Look What I Can Do!

May 1, 2013

Zoey has a new trick. She’s figured out how to jump.

That may not seem like a big deal. After all, she’s a cat. And she’s two and a half years old. She should know how to jump, right?

Well, she’s not always been good at jumping. As I’ve said … err … written before, Zoey is not the most coordinated of kitties and she has never been much of a jumper. But because I once accidentally set up a little stairway to give her access to my mantle, she became obsessed with being able to return to the vantage point. Not so much because she likes to stand on the mantle, but because she likes to look out the little windows on either side of it.

I have no idea how she did it, but she finally made the leap. A leap only Gus — my biggest cat — has ever been able to make.

To give you an idea of just how big a leap this is to make, I had Cooper stand on the ledge that Zoey must stand on to make the jump.

Now, every day … every single day, Zoey jumps to the mantle and spends as much time as she can looking at the world outside.

    Pretty darn proud of herself, I’d say….it’s just like when a baby starts walking…she’ll be jumping up on all kinds of things, I suspect! You’re baby is growing up!
