As a cat owner, I have seen that look before. Has the bleeding stopped on your left hand yet?

Haven't installed the brakes yet, going to try to get them on this weekend, but the cat comes to a dead stop 20 hours out of the day.

FWIW, our cat had TERRIBLE brakes. he was constantly sliding into walls and overshooting turns because he couldn't slow down enough. Unbelievable acceleration coming off the line, almost as if he had a steam catapult, but stopping was another story.

Lol ^^^^^

Spike has been known to do the Scooby Doo burn outs on the wood floor chasing after a treat only to wrap himself around a chair leg or corner when he over shoots it. Here's what he does now most of the time, he's a senior so we accept it.

Yeah he he works hard at it ! Looking forward to the new brakes, I've heard good things, hopefully these Spykes are a little more aggressive.
