Climbing Up the Tree of Pain

Climbing Up the Tree of Pain

The Tree of Pain was the very first cat tree that came into La Casa Keisha. I named it to reflect how much pain I like to inflict upon TW. If'n she plays or teases me while I'm up on this tree, I will make her pay with both my sharp teeth and claws. I love my ToP. It's a great place to whap rockets down in mid-air or I can just lay here and look out the window.

Today's Foto Frenzied look down memory lane features the ToP in some never-before seen fotos. Let's begin.

Circa March 2010
Some of my favorite fotos are part of this long 16-shot session and this dramatic foto is one of the best. I thought I was playing rockets with TW but she was just teasing me to get some good action fotos. I could be reaching for her hand but more likely I'm attempting to corral some rockets. She was after some action shots and she got a good one except that you can't see my paw or the rocket.

First I want to send healing purrz and good wishes to Flynn as he recovers from his latest health scare. This foto was the middle one out of three of me climbing my Tree of Pain. The first shows me on the bottom perch looking up and in the last I'm on the window sill which was my final destination. TW chose not to use flash in the middle of the night so it's very grainy. You can still see what a muscular cat I am. I used to always scurry up the ToP by climbing the sisal. The peeps loved how I did it and was always trying to get fotos or video. This is probably the closest they got. Of course, the other story is that I'm pole dancing. HAH! Start throwing those Georges, Benjamins and Andrews at me!

Circa 2011
Those Tabbies caught me in bed with HHGutt. Oh, the humiliation! Oh, the fuzziness. Oh, the comfortable backrest. Heh heh! Those were the days when I had my own soft pillow on TW's my bed to lay on. Do you know TW stopped letting me lay on the pillow after I got my first coughing asthma attack cos she's "superstitious." STUPIDstitious is more like it. It's not all bad cos the bed has a pillowtop mattress. TW loves catching me and HHGutt together on the bed. Whatever floats her boat as long as she doesn't try to blackmail me.

We still have a bunch of numbers left so if you haven't seen your name come up, it will unless we've already used the foto. TW's bookkeeping is quite sloppy but we know if a foto has been used cos we have a file ending with FF on the computer. See you Saturday for the Art Blog Hop.

Do you have a favorite piece of blog furniture and can I have it what is it?

I love to play on our tree too, but I never do anything to hurt my human. If I get a little wild, she does remind me to "be gentle"... not that I necessarily listen!

You've got a cute little figure in that second picture, CK! Mudpie's favorite piece of furniture is her Kat Kabin. She snuggles up in there even when it's hot!

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

Thank you for your good wishes. I feel so much better for seeing you pole dance for me.

We like those action shots, CK.

You are very muscular CK. I like all these photos :)

Brian said...

MOL at Flynn's comment! Those are good ones CK!

Shoko Neilson said...

Hey I like to see your paw dancing across the pole....kinda chillaxing. I am dying to see picture # 5 and picture 26.

#927 is a great shot, CK! My kitties like to rotate between favorites. It's one thing one week, then a different thing the next week. I can't keep up!

meowmeowmans said...

Excellent frenzied fotos, CK! We always enjoy seeing you on that Tree of Pain. And for those who have only seen fotos, the TOP is even more amazing in person. :)

Zoe's favorite furniture is the infinity scratcher. Gracie loves "human" furniture best.

How about these numbers? 303, 2367 and 1112

I LOVE the first photo, CK! You remind me so much of Katie when she gets playful.

Happy Labor Day weekend!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

I love the first one because you look so happy!

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

You're such a gorgeous girl ... which of course, you already know. I love these shots of you being "tough" ... Bear loves to dive bomb me from the perches of his cat tree if I try to squeeze back in "his" corner to retrieve stuck toys :p

Kitties Blue said...

Those Trout Talkin' Tabbies certainly have their numbers selected often. We'll throw a couple more at you: #1010 and #2020. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
