View from my perch

IMG_1650

Sometimes they catch me on the sofa, other times I squeeze onto the not-quite top step of the stairs for a snooze (although fraught with the danger of sliding off). Β From here can peruse the food options in the kitchen and potential cheeky cats prancing along the garden fence. Β If there’s anything of remote interest I skitter-scatter down, guns ablazing!

      Ruby’s actually not allowed upstairs because of the red wine incident and sleeping on the bed incident but she still sneaks over the child gate and perches up here looking innocent!

    That’s a good strategic spot Ruby! Very smart! Woooooowoooooo, Ku

      It’s a tight squeeze too. Have to be very careful getting into this spot and getting out of it without flling down πŸ™‚

      Yes – it’s my new favourite spot because I can also get in the way of people, especially the pedant in the kitchen who lifts his bike up here every day…

        Too right! Or a crumb from the table or something more substantial in the kitchen;)

    Great vantage point but not very cushy.

    Really need to chat to owners about putting a cushion on there… Especially in winter.
    You are just helping to guard the house after all… Least they can do.
    Hopefully they might read this and think “hmmm a cushion on almost top step for Ruby to lay on as she diligently guards our house would be a lovely thing to do”.
