Someone’s in Trouble

black cat hanging on screen
Jelly Bean is in trouble.

Looks like someone is hanging on the window screen and can’t figure out how to get down. If you look closely at his toes, he’s trying to get a grip on the edge of the screen!

Very often mourning doves will perch on the opened casement windows and coo coo coo, and a good kitty can only be good for so long. But they forget there is a screen in the way, and also that they can’t fly.

There have been two cats hanging on one screen at a time, and sometimes three cats, two on one screen and one on another. Buddy the squirrel has to be glad for good, sturdy window screens.

No, I really don’t care for it when they do this, but there’s not much I can do…as long as the screens hold, which they have for nearly 20 years. I think after this season I’ll have to have them replaced for little rips and tears.

  • awwww Jelly Belly…you are trying so hard!!! Concatulations for the attempt!!! My Mom told me they put in heavy screen material on all the sliders and window screens their ‘before me’ cats could get to…so now they don’t worry when I am at a screen…they are very strong…and of course Miss B, you know I am too scared to even attempt to climb one…maybe one day…

    • Savannah, you don’t need to climb screens. I wish these kitties wouldn’t!
