Mountain Climbing Mancat

It may be Monday, but that doesn't mean you can't conquer the world. After all, Cat World Domination Day was just this past weekend. But that's beside the point, sort of. Anyway, it's Monday, so who's ready to kick this week in the rear end? Mancat Evan sure is!


Evan always reminds this momma of his here that anything is possible. So what if your hind limbs are paralyzed? That doesn't mean you can't climb mountains.


And that's exactly what my hind limb paralyzed boy does. If he wants to climb the cat tree mountain, he makes it happen.


What is it they always say? Oh, yeah. Where there's a will, there's a way. That's it.


So, take Evan's advice, and climb a mountain or two on this Monday!

Our Tip of the Day:
Depending on a cat or dog's physiology, age, and overall health status, you may have to provide them with mobility aids, such as stepping stools, pet stairs, or ramps. These can be placed beside taller pieces of furniture, such as cat trees, beds, and couches, in order to help the furbaby to more easily reach them. As is obvious and which you certainly already know, this may be necessary for furbabies with various levels of paralysis, for those who are stiff or arthritic, and even for those who are simply overweight and therefore have difficulty jumping or climbing. For the kitties who are aging or arthritic, also ensure that their litter boxes have low sides for easy entrance, or place a short stool in front of it. Such as is Evan's case, you can even try putting more easily attainable pieces of furniture adjacent to those less so. For example, we have our low and therefore easily climbable couch directly next to the cat tree, forming a little highway for Evan's ease of travel. Sometimes all it takes is a little redecorating and a tad bit of creativity to make your furbaby's life a bit easier!

  1. We ended up having to do some special things for our dear departed Orbit as he aged, including steps, helping him onto the bed, chairs, etc. We're also now trying to figure a way to help Cleo shed some pounds. we've gotten her some toys that are supposed to stimulate her to move around, but so far she'll play for a second or two and then just lay down. It's frustrating, but we won't give up on the old gal! Have a great week.

  2. Evan is an inspiration! When we TRY and when we WANT something bad enough - we will make it happen. He's adorable and happy in spite of whatever challenges he has.....we can all "take a page from his book" !!

    Love and Happy Monday..........Teddy and Mom Pam

  5. Evan is such a cutie. His story would make a great inspirational book for kids and I hope he gets his story in the next Rescued book. Very cute drawing. And excellent tip. I have several older cats so we do have little foot stools near taller furniture to help them.
