Heights of Adventure

If you've been reading here for a while you will know that until recently, Star has not been a fan of going up high. We got the blue cat tree and put a bed up on the top of the cabinet it leads to and it became Leo's 'boycats only' spot. He was safe there as Star had never, would never, go above the first shelf on the tree.

Then one day she went all the way up and discovered the nice soft beddy up there and she has enjoyed that spot nearly every day for at least a short nap.

Well, now she's surprised us even more by scaling up a mattress that's leaning against a wall on a landing! And let me tell you, you know every time she does it because her claws make the most horrific sounding noises as she climbs to the ceiling to sit on top of this up-ended mattress!

Ha! I made it all the way up! Let's see that barbarian try this!
 
 

I'm queen of the mountain! ..oh, hi.. Yeah, I'm up here, what of it?
 
 

Yeah, so I think I'll just mosey on over to the other end where you can't spy on me.. And there's a little more head room. Just don't let anyone ring the door bell while I sit under the dingy thingy!



Leo has seen her get up there as she's been up more than once now. I've seen him with his front paws up as high as he can reach, but he just can't seem to get his bottom feet off the floor to make it up there. Yet. Any bets on if he'll make it or not? MOL

Hope you all have an adventurous weekend!!

Leo will find a way to get up there otherwise he won't be able to taunt Star!

Nicki and Derry can attest to the fact that mattress-scaling is a terrific adventure. It took Derry a little bit to figure out how to do it, but once he got the hang of it, there was no stopping him. So we bet Leo will make it up too!

Wow, now that Star has discovered she likes heights...there's no stopping her! Leo will be up there too, in no time.

Now Star...Leo...be careful that thing doesn't overbalance. You will be OK, but you will be very surprised! xoxox

Eastside Cats said...

Yeah, I'm betting that Leo will decide that no ladycat can best him, so he'll figure out a way up there somehow.

D Ma said...

i'm quite confident a determined leo will figure it out.

Star knows a good perch when she sees it!

Good job, Star! Enjoy that awesome perch until Leo figures out how to get up there. :)

Maybe Leo has too many toes for mattress scaling? Go Star!!

But darling!!! However do you get DOWN??? I am furry worried about you all up there on your own--should I come rescue you, do you think? Or are you a brave girl who can climb down like it was nuffing at all???? XOXOXOXO

I hate to say it, but I do think the Barbarian will figure it out. I hope he doesn't try while you are already up there!

Marty the Manx said...

We bet he will get up, the thing is will he get back down?

laura brown said...

Wow that's really getting up there! Ummm, just how do you plan to get down?

Hello again Star, I was kind of hoping you'd be down from there, but at least the Barbarian hasn't climbed up!

Mommy says that if she had a kitty up in a high spot like that she would jump every time she walked by if the kitty made any kind of noise. Ktties sure love high places. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
