Feline Friday #82| Friendly Fill-Ins

Feline Friday #82| Friendly Fill-Ins


It’s time for Feline Friday, hosted by Sandee from Comedy Plus!

During the eighteen years Sammy lived with us, many things happened… good and bad.

One of the bad things happened while we where vacationing on Lanzarote in 2001 and left Micky and Sammy with the in-laws. Nobody knows exactly how it happened, but Sammy got away. Once she was outside, she probably didn’t know what to do, because she found herself on foreign territory. She refused to go back, but she chose to stay close in a garden two houses away. The in-laws where at a loss and didn’t know what to do, but they decided not to tell us anything, so we could enjoy our vacation.

It was weird, but even though I was thousands of kilometers away I felt something was wrong. Sammy and I were that close.

Of course we were absolutely horrified when we heard what had happened, but we quickly came up with a plan. Sammy loved her food, and she had to be starved after almost two weeks in the wild. So we rented a cat trap from the local shelter, put some cat food in it, and after a few hours we had our Sammy back 🙂 When we brought her home, she was absolutely exhausted and slept on the couch for hours. After that she demanded we feed her, of course. What a wonderful happy end this adventure had!

Friendly Fill-Ins

I again participate in the Friendly Fill-Ins, hosted by Four-LeggedFurballs and 15andmeowing. So here we go:

1. I won’t pay more than € 5 for a six pack of batteries for my hearing aid.
2. The last time I recognized the days finally are getting longer was an hour ago. I love this about spring.
3. I recently had the opportunity to see a friend I don’t see that often. It was so good to reunite.
4. Every day that went well is cause for celebration in my book.

  2. Aw I’m glad you had a catch up with a friend you don’t get to often see.
    The time when she got out must have been so worrying. Isn’t it odd you sensed something was wrong, there really is such a strong connection with our furbabies. So glad it was a safe and happy ending getting her home – good thinking on the food!
    Have a lovely weekend, Viola xx

    1. Yes, it was a hard time. I am glad my husband came up with the idea to offer Sammy some food.
      Maybe I will see my friend more often in the future, she lives in the same town where I have group therapy.
      Have a great weekend, Caz xx

  3. Sammy must have been terrified. Our son’s cat got out a few months back and was gone for several days. He later appeared on the roof terrace with another cat. It was almost as if the other cat had brought him home. I’m so glad Sammy came home and the story has a happy ending.

I am so with you on the longer days. It’s wonderful to finally see the seasons changing. I hope your week is going wonderfully!

    1. The worst thing was sitting at home and not knowing what Sammy was getting through. The people who owned the garden were very nice and didn’t mind Sammy hiding under the porch.
      Yes, milder weather would be wonderful. This coronavirus thing is getting more and more difficult to navigate here, I wouldn’t mind it going away!

      1. Please take huge amounts of L-ascorbate (vitamin C) at least 4 grams a day to keep you safe. Because my immune system is already struggling due to my chronic illnesses C is keeping away the viruses. Amazing stuff. I read about it in this book –
