Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Are You A Dare Devil?


Now I am asking this question seriously. I wanna find out if any of my readers are the “dare devil” type like my sisfur The Kid Sage. She has been making Mom L awfully scared from the first time she pulled in front of her. Mom L then found out Dad P already knew TKS was doing this but he didn’t wanna worry Mom L. AS IF!!

And Mom L knows she can’t do anything except hope TKS will come to her when she calls. Anything that would startle TKS would be a flat out disaster.

Of course, TKS is blind to why anyone would be worried.

“Tum-tee-dum-dum-doodly-do—such a nice view!”

I really love the view from here. Nothing happens I can’t see.

“I can see down the upstairs hallway and keep an eye on Dad P and Mom L in their offices. And, I can see if HRH Savannah comes out of our bedroom and heads downstairs. If she does then I can sneak up behind her and get a quick butt sniff!

Ahhh…there goes HRH Savannah. I’d best get ready to jump over to the top step to get behind her.

“I wonder if I ought to try and get in front of her sometime. That’s not such a bad jump from here to the second flight of stairs, is it??”

I’m sure I can make the jump to the stairs below. Bet I’d scare Savvy!!

“Oh hiya Mom L. What’cha doing? What did you say? Oh, you don’t want me to try the jump? Why not, I know I can make it just fine. Wait a minute! Did you say no treats or snacks between meals if I ever try that jump? Seriously?

Why is Mom L so testy about me hangin’ out here and thinking about a new jump?

Thankfully, TKS did not try that jump on “that day”. But, we suspect “the day” will come when no one is watching. What do you do that is enough to cause your human to shiver and wring their hands? Let me know in comments. Hopefully some of you are even more dare devilish than TKS so Mom L can get a grip on her wringing hands.

  3. Blimey! That looks an awesome scary jump. I do hope you take care, and carry a parachute too! I think I’d take a mom or dad taxi rather than jump that. MOL
    Toodle-oo and purrs

    OOH! Sage, that scares us, too. Be careful, and do NOT jump, okay???

    Thank you so much, dear pals, for your thoughtful condolences and purrs about our sweet angel Zoe’s passing. We are super grateful for you. Love and hugs.

  5. Be careful, Sage! I have to admit, that would be hard to resist!

  6. Oh my mouses, Sage. That’s so high! And the ledge is so narrow! It’s no wonder you’re makin’ your mom nervous. MOUSES!

  7. Oh my, stay safe TKS!!!

  8. HAH! Another reason TW is glad they didn’t go for one of the loft condos here. I used to give TW a heart attack when I climbed on the top of the door to our bedroom. Haven’t done it for years tho.

  9. Oh my she is just like Chimera. Chimera walks across the rails for the garage door in order to get to the top shelf. They are very narrow and she is the only one of us with good enough balance to do it and then she leaps to the top shelf. It worries Mommy sick as it is a long way down.

  10. **Hi-5’sss** Sage!!! Mee gets uppy on top of cupberd like NYLABLUE sued to do an tries to jump an mee getss thee same ‘no treet an snack’ threat…trust mee…our Mumma’ss MEEN it!

    Sage just DO NOT jump OK??? 😉
    **nose rubsss** Dharth Henry xXx

  11. You have seen our video of Miranda climbing trees on the blog – right? She is a complete daredevil. Like TKS she has no fear. We have had to take a deep breath (make sure she is insured) and try to keep calm when this happens.

    We do enough helicopter parenting as it is and Miranda would only get worse if we panicked so we have to take a ‘deep breff’ as Dash used to say and rely on her cat instincts.

  12. Wow, TKS sure is a dare devil! We like to get on top of the china cabinet and jump off…but only to the dining room table…about 5-6 feet. Does that count as being a dare devil?

  13. OMD…My paws were sweating just looking at those photos! I am definitely no dare devil like TKS! I guess you could call me a scaredy dog! BOL!

  14. The OP Pack on said:

    Yikes and double yikes!!! That would really scare our Mom. We sure hope TKS doesn’t decide to jump unless there is a big fluffy cushion under her.

    Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  15. My guess is that TKS has already made the jump a few times successfully. Secretly! You should see what I do when Mom isn’t here…..

    Love and licks,

  16. OK, so I can barely look at these photos because I have a huge fear of heights! But yes, our dear Rosie is also a daredevil and would totally do something like this. Rosie tends to try stuff like this when she is trying to wake us up – like at 4:00 in the morning I’lll hear leap up on the tall bookshelf and knock books off when she lands.

  17. The Swiss Cats on said:

    Pixie and I would do it too ! Purrs, Zorro

  18. I would totally do that! Binga too. Boodie might now.

  19. I’m you twin TKS… and I wish I could climb like you… even when the mama gets 87 heart attacks….

  20. Yikes!! But kitties have excellent balance……so, there ya go!!

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