Wordless Wednesday – Look Mom, No Hands!

Look Mom No Hands

Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!

Look Mom, No Hands!

When you live with cats, you should never be surprised by anything that they do. They continuously amaze you with their antics. Just when you think you have their routines pegged, they go and change them up on you.

They like to keep you on your toes.

Every now and then, I’ve had a Maine Coon Cat who’s had the acrobat gene in his DNA. First, there was Goliath, who loved to run around the tops of my basement pipes. Then there was Adonis, who loved to walk across the half-inch rails of a former home.

And now there’s Magellan…

Look Mom No Hands 2

Magellan has that same daredevil balance gene in him that he likes to stretch whenever he has the opportunity, but he finds opportunities to do so in his current environment somewhat limited. Of course, when you live with an intelligent and enterprising cat, you learn to expect the unexpected.

So, for the past few days, Magellan has been practicing his jumping and perching skills in unexpected places, like the top of my KitchenAid mixer! (I wonder if, when they quality test those very expensive devices in their labs, they test those beautiful colorful finishes we pay so much money for to ensure that our cats don’t scratch them to pieces!)

Of course, things don’t always go as perfectly as one plans. Thanks to a rather disastrous attempt to land on a very high perch (on which an apparently hidden-from-sight clock radio sat) – we are now the still-in-shock owners of a brand new alarm clock!

    Oh My Gosh, Magellan is very tricky, with paws that dont cling that is a really slippery surface. Lol, they will do anything to give us a heart attack.
    Thanks for hosting!!

    Magellan, you are quite the acrobat! That’s pretty amazing that you can balance on the blender! 🙂

    Thank you for hosting Wordless Wednesday, Ramona.

    What a perch! I love seeing him from the side. What gorgeous markings!!!

    I hope you have a wonderful day Ramona!

  12. That’s some great balance! What a beautiful cat.

  13. So graceful & cute while doing his balancing act!

    Thank you for the linky. I shared a family photo today of my Grandson who just graduated grammar school! ~ sigh ~ They grow up so fast… don’t they? Have a wonderful sunny day!!! I’m off to do errands… first stop oil change!!! Oh and I have a new border at my house. My granddaughter Tatyanna has moved in. Nonny to the rescue I guess. hugs

  16. Melanie says:

    Pretty kitty!! I wonder why he has picked the mixer as his perch! We have 3 kitties and they are quite entertaining….

  17. Shadow says:

    Wow Magellan found a great way to keep up his balancing act.

    Shadow the Kayak Cat
    Sarah the human.

  18. Robin says:

    Magellan is quite the daredevil! It sounds like he is pretty acrobatic too. I have had to buy a few new things due to kitty antics too. According to the cats, we needed new ones anyway. MOL

  19. Jan still remembers when a previous kitty took a flying leap and her windup alarm went flying and crashed into lots of pieces.

  20. Paula Kige says:

    Our cats are hilarious! Enjoyed yours too!

    His balancing skills are indeed very advanced. Impressive.

    I find that Arya is also a bit of daredevil herself. She likes jumping up to high places. 🙂

    Sorry about the linky this week. Not sure what the problem was. Glad you were still able to link up.

  22. indah nuria says:

    they are super talented indeed 🙂

  23. Peyton says:

    I have a 8 year cat that will climb the door frame to get on top of the grandfather clock.

  24. Is your cat a climber? Does he perch on top of doors? or go on the roof? Mine didn’t. In fact, he rarely went in trees. I almost always saw him on the ground.

  25. Kitties Blue says:

    Everyday is a new adventure with eight firkins. As Mom always says, “Cats are predictably unpredictable,” and that’s a motto we like to live by. Angel Steamer was our balancing cat, and Astrid is our leaping cat. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  26. I’m impressed of your skills, Megallan 🙂 Pawkisses for a Happy Day 🙂 <3
