Sunday Selfies Week #199


Sunday Selfies In the Dog House


I think my humans are mad at me. I heard them say that I was naughty. Beats me what I did wrong. Supposedly we kitties are not supposed to jump from the railing of the upper deck to the roof.

Dad came home yesterday afternoon and saw me on the roof as he drove up to the house. The last he’d seen me I was on the catio. Mom created a collage to show you where I began my journey and where I was spotted.



The first photo is just to give a bit of perspective. The second photo shows where I jumped from and the X marks where I landed. The third photo shows where Dad saw me. (I am going to have to be more discreet the next time I try this.)

Dad tried to coax me in the attic window, but I took off. When Mom called me from the upper deck, I came down the way I went up, which is how she knew what I had done; though, she already had a suspicion that’s what I did. She was all freaked out thinking what might have happened if I’d had a seizure while I was on my adventure. I say, “no harm, no foul!”

Now the humans are trying to figure out how to keep me from having another similar adventure. Pffft! Kittens just want to have fun. Am I right?

So that’s the tale of how I ended up in the dog house.

I do have a real selfie for you as well.

Oh, little Sawyer, you’re going to have to stop that rooftop carousing. It’s too hard on your Mom and Pop! Not to mention, you might hurt yourself. Be good!

Luv ya’

Hi Dezi, Our catio, which is the lower deck, is screened in (as you can see in the photos). The upper deck, however, is not screened. Our cat door goes out to the upper deck (with stairs to lower one), which did not have a roof until a couple of year’s ago. Mom and Dad never worried about us leaping off, as it is so far to the ground. They never thought of us going to the roof, and I am the first to ever try it. Mom has a plan on how to thwart this activity. Pffft! Hugs, Sawyer

OH Sawyer I can understand why you gave your pawrents a heart attack! One time Ping got up on the roof but we only have a one story house and that gave Mom all kind of heartburn! We are glad you are safe but we have a feeling that area of the house is gonna be off limits for you for awhile!


speedyrabbit June 3, 2018 at 11:33 am

I bet it was worth the telling off Sawyer,xx Speedy

I want to go up there on that roof you! What a view you must have! My mom would freak out to if she saw me on a roof, especially since I’m an indoor kitty. One time, the white kitty before me got on the neighbor’s roof early in the morning and so Dad had to set up an extension ladder to get him down. Tee hee hee. Just be careful! Purrs. PS (Pussycat Short note: Mom wants your house!)

We know that was fun but it had to be very skeery for your Mom and Dad and you could of gotten a really bad ouchie. PLEASE don’t do it again.

Sawyer, it’s a good thing you’re cute, otherwise you’d be in that dog house forever! Don’t go on the roof again…it could be dangerous.

That is a super cute selfie but you’ve got to not do those super leaps, it could not be fun if you miss!

The Menagerie Mom June 3, 2018 at 8:31 am

Sawyer! That sounds like kind of a terrifying adventure to us. Perhaps you thought it was fun, though? You sure do like to keep your mom and dad on their toes. Stay safe, Sawyer (in other words, no more roof adventures!)!


Pam Greer June 3, 2018 at 8:03 am

Oh my goodness, you did have quite the adventure!!


Deb Barnes June 3, 2018 at 7:54 am

That would have given our human a reason to get all loud and dramatic for sure! Glad you had fun (and that you didn’t get hurt). Sunday purrs from Deb and the Zee/Zoey gang.


Roby Sweet June 3, 2018 at 7:45 am

Sawyer, my cat Darya used to get on the roof of the building we lived in (3 stories). It was terrifying! More often, she would get onto the roof over the back porch of the neighboring house (vacant). All this was after she and the neighbor’s cat created a hole in the screen door so she could get out!

Be safe, buddy! 🙂


Scylla, Fenris, Tuiren, YinYang & Chimera (ATCAD) June 3, 2018 at 7:42 am

Yes, you are very CUTE! And yes we CATS would have gotten up there too. And yes, our Mommy would put us in the dog house for it, but tell your Mommy at least you didn’t pull a Scylla. See Scylla gets everywhere we do but then she can’t come down and the humans have to go get her. She screams at the top of her lungs until they rescue her.

Sawyer, that would frighten any mom half to death. PLEASE don’t do the again


Charles Huss June 3, 2018 at 6:53 am

Looks like you had quite an adventure, Sawyer. Our Frankie got on our roof a couple of times before I stopped letting him out without a harness. Check out the video stat around 7:15.

Sawyer, we can’t blame you, but don’t scare your mom like this too often ! Cute selfie, it’s the face of innocence, MOL ! Purrs


Little Binky and Granny June 3, 2018 at 4:40 am

Oh, oh, oh, Sawyer, you are so adventurous and so cute at the same time🙀 We’re glad your adventure ended allright😺 Pawkisses for an Easy Sunday🐾😽💗


Teddy June 3, 2018 at 3:39 am

Yikes Sawyer! You must be part monkey to have achieved that climbing success but I have a feeling your prowess was NOT appreciate by your parents – you may have to stop all of that and stay in the spots you KNOW you are allowed! No sense giving your Mom and Dad palpitations with your adventures. They DO want to keep you safe you know!

Hugs, Teddy

Summer June 3, 2018 at 3:36 am

Sawyer, I can’t say I blame you for taking that opportunity! If your humans don’t want you doing it, they are just going to have to screen off that space.

Yael June 3, 2018 at 3:15 am

OMG. That must have been scary for your human. Raja climbs up on my roof and the first time he couldn’t figure out how to get down. Took about an hour to coax him down by the chimney.

prancer pie June 3, 2018 at 1:13 am

You really ARE cute, but that would have scared my human half to death, too!
Your poor Mom and Dad. No more adventures on the roof, sweet Sawyer.
Hope you all have an easy and non-adventurous Sunday.


Dalton/Angel-MrJackFreckles/Pipo & Angel-Minko June 3, 2018 at 1:06 am

OMC! That must have been so scary for your peeps. You sure are a rascal, Sawyer!

Now your peeps are going to have to resort to some kind of enclosure or containment system…or make you stay inside unless you are snoopervised.

But I bet it was lots of fun while you were up there…was the view spectacular??!

Hee! Hee!! Sawyer, you are a teenager after my own heart! Us ex feral kitties can be BAD!
After my adventure escaping into the great outdoors LAST Saturday, Mom thought I, Marvelous, might have got it out of my system..but NO! I ripped a hole in the Catio today and climbed up onto the roof over the deck! Mom says when her arm is better she is going to get metal screening or the catio will be taken apart and I won’t have a great outdoors!
I told her I came when she called…

Sawyer Blue! We’re with your Mom and Dad … don’t be going up there, okay? You’re going to give us all a heart attack!

Nice selfie, by the way.


Marjorie and Harvey June 3, 2018 at 12:07 am
