The cat who fell upstairs

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

On my post “Moving Adventures,” a reader asked: “I was wondering what happened to your barn cat you had.Were the new owners going to take care of him? Hopefully. Would be kind of sad to leave him behind and used to having someone around and feeding him as well.Winter can be brutal for animals.”

This is in reference the cat who adopted us a couple years, whom we christened Simba because he looked like a lion. (That’s a mouse hanging from his jaws.) Since Don is allergic to indoor cats and since Mr. Darcy does everything in his power to kill any cat he sees, taking Simba with us when we moved was out of the question. Our original intent was to leave him for the new owners of our house.


Well, when Older Daughter returned from her four-year stint in New Jersey, she absolutely fell in love with Simba and rechristened him Frumpkin. New goal: Frumpkin goes with Older Daughter when she moves to her new place. It’s clear Frumpkin used to be an indoor cat anyway, so it seemed like a good plan.

Now that she has her own place, Older Daughter is now the proud owner of Frumpkin. And oh my, this cat fell upstairs. He’s been bathed and groomed, the vet cleared up an ear infection, and soon (he won’t like this!) he gets neutered. (To our surprise, he’s an intact tomcat. With all that fur, we had no idea. Apparently the vets had never seen such a quiet and mellow tomcat before.)

I asked her to send me some of her favorite photos of Frumpkin in his new digs.

Coming home to find the cat waiting for her in the window:

This is “Frumpkin joining me at the computer to help me shoot bad guys as per our nightly ritual,” explains Older Daughter.

This is Frumpkin watching Older Daughter as she emails me the photos of him.

So yes, Frumpkin fell upstairs. He’s a very happy cat.
