Feline Friday: Gonna Find a Way!

Feline Friday is hosted by Steve, The Burnt Food Dude, and i'm going to believe it's because he likes cats.
Feline Friday is simple to join. All you have to do is..
1) post a picture, drawing, cartoon or video of a cat (They may be silly or cute)
2) go to Steve's page, linked above, then on the menu bar click on the Feline Friday tab to get the code
3) paste the code under your cat picture
4) add your name and link
That’s all there is to it! Be sure to check back every so often and visit all the Feline Friday bloggers. Also, please leave a nice comment on their blogs. Nasty comments will be deleted!

To a cat, a closed door is a challenge!


There's just gotta be a way!

  4. Even if kitty can't open the door himself, bumping it continually will usually get the door open at our house.

  5. Too bad kittens don't know how to knock. Hard to do with soft furry paws.

  8. I closed my bedroom door on Kitty one night. She clawed and clawed until I finally gave up and let her in. I also noticed that she clawed and my carpet at the door and torn it up pretty good. Kitty is a juvenile delinquent.
