Chris has always had a need to not only get inside drawers but get behind them. I cannot count how many times I had to remove a drawer because Chris has managed to get himself behind it. A recent post, Happiness is a Dresser Drawer, is a good example of this.
The problem is caused partly by my carelessness (because I am usually, but not always, the one who opens a drawer and forgets to close it) but Chris deserves some credit too for being so incredibly flexible. I don’t know how he squeezes himself through some of the spaces he gets into.
This morning I was in the kitchen using the juicer I got for Christmas. I opened the bottom drawer then walked away briefly. When I returned, I saw that Puck was very interested in the drawer. I knew this could only mean that Chris was behind it but how could he have gotten back there with all the stuff in the drawer?
I put my hand in the drawer to confirm he was there and I felt either Chris or a very large rat. I got my camera and stuck it inside and blindly took a picture that came out surprising well.
Instead of taking the drawer out I enticed him with kitty treats. “Who wants kitty treats? Chris? You want kitty treats?”
That worked. Soon I saw a paw stick out into the drawer.
I took some stuff out to make it easier for him and then came his head.
And then the rest of him.
