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!
