Why, you can easily do it in your living room! Here's how:
1. Find suitable cat (no Manx's need apply).
2. Attach light line to cat's tail, using a rolling hitch, Prussic hitch or Icicle hitch.
3.Whirl cat about your head
until it reaches escape velocity.
4. Release light line -- cat will sail just fine.
Sorry, I can't help with your actual question...
