The cat tree

This morning, Jason and I were tidying the bedroom, when Tigger came in meowing insistently. She was not to be ignored; she was most definitely trying to get our attention.

"What is it Tigs?"

We followed her to the living room where she ran over to the cat tree, and looked at us, meowing very insistently - getting louder if possible. There, at the top of the cat tree, sat Stephen with Tigger's cat toy. He was looking enormously pleased with himself. The top level is about five feet.

The cat tree really wasn't made to hold 30+ lbs on the top level, so we got him down pretty quickly. Within five minutes of getting him down, Tigger was on top of the cat tree, her paw possessively over her mouse, and she was glaring at Stephen. Stephen just laughed.

I wish I'd taken a picture.

Brilliant! (I'm speaking for the cat, here)

Absolutely - we were very impressed with Tigger. Although I'm fairly confident that Tigger's motivation was more territorial rather than concern over safety of the child :P

But she is a mama herself and she does occasionally try to parent the kids, so I wouldn't put it past her.

I love how Tigger is just one more child coming to let Mom and Dad know that a siblings is taking toys.

*sibling, singular.

Heh, yeah. We've got four kids - two of them have fur :P

Although there is a tiny possibility that she was actually concerned about Stephen. She has been known to parent him before.

Tigger is obviously smarter than you all, you're very lucky to have her.
Looks like you got yourself another climbing athlete. :D

Tigger is brilliant. She taught the kids cat manners - it was awesome.

Yeah, his climbing surprised me really - he's my cautious child.

Was also thinking how awesome it is to have a family funny story to tell about Stephen for the rest of his life about the time the cat snitched on him.
I'm so glad you are raising kids with your kitties. :)

I think it's so important to have kids around animals at a young age!

It totally is for multiple reasons that make your children more well rounded empathic adults.
That's why I can't understand people like my Tig's previous owners who gave him and his brother up for adoption because they were expecting a child.
Trust me cats are far easier to look after than children, after just a day and a half with Chloe I was practically relaxing working with the over nine hundred cats. ;)
