Of course the boys helped all the way, from unpacking to final clean-up. This was the first time the attic ladder was in the down position for any length of time. I was running back and forth between the breaker box and my work, testing things when Lesley started calling me to come and look at the boys. They had decided to inspect my work wanted to join the fun in the attic.
I don't know why it always surprises me that
cats can climb steep stairs and ladders, since they
climb trees, but they always seem to open my eyes.
I remember when I was real little and my dad didn't have stairs
installed in his house yet, just a wood ladder with round rungs.
The cats had no problem going up and down.
