Spice was up a tree! High!!!!

Morgan was ready to call in the National Guard. She got the standard–they don’t find cat skeletons in trees, do they?–reminder……. Wasn’t impressed. She got out the flashlight in case Spice didn’t know which way was down.

Maybe I shoulda let her call in the National Guard. There’d be Spice, just chillin’ in a tree, and the National Guard could show up in their tanks and helicopters and flak jackets. OHMYGOD, it’s a CAT IN A TREE! THAT’S NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE!

She was sitting on the porch swing yesterday and I bet she was stuck there, too. She was probably stuck with her head in the food dish this morning. GOOD THING WE’VE GOT HELICOPTERS AND TANKS AND CUTE NATIONAL GUARD BOYS!

Oh, wait…… Yes, let’s DO call them……..:wigglebrow:

    SO IS SHE DOWN???? Poor kitty.:sad:

  2. Becki says:

    Is she down? Is Morgan OK? Spice is her baby.

    Last day of school!

  3. Angie says:

    Hmmmm, I seem to recall this same scenario with a different feline not too long ago.
    I know! Tell her you’ll open a can of people tuna just for her if she comes down.
    Maybe if you cut down all the really tall trees around your house….
    Seriously, you know she’ll come down when she is good and ready. And you could always call a ridiculously good-looking fireman to get her down.

  4. Melissa says:

    I was just going to ask that same question, Catslady. ๐Ÿ˜€

    :yes: ๐Ÿ˜ฏ Hot National Guard boys, Suz. Or cute fireman. ๐Ÿ˜† Angie.

  5. Suzanne says:

    Yes, she got down right after I took this picture!:mrgreen:

  6. Angie says:

    Awww, Suzanne! She was just wanting her own Kodak moment. Sugar got hers and Spice was jealous. ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. Sandy J says:

    Awww! Such a cute pic. But it would have been cuter with a hunky fireman to the rescue!

  8. mary beth says:

    Poor Spice. Silly cat. I know mine does that kind of thing and then cries like I can get up there and save her or something! Great photo.

  9. Marcy says:

    LOL That really was high, wasn’t it. I’m sure Morgan is breathing easier now that Spice is down.

  10. Loreth Anne White says:

    Yeah … you know why they don’t find cat skeletons in trees? ‘Cause they let go and fall down when they die. Didn’t know the National Guard did that kind of thing ;). And yes, great photo.

    PS … don’t try the firemen … they have the same cat-in-tree-guidbook.


  11. Angie says:

    Loreth!! I was gonna say that, but I didn’t want to upset Morgan. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    But now that we know Spice is safely grounded……

  12. Suzanne says:


  13. ruby55 says:

    Loreth and Suzanne!

    How come there are so many stories of kind-hearted firefighters rescuing pets, especially cats?

    Uh, come to think of it, the guy upstairs who sometimes has to get rushed to the hospital by ambulance has to *pay* for the privilege!!! Service just ain’t what it used to be, that’s for sure. You can’t afford a car so that you can get there without calling an ambulance so you get to pay for the ambulence when you’re already on disability pension and hardly able to eat. Sure makes sense.:wall:

  14. Estella Kissell says:

    Thank goodness she came down on her own.

  15. Lynn Daniels says:

    So glad she finally came down. But here’s the burning question: were the National Guardsmen cute? You did call them, right? RIGHT???

  16. Carol says:

    They always come down! :yes:

  17. Marianne says:

    Don’t let anyone tell you that the always come down.

    I had the stupidest Siamese cat ever known in the history of man who climbed an oak tree by my home when I was younger. My step-dad said, “It’ll come down.”

    Three days later… “When he gets hungry, he’ll come down.”

    A week later, when the crying from the tree was fading away, “Don’t worry… they always come down.”

    He never came down. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ
