Daddy to the rescue, and other destructive adventures

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Got home from work, carried in the groceries that I picked up on the way home and put everything away. The cats were all milling around, letting me know how they'd been starving while I was selfishly spending time at a grocery store instead of rushing home to feed them.

I had their food prepared, and started putting their bowls down, and.....no Hobo Skimbleshanks. I always panic when I can't find the Hobo, because his meow is barely a squeak, and if he is in trouble I may not be able to hear him. What if he dashed out while I was bringing in bags and he was outside????

I was dashing about half nutty around the house, looking in closests, bathrooms, cabinets, Then I heard a little raspy meow from the back bedroom. I ran in and yanked open the closet....no Hobo! Then I saw a moving lump under the comforter on the bed. I pulled back the comforter; and there was nothing there! Then, under the comforter I'd just pulled back, another moving lump. So, I pulled up the entire comforter, and it weighed a ton....he was inside the comforter, so wrapped up that he was practically cocooned. I could smell the urine and knew the little guy had been stuck in there for awhile. Look for the hole in the comforter and coax him back out?

Nope.

I grabbed a set of those blunt shears out of the bathroom first aid kit, the kind you cut bandages with, and snipped a hole in the comforter, then stuck my fingers in the hole and ripped it open. Then I put my little scared boy on my shoulder and walked him around the house. After a wiping with some baby wipes, being allowed to drink from the tap for a few minutes, and getting something to eat, he looked as thought it had never happened.

Then, I went back and looked at the comforter. I'd ripped a 31" hole in it getting the Hobo out. I never liked the color anyway.

Did you find out how he got in there? That is so weird. I'm glad your kitty is ok. Kitties get into the weirdest places.

Oh sweet Hobo! reading your escapades is it is very easy to know why the kitties make their way to your house.

What a good dad you are! Not everybody would have sacrificed the comforter so willingly.

And now you can cut the rest of the comforter into squares and stitch up the edges to make kitty pads!

I always like hearing stories about your family. Especially if they involve my favourite Little Hobo.

Finally found it. It's right on the very end, a tear in the seam that holds the top and bottom together, practically invisible. I don't know how the tyke found it. He is truly one nosy little critter.

Super Daddy to the rescue!

Of course you cut a 31" hole in it to save Hobo. After all, what is the value of a comforter compared with a scared Hobo Skimbleshanks? You did nothing less than what you had to do!

Not to be a stalker or anything, but when I've been away for a few days or week, I always do a search for posts by Skippymjp, to catch up on the adventures of Mike and his crew, like this one. I how you love your furbabies.
