Smooth Criminals

While I was getting ready this morning I heard Jason yell, “Babe, come here!!!!”

So I scurried down the hall and was greeted by this ridiculous sight:

Kitties Up High


The little one has perfected the innocent, “What, Mom?” look, don’t you think?

Kitties Up High

After laughing hysterically and snapping an obscene number of photos we started to get a little concerned about how they would get down – so Jason grabbed a stepladder and tried to perform a rescue, à la firefighters rescuing a kitten from a tree:

Kitties Up High

Needless to say, they weren’t having it.  Those kitties had conquered that mountain and they were going to savor their victory, by golly.

By the way, we did eventually get a glimpse of how they managed to get up there in the first place:

Kitties Up High

Brute strength and a whole bunch of claws.

And I thought I was going to have my hands full with a new baby!!  Sigh.

P.S.  Our spare bedroom doesn’t always look like that – it’s just been a disaster zone of stuff to be donated/thrown out/sold since we cleared out the nursery a few weeks ago.  Apparently “clearing out” in my book is synonymous with “hide in another room.”  Baby steps, people.

    This is too funny! You have made my day. The picture of the cat climbing the “mountain” may be my favorite, along with your commentary. Thanks for letting me share your morning, Liz!

  2. They are beautiful cats! My siamese, Charlie (RIP) always had to climb up on whatever was the highest vantage point. When we moved, that included the mattresses and boxes stacked up high. Our house has a planter shelf that starts in the kitchen above the cabinets and runs all the way around the family room and dining nook. Yep, he’d get up there and run around too. =)

  3. Oh my! This is a riot! I can’t believe they could scale the side like that!

    Aw, your cats are beautiful. I have a cat that is a monkey as well. It’s not uncommon for me to find her sitting on top of a DOOR.

    Liz! Are these ragdolls? They are STUNNING! We used to have two that looked very similar and loved them. Such playful and sweet kittens.

      Yes!! And thanks, we think they’re pretty cute. :) They are SUCH a fun breed, we have been so happy having them as part of our family!

    Our cat did the same thing to our mattress when we were moving in. I think it’s something that all cats must attempt at least once in their lives.
