I’m not sure what the tally is, but our cat has been using up his nine lives; regular readers have met Dandy the cat before,
they might also remember that he fell in the pond back in the summer
He’s always shown a preference for drinking spring water from the pond, rather than tap water, so when I spotted paw print on the ice the other day
I had my suspicions that they were his. This morning when I came down, I found a distressed and soggy cat sat on top of the central heating boiler, it seemed obvious what had happened, a look at the pond confirmed my fears, that at some stage during the night he had fallen through the ice.
We can’t help but think he was very lucky to have managed to get out; before the sun melted the snow on the bank, you could see exactly where he had hauled himself out. One lucky cat; at 13 years of age you’d think he’d have a bit more sense.
This cat has made us all laugh
