Boulder Cat Shows Poor Judgment

A Boulder woman was spotted climbing a ladder on Saturday to rescue her cat, Muffin, from a branch in an ash sapling. According to the woman, who declined to give her name, her cat does not always show good judgment.

“Muffin sometimes makes poor choices,” said the woman, who was reaching for the cat from its perch 10 feet off the ground, “and her coping skills are non-existent. But I think it is just so important to use only positive messaging with Muffin.”

As Muffin hopped out of the tree, avoiding her guardian’s grasp, the woman said, “Negative thoughts will prevent her from achieving positive, successful results. Just last week we had to take down all of the curtains in our house because she kept getting her claws caught while climbing in the house. Our friends’ cat has much better impulse control.”

As we talked, Muffin wandered over to the neighbors’ fenced yard to taunt their dogs.
