Seconds before… I grabbed her and didn’t let her fall down the laundry chute.
She was so curious she couldn’t resist when I left the chute open. I was getting the kitchen towels and when I came back I found her like this. She actually managed to slide part way down, her claws dug in to the wooden sides, when I set the camera down and grabbed her.
Silly curious kitty.
Several weeks later, she actually did slide all the way down. She landed with a muffled, shocked cry but softly on the clothes at the bottom.
She was never curious about the laundry chute again. I learned to keep it closed anyway. Even a few seconds is enough time for a curious kitty to find an indoor slide. And we had two other possible curious kitties. I’m shocked they didn’t learn to team up and open it themselves.
