Frankie escaped a couple of weeks ago and ended up under a car in front of my next door neighbor’s house. Frankie learned from Chris that under cars are like safe zones where humans can’t go. Once under the car he felt safe to ignore me.
He was so confident that I couldn’t catch him that he decided to rub that fact in my face by rolling over onto his back.
I sat outside on my door stoop and waited for him to come out. Soon it started raining. A little at first but then a torrential downpour.
I think once the water started getting under the car, Frankie decided he had enough and raced home. I opened the door when he got close and he raced inside. Maybe that will teach him that inside is better. Or not.
seems the water did the trick …;O)
Yes, but I cannot count on that next time. 🙂
HAHAHA……next time he does that little trick – just go over with a bucket of water and pour it under the car. That might work! HAHAHA
I thought of a squirt bottle but I think that might drive him farther from home instead of closer.
The water bucket idea sounds like a winner! LOL!
Ahahaha I do see some looks of cattitude on his face . . .
Frankie, no water slide fun dude?!?!
Frankie! You better read about Sawyer and his travails and how happy he is to be home
If only he knew.
LOL! Learn the lesson, buddy. Inside is ALWAYS better than outside.
Love and licks,
I hope he knows now.
I think it will be “or not.” 😉
Brat cat. Bratis Catis…Latin form. I say that to Ollie all the time.
I’ll have to remember that. 🙂
I would guess that he didn’t learn his lesson, knowing Frankie! He would be out of luck with my human, because she actually CAN fit under a car.
Imagine Frankie’s surprise. 🙂
Hee! Hee! Spraying the car with water was my secret trick to get escapee cats out from under the car in Vancouver! I’d open the door (ensuring the other cats were nowhere they could escape) and then sprinkle the car. Worked every time! Glad the rain got Frankie to come in.
Thanks. Most cats really do not like a little water.
Cats are amazingly stubborn creatures.
