First Memory That Comes To Your Mind?

The first memory that comes to my mind right now is when my cat was hanging outside the window on the 6th floor of our apartment building when he was a kitten.

I say this, because right now I am sitting outside enjoying some sunshine with my cat while he is tormented by the spotted doves that love our courtyard (I always put seeds out for them).

The memory starts with my husband and I climbing into bed late one night, we had a lovely night of playing computer games with some wine and we had noticed that our kitten was no where to be seen. Usually he joins us when we brush our teeth, but we didn’t think anything of it. As we climbed into bed, we noticed how awfully quiet it was. We presumed he must have been out in the living room or kitchen.

It was until we were lying very still that my husband had a feeling he was paying attention to our bedroom window being open, as during this time our kitten was having this weird fascination with our open windows (we ended up having to have them essentially closed all the time because they were just pure glass, no fly screen protectors).

I was petrified to look, but I quietly climbed out of bed and moved the blind aside to see our kitten hanging half out of this glass window with this front paws stretching down the glass on our 6th floor apartment building. He wanted to jump down to the bricks that were far too thin for him to stand on so that he could explore, but as it had been raining it was incredibly slippery and he absolutely would not have been able to survive jumping out the window.

I screamed, which I shouldn’t have done because that in itself would have startled him. But as I screamed, I had reached out of the window and grabbed his tiny kitten self and yanked him back inside. After that incident, we no longer trusted having windows open!

You would think that was the only dangerous thing my cat has ever done, but his recorded history with us has only gotten worse over the years. He is by far the most cheeky, up to no good cat we have ever had. If you’ve ever seen Marley & Me, think of that but cat version.

      1. Oh my gosh, he was annoying. It remind me something. Once, my patient was overdosed on heroin and was hardly breathing. He started to fight with me when woke up with Narcan inj. He was so annoying because I have ruined his fun 😀. What is his name???


  1. Oh my goodness, cats are the devil. Glad he’s okay. One time my cat somehow managed to escape the house and idk how long she was outside. I was sitting on the couch and for some reason got the urge to look at the backyard door and through the blinds, I found her sitting on the steps, peeping inside and waiting to be let in. Mind u, we never let her out without supervision so this was frightening and funny at the same time.


  2. Ahh!!! I assume this is the feisty Blitz I just read about! I would’ve screamed as well knowing I should very well be quiet. I’m glad Blitz was caught in time. I often have times where I just take for granted how independent my cats are. One time (not as bad), my cat Jazzy who is a quiet timid boy was locked in my closet for 8 hours. I always left the closet doors slightly ajar after that point.

    1. Haha, I had to tell that to my husband. That is so cute that Jazzy didn’t even complain, he was just like “Well, this is my life now I guess” 😛 Poor boy! Cats are such odd creatures aren’t they? I’m not sure if you have seen Inside Out, but I absolutely love the part where they show what is happening in a cats mind. They have no cat at the control panel of their emotions, and then one cat just walks over the control panel and it makes the cat spaz out. Our cat has those random moments where you just look at him, and he will go completely spaz and run away. They’re so weird haha 😀

      1. The zoomies! My orange tabby totally gets the zoomies with his ears pulled back and the crazy eyes. I so don’t remember that moment in inside out which sounds so much like the ONE thing I would remember about any movie!

  3. Oh my gosh, I’m so glad you can look back at this memory & laugh now! What a silly cat! I wonder how long he had been hanging out there. 😂 I’d never trust open windows without fly screen protectors with my 3 cats either. Lol. Thanks for sharing this hilarious memory with us!!
