Do You Perform Stair Troll Duties?


I remember back years ago when the gang at Katnip Lounge called my preference for sitting on the stairs my “Stair Troll Job”. And here I am, still at it!

Caught me! Resting my eyes on the job

OH, well, at least in that first photo I was gettin’ ready to ‘start’ my duties as Stair Troll. Here I am now, eyes wide open (almost) performing my “Stair Troll Job” while also enjoying a delish’ sun puddle.

See? I am so on duty...eyes are open even if squinting

  1. That is a great vantage point to keep an eye on everything Savvy. I have a blanket chest at the top of the stairs that I use.

  9. Sun puddles are awesome, especially during wintertime!!

  10. It looks like you are very good at stair troll duties. I wish we had stairs so I could do it too.

  11. I hope you’re getting paid in more than sunpuddles. They’re nice but they don’t pay for nip or vine.

  12. We think that pawsome sunpuddle has something to do with you being on the stairs, Savvy.

    Several of us perform that duty with regularity. We like to lie on the stairs and stick our heads through the spindles so we can spy on what is going on downstairs. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  18. Glad your on the case Sav! haha!

    Do you monitor the stairs for a certain little cat trying to get past you? Sometimes we have a secret password for the stairs. If the other cats don’t know the password they are not getting past the stair troll. Winter sun puddles are wonderful. They make the humans and cats feel good. Enjoy your sun puddle. Hope your mom is feeling better. Love, Cali, Andy, Tater and Shelly (C.A.T.S.)

  20. A kitty’s work is never done… But at least it’s fun!

  21. It’s an impawtant job – taking care of/monitoring stairs (especially if the best sun puddles land there!) is part of what we do…….I love our stairs!

    Hugs, Sammy

  22. You’re the cutest stair troll ever, Savvy!

  23. that’s an impawtant job … the stairs troll gets stair toll, right?

  24. Ya sure look like you’re enjoyin dat sunpuddle.

  25. We have great stairs, but Binga and I are only occasional stair trolls. Boodie shirks off on that job.

  26. you don’t need to have you eyes open for this job you just need to listen for sounds,well done Savvy,xx Speedy

    We wish the Sun could shine on our stairs. But, sadly they are always dark. Our HuMom says, “oh boo hoo, make do with the large picture windows on the east, south and west sides of the house.” Someone thinks they heard her call us meowing crybabies! Just because we don’t think it’s fair to force 4 kitties to share 3 picture windows. Someone always gets stuck in on of the smaller bedroom windows. Maybe we’ll strike until we get sun on our stairs!

  28. You are guarding the sun puddle there, aren’t you?

  29. We wish we had stairs to patrol

  30. It’s a hard job, but some kitteh has to do it.
    We hope you got to collect some toes, er… tolls!

  31. Well someone has to keep an eye out in case mum tumbles! so well done Savvy…and when I say keep an eye out I do mean eye…oe can still be closed..i am sure 🙂 loves Miss Bev xx

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