Bird Baths Are Dangerous For Cats!!!

Wow. I am OK! But I just had a near death experience! I was outside with my brothers and parents, just chillaxing around the garden. Mom and Dad had us out there on our leashes while they raked, cleaned up, and explored the newly de-snowed yard... Then I noticed that the BIG cement bird bath was back! When did Dad take that out of moth balls?! I know I'm not supposed to jump up there, but couldn't quite remember why that was... Sparkman reminds me it's filled with water usually.

But there I was outside, on my leash, and wanted to badly to sit in there! Dad had just brought it out, so no water in it yet... I jumped up, and WHOA! The whole top dish thing tipped and fell on top of me! The rim hit my neck and I hissed as I scampered trying to get out from under the big heavy thing. Dad got there first and lifted it off me, which meant I started an all out panic run on my leash! All 4 of us had our leashes on the same leash anchor, and had tied an amazing knot. Dad was panic stricken with not knowing quite which one to undo to free me. Mom got to me about then, and unhooked my collar.

I ran RIGHT for the back door to the house! Mom was at my heels and opened the back door for me, and ZOOM! I ran full speed up to the attic floor and hid. Dad was the first to find me, I heard Mom outside still trying to calm and get my brothers inside... Phew! That was terrifying!

Dad checked me over for swelling, broken bones, anything bothering me and I seem fine. He says they'll keep checking on me over every half hour, then hourly... We do have an emergency vet in town and Mom says she'll take me in if I show any discomfort... Wow that was scary! The humans said they're going to move all bird baths to where we can't hurt ourselves again... Mom's a little shocked and not sure what she'd have done if Dad wasn't right there. Dad's the best. He saved me! Oh, Dad dad dad! Thank you!!!
