Do Cats “kick the tires” On New Things?


You Bet We Do!!!

Answered that question; now let’s move on to see how The Kid Sage (TKS) and I did some tire kicking on a new tower our humans brought home.

Clearly, they were hoping to persuade one or both of us to spend more time with one or more of them…HAH! I say. WE decide where and when we spend our time…’nuff said about that.

Here we go then, TKS does a really fine job of being the first to kick the carpet strands on this new tower. (be sure to hover over photos to view all captions)

I am certain some of you are asking yourselves…”Just how many cat towers do TWO cats need?”

Good question.  If you recall, the humans brought home this amazing, incredible new modern fancy paws cat tower…remember the whole blog post about it’s assembly…click HERE.

Well, that modern cat tower has remained, mostly, empty. Yep, neither one of us cares to spend much time there…ahem…ok, ok…”I” spend NO TIME on, up, near that tower. TKS does, maybe once or twice a month climb up to see if there is some way to make it disappear!!!

TKS did the initial ‘tire/carpet kicking’ in the first placement of the new tower. I was, personally, not that interested.  It was placed by a window in Mom L’s office which never ever gets a single sun puddle. Like I need that, right?

Then they moved it to the spot in the living room where my floor bed had been stationed. As you can see…that made it a lot more interesting for me…and of course, my acceptance is the most important.

Yes, I have accepted the new cat tower as a part of my castle.

    Ahhhh new furniture. That one looks like a luxury model, too!

  5. 3.295879600678 cat towers. I asked my sister Mason (on account of her extra toes) to crunch (on account of her extra helpings of snacks) the numbers to find an answer to your question and she has informed me that the answer is 3.295879600678 cat towers. How you get the .295879600678 part of a tower, I do not know. Neither does she. She had no answer for that. MOUSES!


  6. It’s usually those fancy expensive things that the cats veto. They want their old raggedy comforts they’ve worn in well.

  7. Love love love your new tower!!
    I bought a beautiful tower for my kitties a couple months ago, they absolutely loves it……for one week! That’s it! They never touch it anymore!

    Awesome job of kicking the tires, Savvy and Sage! You can never be too careful, right?

    P.S. – great tower! 🙂

  12. Would you believe I currently have 4 cat towers in our little 17 x 17 living room? We’re waiting for Linda to pick at least one of them up. Why so many? One is the hand me down from Nicky. One was too big; one was too small. Then Pop missed the old one he used to FURminate me on. I go on all of them to play but only sleep on the hand me down. Nicky had good taste.

    Savannah, I know it seems a fable but I truly love you, I have for a long time since you started blogging. I hope to pete sakes to get over to see you more often. ❤

  14. We like that new tower. It’s low enough…and right by a window. You can lay there and watch the world go by. It’s very similar to our mini-cat tree (that’s what we call ours).

    • We have another one just like this one upstairs, and I am starting to like to sit in the top part when the sun puddle comes in…I can watch bird TV up real close! And now that TKS is no longer hogging the room it is in, I can use it whenever I want

  15. Your mum should now just as we kitties know that placement is everything.

  16. The Swiss Cats on said:

    You should have a tower in each room of the house ! We’re working on that with our humans (2 rooms left without cat tree) ! Purrs

  17. The OP Pack on said:

    Very nice new tower, Savannah. We are the same way about new beds. Takes a while for them to hit the right spot with us too:)

  18. That looks like a really nice cat tower! I bet you’re really going to enjoy it. 🙂

  19. That tower is a beauty! Glad it’s passed inspection.

    • you make sure those pigeons know you will be watching their antics from Summerland my BFF. Mom L has a commitment all day tomorrow but will check in on your Mum as soon as she can. We will have some tuna tuna in your honor

  21. How many towers do you need? Well, we need eleven point two towers, please. Plus extras just in case that carpet isn’t up to snuff! Wouldn’t you agree? Purrs…

  22. I usually have to check things out first before my sisters will go near anything new!

  23. You have to keep the humans on their toes. “kicking tires” and then wandering off with nose in the air as if not interested and then at some later date return for a more intense inspection is the way to go!! xx

  24. you can’t have enough cat towers, they are fabulous! and not even HRM has so much towers, she only has one: The Tower :o)

  25. This tower looks like a a lot of fun!! We have towers in every room of our house… but we only use one of them… 😉 MOL 😆 Happy weekend! 😀 xx Roxy & Tigerlino ❤

  26. Hope you enjoy the new tower. We likes to play with stuffs like that when it is new, then we won’t go near it for months, then the people start getting the they never use it we should just get rid of it mode on and we start using it again. It is very impawtant to keep the humans confused and befuddled. ~Scylla & Family

  27. That looks like a really fun cat tree! Summer is right, there should be one in every room of the house so we can race up and down whenever it occurs to us.

  28. Great! New stuff is always FUN to get……I myself have never had a tower – isn’t that pitiful? I’ve never been a “climber” though…..but if I WAS one, I’d love that new tower of yours Savvy- I hope you and Sage give it a good workout!

    Hugs, Sammy

  29. Kickin tires is better than what dogs do to them.

  30. Reminds me that my two need at least some repair on their favourite corner cat tower … close enough to the window that they can mount up to the window sill … and still used by one of them as scratching device – which makes it necessary now to replace one of the columns now …

  31. Excellent tower! It is the purrfect height for the window, too. We have towers in every room of our house. You can never have too many!

    With that delightful hidey hole, what’s not to like? XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  33. Well, that does look like a great tower! I think a kitty should have one in every room of the house! I love my new castle.

  34. Neat new tower! A kitty can never have too many towers (unless they’re those modern styles that are more for the humans than for kitties).

Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
