Up and Down

AYLA:  This is SUCH a typical picture of us.  I am allus up on somethin an Iza is allus down on the floor. 

Well, of course Iza does sometimes get up on stuff like the bed or the kitty condo or the table, but she hasta werk to get up on stuff so shes mostly a down cat.  I, on the other paw, am almost allus up on stuff.  Ive got 3 windersills ta get up on, theres the kitty condo, the bathroom counters, the bookcases, the puter desk, the tall basement tools, the indoor stepladder, even the noisy machine in the garage (when its quiet).  And chairs, lotsa chairs...

Even when I am down, its only cuz Im goin to a different place ta get up.  And when Im down, Im either prancin or runnin somewhere.  Iza says she stays down "cuz thats where all the toys are".  I know better...  Ya should see her just plannin ta get up on a chair.  She sits next ta it, stares fer a minnit, wriggles her butt a few times, then jumps hard!  She makes it, but ya can tell it not easy.  I dont even hafta THINK about it, just float up!

I get WAY more exercize than Iza does.

That sounds like Buddah and me. He's always looking to get up, I'm usually on the floor. But really, with him, I think it's cause he's full of hot air and kinda floats up there...

We all get more exercise now that Artemisia lives here. She is a very demanding ruler, always demanding we PLAY WITH HER.

My girls are thin and they all fly through the house, over the beds, down the stairs, etc; even my biggest girl, Calle, at 10 lbs, is really active and she actually jumps higher than both of her smaller sisters...kisses sweet friends...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Nimbus does the same thing... but when he jumps up he nails the landing perfectly. You won't even feel it if he's jumping on the bed. Curzon misses a lot though. Jadzia will think it through for a second or two but when she finally decides where she wants to go, she's there.

Johnny is the four-on-the-floor model around here. The rest of us do a lot of furniture-surfing...we like to play "hot lava" and stay on the sofa & chairs while we chase each other around.
