Mancat (in Training) Monday: Conquering the Closet

I recently found a way to climb up to the closet shelves. This is another one of those places that I'm not supposed to be. As usual, that doesn't stop me!

I love getting all the way to the top because nobody can reach me!

I was thinking about walking across the trim here. Then decided to just jump instead.

My favorite thing to do in the closet is to balance myself on the bar where the clothes hang and bat around the light string. Jen says that my claws are out in this picture way too much to be around clothes. So now the closet door is being kept shut unless someone is in it. The humans don't want me to have any fun!



By the way, a special thanks to Maggy, Zoey and Ann over at Zoolatry for my new banner! Thanks ladies I LOVE it!!

  1. (snickers, with a playful grin...) Tuck, come out of the closet.

    I can't believe I'm the first cat to say that here in the comments. The opportunity to make that funny was too easy. Forgive me, bro!

  7. Nice climbing! I don't have a closet, but there's a mound of carriers I like to climb that makes the humans around here a little nervous.

  12. Hi Tuck! I'm very impressed with your activities in the closet. It is important to find all the highest places. I'm sorry that it is being closed off to you, but you do have to be careful with the claws around clothing. The humans don't like the artwork that we create... they call it "snags".

    My favorite photo of you is in the sidebar, where you look like you were photographed in mid-meow. It always cracks me up!

  19. Your banner is really lovely. Zoolatry are so talented - they made ours too.

    Alfie loves to go in Mom's closet too. But she tries to keep him out 'cos she said: "he snagglepusses her clothes"!

  20. Humans are party poopers sometimes! It looks like you were having great fun, though.

  21. P.S. Zoolatry did a great job on the banner!

  22. That's some great Mancat training. Mom found me sleeping on her clothes hanging on the rod one day. Closets are the best to play in, but now I sleep on the flood instead.

  23. Tuck, you're learning valuable mancat skills by climbing in that closet. If you put it to your Mom that way, maybe she'll let you play in there -- or let you have another even better place for you to climb!

  24. It seems lettuce isn't the only thing we have in common! I LOVE being inside the closet, especially way up high.

    The humans don't want us in there so they close the door. On those occasions when I can't open it, I keep on banging until they have to get up and open it for me.

    It's all about being persistant as you train them. They're slow but eventually get it.

  26. We like your new banner!
    You are a really good climber! We also love to be in the closet. But one day Olli trapped Luna in the closet when he jumped at the door.
    Be careful!

  28. Tuck, I am always getting in trouble for being places I shouldn't be too ... it's soooo much fun to be a trouble maker, isn't it! Hee hee! You are doing your training well!

  29. Humans should know that once they tell us there is a place we shouldn't go that is the exact place we want to be. Nemo went onto the cabinets and tried to walk behind a bunch of collector wine bottles. Mom was gasping and trying to get him to not rub them. It wouldn't have been so fun if she said to go up there all we want.
