I got Pete a new scratching post yesterday, which has a platform on the top. It’s higher than his other ones and he decided to see if he could launch himself from it to the top of the Ikea CD towers which are next to the scratching post.
Massive, huge, humongous, hilarious fail. His leap took him about 2/3 of the way up, and he was clinging to and scrabbling up the tower with all four feet, for what seemed like forever until he realised he wasn’t going to make it and jumped to the ground in a futile attempt to save his feline dignity. Then he came to me for comfort and reassurance, like a toddler who’s just fallen over.
