I was determined to keep the kittens out of the paint. I left the wrong door open for one minute and Gordie, who thinks he's auditioning for a sitcom, ran in, stuck his foot in the primer, turned around and high-tailed it out of there, leaving white primer footprints all over the apartment.
I caught him, washed his foot, and put him into the stairwell while I went around cleaning up all the footprints. My upstairs neighbor happened to have her door open, so he took that chance to get on to her balcony, climb over the edge and get stuck on the roof (for the second time this week).
She phoned me to say he was out there, and was afraid he'd try jumping to a tree, since he couldn't climb down the roof. I was tempted to go up there and throw him off myself. It all worked out in the end. Though when I was painting a door in the hallway, he reached around from UNDER the door to put his pawprint on the wet paint.
