Friday Cat Blogging VIII

When the Hooligans were about six months old, I came home from work to the sound of Pippin meowing in distress. There he was, on top of the kitchen cupboards, unable to get down. Wretch that I am, I grabbed the camera and got a picture of it before I helped him. Being short, I stayed on the floor and put a chair on the counter and encouraged him to jump down to it. Lots of soft voice and offering food.

I don't know how long he had been trapped up there, but the first thing he did when he got down was make a bee line for the cat box. I had my landlady's son go up on a ladder and check the next time he was over, and Pippin hadn't left any surprises up there.

Awwwwwwww Pippin is adorable! Congratulations on coming up with such a great, creative solution to get him down!

My daughter's cat (while she was in college) lived here with us for a while. One night I missed him, and I went out calling him, but he didn't show. Later I heard pitiful crying from the top of a tree.I left the lights on all night for him, but he didn't show. The next morning, I saw that he was in the top of a tree that had to be at least 40' tall. He didn't come down for 2 whole days and nights! I felt so sorry for him. The next 3-4 days, he slept constantly.

I have three cats and they sure can get themselves into some messes, can't they.

I'm not much of a cat person, but I couldn't have left the little bugger up there for two days?

I would have had to call the fire department and make a donation.

Are you sure he didn't fall out of the tree?

LOL....I don't know which is worse,sitting up there for two days being hungry with sleep deprivation, or having to go to the litter box like Pippin?

Can't you just see Pippin up there doing Boo's little dance?
