Remembering Ruby: That Time When Ruby Fell Off the Refrigerator


Not a day has gone by since Ruby passed away that I haven’t been flooded with memories. Some make me cry, some make me smile, and every single one is precious. I’ll periodically share some of these memories so you can take a trip down memory lane with me. Today’s story goes back to July 2011, just three months after Ruby joined our family.

Ruby liked to hang out on top of the refrigerator. This was before I put small a cat tree in the kitchen, but even after the addition of the cat tree, she still often preferred the higher perch of the refrigerator. Of course, Ruby being Ruby, she didn’t just quietly sit and watch from her elevated view point. She rolled around, stretched, and – well,  you’ll have to read the full story to find out what happened.

    Ruby needs her own book of stories! These memories were wonderful.

    I enjoyed your memories of Ruby & it did make me smile. Did you hear that Street Cat Bob passed away? James has so many memories to cheer him. My thoughts are with him.

    I enjoyed reading Ruby’s wild adventures. She sure get herself caught up in some crazy situations. I’m glad she was ok when she fell off the fridge. They do tend to worry us at times, don’t they?

    As soon as you said “rolled around and stretched” I knew what happened. My tuxie Eve does the same thing on top of the cat tree, especially if I’m walking by. She wants attention and that’s her way of “charming” me. I have learned to avoid walking close to the tree if she’s awake ever since I had to catch her when she rolled right off!
