You have not begun to understand the meaning of "stuck" until you've seen a cat stuck somewhere and boy, do TCS kitties get themselves into some sticky situations! Here's our guide to the feline beginner about "getting stuck" with aplomb. Make sure your cats read this guide and if they manage to outshine these kitties, post about it in the Fur Pictures forum!
Curiosity and cats go hand in hand, but exploring can get you stuck, like this cat who couldn't resist trying to dig his way between the Huge Sofa Pillows
Sometimes, you dig your way in, without going down. Getting stuck behind furniture is purrfectly natural. As long as your paws are out, you're doing fine!
Think sticking to cat furniture will save you from getting stuck? Think again!
It's particularly awkward when you're stuck high up, like this cat -
Or this one,
Or cats that get stuck climbing up curtains, which may or may not hold their weight.
Windows are irresistible, aren't they? Oh boy, can you get stuck climbing a window screen, just ask this kitten
Or this Velcro Kitty here -
It doesn't have to be the screen itself. Windows of all sorts can get you stuck even if you don't climb any screens, honest!
They may be too tight to maneuver but you still can't resist trying to squeeze in there.
Blinds. We're not sure if they're stickier when they're shut or open -
Never assume that spaced bars are safe. Bars and cats don't mix well. Any kind of bars!
Hiding under furniture can definitely get you stuck as well -
Or just hiding in "things".
Never underestimate a box. It might be bigger and deeper than you think -
Remember, cats don't only get themselves stuck. They can get other cats stuck too, like this:
When the circumstances are right, you can get other animals stuck in awkward positions as well:
Animals can be a challenge, just take care not to get stuck yourself while stalking prey -
Humans are even more of a challenge. Try to get them stuck in their chair and you may end up stuck yourself, between a chair and a hard place -
But pinning down humans is doable, and can be very useful sometimes -
Just make sure you never ever release the human or you could end up all wet and stuck in a towel -
Climbers start getting stuck at a very young age, sometimes with their Mom around to watch over them -
Or with no parental supervision -
It's why you sometimes need some help. Just don't get stuck being "the ladder"!
As you grow older, you can climb on your own and get stuck in brand new fascinating things like this contraption:
Or this one, which the humans seem to favor more -
Speaking of drinks. Now, there's a whole new way of getting stuck. Just innocently drinking, like this -
Or this -
Going in head first definitely can get you stuck and put you in a stinky situation:
But remember, when life gives you shoes, make a comfy bed! Never admit to being stuck and when in doubt take a nap just to make your point:
