This is not an episode from the BBC’s Upstairs Downstairs series but it is definitely a new way of living for Cocoa and Chipley.

I call this view the “cat drop,” and it really is. The other night as I walked through the dining room and headed for the steps to go upstairs, the cat literally dropped or fell from above and landed right in front of me. “Ouch!” I thought. Then before I could check to see if he was okay, he got up and ran right back up the steps where he peered down at me from in-between the banisters.

There is a huge window at the top of the steps and guess who likes to hang out there looking for people to show up like the garbage men, the UPS guy, or the mailman. The new house is a full time “Puppy” job.
