Re: Cat survives for 26 days..And it happened here..


Happy Saturday everyone.

I am cooking up some Shortbread Cookies for a X-mas
craft faire involving my daughter’s pre-school, then
getting ready for my staff party tonight.

I just read this story, and it just so happens that
it occurred in my own back yard.

Pi, the plucky cat, is the talk of Nelson, B.C., after surviving
a 26-day ordeal on a narrow ledge.


His relieved owners Jane Hansell and partner Charles Dawes gave
Pi up for dead last month when he didn’t return after they let
him out for a morning walk.

“We let him out on a Sunday morning at about nine o’clock and he
never leaves for more than a three-hour period,” Hansell told
CBC News.

But as the hours stretched into days, Hansell and Dawes went through
the grim routine of plastering pictures of Pi on mail boxes, and
making repeated calls to SPCA.

Eventually, they began to give up hope, thinking that he must have
wound up on the losing end of a fight with a local coyote or cougar.

But to their surprise, Pi was rescued by a kayaker, who spotted him
perched on a narrow ledge near the edge of the water. That was almost
a month after he went missing on Nov. 4.

The kayaker relayed the message to the local SPCA, who had heard about
the missing cat and phoned Hansell and Dawes to tell them that it might
be theirs.

He was. It turned out that the cat had been stranded on a cliff ledge
around the corner from a neighbour’s property, out of sight and too
far away for his cries to be heard.

Having survived for 26 days without food or water, he was hungry, well
under weight, and lucky to be alive.

“I was surprised by how skinny and light he was,” said Dawes.

The cat is now doing fine because the couple heeded the advice of the
SPCA by feeding him small morsels in a bid to prevent his system from
going into shock.


P.S. Lewis my dog broke into the cat kennels yesterday and
gorged himself on cat food. Today he has some pretty wicked
smelling gas..Very much like Walter the Farting Dog.
If any of you have some ant-gas recipes, I would love to
hear about them before my staff party.

Hope you all have a good, gas free weekend.
It’s Your Pet. Heal Them At Home!

Best Wishes,
