that darn cat!

Posted on

shaun caught bijou attempting to shinny up the window pane under the blinds and up into the window frame.  he noticed her just in time. it was the noise of the effort, but at first we couldn't figure out where it was coming from. if she had been successful it might have been another arduous rescue mission, because petite though she may be, she is not graceful. she may have ended up on the neighbour's balcony yet again. lucky for her there is that balcony there. i don't think a four-storey fall would be good for her health.

the new place will offer a challenge in keeping her in. the balcony is one of those slatted metal sort of things that was big in the eighties. she could easily breeze between and because she is so determined it would be inevitable. being on the first floor we will probably have to surrender to her need to wander but we are going to try to find some way to fence her in. last night over sushi we brainstormed a bit. without making the balcony totally uninhabitable for humans we may have a solution, but making it happen will be another thing.

now don't get me wrong. it's not that i want to keep her from enjoying the outdoors at large. i worry about her scrappy nature (as regards to other cats) getting her into trouble. i would like to avoid large veterinary bills, and keep her in one piece and healthy. her proclivity for getting into spats with other cats, usually larger, might preclude this.
