Beneath The Falls

NOTE: Do not try any of these stunts at home. We are trained professionals and do this for a living. Between all of us we have at least 5 months training in stunt work and have worked in the industry for maybe a day or two.

DISCLAIMER: No furries were hurt or maimed during any of these action photos that were taken.

Waiting by my bedside watching to see when I would wake up Karl, Olive, Opus, and Ruis stood watch.  Asta and Momo did the night shift and needed a break so they could rest, the next scheduled helpers are on duty. To see how things ended up this way you are welcome to read the two previous postings. Also, today's post will give you information that will get you up to speed on what and when things went wrong.

After seeing Gracie and Barney in a barrel heading towards the falls the gang all jumped in a barrel . . . and . . . well . . . you see gravity entered into the picture and we all headed over the falls.  Now it was time to do the head count and make sure all were safe . . . Karl  and Ruis . . . CHECK.

Dazed many thoughts of what could of happened ran through my mind, thus the first photo. Everything in life is a learning experience and since I am a young kittie I have a lot to learn. I now know not to take a barrel for a ride in the water when you are near Niagara Falls.

MimiME is willing to try it again but it took the gang about a half a second to all yell NO!

Remington said...

Party on, my friends!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Yeah--i wasn't keen on that the first time around!

Alasandra said...

I am so sorry you were so badly hurt. I would help nurse you back to health, but think I caught pneumonia from being in the cold water. My fur isn't as thick as MoMo's. So anyway I am back at the hotel huddled under the covers and eating chicken soup. Boy I hope my Mommy doesn't find out about this. ~Socks

One Cats Nip said...

Oh, we're relieved the first photo was only a dream. We were all concerned.

We thought Asta's Stanley had a blog. He used to.
