It's a Hard Life

On various forums I’ve seen discussions about whether to place nature/seasonal tables high, out of the reach of little hands.  In this house our display is on the windowsill of the dining room which we use, typically not for dining, but for home ed purposes, and our problem is not one of little hands, oh no, we have cats who seem to think that the various things we keep on the windowsill are simply to aid them in sleeping in ridiculous positions.  I regularly have to pick various things up from the floor and re-arrange the window sill.

      Yes, we have (another) one like that. He’s usually out at night now (due to the warm weather) but when he’s in he will come up and scratch at the bedroom door to be let out in the middle of the night (this is John’s job). He has even done this when there’s perfectly capable teenagers downstairs (and in the morning when other people are up) I think it may have something to do with him wanting John to open the door for him. Strange animal.

    I do sometimes wonder that, Lisa. I have had to rescue snails, ladybirds and the like from jars in the past too.Just along the window sill is a vase full of feathers that the children find when we’re out walking, the cats like to spread them around over the floor *sigh*.

    Haha great photos! I am having a similar issue this Autumn. Our kitten is enjoying chewing on and playing with all of my lovely decorations. I think I’m going to have to relocate it upstairs where he doesn’t have access!
