Curiosity kills the Cat?



Thankfully, Groenemeyer did not get killed last week! I saw him way up in the tree and grabbed the camera, then sure enough, he wandered onto a loose branch and fell....down .... down... down... and - walked away, while his sister watched him from a secure place on the ground!
Zum Glueck hat Groenemeyer sich letzte Woche nichts getan! Ich sah ihn hoch oben im Baum u habe schnell die Kamera gegriffen, und dann ist er tatsaechlich auf einen losen Ast und hinuntergefallen, dann weitergelaufen. Seine Schwester hat ihn die ganze Zeit von einer sicheren Position am Boden beobachtet.

Well, here where I live, the old saying is that a cat has 9 lives. So he just lost one of those. Now he has 8. Nice photograph. Love the bottom picture.

la deuxième photo (le chat sous le vêtement ? ;o) ) est magnifique, il est adorable, une vraie carte postale.
Je crois que les chats sont vraiment trop curieux et que cela peut les tuer.

The second photo (the cat under the robe? ;O)) is magnificent, it is lovely, a real postcard.
I think that cats are just too curious and that it can kill them.

The place in which you live looks as if it is out of a storybook. Lovely!

I guess cats are supposed to always land on their feet! That's quite an action shot and the one of the other cat looking on is just adorable!

I suppose daring is what gets many squirrels killed as well. Imagine walking a tightrope over the road everyday while cars speed by beneath.

I'm glad Groenemeyer had a safe landing. Maybe his sister has learned something from the experience as well. We can always hope.

The photos tell a great story.

Haha!!! What funny pictures, great shots! You have a quick camera! Silly kitten!

Wanda said...

Oh what darling pictures. I wonder which life this little kitten is on...I agree with Abe, it probably has 8 left!!

I've heard of cats who liked to jump off second story roofs (they lived in the mountains so the roof was close to the ground on one side and 2 stories off the ground on the other) and pretend they were sailing. They tried to stop her, but cats are good at relaxing and taking falls well. Thanks heavens!

Tolle Bilder! Ich glaube, Du hast die Kamera auch immer griffereit da liegen, oder? Ich habe eine ganz minikleine von Sony, die habe ich seit Mai 2006 und seitdem immer dabei,die passt in die kleinste Handtasche.
Wenn ich in meinen Kommentaren richtig geguckt hätte, hätte ich auch gemerkt,dass das"i" ein "i" ist und kein "l". (Mir könnte man wohl auch ein "x"für ein "u" vormachen!?):) Ich wusste nur nicht, dass Gudi jetzt auch einen blog hat, und von daher dachte ich, das wärst Du gewesen.
Einen schönen Abend noch, liebe Grüße, Monika

Oh My Gosh, He is one lucky cat.
The picture of his sister under the cardboard (?) is priceless.

Thank goodness he is okay! And that he allowed you to capture such a great shot!

I love the second picture of the more timid sister watching that daring brother of hers!
