Tonight I was in the kitchen making dinner. Having conversations across the house with family members, and then I heard a noise. It sounded like a box falling down from somewhere. When I called out “what was that??”, I got the reply
“The cat fell down the clothes chute!!”
What the what??!?
Sure enough, my dear Luna, who is a bit crazy and inquisitive at her tender age of 2 years old, went for a ride down the chute!! Here is the clothes chute door, up on the 2nd floor of our house.
Luna loooooves to jump up on the clothes chute opening the second we open the little door to throw our clothes down. She sticks her head in the hole as far as it will safely go, to figure out where the clothes are going. As much as we discourage her from jumping up there, she manages to sneak past us. She was perched up there, and we even told my son to not touch her (which we thought might scare her). He can’t blamed, he was no where in sight when the “incident” happened.
Alan was there… and he approached Luna in an effort to persuade her to jump down. In a slow motion type video, Alan reached his arms out and the cat slipped a little too far (head first….) and down she went. The noise I heard can only be imagined as the cat feebly trying to stop herself from speeding down the tube hopelessly with her claws!! OMG.
Unfortunately, it was laundry day on Sunday so there was barely a soft landing for her. But *fortunately*, Luna was just fine when she was retrieved from the laundry cabinet on the ground floor.
Happy, live, kitty!
In fact, when we opened the clothes chute again, she thought long and hard about it, and decided that she wouldn’t jump up there to investigate again.
Wow, never a dull moment.
Q: If you have a cat, is it inquisitive?
Luna also looooooves the ice cube maker. She comes speeding as fast as possible to be right next to the fridge when she hears the ice clunking. She also LOVES the vacuum cleaner. She just hangs out and watches it while we sweep.
Q: Do you have a clothes chute in your house?
