The Friday Flashback

The Friday Flashback this week comes from August 2008 and is called:

WHEN WE WERE YOUNG.

These are old photos that mum took with her non digital camera. We have always liked climbing ladders. This one didn't seem to go anywhere though.
When we got up there we just had to come back down again.

We like step ladders too. They are good for lying on when your dad wants to stand on them to cut the hedge.

And good for practising your acrobatics too.

And why bother with the steps when there is a straight side you can climb up?

When we had finished climbing, we would always have a rassle.

Or sometimes we would climb into the hedge and go up through the middle to sit on the top. This is a very good place for snoopervising as we are about nine feet up.
We are nearly two years old in these photos except the last one in which we were 14 months old.

Glogirly and Katie said...

Wow! You guys are a couple of thrill-seekers!!! Either that or you used to moonlight as painters.

Thanks for coming by my blog today! Glogirly has been "busy" lately and has made it all but impossible for me to visit my friends and fans. But I'm hovering over her shoulder now. ...it's the least she can do to make up for my V-E-T visit.

mew!

The ladder looks like fun! We used to have a short step-ladder in the living room but it wasn't much of a challenge to climb. The steps were good for sleeping on, though...

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

We loved these old pics. Yoo look so cute on that hedge. Is that the hedge that was replaced by the purrizon fence?

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

As always, love your adventures since we are inside kitties only. We think Ladder Climbing should be an Olympic event next year! Our mewmie said she once saw a "cat tree" that was an oak and brass ladder with canvas hammocks in the middle and ever since then, she keeps wanting to make one out of a plain old wooden ladder and paint it up cute and make hammock in the middle...you two would enjoy something like that too we think!

The Very Best Cats said...

What a great post. I love your photos and descriptions.
Motor says: we are going to ask Mom to get us a ladder too. It looks like so much fun!

Anita said...

You will be forever young, muahahahaha!

The Furry Bambinos said...

Those are fabulous photos! You two really are very acrobatic! Those photos should be entered in the Summer Cat-O-Lympics for gymnastics!

Thank you for attending Cookie and Caramel's Coming-Out Party! We had a great time and it was great to see so many friends!
