- My cats love to drink out of the water flowing out of the HOB on my 135.

LOL!!!! Poor Ferris!
My cats have done similar things, though not quite so dramatically. Lemur in particular is just fascinated with water, especially yummy fishy water. I can totally picture what happened with Ferris - too bad there's no real picture. ;D

- My cats have fallen into my 135. The glass on top broke when Mozart's weight hit it. I am going to replace it with thicker glass.

At least he doesn't relate the experience to me directly. He's more
likely trying to figure out how to make the trash bin disappear
quietly in some landfill somewhere... He loves to drink the fish
water from the tanks, etc. too, and I always thought that would be how
he'd "fall in", not the bin.
And of course, unless something odd happens, I'll be around to help
with a Fall show, so Larissa- you'll have support in your madness.
