The armoire held a fascination for Rudy. He discovered it when I hid some feather toys. He found that he could stick his front leg through the wire hole in the back, and make all kinds of noise. He could spend hours behind the piece, doing god knows what. Maggie and Rudy chased each other behing the armoire and had "fights". They never pulled out any wires, thank god!
One day I saw him contemplating the top of the armoire. It was a matter of time before he figured out how to become king of the mountain. He would jump from the table on the other side of the doorway, saling up with the grace of a young muscular cat. He could spend hours there, snoozing and watching his people.
