Today I stood up and was about to get off the big bed when Mommy saw me and pushed the bed stairs closer to me to help me down. I said "Thank you , Mommy" and then started off for the dining room for some noms.
I got about halfway down the big stairs to the first floor when I got stuck. I needed a help. I had accidentally stepped into a box of socks that was sitting on a step. About half the box was hanging over the stair. If I took a wrong step and shifted my weight too much, the box and I would go flying.
Mommy heard me fussing and came right away. She gasped when she saw me and tried to think of a way to get me out of the box without tipping it over. Normally any cat would know to just jump right out of that silly box of socks, but I am almost 16. My jumping moves are not what they used to be.
I took that dreaded step to the edge and Mommy yelped "no!" and her panic scared me so I took another step and then wheeeeeeee! I was surfing! I bailed near the end though by jumping, but thankfully I landed the jump.
Me, Mommy, the box and all of the socks landed at the bottom of the staircase at about the same time. (Mommy did not fall but came running very fast.) Mommy held me close and muttered something about how certain people should know better than to leave their box of socks on the stairs for people and cats to have accidents.
Well, I would not be in any hurry to do that again, but it was kind of fun! I showed everyone that I can still jump when I need to!

Wow--that sounds like a lot of fun! Maybe I can get one of my humans to leave HIS box at the top of the stairs too.
Whew!!! We're glad to hear you survived the stair surfing scene!! Maybe I'll try that next time if meowmy leaves a box on the stairs..... it sounds like fun!!!
