In the music room / office, a mountain of my music books have remained stacked in boxes against the wall next to some corner bookcases. They are the perfect launching pad to a highly desirable perch - from this height the cats can gaze out the window to the woods behind our house.
This perch has one major drawback. There is a large empty space at the corner where the book cases meet. To a cat this is both an inviting challenge and a deep, dark chasm. To Stormie-too, this was a temptation too hard to resist.
From the kitchen during dinner, we saw our kitty make her usual leap to the top. But rather than sitting down to gaze at the woodland creatures, she drifted ever so casually towards the black hole. Before we knew it, we heard a "meowEeeeeeeeeeeeee---- thunk!"
We pounded on the wall, got a bewildered"mrrreow!" and were relieved that Stormie was okay. Eric, our man of amazing wit and stunning resourcefulness, got out his trusty power drill, took apart the book shelves and saved the day!
Guess what?!? It took less than a minute and a half to upload all 5 photos! In the old days, this same project took me all evening. I LOVE you, High Speed Internet! Sigh. :)
