    I have to know...
    Is it just my cat that are a little hm... slow or does any of your cats refuse to jump?
    Decibel will gladly jump vertically, but when it comes to comming down from something or comming up on the kitchen counter, she cant/wont do it.
    It is not a problem since it gives the 2 older cats a chance to get away from her.
    But still...
    Is it just Decibel that are a bit special or???

    Elisabet, my female Siamese cat sometimes won't jump, but that's because she's old and has some arthritis. I don't think that's the reason for Decibel's problem, though, as she's still very young. I dunno, maybe she's still scared and inexperienced when it comes to the finer arts of jumping? :Question:

    Hold is Decibel? Just like Sykat said sounds like she is a bit young, I am sure she will figure it out one of these days especially because you have 2 older cats that jump.

    Decibel is 11 month old. But maybe its just her personality. she will jump from bed to chair, from floor to my back, from sofa to shoulder. But not from floor to counter.
    As I tried to say in a nice way...
    I think she might be a little stupid, but thats a charm.

    My cats do not jump on counters anymore.
    Cleo and Wrinkles never have tried to because the other cats no better.
    Meeko once stole a Pot Roast.

    The 2 others do. But it just made me think if it was a race-thing or just a Decibel-thing.
    I think I know the answer now. LOL

    My cat is not a jumper either, this has got me wondering.... In a way I'm glad she isn't jumping on my counters.

    None of my cats ever got on the counters---but then I got Lulu and she is into everything, all over the counters, my sinks, my dressers, my computer desk--she knocks things off and breaks things.:Angry: Now almost all the rest of them have decided if Lulu can do it, so can they! Count your blessings, GF!:LOL:

    I am trying to get Decibel to jump from the bookshelf under the ceiling and down on the bed. Still no luck.
    She is even more stubborn than me.
    I still have to reach up so she can climb down my arm and down my back.
    Just jump already!!! LOL

    I second that!!

    Haha thats great! Me and my fiance are in the process of getting the cats to not jump on the counter. Sybil will walk right on your plate and start eating if your not paying attention. Its amazing how quickly they can steal a piece of food....
