Out on a Limb and Over My Head

October rolls onward, with long hours every weekend... hence the spotty posting. I'm holding down the fort pretty well, but some of us are out on a limb:

That's my co-worker Ginger, who likes to climb, but loses interest fairly rapidly. In this instance, she climbed onto a tree limb which was just a little too high for her comfort, then she wanted down in a big way. I stood underneath the tree coaxing her to jump into my arms, but she wasn't having any of that.

I had to walk off, much to her dismay (she's ordinarily very vocal, and she cried piteously while I walked off, leaving her stuck on the limb), in order to find a plank that was big enough for her to feel secure jumping down onto. I wasn't gone too long, and she was able to make her way down to terra firma with a minimum of fuss afterwards. Hopefully, any problems this month will be remedied with such ease!

Welcome back to earth, Ginger!

Yeah, yesterday, it took a long time to lure her into the place where she was going to be locked in when the crowds came. It was an effort. Her brother is a lot easier to handle.

So how many cats starve to death in trees?

Plenty of birdies and buggies and squirbles to eat!
