I think my foster kittens can fly!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I just got new foster babies tonight, 3 six month olds, and 2 three month olds. Two of the older ones are freakin' me out! I've been around cats my whole life, but good grief those older ones are climbing fanatics! One of them easily scaled my "kitten door" at about 4 1/2 feet. I could live with that, I just shut the "real" door. I just now heard this horrific scrambling sound, so I ran back there & pulled back the curtain (the door has a high window), and I'm telling you, I was face-to-face with one of the kittens...he was just hanging there...levitating I think! Scared the crap outta me, I'll tell you! I did not expect to see that! I think these cats are part monkey!

I'm pretty sure they're back there right now trying to figure out how to work the door knob...I swear to God!

Ah, yes, here that would be Fawn! She's almost 4 and still climbing walls daily -- that is, when she's not bouncing off them

I guess I'm just used to smaller kittens, and my ancient cat who can barely jump to a conclusion these days! These "kittens" have to be about 8 or 9 pounds apiece, so they're big...I have to remember that.

You need to take a video of it for us!

Megan used to climb the drapes. We'd walk around the corner and there she'd be , hanging from the top . I'd die laughing , but hubby didn't think it was very cute.

Tippy used to climb curtains when she was a kitten - I'm glad she doesn't do it now - she'd pull the lot off the wall

Lily climbs brick walls though. We were seriously thinking about changing her name to Spider Kitty. We have a brick fireplace in the living room and when she first came she tried scaling this thing more than one

One of the things that makes cat such interesting and loveable critters is their diversity ! ! They are ALL different, each with their own "schtick", and FWIW, turning doorknobs is one of the things that a LOT of them master early on.

Having lived more years than the Big Guy promised (and thankful for every one of them) and having had more than that number of cats, my life has been enriched bountifully by the diverse antics and personalities of the many furbabies that have blessed my days and allowed me a brief peek into their lives.

It is odd to see a cat face to face without having to pick them up!

Tibby's known to have a climb of the curtains! He woudl go up, swing and just look at you as if to say 'What you gonna do about it!' The thing is though, as he's so big he pulled the rail from the wall at my parents' house....oops!

Thanks everyone! I don't know how I've been around cats so long, and have never had climbers. Hearing about all the cats who can scale walls, well, it makes me feel like their not so odd!

Tonight someone's coming over who is interesting in a couple of the bigger guys!

Now if I could only coax the two little ones, and one of the big ones out of the litter box.

I'll bet that was a sight to see! I don't know what I'd do if I came face to face with one of my kits "levitating" lol! I hope your company tonight takes a liking to a cat or two but it might be fun to keep your "flying kitties" a little while longer.

Kelly, too funny!

Actually, Russian Blues are also known for their climbing skills and when my guys were kittens (esp. Mik) I would go "$%&!" because I would see them balancing on top of doors or up in a part of the closet I can barely reach.

yeah, they're interesting! I really do hope, though, that this guy takes a couple of the big ones...I always worry about placing the bigger ones. Most people want a little kitten. Hmm...maybe I should hide the little girls

Errr...maybe I don't want RBs as much as I think I do.

Actually, they're settling in now, and aren't climbing as much. I have seen one of them eyeing the brick wall, though
