Reaching New Heights .

LP, " I was starting to think it was a little odd that the kittenbabies seemed to be so " ground ridden ". Meaning , they seemed to prefer being on the floor at all times rather than jumping way up high onto things. Any things. Cats in general are climbers as you all well know but devon rexes are especially known to have a reputation as athletic cats  known to like great heights. Alot . Esme was jumping onto door frames and room dividers at the tender age of four months and Lewis' favourite hangout at a mere three months was the top of the fridge where he had his "throne" and where he took his long afternoon naps . So why hadn't the kittenbabies ever reached these heights I wondered . They seemed to prefer the ground . To be honest , I was a bit relieved . The kitten babies wreak havoc as it is . . . I couldn't imagine them climbing to get to their desired object(s) of fascination . And then , last week quite suddenly it would seem , the kittenbabies started reaching new heights . Gulp. Here are a few pics I managed to capture for you .

LP, " First they discovered the cabinet in the kitchen which has a nice little ledge on other side of it each perfect for sitting and observing one's surroundings. Levon is looking up ."

LP, " . . . to the fridge where he now sits ."

LP, " And from there ,  up to the highest cabinet in the kitchen ; which was once one of Lewis' favourite haunts :) "

LP, " Malou is the daredevil of the two. She finds the adventures and Levon is a more than willing partner in crime . Here she is on the stove fan ."

Malou , " Where do you think I am now ? "

Malou , " On a beam in the entranceway . Levon was too chicken to follow me up here ! "

LP , " Later I found Malou sound asleep on top of the stove fan . I guess all that climbing made her dog-weary . . .  or . . .  cat-weary ! :)  What are your favourite "high spots " ?  "

Have a great day!
See you soon.

  1. We don't have any special high places inside but we do rather like getting up on our roof and spying on our neighbours!!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  2. I guess what they say is true... be careful of what you wish for.

  3. Oh, nothing will be safe now! Hope you don't have any breakables. LOL.

  4. Wow those are high-wire kitten babies for sure!!! Archie and Casper sometimes jump on top of the doors and all the kitties except Kip love the top of the wardrobe in the sunroom. Kip isn't much of a jumper, he seems to be all gangly limbs still :-)

  5. Malou, I'm going to start calling you Evil CATnevil! WOW! I'm not nearly as daring as you. ...maybe it's because I once fell ::shhhh...very embarrassing:: from the second floor railing down to the first floor. Not one of my finer moments.

    I don't have much of a need for height anymore.

    ....LP, we were CRACKING UP over your comment about giving Gloman 1/2 cup of food if the balloons couldn't lift him. hahahahaha!

  6. Hmmm...maybe I have Devon Rex blood in me as I looove high places too. purrr...meow!

  7. Those are such great pictures. I just love seeing these cats. Their eyes are so wonderful. Looks like they had such a good time learning how to climb up. We get on the refrigerator sometimes and on the roof. Take care.

  8. It almost makes you wonder why all of a sudden they've decided to climb, right? :)

    Happily, Moosey and Sammy aren't big climbers ... window sills, beds and dressers are about as high as they go.

  9. Malou sure is the more daring of the two.

    XO K:)

  10. Wow those two have really grown!! They don't look like babies anymore at all.


Please leave a comment , we love to hear from you :)
