Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
The other day I come home during my lunchbreak, the two cats come running to me and we do what we always do. We cuddle on the couch.
During a quiet moment I hear a cat meowing in total panic. I look around and both of our cats are sleeping. Hmm. I check the hall, nothing. When I look out the window I see the neighbor from across the street looking into our direction. I look out the window to our balcony and I see a Persian cat on the projecting roof of the adjacent apartment building.
The cat looks shit scared and everytime she moves, she is sliding further down the roof. I hesitate for a second wondering where to get help then run to the phone to call the firebrigade. That's when I see the owner running out of the house with another guy who carries a big ass ladder. The cat looks absolutely terrified by now and before you know it they have put the ladder up. The cat was so shocked by all the ruckus that it suddenly took all its courage together and jumped back into the tiny window it probably came crawling out of in the first place.
Crisis averted!!!! Phew! I would have been more than devastaded if something would have happened to that cat. Just like the time when three little birdies fell out of their nest and onto our balcony. They couldn't be rescued and the hubby had to....well you get the gist. I was so depressed that I cried for three days straight.
