Tipper’s Vanishing Cabinet #ThursdayDoors on #Caturday

Hi, there! I’m Tipper Allen, and guess what? I was only kidding when I wrote in that story that Momma and Poppa hid in the baffroom cabinet. They’re too big to fit! Poppa might be able to fit, if he cleared everything out of it, but Momma is too comfortably fluffy to get in. If she got in, I bet she couldn’t get back out. Don’t tell her I said so, or she’ll try it!

Joey said she’d like to see the cabinet doors, so here they are.

Momma opened them for me so I could ‘spect inside.

And then I vanished!


Then Momma gave me the camera so I could take a picture of my super sekrit hidey hole behind the tub unit. The picture is a little bit crookedy, but you can still see, right?

Momma told me about the other cats who liked to hang out back there: Tiffany, Alexander Russianpants, Katya, Amidala, and Munchkin. I could smell five other cats, and know I know who they were.

Thursday Doors is presented by a really neat hooman named Norm Frampton. Go look at his pretty photographs, then click the blue linky link at the bottom of his post and find some more doors. Prolly no sekrit cabinet doors like mine, though.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR ANIMALS: Do you have a sekrit hiding place? Does your hooman know where it is?

    Great photos, Tipper. How are you at plumbing? Just thinking ahead, maybe you can save mom a few bucks.

    Ooh, now see, those are nifty cabinets. I do imagine our cabinets smell all kindsa wonderful to our cats. Cletus is especially interested in cabinets. There’s been a time or two I’ve had to ‘sweep’ him out! Clara likes drawers, particularly sleeping all day on a pile of my drawers! 😉 Catticus likes tents.
    When Clara was a kitten at our house in Georgia, she used to squeeze into a hole between the dishwasher and the cabinetry. Used to scare me that she’d get stuck 🙁

      “When Clara was a kitten at our house in Georgia, she used to squeeze into a hole between the dishwasher and the cabinetry. Used to scare me that she’d get stuck.” I guess that’s the kind of thing that spawned “Curiosity kille the cat.”

      Charlie put the cabinet together to hide/access plumbing and tp and stuff. We’ve been here since 1982, and we still have that same makeshift cabinet. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, yeah?

        Curiosity killed the cat and satisfaction brought him back! Or in Clara’s case, she finally got too big to go in 🙂

        Yeah, well we bought our house in 2013 and it still has a vanity from the 80s in the main bath. Somehow we always find a way to spend the hundreds of dollars it would cost to replace it with a new one (preferably above knee-level lol) But it ain’t broke!

          Sadly, we don’t fix stuff when it IS broke. I did without a dryer for about ten years after it broke to the point where I couldn’t personally repair it. There are some things I still hang out on pretty days, but nobody wants to wait hours for a dry bra, amIright?

              We live in the woods, so nobody can tell me not to hang things outside. We also have a full basement, so we could hang things down there. One time — allow me to repeat: ONE TIME — the dogs decided that blue jeans were play-rags. I disabused them of that notion. With extreme prejudice.

      And a snuggery on cold ones. 🙂 During thunderstorms, I wish I could fit back there.

    Funny how a ‘place’ can have so much history. Hugs to Tipper. 🙂

      He hugs you back. Unfortunately, the only part he can reach is your ankle, so be careful on the stairs. ~sigh~ Yeah, I spend a little time every morning getting my ankles hugged while I’m trying to walk. Sometimes, bitten. Apparently, my ankles look like dangerous enemies. Oo! Maybe I could get fierce kitty tattoos on them! …Naaahhh.
