Cat & Stairs...*UPDATE*
Long story short;
Smitt may have to somehow adjust to stairs.
We're talking about an extremely skittish cat here. He's scared of; Plastic/paper bags, rain hitting the roof, sudden movements, loud voices/noises, music, thunder, whistling, mail being dropped in the mailbox, repair people, any Halloween themed songs, the vent fan over our oven, the sound of fireworks several miles away, our Hoover floor cleaner, Rachel Ray's voice, empty boxes, visitors....believe me, the list goes on. Needless to say, he is an inside Kitty.
Anyhow, we currently do not have stairs, nor has Smitt ever encountered stairs.
Is there anything we can do to help train or prepare him for stairs in a new home?
How did your cat react to stairs for the very first time? Please tell me your stories.
