Cat On A Hot Glass Roof.......OOOPS!!!!
« on: October 02, 2019, 04:27:19 pm »
So there I was working on a boat build listening to some good music and all of a sudden CRASH BANG BAM - Maggie the second story artist had jumped down on the top glass panel of the display case I built for my Cheddar Westbury Steam Plant! By the time I realized what was happening her hind quarters were just going back over the side - nothing broke but bent the lamppost. Guess I'd better put some restraining bits on it next time and not just rely on adhesive.

Maggie looks like to sweet of a cat to ever get mad at  ;)

Cats can do that .... even when they come to you of their own volition!

Wonderful case for that Cheddar, but perhaps some kind of grating or even plexiglas over the top is in order to defend against potential future vet bills, not to mention damage to prized possessions!!!

Oh noooo....I'll bet Maggie will never make that mistake again, I'm glad there wasn't much hurt to either Maggie or the Chedder plant.😨

At first I was worried the glass broke and the cat got hurt.
Steam engines are easier to repair!
