My Mom and Dad spent a lot of time and money to make the fence in the back yard “escape proof”, which allows us cats the pleasure of a yard to play in. Going over the fence is out of the question, so, the girls decided to tunnel out.
There are three girl kitties in our house and all three were in on the “great escape” each one dug a little while and the other two ran interference. I watched and couldn’t help but wonder if the hole would be big enough for me, not that I want to run away from home, but because the idea of exploring beyond the fence is very appealing. You know what they say, “the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence!” I don’t know about “greener” but there are more squirrels, lizards and birds to play with.
The girls almost had an escape route dug when Daddy caught them. Naturally, I offered my sympathy at their embarrassment at getting caught and I was careful not to laugh at them for being covered in dirt. They really were filthy! I think that’s what tipped Dad off on their exploits. All three of them had to get a bath. Now, I try to be a gentleman cat, but even I laughed at the soggy little things as they sat trying to lick the dampness out of their fur! I am sooooooo glad I wasn’t involved with the digging! My fur would take forever to dry and would be a major mess for days! Just between you and me….I tried to fit under the fence and got my tummy dirty! Shhhhhhhhhh, no bath for me!!!!!
