You can't always get what you want 

Sasha has spent a lot of time recently on this radiator, making tiny sounds of yearning directed at the black stuffed puppydog on the bookshelf. (It's the large black blob in the photo.) The puppy is on the shelf to prevent Sasha's dragging it around by its fuzzy shearling ear. We give the cats lots of furry toys for their hunting games, but the pup is an order of magnitude larger than the largest of those. The bookshelf in question is overflowing with sheet music, architecture books and magazines, some random clutter... and one very attractive shearling puppy. I did not think that there was enough space on the shelves for a 13-lb. cat, nor did I think that Sasha (the clumsiest of our fur family) could make that leap.
