So there are a couple reasons we keep the kittens confined while we are gone for long periods of time. One is that Barney thinks he is one of them and forgets that he is like 4 times bigger. Another is that they think they are daredevils. That thing Stella is looking at in the first picture is the corner of the stair railing - the top of which is about 85" off the ground. Now, she can reach it from the stairs without problem in that position. The problem is that Gus likes to climb on top of it - and now Stella is trying to copy her brother (she is a total tomboy). Now normally I wouldn't be overly worried - yes it is high but I know cats who jump up higher (Milo, you know I am looking at you) and I am sure they could land fine normally - but the exercise bike is right below where they climb! None of the other cats are big on the high climbing so this is a new one here. Anyway, here are a few pictures!
