OH, the Places She'll Go Part Two

As I reported yesterday, Wylla  has figured out how to get up on top the fridge. I'm not sure what her path to the top is, but I now know how she gets down.

 She flies.

The kitchen table is her landing pad.

  2. Love it. We have 4 cats. All young (2.5-4), but only one of them is an avid climber/explorer. He never ceases to amaze us with the places he winds up. Top of the fridge is a favorite.

  6. Awwwww! LOVE the one looking up at her looking down. We have one out of our five like that. We call her The Flying Squirrel. Gotta lay on the floor like that and get some action shots!

  9. I have witnessed my 5yo cat make a ~5 feet leap from a couch arm to the top of a shelf. If is pretty amazing stuff. I'm currently working on putting up cat shelves around my house so he can explore the "treetops" without knocking anything over...

    1. I was just about to do a riff on that song but decided to read through all of the comments first. Great minds and all that. :-)

  11. Yup, tiny kitties fly really well. Clearly, Wylla is taking advantage of her light-as-a-feather status to be a, shall we say, challenging new member of the family. :)

    But seriously, I'm glad to see her feeling so well she's prepared to get into constant mischief. That says that she's very happy and as healthy as she can possibly be with you guys. Yay Wylla!

  13. Kittens are crazy!

    Two years ago, we got a brother/sister pair, Beso and Luna (respectively). We had lived in the house for over a dozen years, and had two cats there previously (Maggie, who had departed by this point, and Eddy, who came in as a kitten in 2004).

    Our basement is unfinished, and you can see the rafters in the ceiling in some spaces. No one ever bothered with them prior to 2011. However, after a few weeks, Luna figured out the right combination of jumps to get up there. She taught her brother, who, while larger, had no trouble.

    One day, we observe Beso, Luna, AND Eddy jump down--they taught the old cat a new trick.

  15. I have a debate going on with my sister about the prounciation of Wylla's name. She says it is Willa and I say it is Weyella. Which is it?

  16. Hmm, time to break out a collar cam?

  17. I actually encourage my cats to get on top of the fridge while I'm cooking in the kitchen. They can still see everything and "snoopervise" but are safely away from the stove and hot pots! :)

  18. I believe I see wings in the picture! Wait, does she have a halo too?? Oh, no, sorry but she is cute....Mary A

  19. I've had two cats (both tuxedos, actually) who liked to hang out on top of the fridge. Charlotte was a real jumper who could get anywhere she pleased. Simon was more of a planner - he really didn't leap so well, but he could figure out how to get up almost anywhere. He loved the top of the kitchen cabinets -- counter to fridge to cabinets.

    And it makes me happy to see Wylla so obviously happy and healthy, thanks to the great care she's getting!

  21. Oh, Wee Winged Wylla...

    I think her leaping muscles are quite strong because she stands at her dinette for a few sessions each day.

  22. Ahh, I seem to recall that Wylla's sister was a bit of a flying monkey when she was in the house. Now that Wylla's feeling better it looks like crazy cataloons runs in the family.

  23. Oh, Wylla! It's a bit nerve-wracking, I'm sure, but the upside of it is she has to be feeling pretty strong and lively to be getting up to that sort of mischief.

    My kittens-getting-places story? The older of my two, Nim, was once found on top of my bedroom door. Yes, *on top of* the door.

  24. Oh, Why-la! I had been reading Willa. No more "Willa Vanilla" on the list of potential nick names, but how about "Cutie Pie Why?"

    ;)
