It's About Time!

Well flambe me in liquid sunshine and call me Crepes Suzette!  Look what appeared in the living room!  That's right, someone finally got off his butt and built me a perch.  Of course, it's taken me a few days to master the damn steps, since I'm old and you know what they say about teaching an old dog...  oh, forget it.



     Anyway, dad actually built what he calls a prototype, whatever the hell that means, and he said he'd give me some time to figure it out.  Mom's been working oh so patiently with me, and the other day I just started getting myself up it.  Going down took a little longer, but I think I've got that figured out now as well.

    It may take a while to get used to it, but I've already started getting comfortable, curling up in the sun spot that  warms the carpeted top platform nicely.  Dad might have to make wider steps, since I seem to have a slight problem getting both sets of paws on each one, but we'll see how it goes.
A few days later


      From the looks of things I'd say I have it figured out.

Hooray for your dad! The steps do look a bit skimpy, but I love the design - it's very sleek and modern. Older kitties benefit by having intermediate steps/platforms as climbing aids. You look lovely in the last shot, basking in the sun puddle!

Well, that sure is a lovely platform. We agree though, a bit wider steps and maybe a bit bigger platform, so you can sprawl out a bit more. YOu never know when the mood will strike to roll over to get more sun on the tummy, and you need plenty of room to do that.

We wondered if each step was bigger you could sit and have a rest on it in between climbing up.
