Chris is Still Chris


I got out of the shower yesterday and saw Chris on the floor waiting for me. As I dried myself Chris jumped on the toilet and then on the sink. He looked like he wanted to jump on my shoulders, just like the old days, so I put my towel over my shoulders and let him.

There is something else Chris did in the old days. He would use me as a springboard to get to a higher place. That thought didn’t occur to me until two seconds after he jumped on my shoulders and then jumped up to the top of the linen closet.

By then Floki was in the bathroom. Upon seeing where Chris was he jumped on the sink and started crying at me.

I let him up on my shoulders too.

I thought he would jump up there with Chris but I think he was afraid to try. He stood on his hind legs and had a short conversation with Chris but decided not to join him.

That left me with the problem of getting Chris down. When he was young he could jump down but now he is old and heavy so I didn’t want to risk him getting hurt.

I finished getting dressed and went downstairs and got the stepladder. I then pulled Chris off the shelf, which he was not happy about.

I am glad Chris still has some of that adventurous spirit in him, despite his age and weight. It gives me hope for my future.

    Roary is similar to Chris, just be glad that he doesn’t jump OVER the shower stall like Roary does…..Roary has jumped on my husband TWICE when he was showering….BTW Roary LOVES water.

    A weight of nineteen pounds doesn’t seem to hinder Cooper Murphy, but maybe because he is still a young cat. You are a good dad. If one of ours was up there, our attitude would be, you got up there, now figure out how to get down!
