Marshall stood and stared up at Sharkey. Then moved to the other side of the chaise lounge and gazed up at her from that angle. He stepped back out in the grass and turned to look again. It was clear that he wanted to see what ‘furniture’ was all about.
Marshall doesn’t do much jumping up. He can get down but usually it’s an enormous effort well beyond what he needs to accomplish the deed and he lands head first into another piece of furniture or even the wall. Poor guy – part of it is his poor eyesight and part of it is his complete lack of experience. So I made the decision to put him up there with Sharkey to see what he would do.
Suffice it to say, he was wary at best, tolerated it for as long as he possibly could then launched himself straight into a large flower pot and over they both went. He will probably never attempt the chaise lounge again.
