Chris Remembers His Youth


I stopped working three of my four jobs before moving to our new home but I feel like I now have less time than ever. This post, for example, probably should have been written two weeks ago.

I don’t remember what prompted me to pick up Chris and put him on my shoulders like I did when he was young. Perhaps he “asked” me to pick him up by clawing at my leg. However it happened, he ended up on my shoulders just before I walked from the kitchen to the dining room. Along the way, I passed the China Cabinet. If anyone has been reading this blog long enough to have seen the post named Chris’s Springboard could probably guess what happened next.

Chris used me as a springboard and jumped to the top of the China Cabinet.

I was surprised Chris was able to get up there given his age and weight but he seemed to manage just fine. I’m not sure then why I have to pick him up when he wants to get on my lap.

Since it is “kitty see kitty do” in our house Frankie also had to get on my shoulders and then up onto the China cabinet.

Next up was Floki. He got on my shoulders but was too scared to make the leap onto the cabinet. He does have a reputation for being a bit of a scaredy cat and this did not help it.

Chris has slowed down these last couple of years but it is good to know he still has some of that youthful spirit in him.

      I had a weekend job that I had to quit. I did lawn care one day a week that I stopped temperarally. I had an online rating gig that ended just before I left and I am still doing social media and other work.

    Fortunately (considering his size!) Ted doesn’t have any interest in tops of counters, cabinets or humans (as in on our shoulders). I know most cats love heights though – they can see so much from up there. I think the back of the couch is as high as Ted has been! HAHAHA

    Hugs, Pam

    You have to pick up Chris to put him on your lap, as you are his servant. DUH, cute photos of the kitties enjoying the view from above. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer and Kizmet

    That is such fun. Dad is thinking of putting up another cat walk up along the walls but then thinks about how we are older and may fall. I think cats know how to handle things better than we do
