What a week it has been! Last Wednesday night I snuck out the porch door when Mom was taking out the trash. She tried to call me back in, but, I am a scardey cat and ran away. Mom doesn't know for sure what happened after that, but all night she kept calling me and I was gone.
The next day Mom and Tonya went looking for me and heard me meowing over by the kennel. After looking around, they discovered me about 30 feet up in a BIG TREE!!!
Mom wasn't too worried...she left some food and water under the tree and expected me to come down when it got dark.
Friday morning I was still up the tree. This time she and Tonya and Sarah got a really long, long pole and hitched the catch pole to it and Tonya climbed a ladder and the tried to snag me out of the tree. Didn't work...I went higher up. Mom was getting worried! Later, Tonya's husband came and they tried some more and they called the fire department but no one could help.
Saturday, I was still up at the tippy top and getting very weak!! Now Mom was frantic but didn't know what to do. Suddenly, a whole bunch of people came with longer poles and ropes and other stuff. they tried everything they could think of, but nothing worked at all. They even had a vet with them and she said I would pass out and crash to the ground soon as I was definitely getting shaky.
Mom told them to saw down the tree!!! So, they started the big saw and I was really scared now! Aft a while, the tree started shaking and then it was falling!!! It was falling very,very slowly and suddenly crashed into another big tree and then fell to the ground. Mom raced overe to grab me, but...no way was I letting anyone touch me. I ran over and climbed over the fence and hid in the woods.
Mom wouldn't let anyone look for me...she put some food and water out and brought my best cat friend, Smokey, down to the woods. All night she kept calling me, and, finally she propped open the door. At daybreak she got up and came out and called me again, then went back inside.
But...I heard her so I came in the open porch door sand screamed for her to let me into the house. She did, I raced into the bedroom and I thanked her over and ov and over for rescuing me!!!
I am perfectly fine, except for being VERY skinny and tired. I am NEVER climbing up another tree!!!

I think that would put me off climbing trees too!
What an adventure you had. I'd be surprised if you ever left the house again.
Well, Mother is a bit surprised... I have snuck out THREE times since I got home!!! I even went out the dog door in the puppy pen!!!
Of course, she nabbed me each time, drats!
Oh, my goodiness! I catnot beleeve you would go outside ever again. How skaredy!
