More On Top of Doors!!! (Mancat Monday)

Starbuck is obsessed with doors: climbing them, jumping up onto them, scratching at the top of them and generally being as high as he can get! These photos were taken of Starbuck as he first walked past me on the dining room cupboards towards the door.


He then anticipates his next move while checking out the kitchen door incase it opens and he gets to run in illegally!


One more quick look to his left and then he jumps and lands on top of the dining room door.


"Yay! I'm up! Now I can really see what's going on below me! Especially the kitchen door!!!"


After a little exploring to find a comfy place to settle...


He changes his mind and gets ready to jump down! (his left ear looks really weird... who knows why!)

"Ah... that was boring! On to more exciting things!"



I think that Starbuck's spots will look strange in photos because of the flash: I guess it reflects off the spots giving them more light and not the dark contrast that they are in reality! I'll keep trying to hone my photography skills to get some better shots of him soon!

Those are great photos of you, Starbuck! You really like getting high. :) I like to get high too - sadly, none of our doors are in places that I can easily reach.

I like climbing too! I tagged you for a Meme. Check out my site for details!

Jumping is so much fun! Leaping around is something I am very skilled at but I've never walked across a door...just door trim.

I wish I knew how to get on top of doors like that! I love to climb high, but I can't get on top of doors. I like to climb around on top of the bed canopy and on the stair banister. My Mommie does not like me doing that, though.

Does Starbuck ever jump on you when he is up high? Looks like he is always waiting for an opportunity to go places he shouldn't :)

That one of you on top of the door is a lot like Daisy's high wire act.

Those shots are great! What an acrobat Starbuck is - balancing on doors.... And he is very beautiful!

Starbuck and Torrey said...

Thank you! I have to go check out Daisy's balancing act. Sounds like fun! Mickey, he has never jumped on me... well, not yet! I've opened the door a couple of times and he's swung with it - gripping on for dear life =)

Look at you all climbing. That's a great thing. We don't have that much to climb.

Starbuck's fur looks very similar to Tanjiro's. I just love Starbuck's interlocking bands on his tail.
