Cat on a hot asphalt roof

A few weeks back we witnessed our oldest cat, Mr. Bingley, as he walked along the rail on the deck behind the house and leaped from there into the attic (which was open because the soffit was removed). We were a little concerned, but mainly amused that he would be curious enough to leap into that area. Yesterday, he entertained the girls by making his way on to the roof.

Not content to merely wander the boring roof, Mr. Bingley found the one item of interest: the chimney. If you look carefully at the middle space in the chimney, you'll see a black cat with some white fur on his face and neck. (If you click on the photo, it should enlarge).

Here he has made his way around to the other side of the middle space and seems content to be indifferent to his adoring fans below.

Finally done with his performance he takes a gander in the gutters to see if there are any treats to be had.... I certainly hope he doesn't fall into the chimney on subsequent trips as it would be very difficult to get him out, and he would smell pretty bad after a few weeks, not to mention the mournful meowing we would have to endure. Perish the thought, we may have to take drastic measures if the poor cat ever does fall in.
