Default Getting around the house


The doorbell rings, and you have an absolute duty to get there first.
So you stand up (you're on the sofa, of course), take a looooooooooong
step from the sofa to the coffee table, hop from the table to the
hassock, step from the hassock to the arm chair, hop to the bookshelf
by the door. You now have the drop on whomever or whatever is at the
door.

Something smells yummy in the kitchen, and you must investigate. You
once again, stand up, take a looong step to the coffee table, to the
hassock, and here you change your route. You make a nice leap to the
piano bench, step onto the piano keyboard, and walk along it (BONK
BONK bing bong BONK BANG!!) to the corner nearest the kitchen, where
alas, you have to jump down and actually walk on the floor.

If you are sleeping in your dining room chair, and you smell the
yummies, it goes like this. You stand up, stretch, get up on the
dining room table, LEAP about four feet (yahoo!) to the kitchen
counter, and walk around the kitchen counter to where you can stick
your nose into whatever Mommy is doing.

If you are looking out your favorite window, and you smell yummies, it
goes like this. You step to the radiator cover, then step to Mommy's
lap (she is sitting at her 'puter of course), making sure your paws
penetrate deeply into her flesh. One Two Three Four. Step to her
computer table, walk around the monitor, go behind it, and access the
kitchen counter from there. Walk around the counter, to locate
whatever is smelling yummy.

You also get from the kitchen window to the dining room window by
reversing the above.

You must of course, avoid as much as possible, having your beautiful
little paws touch the dirty nasty floor.

LOL! I've known many cats do that, but for some reason F&N are perfectly
comfortable walking on the floor. Oh, wait. All surfaces are so
cluttered here that they couldn't walk on them anyway.

My cats regard the sofa with all the rubbish piled on it as their
climbing frame whenever we tidy up they get annoyed (I love it-what an
excuse not to do any housework!)
