Misjudged Distance

When racing around the yard at top speeds, never forget about the need for braking and the possibility of misjudged distance.

Typhoons are closer than they appear - misjudged distance

Typhoon quietly snuffed the grass on the hunt for hidden morsels (e.g., rabbit pellets, grub, other tasty treats). Roscoe ran zoomies at top speed in widening circles. Unfortunately, Roscoe suffered from a misjudged distance needed to brake. And Hu-Dad snapped the photo. On the bright side, the only repercussion was a Little Prince in hot pursuit of his brother, which is probably what Roscoe wanted in the first place.
