Those who have followed our cats for any length of time knows that Whitey is the Spider-cat: he loves heights, and generally never falls off his chosen perch once ascended. (We've chosen to ignore a certain unfortunate incident in 2014
-- at least he did execute a good landing that day.)
However, the younger generation does have its own spider-cat talents, doing something even Whitey has never tried:
|Coach Penwiper ready to ride the exercise bike with me|
My coach checks me on almost everyday I ride. A few times when he's seemed interested I've boosted him up there, but usually only to where his hind paws are on the reading ledge of the front side of the console. But I didn't help him today -- I wasn't even near the bike when he hoisted himself.
If that looks hard, it's because it is; that console is about an inch wide, and curved. Without the paw on the handle bar, even he would tip over.
