I just saw where my sister posted that she laughed at my great escape.... I am feeling the need to explain my position.....
You see, we had already been stuffed in our carriers for the fourth day of our journey across country. We had just left our "new house" and I was NOT PLEASED AT ALL! I was tired of traveling, my ears felt oh so funny, and I wanted it all to end, yesterday! As we were driving down the road, nearing Snoqualmie Pass in Washington, mom kept hearing this crashing/banging noise from the back seat. She was planning on stopping at the next exit to find out what the trouble was when she looks into her rear view mirror. Imagine her surprise she saw my gray and white furry face pop up out of nowhere! She asks, "Hello, where did you come from"? Ummm, DUH!
Well, I started to panic. I have never been free to roam inside of a vehicle, especially a moving one. I immediately climbed over the piles in the back seat into mom's lap and ever so desperately tried to get on the floor board under mom's feet! She scruffed my squirming self as she pulled over to the side of the highway (there were not any exits close). Cars and trucks were passing us at 70-80 MPH. Mom had to think quick. She knew that trying to step outside of the car would be incredibly risky. Not only for me, but for her too. I have to say I am truly impressed with how she managed to twist around in her seat while holding me (seat could not be moved back or even laid back). She stuck me back inside my carrier and triple checked to ensure it's security. It wasnt until later that she realized, I crawled out through the bottom of the door! The bottom part on one side was not secured, the other part had broken! Despite being completely freaked out over the whole thing, whenever she thought about my little head popping up into her rear view mirror, she had to laugh.
Anyway, when we got to our new place, the first thing I found was the top of the refrigerator. Then the top of the cabinets. Then I found the water heater. I was investigating the water heater when somehow I managed to get myself stuck! I started crying and squirming, and scratching, trying to get out, all to NO avail! The only thing mom could get a hold of was one foot and my tail. Mom grabbed my tail and quickly pulled me out. She felt bad for having to do that, but I was stuck, and if I went all the way down she would have had a hard time helping me get out.
I love sitting in the window of the bedroom. It is right over the bed, and my favorite thing to do is leap out of it while mom is sleeping. I usually land right on her stomach. I have earned yet another nickname.... Kamikaze Kitty..... MOL.....
Hi, Spaz: Bet that was a surprise when mom saw your cute face in the rearview mirror!
