Poor little kitty spent the day in one of our very tall trees. For half the day he had a stellar Jay screaming at him. Frozen, straddling a limb. I thought a can opener and a can of cat food would do the trick to get him down. That didn’t work, we went away for a couple of hours, I was hoping he would be down by the time we got back, but he had only climbed higher. You have got to be kidding. We finally figured out which neighbor the cat belonged to. We had the whole family at the base of the tree the father with his extended ladder half way up realizing his shoes were not good climbing tree shoes. Navar to the rescue, a little to my dismay. As I came out of the house I could see Navar way way up in the tree. Holding my breath, he was trying to pry the cat off the limb to take him down the tree. I yelled up how about a pillow case? I’ve had experience with cats and taking them to the vet in a pillow case sometimes calms them. He agreed, I grabbed the laundry bag dumped the laundry out and handed the bag up, passing 3 stages of hands. The cat eventually made it into the bag! Slowly back down the tree the teenage girl the father and finally and thankfully Navar. Gizmo, the cat looked up at Navar as only a grateful animal can do and said with his big blue eyes Thank You. The cat covered in pitch head to toe from the tree. I mentioned butter can sometimes get pitch out of hair. I know that little cat will sleep well tonight and probably all involved, what an adventure. Pictures are on two posts down.
