Rescue Me - Or Maybe Not

Yesterday I was getting ready for work when I heard our Maximum Leader crying out in her "I fell asleep in the closet and you didn't notice me and closed the door and that was OK, but now I want out and I'm trapped" meow. Expecting to find her behind one of our doors I searched until I found her on top of our stackable washer-dryer unit, looking down and crying.

It was all a false alarm. She could get down easily, but she wanted me to come and resuce her or at least notice where she was. I told her she could get down by herself. Typically when these things happen and I try to rescue her, she moves away from me so I can't reach her and makes me get a taller ladder. I don't think cats like to be picked up by someone under them. It must be more comfortable to be picked up from above.




Be sure to visit this week's Friday Ark and Carnival of the Cats.

None of the cats will make rescue noises when they're on top of the bookshelves.

Edloe at 18.5 pounds (she topped off at 23.5) was still able to leap up to the fence. She crash-landed on the patio table the first time, didn't like it, so she'd launch and sit up there and then yell like a siren for someone to get her back down when she'd had her fun...

Five minutes later... *clang* Edloe back up on the fence.
