Not a question, an answer!
I pointed out the Furball blog entry to Chaz Brenchley (fine writer and proud possession of two cats) - he replies:
Of course Furball can climb mirrors, what's all the fuss about? He and his reflection just grab on together, and they act as counterweights for each other, on either side of the plane. Equal and opposite forces: they can't fall. D'you think this is why cats are always so concerned with their image? In case the necessity arises, that they have to lean on 'em?
So now we know!
