Mental Mancat Monday

I don't think I ever told you this story.  About three months ago, when I was still a baby kitten, I was playing in the back yard one night and I climbed up on the water tanks.  They are about 2 metres tall, and there are two tanks joined together.  I like to get up there because I am closer to the birds.

Anyway, this particular night it was raining, but I didn't let that stop me.  I was up there playing, but then I FELL down between the two tanks!  I got stuck at the bottom of a very deep hole, and I couldn't get out!  Dad came outside to look for me because it was bed time, but he couldn't find me, and thought maybe I had come back inside when he wasn't looking.  So he went back inside and was calling me and calling me, but I was outside, stuck.  Eventually he came back outside and was calling me and calling me, and this time he came right around the back near the tanks, and heard me cry.

Dad had to climb on top of the tanks and try to find me!  By this time it was past 10pm and raining a lot.  He ran back inside and got a torch and some rope and a towel to try and scoop me up.  Huffle and mum came out too, I think Huffle may have been laughing at me.

Mum eventually made one of those dog-catcher stick things - you know, a long stick with a loop on the end that you can tighten around the neck - and dad stuck it down the hole and caught me, then had to drag me up by the throat!

It was not good fun but luckily I survived.  I was very wet and a little bit cold but mum had some fluffy towels to dry me off.

The next day dad went and bought this stuff and covered over the holes between the tanks.

Teddy 64

He really knows how to ruin my good time. But don't worry, I was back up on the tanks the next day!

Teddy, you are quite the adventurer, aren't you? And yes, Huffle probably was laughing at you.

Mr Puddy said...

OMC !!!!! You was so lucky, Teddy !!! So so lucky !!!
Your dad heard you cried !!!! And thanks to your daddy ! he knew what he did to help you got up . It was sure, That can't be fun ! I'm so happy you was safe
I don't think Huffle could laugh at you though, whatever she is your sis, she didn't show you love...much, but it's doesn't mean she doesn't love you. I'm sure she had been worried about you otherwise she didn't to come out with your mom.

All good now ! I'm so glad !!! And thanks to post this story. I'm sure your story can make all of pawsrents think about where's in the house should be concerned for our own safety.

Hugs

So Teddy, if you lived in the States, you would wish him Happy Fathers' Day, give him a kiss and tell him how much you love and appreciate him :-)

Sparkle said...

Teddy, yeah, Huffle was TOTALLY laughing at you! But I think you had the last laugh, because it just made your human make it safer for you to look at the birds.

barb @iPhoneographi said...

Teddy Westlife, I just ♥ you to bits and pieces. You make my Mental Mancat Trio of Trouble (now with added Gracie) seem easier, which they totally aren't.

Katnip Lounge said...

Tillie and Georgia said...

BAD BAD Teddy Westlake!

Prancer Pie said...

Teddy! You must scare your rents half to death! You must listen to Huffle more often. Sometimes it's hard to know where you kittens will find trouble. Purrs

Athena said...

Oh, Teddy! That must haf been so scary, not just for you but for your parents also! Well, not for Huffle.

The Island Cats said...

Teddy, you like to live dangerously.

Cat said...

Oh Teddy we think you might be a bit naughty!

Nadbugs said...

No ham down there, Ted. Best stay topside.

Stella said...

Oh dear, Teddy: It sounds like you didn't learn much from that little accident. Better be careful!

Kisses,

Stella

Cory said...

Teddy Westlife...you are a stinker!!!! I mean I would be all sympathetic and stuff...poor wittle kitten stuck and all that...but you got back on the tanks the next day??

Cheeky cheeky boy!

Furkidsmom said...

That's so scary! We're glad you're okay. Please don't scare your parents (or us) like that any more.

Dear Teddy, That wuz a reel a-citin' storee! I bet Huffle wishez she cud du dat!

Oh, but the Human says, "Bad Kitten!" She says kittens should not do things like that that scare their Humans so much.

Suka said...

hey Teddy,

Just as I expected - you are an X-treme kitty! That was a scary story, and I am so furry happy your dad finally heard you and was able to save you. I think Huffle Mawson might have been snickering at your dilemma, but I bet inside she was happy that you were safe. :->

Raymond and Busby said...

Teddy, you are sure lucky your Daddy heard you crying or you might have been stuck for a long time!

Natalie said...

Oh, poor Teddy! That sounds very traumatic. I'm sure Huffle's snickering at your distress was not at all helpful. Thank goodness your dad is fixing the hole so that doesn't happen again!

Diamond said...

Teddy I don't think Huffle would laugh at you when you were in serious danger. A good thing you survived.

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Oh how dangeruss! Teddy ~ yoo need something to keep yoo owt of mischief so we've tagged yoo for a meme in tomorrow's post.

Kwee Cats said...

Wow, gosh what a story. You bees so brave! We sure are glad they was able to get you out. We like fluffy towels too, especially when there is a basket of them all warm right out of the dryer.

Happy Mancat Monday to you :-)

oliverandruby said...

Oh Teddy I'm glad you didn't tell me about it at the time as I would have been so worried about you!

Princess Jasmine said...

Awww Teddy, that was a very close thing. Glad you got rescued safely. I'm sure Huffle was a little worried at the time even though she may tease you about it now :)xx

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Bibi-Chan, Vidock said...

You clearly like to live dangerously, Teddy! Let me repeat what they always tell me: you must be careful because if anything happens to you, it will break your Mum's heart (and your Dad's!).

Purrs,

Teddy you're like a stunt kitten!

The Whiskeratti said...

Oh, Teddy! We bet your 'rents say that a lot about you, don't they ? :)

Forever Foster said...

You're a flipping lunatic, Teddy. Honestly.

The Army of Four said...

That looks like some kinda cool thing from an obstacle course! Go, Hambone, GO!!!
...and I'm SURE Huffle wasn't laughing at you ... really!
Play bows,
Zim

Danielle said...

I agree with Khyra! Boy cats have an endless potential for mischief. Especially Teddy, it seems.

Andy, Kiefer and Gus said...

That's OK Teddy. Kiefer keeps getting stuck behind the washing machine. It's a tight squeeze so he doesn't have enough room to jump back up. He usually has to sit and meow and meow before momcat notices somethings wrong. She has to grab him around his necks to get him outs. He doesn't learn. I laugh at him.

Au and Target said...

Teddy you are a trouble fluff all right. Glad you are safe!

The Crew said...

Teddy, you must never do anything like that again. I'm sure your Mom & Dad were very worried about you. Oh...and Huffle too!

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

Teddy thank goodness you are ok!!! I am so glad your Daddy fixed the problem!

Ailsa and Angel Brodie said...

Hi Teddy. I'm Burtie, and I'm trying to do a lookalike page one I work out "pages" when I do can I have a picture of you please

The Thundering Herd said...

Have we ever mentioned that the hu-dad's sister used to have a solid black cat - that looked sort of like the Huff. Well, that cat climbed up on the washing machine one day and found a way in between the walls of the house. Which was all fun until she slipped and fell between the walls and started crying for help. So the hu-dad's dad had to remove sheetrock to help her get out. Oh, and she did it again the next night.

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Wow, what an adventure! Our dad had to form one of those dog catcher things when we were in Seattle because Steve and I cornered an opossum and Dad caught it and let it go in the front yard, hoping it would go find a new yard to live in. I think it would be funny to see him catch Wilbur, but I guess you don't agree.
