To Climb, or Not to Climb

                                                               . . . . . that is the question:
                                                              Whether 'tis Nobler in the park to suffer
                                                              The Slings and Arrows of outrageous Mockery,
                                                              Or to take Paws against my Sea of cowardice,
                                                              And by ascending tame it: to climb, to seek
                                                              The top; and by this climb, to find the end
                                                              Of faint-heartedness, and the thousand Natural shocks
                                                              That Fur is heir to? 'Tis a consummation
                                                              Devoutly to be wished.


It looks kind of high though. I think I'll just have a nappy instead.

To nap or not to nap.
Tis better to abide in your Hamlet

meowmeowmans said...

We're with you, Spitty! Climbing is nice and all, but to nappy is divine!

Cathy Keisha said...

Don't I remember you're the cat who never climbs up on anything? Or was that pre-surgery? Go ahead, climb the tree. I'll be right behind you. Heh heh.

The Island Cats said...

Go for it, Spitlet.

GLOGIRLY said...

If you go for it, I sure hope you can find your way back down!

Pat Hatt said...

First you have to go up, then you have to come down, way too much work, nap it is.

Climb!

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Marley, and Laz) said...

Awww, look at all those great branches up there ta sit on! Mebbe you could surprise an evil Skwerl...

iLoveSilverMeow said...

No... not happening...i like to stay inside where there's Foodz~

Ivan and Izzy from WMD said...

I bet if Caroline screamed real loud right behind you, you'd be right up there! ::snort::

Sweet Purrfections said...

We have no doubt that you can climb to the top. Our concern is how you'd get down.

Angel Prancer Pie said...

Naw, just mark it with your special sent and go nap in the pink beddie instead!

Summer at sparklecat.com said...

I think I'll stick with my cat tree.

CATachresis said...

I should choose the nap option, buddy, otherwise you might find that in climbing you might catapult off this mortal coil! ;)

Don't worry about the softy thing. I think no one's noticed so far ;)

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Have I ever mentioned that I love your twists on the Bard? I think a nap is a better idea, Spitty, or at least don't go too many branches up...

Star says: Spitty, you are the worlds best footsie warmer and I adore snuggling with you! You can share my butterfly quilt anytime you want, purrrrrrrr

Marg said...

Oh Spitty, that looks way too high. A nap is a much better idea. But a great picture and good writing. Take care.

Katie Isabella said...

NAP! Otherwise you might hurt yourself and the collective moans from all the ladycats in the Country would cause an earthslide...somewhere! xox

Brian said...

Give it a good scratching first Spiity, then decide!

Climbing! Absolutely - to climb on a tree is one of my greatest wishes :o)

Seville at Nerissa's Life said...

Is this a vote? If so, I vote for climbin'. I'm still bein' told by ol' peepers to not be climbin' any trees so I would like to climb this, vicariously, through you. Okay?

Purrs,
Nissy

Unknown said...

Dearest Spitty,
There is ONE big problem with climbing THAT kind of tree....
SAP
It takes forever to cleans it out of your paws and claws!

Cat and DOG Chat With Caren said...


Whoa!! That is waaaaaaaaaaay too tall to climb!!!! How in the world would you ever get BACK DOWN!?

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Best not to nap under all those branches, Spitty. Birdies like to sit on branches and they aren't litter box trained!

Kitties Blue said...

Spitty…we know you are a totally inside cat, so unless that tree sprung out of your living room floor, we know you're going to be napping. It does look like quite the challenge and may require some extra sit-ups and stretches if it is your desire to tackle this. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

Oh Spitty that looks like a great challenge and we bet you can do it all the way to the top but, your human may not approve. Especially if she has to get you down.

Unknown said...

I once tried climbing a tree, i ran into it a few times, climbed up a little then fell off, never again!!!
Love Milo :)

Pees- I'm pretty sure you is a much better climber than me!!!!!

Jacqueline said...

Wow, what a huge tree!...Good decision, Spitty=sweet dreams of US, handsome boy!!...Happy Wednesday!...kisses...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

Go for it Spitty! You will have a great view from up there and it is easy to do. The harder part is coming back down.

Misaki @ misadventuresofMisaki said...

I think you should go for it!

bethany925 said...

oh! Spitty! I has been trapped - TRAPPED inside an empty house and just now was released from the torments of loneliness to see just HOW MUCH I MISSED you. O! My Bard! such a lubberly soliloquy! I can only mew this in response, my favorite line o' teh Fair OFelinia:

"He hath, my lord, of late made many Tenders Vittles
Of his affection to me."

She didn't ever get to say much in that play, that poor OFelinia, I noticed, so it's the best I gots. Always reminds me o' you, tho...
