Jumping up, the kitten caught the treat is not a misplaced modifier because it describes the action of the kitten. Modifiers are words, phrases, or clauses that add a description.

The definition of misplaced modifier in the dictionary is a participle intended to modify a noun but having the wrong grammatical relationship to it as an example having left in the sentence.

Modifiers are words or sentence. They give us a better understanding of a word or sentence. The dangling modifier is not properly connected to the subject of the sentence, which makes it unclear which word it modifies.

Jumping up, the kitten caught the treat.

The third option is correct because the phrase jumping up, indeed does describe the kitten and the sentence makes sense.
