When Daddy walked in the door, shortly after noon, lugging this huge tan...thing, well, I hid under the bed, watched, and waited to see just what the hell he was gonna do with it.
Oh, I had figured out it was the Tower, alright, but it was soo HUGE!
Almost as tall as he is!
So Daddy goes and moves his desk, and a bookshelf enough to find a place against the wall for the Tower and stands it up.
After he sits on the couch I come out of hiding to go take a very, very careful look.
So I tiptoe over to the desk, leap up next to the thing, and take a sniff.
But what's with all the holes in it?
Since Daddy wasn't sayin' there was nothing for it but to figure out the mystery for myself.
I was torn between getting on the floor, and checking out the lowest hole, but eventually leaned out to try to look inside the second one.
It was then that I made a discovery...
If I didn't want to lose one of my nine lives I'd better get a grip on my balance!
Oh, and it looked like you could go from level 1 to level 2, then to level 3 and higher...from inside!
You mean I didn't have to leap to the top from outside? Unless I wanted to, of course.
This was getting interesting.
Is there an echo in here, or is it just me?
Man, it's roomy in there.
There's enough room for me to turn around, the floor on levels 2, 3, and 4 has enough space for me to sit, or lay down and the holes in floors of level 2, 3, 4 and the roof are large enough for me to get through.
The view from level 4 and the roof is AMAZING!
I didn't feel dizzy, or have a problem with the height at all.
All this exploring was hard work, tiring me out real good so I decided to take a nap... on the first floor.
Later in the day I twice went to the roof for my naps, I love the view so much. ;-D
Daddy has a story to tell about getting the Tower home that explains that piece of paper near the roof in the last picture (Daddy DOES have a sense of humor, hee, hee!)
It took 3 busses for the journey from the Petco in Fountain Valley.
I had to walk a short distance to each bus stop, then a block home, so I got a work out. ;-D
Had a little fun on the busses.
Nikita has long defended the Noble Lineage of a certain word as to its centuries old designation in relation to Felines, from the vulgarians of the modern World, even pointing out information, and articles, related to this debate found online.
On each of the busses the driver, or some passengers, asked me what this thing was that I was lugging around.
As I dragged the thing down the isle to the back of each bus I looked around, smiled sweetly, and replied:
"It's a Pussy Palace for my Nikita! The things I do for my pal, I swear!" ;-D
"Cat Tower" is just so boring a name for these things, and if I am paying a small fortune for it ($127 - $42 off the regular price!) I can call it what it truly is. ;-D
As Lou Costello used to say... "I'm a baaad boy!" ;-D
As a result of this bit of humor I found myself chatting with several Cat lovers on the busses, including a homeless guy, and an elderly black lady with 4 Cats of her own. ;-D
So there ya go!
For 1 photo only, the sign, if you can read it, says...The Pussy Palace at Nikita's Place.
I like the sound of that, I really do. ;-D
Good night, and pleasant dreams! ;-D
