napping skills serve him well. His curiosity and aggressiveness allow him to attain napping heights unknown to most cats. But they also sometimes force him into predicaments that he doesn't expect. For example, you can see in the image below that he has ended up in a position that looks quite uncomfortable.
When you take risks like Dave does, you have to be willing to accept some occasional discomfort.

Here you can see LeiLei has made quite a bold choice for a napping location. This is a location that is frequently moved. More importantly, napping here puts LeiLei at risk of having a pair of pants unceremoniously tossed upon her.
But that is a risk that LeiLei is willing to take.

In the photograph below, you can see Jack taking part in a common past time of his and Dave's household - getting up in your business. This activity is a particular favorite of Jack. If he finds himself on the floor level not getting an appropriate amount of attention, he will simply hop up onto the closest available raised area, whether it be a bed, a table, a fridge, or something else.
This makes Jack's presence in the room more obvious to others in the room, especially those of greater height than your average cat.

There are many benefits to being a cat. Dave mentioned one of these benefits in a recent tweet.
One of my favorite parts of being a cat is being better than all the other cats. pic.twitter.com/VVmFDoQ0I5— The Dafe (@DafeTheCat) April 17, 2015
However, there are also downsides. One of those downsides is not having any opposable thumbs. Dave's lack of opposable thumbs creates some issues for him when he attempts to do things like open doors and read the news about international relations on an iPhone. But that doesn't stop him from trying.

Though Dave spends his hours and days indoors, now that he no longer lives on the mean streets of Iowa, he still needs to let loose once in a while. One of his outlets is the designated scratching area on Dave's cat tree. From time to time, Dave will suddenly scamper across the room in order to attack the cat tree and attempt to destroy it.
He can make quite a mess.
