Mischievous Kitties

About a year ago, I would have found this scene to be a bit more humorous. But that was before we adopted a pair of very naughty kittens. They love climbing things and being up high and especially like to climb the macramé shades in the family room, where they get stuck up at the top. They're lucky they're cute and affectionate or I'd leave them there.
