Astrid and Lisbeth’s Birthday Gift from Dad
Dad finished our birthday gift he was building: Kitty climbing shelves within our catio. They are PAWSOME! It seems as if some of our fursibs are taking to them more quickly than we are. Treats and nip were added as enticements with the hope we’d explore. Fiona and Mauricio “jumped” right to it. We are pretty embarrassed by their behavior. After all, we are kitties and not trained seals.
We kitties need to play hard to get. We must turn up our noses and walk away when we are given something new. Then we will investigate when no one is watching. If we find the gift meets with our approval, we will use it only when the humans aren’t present. In two weeks or so we might allow them to know we like it.
Mauricio and Fiona broke the Kitty Code of Indifference. And we have photographic proof.
There is a third set of shelves on the other end of the catio. That makes nine shelves in total—one for each of us and a spare. That better not mean those sneaky humans plan to bring home another cat. (Note from the Mom: Even if I wanted to invite another kitty to join our family, your dad would never allow it. So not to worry, kitties!)
The birthday present from Mom is scheduled to arrive on Tuesday so the celebration will continue! But that’s not all. We have two boxes waiting to be opened—one from Charles (Lisbeth’s boyfriend) and one from Sampy (Astrid’s boyfriend). Both boxes arrived yesterday. Mom said we can open one today and one tomorrow. This is the best birthday ever, and we’ll be sharing more about it in future posts.
Purrs and paw-pats, Astrid and Lisbeth

That’s an awesome birthday present! Don’t be too critical of Fiona and Mauricio – they are shelves at a window – and that’s really tempting even to the most ambivalent of kitty.
Whoa! Those are really high up. I used to jump on the door but I’ve slowed down some. TW hasn’t put the shelves she has for me up yet. Again, Happy Birthday guys!
That is wonderful! Teddy and Jack are not going to see this. They would be so jealous. They just have a plain old pet shop thing.
Your Dad did a great job. I am glad you are having such a great birthday.
AWESOME X nine!
Wow! Those shelves look pawsome! Could your dad come to our house and put some shelves up for us? 😉
Whoa that was a pawsome gift! You are all wonderfully spoiled, err blessed kitties.
Those are lovely shelves. Just think how much you can see from up there.

Oh those are soooooooooooo cute!!
Those look so great. What a way to explore!
What a pawesome gift from your dad! Those are so cool!
Wow! What a great kitty condo room!!!!
Our Cat loves to lounge all over our furniture and our shelves. Make sure you train them kittens so they don’t climb all over the place! It’s important to teach your cats while they’re young!
What a pawsome present for all the Kitties Blue. Can mom top dad’s gift?
Happy Friday everyone…………Loads of kisses to my sweetheart Ms Lisbeth
