Aby-a-Day – June 27: Tree time (Friday Flashback)

Jacoby is not the most agile or graceful cat I’ve ever known, and this is quite clear if you look at his history with trees.

He had a young start with vegetation, beginning with catnip plants.

This was his first tree, in Boston Common back in September 2010…

“Look, Ma! No hands!”

No matter what he does, he just can’t quite look natural and at ease in this tree.

Look at his funny bowlegged pose!

I think he was talking to squirrels in this photo.

For a moment, it looked like he might try to climb higher…

…but he gave that up pretty quickly. I guess he decided that he was high enough, thank you.

His next tree was in a park in Brookline in April 2011…

I think this was Jake’s all-time favourite tree.

It was a huge old tree, with nice rough bark that he could hold onto.

He really did try to climb this one as high as he could!

Getting down isn’t as easy as going up…

“Well, maybe I’ll just stay here forever.”

A few months later, we were back in Boston Common in late October 2011…

You know, it might just be the trees in the Common that Jake can’t get the hang of.

He just doesn’t seem to know what to do with his paws, does he?

This is how he looks from the back…

Of course, Jake doesn’t always go up the trees…

…Sometimes he just looks up.
