This is my sister Debbie’s older cat, Meeko. This is her perch in the kitchen (and has been for 12 years). This past fall, Debbie and Bill got new countertops in the kitchen and the installer suggested they replace this little pass-through shelf with the granite. After installation, Meeko jumped up as usual and then went flying into space—it wasn’t the wood she normally sat on. The cold granite surface completely freaked her out. She’s been back to sitting on it after months and today was the first time Bill said he had seen her do this gargoyle pose on the new surface. (Apparently you can teach an old cat new tricks!) See her polydactyl feet?
