How To Rescue A Cat

Cats are usually pretty good at looking after themselves, but every now and again they do find themselves stuck in a tree, on a roof, or on the wrong side of a wall.

Cats stuck on roofs will take advantage of a handily placed ladder. Alternatively, park your car so your kitty can jump onto the roof and then to the ground.

Cats stuck down wells and storm drains will climb up if you throw them a tarp. Your pet will do this while you stand there and encourage them. But a strange cat will see you as a potential danger and will be too afraid to take advantage of your care. In this case put the escape mechanism in place and walk away. The cat will come out in half an hour or so.

We had a near cat-astrophe the other day but thank heavens all is well. Check out Target's great adventure in the print section of the Malaysian national daily, The Star, tomorrow - Weekend section!

I was rescued! I was afraid of the humans for days. They finally were able to pick me up from under a bush in the middle of winter, it was -12 degrees outside, and I was nearly frozen to death. Since I almost died out there, I don't like going outside anymore.
