Sunday Funnies: DOUBLE TROUBLE #3

Heading2SMHH Here:  This week the Boys spent hours pondering the format for DOUBLE TROUBLE. When they woke up from that nap… they decided that they wanted to make sure the cartoon included Everything….. to do that, they decided to follow the ALPHABET format. To tell the truth, I didn’t know that Bugsy and Knuckles knew the alphabet, but turns out they do.  So, today we start with…

140405ASM“A” is for Acrobatics and Altitude

Knuckles Here: I’ll be the moderator for the day because this section is mostly about me. I’m the acrobat in the family and from day one, I have scared HH more times than she can count by climbing where no cat should go.

HH says my depth perception is a little off, so I’m not the best acrobat, but I’m the acrobat with guts and gumption.  Trouble is, I usually land a foot or two beyond my target — especially when I try to jump from the counter to the top of the shower door.

Shortly — like about 5 minutes after we got home on our Gotcha Day — HH learned that she couldn’t keep me down. I took every opportunity to fly and climb — the higher the better…   Here are just a few of my performances:

One of the great features of the condo is that there is a pass-through from the kitchen to the dining room.  Here I am sitting on the shelf of the pass through preparing to soar…

140405Knuck1SMI’m wiggling my butt in that picture, so you know I’m plotting something big…  Yep… I was hoping for a good swing on the…

140405Knuck2SMchandelier…  Unfortunately, it’s still a dream. I haven’t gotten a firm paw on it yet, but I have grazed it and will never give up hope.

My most successful venture into conquering Altitude was quite a challenge. HH had a china Cabinet in the corning of the dining room.  It took many tries, but I finally found the right route to the top of it.  I met with failure using Routes A and B, but Route C was the answer…


The best part of the China Cabinet Caper was flying through the air on the way down…. The beauty of it is the dining room table was right there waiting for me to skid across it on the descent…. Such a rush!!!!

140405Knuck4SMOver and over I practiced  my moves until…. oh…oh…. the china cabinet disappeared….. Yep, HH and a neighbor carried it right out the door. That was a sad day.

Not to worry kitties….. “A” is still for Acrobatics, and I still had the piano.  I studied it for a while and decided it looked very similar to those vaults they have in the gymnastic competition in the Olympics.  What could be more perfect…? It took some practicing, but soon enough, I had mastered the back-flip off the piano and through the pass-through.

140405Knuck5SMI knew better than to publicize my accomplishment. So, I practiced in private and loved my new career as Gymnast Extraordinaire…. until HH walked in on me one day mid-flight… and … oh…oh… the piano disappeared shortly after that. That was another very sad day…

Not to worry … I still have the shower door as my balance beam, and I’m pretty sure that HH isn’t going to get rid of that.  So picture us doing cartwheels up there.

Well, that’s it for this week.  Let me know what your best tricks are.

Disclaimer: Be forewarned that if you try any of these tricks at your house, you too may see furniture disappear right before your eyes.

  1. Knuckles you are a ‘Gymnast Extraordinaire’ indeed. Pity the china cabinet and piano walked out of the front door. Nevermind as you say you still have the balancing beam.
    Have a serene big easy Sunday.
    Best wishes Molly
    PS note to your clever mum, we love these toons.

    Knuckles, you really are quite the acrobat. And HH sure did a good job sketching you doing all your tricks. Silly boy. Some of us like to be up high too. Hope all of you have a nice Easy day.

    Knuckles, you made my day. M says I’m a real “slug” compared to you. I only jump up on things where I know I’m safe. You are a silly willie!

  4. Frankie and Ernie says:

    Knuckles we are gonna give you an A+ fur your ACROBATICS. OMC this was a super post… we can not WAIT to see what B will “Be”.

  5. Sparkle says:

    You are quite the world class leaper, Knuckles! Too bad all your awesome spots keep disappearing!

    • loubelcher says:

      I do miss the china cabinet the most, but I make do with the shower door. Have a great dayh.

      Hugs, Knuckles

    Oh my cats! I want a launching pad like that! Bravo hugs
    Madi your bfff

  7. Knuckles, you’ve given us some things to think about! We gotta try some of those acrobatics!

  8. meowmeowmans says:

    Knuckles, we are so very impressed by your feats of acroCATness! We are sorry that the China cabinet and piano went away, though. We’re more “track stars” here — really fast when we get going around the house! 🙂

    • loubelcher says:

      I love that word acroCATness… I miss the china cabinet and piano, but I’m making do with the shower door. Have a great day.

      hugs, Knuckles

  9. OMC we about laughed our whiskers off at the two “booms” from plans A and B!!! We thunder around on our Catio skyways. Our china cabinet is tantalizingly out of reach…

    • loubelcher says:

      Yes, those booms were a surprise to me too. Depth perception… a real problem in acrobatics. Gotta get it just right. Have a great day.

      hugs, Knuckles

  10. You are quite the acrobat!
