Age Is in the Mind

I fell down the stairs

This morning, the humans were awfully slow in getting up. Mom wasn't feeling good, and no matter how hard Vicki and Bear tried, they couldn't get her out of bed. So I had to take matters into my own paws, and went upstairs, which I don't do much anymore. I went directly into the humans' room and put my paws on the side of the bed and yowled into Mom's ear. Well, that did it. She got up and put her bathrobe on, apologizing to us for being a sluggard.

Vicki and Bear ran immediately down the stairs, and I started to follow them. But I forgot that I can't scamper down two paws at a time like I used to. Somehow my paws got tangled up, and down the stairs I went. Mom was horrified and ran down to me, feeling me all over before she picked me up. I was OK, though mortified. I immediately starting licking my paws to show I meant to do that, though I guess I wasn't fooling anybody.

I feel like a klutz. Although, to be fair, it was all Mom's fault.

Glad you are ok. SOmetimes those paws just do not behave. I fell trying to jump up on the hutch by Momma's desk, and she felt real bad, so she knows how your Momma feels, but us kitties just sometimes get into troubles. Course if it gets ya extra treats....not so bad! take care buddy!

Oh Jasper,please be careful on those stairs, I like to take leaps and jumps and sometimes I miss-calculate my ability and have a hard landing and Momcatt gets stressed.
Take care buddy and be well.
Love, Mister Micky

Thanks, everybody, for your good wishes. I am fine, though Mom thinks I'm a little stiffer than usual today. She is giving me lots of gentle strokes and treats to make me feel better. (It would almost be worth it to fake some extra stiffness.)

This morning I made sure to deliver my yowls from the foot of the stairs.
