Fankful Friday

Tutu : MOMMY! Why is this thing here? How do I get through?
This is the top half of the stairs. I had turned off the lights and was heading to the bedroom with Whisky (Wednesday night). Whisky had gone into the room but as I was walking in, she decided to walk out. And before I could stop her, she had missed her footing and fallen down the stairs. I rushed down to see how she was and she didn't cry out but was shivering. After checking her over, she seemed to have no injuries so I brought her back to the room and stayed with her until she fell asleep
The next day, I put up a DIY gate. I had checked baby gates but those had a bar across the bottom which I think is very dangerous when put at the top of the stairs. The humans may trip on it and fall down the stairs. And we may not be as lucky as Whisky to escape unhurt.

:: C R A S H ::
Give it another try, Cosmo? I'm sure you can do it
Cosmo : *Recalculating*
:: L E A P ::
Well done, Cosmo!
Whisky : So I won't ever fall down the stairs again?
No, sweetie. You won't
Whisky : You positive?
Yes, sweet girl
You want to show everyone where you landed after you fell?
Whisky : Okay!
Whisky : Right THERE! Where my stunt double is
Tutu : Mommy! I found a way to get through!
Tutu : SEE?
Cosmo : Look, Ling! It's easy. Just remember to tuck in your body and paws!
Ling : Uh...I think I'll go with Tutu's method
This is the second time Whisky has fallen down the stairs. And both times, she escaped unhurt. I think it's because her legs are the same height as the steps so she kind of slid down the stairs. I was worried she might have bruised her tummy or ribs but she is perfectly fine. I'm so thankful.

Whisky is such a sweetheart! Look at her worried little face! Poor baby. I am glad she wasn't injured. I love the stunt double. Don't worry, Whisky, we won't make you do an encore. But look at the cats! The cats are too ninja for words!

Poor Whisky, falling down the slippery stairs. My dog Litchi also battles with that. Clever kitties, all finding ways over and around it :)

CATachresis said...

Whisky has the cutest face, EVER!! So glad she is ok. The kitties are awesome jumpers and very clever!!

Marg said...

Oh Whisky, we sure are glad you are all right. That looks like a long ways to fall. Thank heavens you did't get hurt. Love the gate and way to go Tutu finding a way to get around it. Take care.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Whew. We're glad Whisky is okay. Scary, for both of you.

Those leaping shots are truly fabulous! Trust kitties to figure a way over or through. :-)

Old Kitty said...

OMD so glad Whisky was OK. Our Pip also has fallen down the stairs as her eye sight is going. We also have a baby gate but when she goes upstairs we are behind her and when down stairs we are in front of her to catch her if she falls. It is our routine now. Have a fabulous Friday.
Best wishes Molly

Caren Gittleman said...

you must have been terrified! Thank goodness Whisky is ok!

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

That looks like a good solution to keep Whisky from taking another spill. Any idea why she fell? If both falls were at night, would a night light of some kind help?

Kjelle Bus said...

So GLAD you didn´t was hurt when you fall down thoose stairs , Whisky !!
I do like Tutu when I wan´t to go in the livingroom when mom and dad are sleeping :)
Yes there is a DIY gate in the doorpost :(

Random Felines said...

Ouch - glad Whisky is OK. Mom says to watch that gate though - we have one similar we use for baby jail and while Tim clears it, his back feet miss sometimes and the gate moves all over the place.

finnhoward said...

Oh Whisky, I am glad you didn't hurt yourself. Stairs are definitely scary. Charley pokes his head through our railings from the top and I think sometimes he might jump/fall!

Hannah and Lucy said...

Tutu you made our Mum laugh when she saw you pushing the gate open.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Nadine said...

Glad that Whisky is ok that was a pretty far fall! Of course the cats have to investigate and check out the new gate always so curious : )

Tamago said...

Oh Whisky, it must have been scary! So glad you are okay. And how great your mom put the gate for you to be safe!
Kitties are too funny. Cosmo, that's quite a jump! And Tutu, nothing can stop you :-)

speedyrabbit said...

I bet that was Scary Whisky,but at least you're ok.And on the plus side the kitties have a new play thing so its win win for everybody!

meowmeowmans said...

OH! Whisky, we are so glad you are okay, sweet one. It's so good that the Mom put up that gate. And it looks like Tutu, Ling and Cosmo have already figured out various "work arounds." MOL.

Hugs!

BeadedTail said...

Oh poor Whisky! We're so glad she's okay! Seems like the kitties are adjusting alright too so everybody is safe and can still get where they need or want to go! Give Whisky a kiss for us!

Patty Woodland said...

Poor little thing. I'm glad she is OK

Brian said...

I am sure glad you weren't hurt sweet Whisky. The acrocat photos are terrific!

Madi and Mom said...

Whisky thank goodness you are A OK after that tumble and the gate is an excellent fix...well except for the felines are fliers more great action shots too
Hugs madi your BFFF

Kitties Blue said...

So glad Whiskey is okay. There is no gate, fence, barrier that can stymie a cat. They will find some way to breach it. We know, 'cause all of us have done so at one time or another. The humans can even stack one on top of another…easy peasy…were on the other side. MOL! Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

Katie and Glogirly said...

We're glad you're ok.
...and pretty impressed with Cosmo's fence climbing skills!!!

OMG, poor Whisky!! Thanks to you, everything is solved now!! But, as we can see, this little gate won't stop cats, hehehe!!

Awwww poor Whiskey :( so glad your not hurt..... that's a long way for a little girl to fall! Scary for everyone!

Kitties be careful too ;)

Be Safe ~ ♥♥XOXO♥♥

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

I'm so glad little Whisky did not get hurt!

Tutu, darling, you are such a smarty-pants girl! But I would've loved to have see your leap...

Kay said...

Hugs & kisses to Whisky, glad to hear you are fine after the scary accident.

Tutu & gang, keep practicing for the cat-Olympics's high jump!

Katie Isabella said...

Whisky Honey, bless your heart. Thank goodness you were unhurt and what a good demonstration of the fall with your stunt double! You are very clever to have thought of that. Tutu, noting surprises me about your intelligence and ability to think things through. The rest of you, BE CAREFUL that you don't topple backwards and fall youtrselves!

I will come over and see if I can scale it too. Boomie, is our hammick free at the moment? I am firing up my tunnel. XXOO

Sushi said...

Whisky, mom said you're so cute. And i agree. Be careful, okay. You might hurt yourelf. Tutu, you're very smart! =)

ABBY said...

Oh Whisky we are so sorry you had a fall,but we are glad you are OK.
We loved how the kitties made short order out of the gate!

onebluedog said...

That sounds really scary! I'm glad Whisky is okay! And I really love her reenactment with the stunt double :)

Cathy Keisha said...

Whiskey is sooooo adorable. I'm glad she wasn't hurt. TW is glad she didn't get the apartment with the stairs that the realtor showed them before this apartment.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

I would LUFF to come over and practice playing Leapy Cat with you, Tutu.

haopee said...

Poor sweetie. I do hope you didn't get hurt. But I do believe that your fluffiness reduced the impact of the fall. LOL.

Anyway, I just had to laugh at the way your positioned the stuffy.

Clooney said...

Oh thank goodness Whisky is ok, that is a relief for sure, we hope that the gate will keep everyone safe.
