7-8-10 – The Bookworms (Bolitar, to be exact)

Jump to comments

Bolitar is an explorer. If there’s a place to be, he’s been there. It took him a little while to figure out how the big cats were getting on top of the kitchen cabinets, but once he figured it out, he was up there checking things out.

He doesn’t want to miss anything, y’know.

For the record, Jake and Elwood – who have been with us for close to a year – haven’t figured out how to (1) Jump up on the counter, (2) Hop from the counter to the top of the refrigerator and then (3) Jump from the top of the refrigerator to the top of the cabinets. They haven’t even figured out the FIRST part of that three-step process.

They must not be adventurers.


Trying to figure out how to get past Sugarbutt, so he can do more exploring. (He finally tried just walking past Sugarbutt, who has been known to smack kittens who get up in his space. It worked!)


2009: Fighting amongst the shoes.
2008: “You want a piece of ME? Because I will mess you UP.”
2007: No entry.
2006: No entry.
2005: I sure do love these kitties, and MAN am I going to miss them when they’re gone.

  1. You just have to walk past like you are allowed to and like you know what you are doing! Confidence…gets you everywhere! Go Bolitar.

    As for the other two…well in my house, that would be a good thing since my kitties are NOT allowed on the counter, fridge or cabinets. 🙂 Bathroom counters are fine…just no eating/food surfaces! However, my little one gets on the dining table (just cuz he is nosey) and when I tell him to get down, he looks at me (knowing he isn’t allowed up there) and then runs around the perimeter of the table like it is a racetrack so I can’t catch him and set him down! Goofball!

  2. Oh my goodness!! Bolitar is really growing up! Bless his furry cute face! Look at him though – he is adorable!

    I love the way he’s looking Sugarbutt! LOL!! They are both sweeties!

    Take care

  3. None of my current 3 are jumper/explorers, which is actually a good thing, I guess. But Simon loved being up on the cabinets – he spent lots of time up there, and learned to walk around the pottery I kept up there as decorations.

  4. Such pretty eyes our intrepid explorer has. And so brave to attempt to trespass on the mighty Sugs’ territory!

    Speaking of explorers, how’s your escape artist doing these days?

  5. I gave up long ago of trying to keep my two cats off of the counters and such. You are lucky they don’t know how to get up there.
