This was supposed to be last week’s post but I just realized I accidently published it as a page instead of a post. Oops.
I used to write about How Chris would manage to get up into almost impossible locations in our house (see here and here and here). Now he is more than ten years old and a few pounds heavier than he used to be. He also seems to have developed a bit of arthritis. Lately, I have to help him onto my lap sometimes.
Chris may be somewhat grounded but Frankie hasn’t lost a step. He is now going places that only Chris would have gone before.
Here he is on top of our cabinet. The height of the jump isn’t as impressive as the accuracy needed since it is a very narrow space and it seems like it would be easy to bang your head on the ceiling.
Who else has a cat that reaches for the sky?
oooh a new nasa mission? how interesting ;O)
those two photos are absolutely PRECIOUS!!! Thankfully that is one thing that Cody doesn’t do (other than on his cat tree)
Chris has always been a high climber and now it’s Frankie’s turn. it seems there’s always somebody in the house that’s up in the cabinets.
Wow! That first photo is an absolutely beautiful photo of Chris! Congratulations on capturing that moment!
Thanks. I like it too.
By the way, that’s Frankie.
Oops! When I wrote that it seemed off somehow. Of course it is Frankie.
Frankie! How’d you get up there???
With much skill. 🙂
That was an impressive Olympic style leap!
He won the gold in the Tight Space Leap.
Cute cat! I have two that do the same, only have to open a cupboard anywhere it the house and one of them will jump straight in.
It is hard to resist for some cats. 🙂
Sadly, our cabinets are flush with the ceiling. 😦
That makes things more difficult. 🙂
Timmy used to leap onto the edge of my bedroom door when he was about a year old. The first time I turned around and saw him I about had a heart attack. In a couple months I think he got too big to do it anymore but it sure was fun
Floki did the same thing on our bathroom door.
Such cute cats. They look like they have fun exploring.
They are little adventurers.

The weight is the key. Frankie is 8 but skinny. Chris is 10 and is now 19 pounds.
Chris must be very proud of his protege.
He is a good teacher.
