Ever since she was a kitten, Tabby has dreamed of being a mountain climber. Today she successfully completed a test run of the sofa in her living room.
"I’m really proud her," said climbing coach Elizabeth Waters. ”This is the tallest piece of furniture she’s climbed yet.”
Though the climb only took her about 7 minutes, the effort seemed to wipe her out, and the cat celebrated her victory over the heights by promptly napping on the top cushion. That doesn’t bode well for tackling any actual mountains.
"We still need to work on Tabby’s endurance," Waters admitted. "I’m not sure how she’ll fare in the thin mountain air."
