Dora is very good at climbing for her age (she’ll be five months old on Christmas Day). I blame John for having so many climbing/mountaineering pictures up in the house – I think they may have been giving her ideas. John thinks Bonington would have been a good name for her (after his all-time climbing hero).
She is very good at balancing on the top of her scratching post, but this isn’t much of a challenge for her…
…climbing on top of the kitchen door is much more fun, although it leads to lots of shouting of “Dora! Get down!” and screaming if she decides to jump on a hapless human from above.
She has also developed a new enthusiasm for carrying objects around the house. I keep coming home and finding that something which was downstairs in the living room is now upstairs on the spare bed, or that something which was in our bedroom is now downstairs in the kitchen, or that there are a bunch of cat toys halfway up the stairs…she must be very busy all day moving stuff around! I am off work sick tomorrow (terrible cold/flu, possibly swine flu apparently) so I am hoping she will want to do some snuggling rather than playing THoE around the house all day!
