Chimney's Aren't Just For Santa Anymore!

Always keep your eyes to the skies kitties!
I really, really, really got into big trouble this weekend.
I decided to go exploring. Without permission.
On our roof. And Chimney. It rocked!
Daddy and I were deck chillaxin' and quick as a flash I got the urge to climb...
so up, up and away I went! I can be pretty swift when I wanna' be!

Try to imagine me on the top of that chimney. You can see lots of stuff from that high up!
(and yes, that is Santa's Sleigh - he leaves it here all year!)

Here's an old photo of the back of our home to give you perspective.

Here's my route - railing, taller railing, low roof, tall roof, chimney...
Easy Peazey!



Here's another photo of our deck (pre-chicken wire) for perspective.

Daddy had to climb up to the roof to catch, er, ah, I mean rescue me. It was quite dramatic for both Mommy and Daddy, for some reason, they don't think I belong on the roof.

There are no actual photos of me getting caught, er ah, I mean rescued. The 'rents were both too worried about getting me down than getting the camera. I fear I am grounded unless both Mommy AND Daddy are on the deck together.

I just can;t get past my momma and dadda let alone onto the roof.. woah!! The things you could see and smell MMMmmmmmm
Plus it is much fun being the center of attention no matter what the excuse :)

catsynth said...

Wow, that's really high up. Of course we know cats are quite adept at high places (like Luna on our upstairs ledge). But still, be careful :)

Tracey and Huffle said...

You know Parker, every time I climb up on the back fence dad comes and "rescues" me too! Don't they trust us?

Oh my goodness Parker! We can see why your humans were worried. Please be careful - we wouldn't want you to get hurt!

Pablo said...

Kudos, Parker, kudos.

Gandalf and Grayson said...

Parents... What's the big deal. You had an adventure. You're fine. Everybody's happy.

Milo said...

Parker,

That sounded an amazing adventure. I'm in awe of you.

My Mom told me that her previous lilac Point Siamese cat, Henry (1985 - 2004)once climbed on the roof and then fell down the chimney. He arrived in the hearth covered in soot and was so black she didn't even recognise him until he miaowed. He wasn't hurt but he was very dirty and he hated having a bath but there was no option.

So climbing on a roof could be dangerous; be very careful next time!

Dearest Parker,
WOW!!! How very dramatical! Wasn't you the least bit skeert? Dang...you are one brave womans. And, DANG! You must be very important to have Santa Claws park his sleigh on your roof!

Very truly yours,

:::YIKES::::

Way up there????

Well I can understand why your Mom and Dad were so worried, and your Dad climbed all the way up there to 'rescue' you! Wowie...Ping used to love to climb up on top of our roof when he was allowed outside. One time he was up on the roof when Momma came home around 10 o'dark thirty and she had to talk him off of the roof. You should've seen that! Guess what? She finally convince him to jump into the tall hedge where she grabbed him and brought him in. Ping has been the adventurer in our family!

What an exciting adventure Parker. We can't get on our roof except for the time dad was working on it and we climbed the big ladder.We wish we could have got up there with you.

-d ma said...

that is an ultra cool lookin chimney but i think your mom and dad may be right... i'd stay away.

Tybalt said...

Parker, you are quite the adventuress! My mommy said that was very scary, but I think it sounded great! Why wouldn't a kitty belong on the roof?

The Island Cats said...

Whoa, Parker! You are quite the monkey climbing all the way up there! Did you get a chance to check out Santa's sleigh???

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

Daisy said...

What an exciting adventure you had, Parker! Could you see lots of interesting things from way up there? Just be careful!

Pearl C. Pritchard said...

You are crazy brave, girlie!!! Let me add my hearty congrats along with Kaze L & C for freaking out the beans. Bwhahahah.

Princess said...

Oooh I am so envious of you. climbing is so much fun, exploring is sooo sooo much fun!
Be careful sweetie!

I love how you have Santa's sleigh on your roof. Now I know where he parks it!

wow! you are adventurous aren't you! very brave. be careful tho.

maybe your beans can climb with you next time then you can explore and be safe.

Kellykat said...

Dang Parker that was very brave of you. Sometimes Scotchy gets up on top of the roof too. She climbs up the porch railing and then onto the covering for the porch and then on up to the roof. Meowmy thinks that she has to be rescued but truth be told she does it all the time with out any help.

Forty Paws said...

Dood. We see how you are now grounded. Bummer.

Why does your Santa sleigh stay up year round? Do you expect him to show up in July?

Parker we hope you aren't grounded for life like Mao.
That was an awesome adventure. Sometimes a cat just gets the urge to 'splore.

Tesla said...

Furkidsmom said...

Does Santa come to your house often? Do you have a special "in" with him? Not that we're ever bad and need special influence with Santa or anything..................

Marian said...

Parker - How brave of you. Tom and Phoebe don't climb like that, but Trixie did crawl out of the Big Boy's second-floor window onto the roof once. Thank goodness she was back inside before Crazy Lady ever found out about it. She would have died right there on the spot!!
:o) Thomas, Phoebe and Trixie

Derby said...

Parker what a daring young lady you are!

Chesney Cats said...

Oh Parker, that sounds like quite an adventure!! We hope you still get to go out after that....

Hugs & Purrs,

GRRRETA said...

What an adventure! I'm sorry you're grounded, but I bet it was so worth it. That is very cool that Santa stores his sleigh on your roof. Did you get a chance to see if he left some kitty toys in it?

Karen Jo said...

You are quite a climber/jumper to get up that high, Parker. I can see why your folks freaked and grounded you. I think it's really cool that Santa parks his sleigh on your roof year round. I'm glad you didn't fall in the chimney. That wouldn't have been good at all.

Jen said...

LOL! That's hilarious! We used to let our cats play outside in our fenced in yard, until a neighbor stopped by to tell us that one of our cats was on the next door neighbor's roof. Now the cats don't get to go outside and play in the backyard unattended anymore.

Auntie Parker, I love gettin up on the chimbly too. Only I have a ladder ta climb up an down, which makes it a lot easier!
