Cookie got herself up on the cabinet by stepping up onto a footstool under the table, up onto one of the chairs, then to another that has a box of linens on the seat, then up on to the table, then to the cabinet. She’s been doing that for years, not just since she’s been a little weaker with renal failure. She eats there, as we know, and it’s her preferred water bowl, and if she’s not at my desk with me she also likes to nap there in case I come into the kitchen to do something interesting.
But her big little brothers and sister are concerned because she’s been a little unsteady lately and she might lose her balance and fall off. The Fantastic Four have all surrounded her, keeping her safely in place, Jelly Bean to the west, Mr. Sunshine north, Giuseppe holding the east and Mewsette guarding south.
Big soft, sturdy black kitties make great bumper pads for little older tortoiseshell kitties, while preserving their dignity.
