Thomas...

I had to share this little story about Thomas. Last night I was chased out of the family room by the guys wanting to watch something boring on TV. So I took my stitching upstairs to my bedroom and was watching something I wanted to see on TV when I heard all this commotion in the basement. It sounded like someone had thrown a bowling ball in the dryer and turned it on! Then I heard some shouting, then pathetic meowing. I then heard pounding on the stairs as DH came running breathless into my room. It seems they had to rescue poor Thomas.

Thomas is always getting into small spaces, weaving in and out of boxes and trying to get behind appliances. Apparently he squeezed behind the washing machine, then tried to "hop" over something behind the machine and got hung up on the cord to the washer. It had wrapped around his body just behind his front legs and his back legs were dangling. He had no way of getting himself out of the fix he was in. I hope he's thankful his owners were home!! I guess he was panicked by the time the guys reached him and was kicking and clawing by the time they tried to rescue him. They finally released him from his predicament only to find him trembling and his heart pounding. Good thing it was be kind to your pet day yesterday, or DH probably would have left him hanging! LOL

My guys are ALWAYS a source of entertainment! (By the way, Thomas has been particularly sweet to DH ever since! LOL)

My sister's cat went into the Christmas tree, fell and got tangled in Christmas lights. Oh the hollering and meowing. Biting and growling!!! Needless to say, he stayed away for the tree forever after.

Have a blessed day.
