We saw our cat walking down the down pipe onto tank from the roof,then across the tank ,down the vine hanging over the fence which went down to the ground next door but she go off when she reached the fence & walked back along the fence until she reached the retaining wall & jumped off.

I didn't go inside to get the camera because I just wanted to watch her ,to see how she got up there in the first place.See Photos 1 & 2.
Photos 3 4 5 & 6 Cassie going up & down the ladder .The last photo is blurred because the camera wasn't set for movement.
Photo 1.Passion fruit vine growing over 5,000 litre water tank, was taken in June .
Photo 2.The 4" PVC down pipe which is in the top right hand corner of photo 1.
Photos 3 ,4,5 & 6 were taken a few days ago.The vine is dying down after producing a huge crop.The ladder was up so husband could reach any ripe fruit.

She does everything Gandalf did though they never met.She is just a nicer smaller cuddlier version of him.

The birds screech & dive bomb her .If you hear the birds you know she is on her way inside

Cool cat... but what about the passion fruit that was harvested. I am not sure if I know what it looks like. Is it sweet. Do you make jelly?

Depending on the type of passion fruit ,they can be brown or yellow when ripe .If you can see the green egg shapes hanging down amongst the leaves ,that is the unripe fruit.It is sweet & is used in fruit salads ,jellies ,cakes & anything you like.

Clever Cassie to find a way to get to where she wants to go.. She is a beautiful kitty. I love hearing and seeing these wonder stories about the Cutie's cats and dogs.

She loves climbing up anything in the backyard ,right up to the top & then she turns around & comes back down.What goes up comes down is her motto ,but husband is always telling her to come down ,she just ignores him..She goes up tree ferns ,trees ,palms & any other plant that is climbable.

Cassie is beautiful. Cats can entertain us for hours and hours. My daughters cats often in the summer vanish for 2-3 days which is worrying but they return and eat a huge meal and fall asleep My neighbours cat Pws is often found wandering about on high walls and our kitchen roof which is then used to jump up into our house via a window on the first floor
Cassie is obviously living up to having fun and enjoying herself. Thanks so much for sharing your pictures

She is a rescue cat.She is usually obedient ,comes in for the night at sunset & gets let out by the first person up in the morning.So she can what she wants during the day.
