We had been worried about leaving the kittens alone for a long weekend -- we weren't sure what we would find when we returned! Well... the kittens were nowhere to be seen. The food had hardly been touched and there was still plenty of water in the dish.
Then we heard a tiny "mew" and found them. They were on the top kitchen shelf. Our cabin is a bit rough and unfinished in places -- they were able to sneak up the attic stairs and over the kitchen wall. This shelf is about 7.5 feet off the ground! There's no telling how long they had been up there, and unable to find their way down. After we helped them down, they figured it out quickly enough, so we had to block the stairway so they couldn't get up there any more. (Especially as this is where I store my teapot collection!)
Oh, and here's an idea of what I've been going through the last couple of weeks while trying to process my pictures. (Not my kitten, but you get the idea -- oh and multiply that by two!) Thanks to TedTam over at LST for the link!
