Petey figured out how to get on top of the kitchen cabinets. Stinkerbelle actually doesn’t seem to mind Petey. One day, she was on one side of Petey and walking toward him, and I ran to get the camera – and when I came back into the kitchen, she was on the other side of him. There had been no hissing or growling. Petey’s a smart boy – he probably just cowered away from her, and she decided he was no threat.
It seems to generally be around the age of 4 months (the Pickles turned 4 months on November 2nd) that they start figuring out how the cat door leading to the back yard works and also how the “steps” to the walkway and the top of the cabinets work. Luckily, only the bravest (Joe Pickle and Magoo, in this instance) actually venture out into the back yard, and only the smartest (Joe Pickle and Petey) figure out the kitchen “steps.” I guess I’m saying that Joe is the bravest and the smartest Pickle!
Today’s video is a silly one from a few months ago. Miz Poo and Maxi both needed a visit to the vet, who is literally 5 minutes up the road. The instant we put Maxi in the carrier, she started howling and didn’t stop once on the way to the vet. Miz Poo chimed in occasionally with a “Why, God, whyyyyy?” It made me LOL. The picture’s not great (I shot it with my phone), but the sound is what it’s all about.
I bought this Rubbermaid storage container with the intention of cutting out a “doorway”, putting straw in it, and putting it on the front porch so that the rare nights when Newt decides to stay outside, he’s got a warm and comfy place to hole up. Sugarbutt saw it and decided he kinda liked it. So I bought another one…
