Some cats are very agile and able to reach quite high and unexpected places. One of my most memorable cats...well, they have really all been memorable...a siamese cat named Pyewaquet, was able to reach the top of the refrigerator with little effort.
Well, persian cats are not like that. Perhaps it is their shorter legs, or maybe their more docile dispositions but aerial acrobatics are not something they excel at and really don't even attempt much.
But Miss Twiggley does have her moments of daring as you can see below in the guest bathroom. She can easily reach counter height in one leap, the mantle in the front room with a little cheating from a side table and the room divider between the front room and the dining room. And of course any table set with my best crystal and china prior to a dinner party.
So, I was a little surprised when I went into my bedroom and saw her peeking around the corner, perched on the top of the step ladder I had been using to change some light bulbs.
Actually, she really didn't leap up to the top, but climbed the steps...once there I don't know if she really knew what to do. But I have a feeling she was very proud... and probably saying to herself, "now how do I get down!".
Thank you for visiting.
