March Madness How Cats Climb Trees

If you love cats, sharing makes us purrrr :-)

UPDATED: After a crazy busy week and stir crazy kitties, we got a break in the weather yesterday.

An especially squirrelly Odin said, “The sun is finally out. Come on mom, there are trees to climb and places to go! Let me show you how cats climb trees.


In a flash, he does his crazy tree sprinting, up down, up down and up to pause at the view. Cats claws are uniquely curved inward to grip the bark of a tree. The climb up is an easy, elegant ballet while the trip down is awkward at best. But what goes up must come down.


Cats shimmy down until they’re close enough to reverse and jump down. The bare branches, bark and tabby stripes created this art of camouflage.



Are you ready for spring?
