Let me know what works for you.
Talley, our 6 month old Calico, had been on the banister on the second floor, climbed on top of the upper kitchen cabinets (no clue how she did that one) and her best yet was this morning. Our stairway has a triangle-shaped opening between the stairs and the family room. It gives an open feeling to the stairway, with the bottom edge equal to the floor of the second story. Somehow, daredevil cat jumped onto the opening, knocking a birdhouse onto the piano below. I can't wait to find out how much that will cost to repair.
