As you can see Otis has no fear. He managed to go from a chair to a bookcase, to the top of a curio cabinet to a shelf suspended about 10 inches from the ceiling. Once he was up there and decided it was no big deal he turned around on that skinny little shelf way up high and came back down. Of course this is the same "tree climbing cat" if you remember. If you don't here is the post and photos.
