Why One Ought to Turn on lights

when coming down a stairway


In the dark you may not see the cat sleeping on the step, and to avoid squashing said cat, one twists, turns and falls; causing damage to the wall



Upon hearing thumps and a boom, I ran out of an upstairs room into a dark hallway, flipped the switch to find ol Frank picking himself up off the stair landing. After ascertaining he was not hurt, proceeded to lecture him on the value of light in a stairwell.


Especially when said cat is 15 years old and has slept on that step most of the nights of his life.

Arrrugh!

good thing it was the wall and not frank (or the cat!) that got dented though.

So glad Kitty was OK. (Isn't that funny...I was more worried about the cat!)

wow - 15 years old - he doesn't look anything like it and looks just like our grey kitty - almost the very same face! You made the story very amusing but probably wasn't so amusing at the time!
