Daily Photo Reprise: Don’t Look Up, 2012

two black cats on shelf
Don’t look up, the ceiling cats are waiting.

Have the basement cats become confused? Do they think they are ceiling cats?

Mewsette and Jelly Bean are on the shelf above the landing that at one time held houseplants, but the time I found Mewsette stretched out up there with a big spider plant teetering at the edge, I hurriedly got my step stool, grabbed the plant and took the others down. I have always been concerned about more terrestrial dangers to them, and after living in a household of cats who gracefully grew very old I had forgotten about cats who explored up, and up, and up!

Neither Giuseppe nor Mr. Sunshine ever attempt this leap. That’s okay. I know all four could carefully fit on the shelf, and it was meant to hold some fairly heavy plants in clay pots with soil, but I’d rather not risk it—it’s eight feet above ground!
