It is Just NOT Fair!

Princess is an athlete.   She is lithe and quick and flexible and strong – even as a senior kitty:  even as a senior kitty that has put a few ounces on around her middle…

She is more powerful pound for pound than Rusty.  She has better balance.  As a result she can go places he can not.


When she dashes up the kitty tree in the laundry room and then balances her way around on the exposed beams – Rusty knows he can’t do it… but he so WANTS to!

He will wander about watching trying to see a way he could do the same.  Sometimes he looks at me plaintively and asks.  But I can’t put him up there as I know (and he does too) that he may not be able to stay there or get down safely.  So he just has to wish.

He is a good kitty for making the painfully difficult decision to not try.  Hmmm…. I could learn from him.  This body of mine isn’t as lithe and strong as it used to be…

    Aww, poor Rusty. Princess should at least do those types of things when he is sleeping so he doesn’t know what he’s missing out on.
