Tired Tuesday (and a Bit of Munro Bagging)

Mondays sure can be tough. So tough that today my furbabies look a bit like this:

Even Eddy was tired enough to take a break from parkouring off the walls to recline in bed (while refusing to the look at the camera, of course).

I don't blame Eddy one bit for being so tired, though. After all, she's been keeping busy...

This dazzling image was crafted by Gail, the human behind Bouncing Bertie's Blog.

What is this, you ask? Well, this is Eddy's victory shot from today's Pawlympics Munro Bagging event! This event is hosted by Bertie over at Bouncing Bertie's Blog, and it taught us something new.

I, for one, had no idea what Munro Bagging was until this event. As you can read on Bertie's blog, Munro Bagging is also known as Scottish Mountain Climbing. What's more, in Scotland, a hill exceeding 3000 ft is called a Munro, and if you climb one of those it's said that you've, of course, bagged a Munro. And so there you have it. Munro Bagging.

This event seemed like it was made just for Eddy. Honestly, the girl will climb anything.

Eddy and I figured, why not turn that bed post into a mountain? And so, bag a Munro she did. Be sure to visit Bertie today, to see all of the other amazing competitors in this fun event!

And don't miss the Bubble Jumping event, hosted by Oreo.

And, of course, have a wonderful day, everybuddy!

Our Tip of the Day:
Remember that cats are vertical creatures. What I mean by that is, they like to climb and jump. In the wild they climb trees and watch prey from perches high off the ground. That being said, assuming your kitty is like most kitties, be sure that he or she has some areas in the house to climb and jump. Cat trees are great, but you can also get innovative and stagger sturdy shelves on the walls for your kitty to climb and recline on, or even simply reserve certain sturdy pieces of furniture or boxes specifically for their climbing pleasure. What's more, if possible, try to make sure that at least one or two of your kitty's perches are by a window. This allows them to not only climb up high, but to also use those squirrels and rabbits and birds outside to spark their natural predatory instinct. They'll thank you for the National Geographic channel set up right in their own back yard!


  1. Eddy, surely you have posted ... er, bagged, the highest post ... er, munro, in the bedroom ... er, in the highlands!
    Good job, girl!

  2. Those are some mighty good pictures. Love the one that Beth did. And Eddy, what a smart girl you are to get up there where you can see out the window. That sure is a fun event,the Munro Bagging.

  3. Seeing all of you guys is making us sleepy! Thanks for telling us abut Munro Bagging. We've never heard of it before. We love to climb...so this would be a fun event.

  4. We hadn't ever heard of Munro Bagging until today!

  5. Great post! I learned something new today too as I had never heard of Munro Bagging either. Nice photo of Eddy on her mountain, everyone else is adorable too. Very important tip, I have lived with cats for almost 25 years and only learned they liked to be vertical a few years ago.

  6. your photo is so sweet, that would make an awesome greeting card catchatwithcarenandcody

  7. Concatulations, Eddy ! We didn't even know what was Munro Bagging ! Purrs

  8. I've never heard of Munro Bagging either...but I think Mudpie would be great at it too! She's definitely a climber. That image is amazing!

  9. Excellent job, Eddy! Hey, do the stairs count in Munro Bagging?

  10. Thank you for explaining Munro Bagging. When we say it on the Pawlympics Schedule, we were stumped. Eddy definitely deserves her medal. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
