With the cooler weather one of the cat beds near the window wasn’t getting much use, so I decided to move it to on top of a little end table. It is reachable on the little stairstep ramp I have to let Gus get up on things. So I decided this might make him more inclined to do some exercising.
So I introduced it the other day and he sat in it for only a few minutes. But this afternoon somebody else decided that it was a good spot!
Later all the cats were upstairs on their own when I began to hear ominous thumps and rumbles. Since there was no yowls and hisses I guessed that Calpurnia was not involved and Gus and Julius were chasing each other around. They were vigorous enough to knock my upstairs PC out of hibernation mode.
When I went upstairs to check Gus was lying down innocently and Julie was perched on a low bookshelf nearby. But since I was there Julie went to the ‘door that never opens’ in the upstairs hall and asked me to open it.
It is a tiny little triangular linen closet that I don’t often go into and even less often are they around when I do. Gus and Julie took turns poking into the corners and checking out the items. Julie even popped up to the second shelf that is visible on the right.
This is a good example of Julie in ‘investigator mode’.
