tabby tuesday simon 10302018Ouch, that smarted a bit!  Oh, hello there, thanks for stopping by on Tabby Tuesday, it really does make me smile when you stop by to see me, really.  Lots of things make me happy thought, especially treats and da Bird, these are a few of my favorite things.

Oh, don’t forget, I will be reviewing our canvas print from CanvasChamp.com on Friday and I will be announcing the winner of the free canvas print too.  I’m very excited about it, it’s fun to give away things, as long as it’s not my treats or my da Bird MOL!

Okay, about that leap of faith thing and the ouch that goes along with it.  Of course you know that us kitties like to leap and we’re pretty darn good at it too.  But, as it turns out, sometimes leaping  is not necessarily the right thing to do.  So where did my leap happen???

tabby tuesday simon 2 10302018Yes, as you can tell, the upper loft is wayyyyyyyy up there.  That also means the hardwood floor downstairs is wayyyyyyyy down there.  You don’t have to ask, yes, I really did.  Let’s just say that the Mom and the Dad didn’t find it amusing.  It did kind of smart on all four paws but the Dad said there was nothing smart about it.  Hey, I had to give it a go, but once is probably more than enough.

That’s it for me today, see you all on Friday.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    Simon!! It scares me to just think about that leap. I’m glad that you’re ok. Maybe your parents could put a super thick landing mat down there so you can leap again!!

    Simon your last photo reminds me of a thing the mama did once… her grampy had to release her with a saw… and we can see the evidence till today on the banister :O))))

    Hmm, perhaps a kitty parachute next time? Dad is usually quite sure we felines have a built-in instinct not to do such things, but mom’s always afraid otherwise. I suppose you’ve gone and proven dad wrong, but we’re not going to tell mom.

    Oh my that was a big leap! You didn’t use one of your nine lives I hope?! In the first photo your eyes are such a beautiful emerald green btw 🙂

    It was going to happen, and I am NOT surprised it was you, Simon. Please don’t do that ever ever again. You can stay rambunctious but dial it back a bit with the upper floor. XXXXX

    Simon, that’s a huge leap of faith even for a cat. Leap of faith is hard to do but you did it. Seeing the picture , I thought you got your head caught and you had to trust someone to get it out. Glad it was just about Jumping.

    Oh dear, Simon! Being the Nervous Nelly catmom that I am, I’d take you to the nearest cat chiropractor, since once Chuck jumped badly from a high shelf to the floor. We found a chiropractor for him, and he wsa better afterward. It’s not like human chiropractors, where one has to go back multiple times. Cats getting adjusted stay adjusted!

    I’m glad you didn’t hurt yourself too badly. I also hope you don’t try this again. I know it gave your peeps a scare.

    Have a purrfect Tabby Tuesday. My best to your peeps. ♥

    Simon, that looks like such a high place that you jumped from. We are happy that you are ok. Can’t wait till Friday for the review of the canvas print and the announcement of the winner. Have a great Tabby Tuesday. Thanks for the share.

    OH, Brother Simon, we hope you are OK AND we hope you will NEVER try that again. You are very brave, but maybe next time you need to show us you can be cautious too:)

    Oh, Simon, you crazy boy! We are glad you are OK. At our old house we had a loft area that looked down over our living room. Our late cat Katie used to love to walk along the narrow railing that overlooked. She made me a nervous wreck! But I don’t think she ever jumped and never even fell. Phew!

    Sounds like you must be related to our high diving Percy. We don’t have any stairs or landings but it’s a 10′ ceiling and he loves anything tall, including the top of doors.

    Looking at the first pic, I said it doesn’t look like a leaping cat. Oh my. I bet I would have leaped to if I was younger. I used to leap off the top of the door but that’s not nearly as high. It still gave TW a heart attack.

    Hey Simon, I’s so glad you’re okay. I’s recently learned, we cats aren’t meant to fly. And jumpin’ from high spaces, well, we don’t have wings fur a reason. I’s sure hope you never try that again. Big hugs

    Yikes! That is quite a leap! We do not have any stairs.
    We do have higher places that are not nearly as high as stairs(4ft max).
    WE are not sure what we would do around stairs.
    Glad you are OK though!

    Whoa! That IS a leap! Ninja and I try to see who can go down the stairs with the least amount of touch downs…we are tied at 2…
