It’s like a constant struggle with a 4 year old child

What new thing can Tommy do today?

He’s 10 years old this year, but he is a cat, so these things happen – I understand.
What I don’t understand is how he comes up with these new scenarios in his imagination and athleticism months or even years after we have moved into a new rental home.

A year and a half into living at the last house, he started jumping on top of the curtain rod.
Living at the current home for now eight months, he’s been jumping on top of the entertainment center.
We keep collectibles on it for over 2 years now, as well as a flat screen television that’s mounted to it.

I don’t understand if it’s that I’m older now, or that he’s in the best health, but he’s making me really nervous about leaving him with friends overnight on Sunday because we have inspection on Monday. I’m afraid he’s going to ruin something, because he’s just Tom being Tom.

He used to be fat. We got over that. He used to spray for about a year. We medicated him for a year, and then took him off, and now he mostly sprays only in the litter box but that’s not 100% thing. He also had issues with struvites, cystitis, and surgery 2 years ago. We got over that, too.

Is leaving Tom with my friends for a short period of time going to create some rift?
I was going to board him, but the vet’s office didn’t want just his rabies current; they wanted him vaccinated for everything all over again as well as a current negative test for FeLv.

That, times 2… Amalie is staying the night as well.
Only I can leave Amalie to chill in the dog crate. Tommy probably wants to play with their doggies.
