These last few days have been cool and we have been leaving the window open on the door near the bathroom while Rose gets ready for work. We put a stool or chairs there so the cats can look outside and they love it.
After the cats got bored with the window Saturday morning, Rose moved the stool away. I was in the other room so I didn’t see what happened next but I heard Rose scream, “Come quick! Chris jumped through the window!” When I came, I saw the window open with no screen in it. Rose told me he jumped from the ground and through the window. He popped the screen out like it wasn’t even there (thanks to the weight he has put on lately) and landed, seemingly uninjured, on the stairs below.
I wish I was videoing him when that happened but I missed it. I also didn’t have my camera with me when I came running but this is where the screen landed.
Now we are going to have to keep the windows closed, or open only slightly, because of one bad apple, or in this case, one bad cat.
After thinking about it, this may not be his most daring escape but I don’t feel like changing the title. I think that happened while he was still young. You can read that story here.
Uhoh…….well, so much for fresh air! We won’t be opening any windows here but not because Sam might escape – because this morning it’s TWENTY EIGHT DEGREES!!!!
That’s cold. That is also why I moved to Florida.
mom bought inserts to keep certain “hefty” cats from sleeping on our windowsills after Tommy fell out one night. though certainly not the same thing as intentional escapes….good grief 🙂
Maybe I should install prison bars. 🙂
Poor Chris. Bungee jumping without a cord. I’m glad he’s okay my friend. XOXO – Bacon
Thanks Bacon. Me too.
Our window screens are really securely fastened – my human hired a handyman to do that. But then, none of us girls are as big and strong as Chris is! Nor are we quite as excited about the outdoors as he is.
We had a girl, Abbey, that once clawed a hole in the patio screen and slip out at night. She showed up the next morning crying to come in.
OMC Wigh fwu da scween. Who wulda thunk it. MOL Now mommy be fankful we have allergies and she dusn’t open da windows. Our scweens wuld purrobably pop out on their own. MOL Glad all is well and Chris is safely back inside.
Dezi and Lexi
Thank you. Too bad about your allergies.
That Chris is one cat with a mission!! Do you know they make screens that will NOT push out like that? (they are designed specifically for pets), maybe those would be helpful? catchatwithcarenandcody
Where do you find screens like that?
Maybe you can somehow fasten the screen down so Chris can’t knock it out??
That is an option. I will have to look into it.
That Chris is something else 🙂
That’s one word to describe him. 🙂
Reblogged this on Bad Cat Chris and commented:
Chris’s increased age and weight have slowed him down a bit so posts about his “badness” are not as frequent as they used to be. For Throwback Thursday I’d like to share this one from late 2015 that shows him in all his badness, even at six and a half years old.
