Well, Blackie’s human doesn’t like the idea of Blackie on the sofa when she’s away. Blackie’s hair is black, the sofa is off white…….not a good combination.
To block Blackie’s access to the sofa, her human thought a gate across the stairway up to the sofa would work. Hmm……….in typical cat fashion Blackie found a way around it.
I looked for her downstairs since she typically hangs out there, but she was nowhere to be found. I’d finished all chores and was preparing to leave. Lo and behold, I happened to glance at the sofa and there was Blackie, nestled comfortably among the pillows in the corner. She was being very still in hopes I wouldn’t see her, I walked closer and Blackie made a run for it……..squeezing between the spindles of the staircase.
She squeezed through easily, going around the gate that was supposed to block her access. Gates to stop a cat………nah, not gonna happen!
