Busted

Ha! Mom will have to apologise to the other type of human for suspecting him falsely the other day. I am, after all, Señorita Escapista! Please remember that I'm available for tutorials on escapism. Charges are affordable!
Here's the official
"How to" guide to escapism.

Step one: Looking.
Step two: Measuring.
Step three: Pull-up.
Note the "back-up tail", swung around the curtain for extra hold. The pull-up to the tilted window requires some strength and you might have to paw the window with your hind paws quite a bit to really get up and through there. At this point mom jumped to pull me out of the tilted window, so I can't show step four which involves the actual escape into freedom.
Mom is amazed at how slender I am under my floof. The problem is, she can't open the window for fresh air anymore 'cos she's convinced I could get deaded in the tilted window. Silly mom! Of course I wouldn't!
Purrs, Siena

You are a very good escaper. I am impressed with the tail action.

LizzyBean said...

Siena, what skill you have! The tail wrap is very impressive!

We have a similar story about not believing the other type of human. One night I awoke to a flooded bathroom and the water was running in the faucet and spilling over; who knew how long! Our cat Monger liked to drink out of the faucet so I assumed my hub turned on the water and went to back bed (our sinks are poorly designed and have no overflow.) Naturally I was furious and woke him up to accuse him. He insisted he did not do this and suggested the cat turned the water on -- to which I replied: yeah, right. A day or two later, I happened to come upon Monger just as he was turning the faucet on -- he had figured out how to do it so he could help himself to a drink! So, I had to apologize to the hub for suspecting him, tho it is SO totally something he would do. I'm still not totally convinced they weren't in cahoots on this.....
My internet connection is not working properly which is why I haven't been posting much. Someone is supposed to come and work on he line tomorrow. Thanks for your Happy Mother's Day wishes; it WAS sunny yesterday (yay) and I worked in my garden a bit, but today it is pouring down rain again. I guess we will be wishing we had this in July and August when it is so hot and not a drop in sight, but right now I've had enough!! Have a great day!

Your a master escapist, Siena!!

Guess it's better to be safe than sorry. We'd hate if you got deaded in the tilted window!

Siena, I'm so impressed with your skills! I once dug a secret tunnel out from the terrace at our Summer House. The Woman noticed me being "too quiet" and sent the Man out to find me. That was soooo much fun!

Elin said...

Oh Siena...doesn't your mom know that where there's a will, there's a way...you'll just have to find another way to escape now...next chapter...new mission...the siena saga continues

The Island Cats said...

Wow, Siena...such technique! We are impressed!

Tom, Tama-Chan and Sei-Chan said...

Hee hee Hee. You are GOOD, Siena!!!! Maybe the only solution to the open window problem is to put netting on it from the outside.... We have netting on all windows that are opened...

Purrs,
Tama-Chan and Sei-Chan (and Tmmy too!)

Marlene said...

Thank you for the tutorial, Siena. Very impressive :) I'm going to make sure that 9 and Chani do not watch you because they might get ideas!

Angel said...

Thanks for the tutorial. We don'ts gots windows like that, though. Love that tail action!

Eric and Flynn said...

Wow! You are a regular Houdini aren't you Siena. Well done!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

hahaha! You are so good, Siena!

Gandalf and Grayson said...

Siena, you are one determined ladycat!

We have screens on all our windows, but once Gandalf leaped right through the screen at an intruder tom cat! Mom freaked out and wouldn't open any windows for a very long time after that one.

Cezar and Léia said...

Hello again dear Siena and Chilli

I left in my blog the "Proximity" Award for you!
You can take it there as you wish!

Tristan and Crikey said...

You use your tail just like a monkey would! We've never seen anything like it!

the casbah kitten/inside the casbah said...

Wow! You could do a circus act! That's really cool....but too bad you got busted.

Mishkat said...

We had a feeling the "other human" had been falsely accused! But we do hope your mom can find a screen to put in that window - one that you can't push out! - so she, and you, can get some fresh air.

Monica the Garden Faerie said...

Siena, HA! Hoomins are so silly in everything they think we can't do! I love your prehensile tail! ~ Fiona

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

You are such an inspiration Siena!!!

I am posting my Grand Escape tomorrow!

Laila and Minchie said...

Good try Siena!

VampyVictor said...

Miss Siena, you are a cheeky little Miss! I am sorry but Mushka and Victor were unable to visit you today because I don't want them knowing your tricks.
It's only today though, after all, I know they and I certainly could not resist your little charms even if there is a little sassiness in there :))
The Momma :)

Cory said...

I had to sign a waiver before my mom would let me see your post today. Write 50 times, I will not learn too much from Siena...I will not squish myself through tiny openings to escape...

I'm pretty impressed by your skill!

The Monkeys said...

You're the master at escaping, Siena! Do be careful, though. We wouldn't want you deaded either!

Misha said...

Prison break on level 1!

Fin said...

Wow LSIF, standing ovation over here!!

BeadedTail said...

Great technique Siena! I've only seen monkeys use their tails like that - didn't know cats had that talent too! It's a good thing your mom stopped your escape so you don't get deaded or hurt. We could not handle anything happening to you.

Sweet Praline said...

Siena, I think you win the prize for escapism! However, I am very glad your mom discovered your expertise. We don't want you to get hurt.

Tuck said...

You are very brave Siena! That is a daring escape and it looks dangerous too! I think it's probably for the best if the window stays closed. All the kitties on the CB want you to stay safe!!

Rufus Raves said...

Impressive maneuvering!

Luna said...

Wow, Siena,that is a great escape tutorial...mom always forget to close the windows, maybe we can try that too.
But be careful...it is possible that you can be trapped and pinched in that window...

Es gibt Gitter zu einklemmen gegen kleine ausreißer, z.B.bei Fressnapf.
Meine Freundin hat so etwas eingebaut.
500 Korn Catnip sind viel. Vielleicht hätte ich dir besser eine fertige Pflanze schicken sollen...
Liebe Grüße
Stefanie

Forever Foster said...

I salute you, Master Siena!

milocat said...

Might be danger mouse - whoops we mean dangerous, to do dat tho. We can understand your mom protecting you 'cos you are preshus.

The Crew said...

You certainly are talented!

Angus Mhor said...

Siena, you are clearly proof that cats continue to evolve in our urban settings! You and Banshee are on a roll!

Angel said...

Illyana will be joining Shadow and Ivan soon. They live one hundred fifty miles from us so it will be a weekend before Mom takes her there. A weekend after the remodel project is finished!

Christine and FAZ said...

You have to be careful you know, sometimes things are quite as simple as they seem to be. FAZ
