Meowy Monday: Cat photo of the week
First I wanted to show pics of Vitfluff today, but I felt it was too sad a way to start a week. So instead I'm showing two pics of Snuttis -- which means that she's been featured in three of four Meowy Mondays. Hope the others don't get too jealous.
Many years ago, the local power company "dug down" the the overhead power lines, replacing them with cables. At the time, many wondered why the phone company didn't seize the opportunity to switch from phone lines in the air to protected underground cables. Our cats were very thankful they didn't as they love the phone and electricty poles, losing the wooden electricity poles, at least they still had two phone poles to use as scratching posts and to climb up. In fact, a few of our cats have actually climbed all the way up!
This was Snuttis' first try at climbin the phone pole. She got to about my eye height before stopping. (Not scared, just bored, she tells me to make clear to you.) Julle, Jinja and Jisse were also around, both showing the kittens how it's done and how much better they, the big cats, are at climbing.
