A cat with no balance

Cats may have nine lives but my niece, Darci’s cat is really pushing his luck.

Texas the kitten

Texas as a kitten

Have you heard of a cat with no balance? I was about to comment on Texas (the cat) and how he seems to love his scratching post tree, when he rolled over on his back, looked at me, stretched and rolled straight off the tree, smacking the wall and landing on the floor. He got up looking perplexed and shook himself off.

I was trying not to laugh but Texas was okay. I say, “Did you see that, Texas just fell right off there.”

My sister then says, “He seems to have no balance. He’s doing stuff like that all the time.” Apparently he will be sunning himself and fall off window ledges, down the stairs and while playing, but isn’t wobbly on his feet when he walks and loves to play. Let’s just hope he doesn’t get outside and climb a real tree.

I wondered if he had an ear infection or something but they assure me it’s just him. He’s the cutest little cat – don’t you think?

Sorry, Texas (and family) but I do prefer dogs. You can’t take a cat out for a run like a dog and cats definitely love themselves more than you.

For health and fitness I’ll go a dog anytime. Health wise I’ve got to say I didn’t think I was allergic to cats but after the visit I sneezed all the way home, had an itchy nose and runny eyes. My hubby, so brightly said, “It’s the cat.” Yep, I think so. Two Sudafed and I’m all good today.

Another point Mahli doesn’t make me sneeze. Though when I do sneeze abruptly she jumps in freight. Nearly as funny as Texas falling of her tree.

Seriously though, if you have a cat and have the balance problem thing, let me know in case there’s something Darci needs to know for Texas.

I love pets!
