Jimmy's New Trick

Look who has learned how to get up on the banister.  This does NOT exactly thrill me but Jimmy is very pleased with himself and trills, sings and coos to let me know he has made the leap.  

Wow, I made it :-)

Thankfully Casper has no interest in the banister and rarely jumps up there.

On the move

However Ben is an expert banister boy and regularly snoozes on it.

Pausing to savour his accomplishment

Archie is a daredevil of the first order and races at full speed from one end to the other giving me heart failure.

Jimmy at the deep end

And now Jimmy has joined their ranks.

At least Kip still has all fours on the ground!!!

I'm adorable non?

Good golly how could I scold him with a face like that?!?!

What fun for them, but definitely worrisome for you! But cats are pretty sure-footed.

Rumblemum is saying she's glad we don't have stairs for this very reason.

We're saying you are COOL!

Sparkle said...

We had a balance beam like that at our old house - it was fun! When Binga found out she got a treat for walking on it, she did it ALL the time!

Jumping Catfish...now that is a 'true catwalk'!! Look at my agile mancats showing off their great balance.
This reminded mom of my human uncle's house panther, Ursula, RIP. Uncle had a loft over his dining area. Ursula's favorite pass time was to sit on the rail during dinner. She never jumped to the table but it did make for some interesting dinner conversation. MOL
Hugs Madi your BFFF

Oh Jimmy do hang on there. You are giving your Mom gray hairs. Glad Kip is staying on the ground. These darn kitties just like to worry us. Have a great day.

You could use one of those photos for the balance beam competition in the Cat-O-Lympics!

Rene said...

Yikes! That's a daring adventure.

Brian said...

That is some very impressive balancing fur sure!

Forever Foster said...

Wow! We think you are a very talented acrocat. We don't walk on our bannisters, but we like to lean out through the bars and freak our mum out.

stay safe boys..... mom says this is why when she had our grandpa put in the wall at the top of the stairs the top of it had to be several inches wide.....like cat walk wide. :)

Angie said...

Since our huge scratch post thingy died after the grandchildren thought it was a brillliant castle, our many felines have been using the banisters and hand rail ....as you can imagine there is not a lot left ...dont you just love them lol

LP said...

Oh My Gosh! That kind of activity would definitely give LP heart failure...especailly if any of your boys are as clutzy as Levon... It doesn't appear that they are which is a relief! Still , Ben sleeping on the banister?! GAH!!

the critters in The Cottage xo

PS We don't think you should scold the adorable one!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Wow, I'd freak out too, but he sure looks pleased with himself! Handsome silly boy!

ABBY said...

We hope you guys will be entering the Balance Beam competition in the Cat-O-Lympics!

Oui Oui said...

Oui, Kip you are adorable! Oui Oui has taught Mica Moo to banister surf too. See what else Miss Oui walks on at our blog today. The first time she did it, the mom was amazed and laughed until she cried.

Maggie @ Shelter Cats said...

Yes, you certainly are.
But please be careful and don't scare your peeps!
