Whatstacked: books, sand toys, sunglasses, sunscreen, sandals
To close out the summer, we’ve got a great picture of cat Weeds. Weeds doesn’t want to miss out on the beach fun, so he’s stacked himself into all the gear needed for a trip to the shore. Such form, such grace, such majesty! Thanks to owner Marian for capturing this wondrous feat and to Weeds for being such an agile catstackathelete. We hope your summer has been full of fun catstackery!
Catstacked: Capt. Jack
Whatstacked: Dog toys
Poor Capt. Jack. Stacked with dog toys. But if there’s a silver lining it’s that he can now stack ANYTHING. Stacking dog toys has given him the attached zen mastery needed to rise above the stacking materials. Just as long as the dog doesn’t mistake him for a dog toy himself, all will be well. Thanks Karen and Capt. Jack!
Whatstacked: dishes, dustpan, pillow
This morning’s catstackery comes from Misha, with an extremely small amount of help from a human named Cavy. As you can see, Misha has crafted a daring stack while seemingly relaxing nonchalantly in a cat hammock. Misha is also up for adoption: “We have some very tolerant cats at the rescue I volunteer with, so I decided to try cat stacking them. Misha was my first stacking attempt, and I think she was made for it! See how zen she looks? Misha, however, says I am only qualified as a temporary stacker and is accepting applications for a permanent human stacker. For more information on becoming Misha’s Permanent Stacker click here.” Thank you Misha and Cavy and for someone looking for an innate catstackathelete, here’s your chance to take one home!
Whatstacked: Stuffed friends
Today’s cute and funny feat of catstackery comes from Belladonna. As with so many cats, Belladonna seems to have effortlessly discovered her inner catstackathelete and sits with regal wonder as she deftly balances two stuffed animals. Owner Kristin had this to say: “This was my first attempt at catstacking. But to my surprise Belladonna was very complicit in the building project and decided to pose when it came time to document the event. I am very excited by her gung-ho attitude towards the sport and we look forward to some more substantial entries in the future. Viva la catstacking!!!” Thanks, Kristin and Belladonna. Excellent work!
This fine stack comes to us from a cat named Reesey who has been stacked with… Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. Isn’t catstacking just like that sometimes? The universe aligning to make something beautiful and daring and hilarious and supremely athletic? I thought so! Nik provides this reasoning: “When my Mom got me a huge bag of Reeses, I felt that I had to start stacking.” Nice job Reesey and Nik! And Mom! Keep those stacks coming, everyone!
Today’s stack by Yeller and owner Sarah is a great example of how to deal with that age-old cat problem: you want to read a book, or work on the computer, or play a video game and your cat is determined to be right on top of you. Well, why not turn that aggravating habit into some productive catstackery just like Yeller and Sarah have done? Sarah notes that this was, In fact, “a triple stack: me on the couch, Yeller on me, the laptop on Yeller.” Thanks Sarah and Yeller! Keep those stacks coming everyone!
Whatstacked: Scratching board
In what may well be the first documented case of cat-self-stackery, Maddie has stacked herself with her scratching board. Owner Louise says that she does this a lot. This sort of self-stackery is most likely Maddie’s dreams of becoming a catstackathelete manifesting themselves. She knows she loves to stack but does not know that stacking can become a pasttime, a passion, a career, a profession. With time, Maddie will no doubt branch out into the world of catstacking and find her own specialty. Thanks Maddie and Louise!
Whatstacked: Six cups
Bumbles is anything but as she gracefully balances a set of six colorful cups on her back. Bumbles, writes owner Laura, is the “sister of Roxy who was stacked with pens and Avatar a couple of years ago.” It appears that ace catstackery runs in this feline family. Laura also notes that Bumbles “feels the vast array of colours shows off her beautiful, multi-tonal, silver grey fur.” To this, we agree. Thanks Laura and Bumbles and keep the catstacking pictures coming. Is December official catstacking month? It would appear so!
Whatstacked: 15 cups
After a brief lull in worldwide catstacking, this challenging championship sport appears poised to make a comeback! We have for your consideration a skillful and artistic stack from cat Calvin. Owner Rowan writes that Calvin has the temperament of a true catstackathelete: “Calvin is one of the most placid cats ever – I think he is part beanbag. He was completely unbothered by me stacking a pyramid of 15 plastic cups on him.” Great job Calvin and Rowan and thanks for keeping the dream alive!
Whatstacked: Remotes, pen, wrapper, nail clippers
This is Max’s first stack and as you can see, he has stacked with the patience and skill of a seasoned pro, batting nary a whisker. He is like a heated cat-shaped holder of all things you might need for an evening watching television, so his stack is also very useful. Thank you, Max and Laura and keep those stacks coming people (and cats)!
