Gravity. Believe It.

Nothing but excitement at Casa October!

So our staircase to the second floor kind of winds around the living room and up one wall, and there's a small space on the upper landing--very small--that just opens up onto air and the very hardwood living room. Important to know.

So we're playing Rock Band and jamming along, and I hear some scrabbling noises from upstairs on the landing. Out of the corner of my eye, I see small white paws.

And then, with no warning at all, October fell off the landing and into free fall from one floor to another.

I stopped playing, took one step forward--

And caught my kitten in mid-air.

It was a great catch, around the torso, no pulled fur, she just plopped right into my hands. In my personal kitty Super Bowl, I made the winning catch and she did not break her leg, but instead looked calmly at me and snuggled my fingers and in general had no idea what I could possibly mean by: "Just because there's a space there doesn't mean you have to squeeze into it and terrify us all."

I dialed back my heart attack and blocked the offending area. Good grief, Toby!

CATS FALLING FROM THE CEILING. MASS HYSTERIA.
