Rooffus!

It's an alien …. or a strange fungus …. or something?

Ah! Just checking on the neighbours!

Looking determined!

Really want to get down now!

Luckily a tall man was passing by!
I am NOT embarrassed. I just need to inspect that peony over there!

The stupid Staff was too busy laughing and taking pictures of me in my predicament to be of any assistance! Although I insist it wasn't a "predicament" as such, I was just testing the altitude and checking to see if the hedge needed trimming! Oh, and I am not telling how I got up there!

  3. MOL on that first pic, Austin! Wow you're brave getting up there. Glad you got down via the tall man. Of course, you could've come down any time. you just take advantage of him while he was there.

    Purrs,

  5. I don't know why your staff was laughing - I think it was pretty smart of you to have a human get you down instead of having to do it yourself.

  7. Whew - I sure am glad you had help getting down. That looks pretty far to jump without breaking something. I bet it was great fun up there.

  10. Maybe you could become a stunt cat for like in movies and stuff? That looks pretty dangerous up there Austin! You are quite brave ;)

  11. MOL! We laughed and laughed at that first photo. You didn't need help coming down, we're sure. You were just giving that nice tall man some Austintherapy by letting him lift you. :)

  14. Wow Austin - you were HIGH UP there buddy...I woulda got a nose bleed!! Good thing a tall person saved you....and even though you're not telling how you got UP there, I assume it was a lot easier doing THAT part than coming down would have been without the tall person around!!!

  15. Oh yes, we are both on the roof. You should see how I get down Austin. I go down the screen on the screen porch and so there really iss't any more screen porch. LOL. It is great fun up on the roof isn't it. Take care.

  16. If it had been me, I'd have left you up there... until after I ate your dinner.

  17. HA HA! You are very brave, Austin, to be up there like that! I'd have been right up there w/you and MomKatt would've been freaking out!

  24. I can't believe your mom thought your beautiful tail might be a fungus, Austin. You really do endure too much! :D

    ReplyDelete
  25. I say you made good use of your staff.. you got up there to survey your territory, and you finagled a ride down to the ground when you were done.

    Awesome job

    ReplyDelete
  26. Well of course you were not in a predicament sweet Austin you were just doing your job! Hugs and nose kisses

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ha! And we're betting that hedge really did need to be trimmed. How else can you spy on the neighbors? MOL! Purrs...

  28. Your roof has sprouted cattails! It IS damp in your part o'the world.

    ReplyDelete
  29. That sure looks like a good place to check out everything!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh, dear! You had a cattail sprouting from your roof :)

    I love the 'I'm not embarrassed' act :) Our Siamese used to use it, too. Her attitude said, "What? I meant to do that."

  31. One small step for feline-kind. You go, AstroAustin.

  32. MOL! You are as bad as Eric was. He liked to climb trees but mum usually ended up helping him back down.

    ReplyDelete
  33. HAH! You couldn't get down! OMC! You were prolly all nipped up and flew. MOL! Sorry Auzteen the Whap.

    ReplyDelete

  35. Looks like you were doing a great perimeter check to me:-)

  36. Wow, you sure were high up there!! Carmine gets on top of the cabinets, then cries because he wants down, but I can't reach that high. Eventually, he figures out he has to jump down onto the fridge so I can get him, LOL.

    Purrs,
    Carmine, Milita, and Jewel
