The rescue of Narla

Looking out of the window early one morning I spotted a neighbour's cat Narla sitting on the ledge under her bedroom window. Yes the same Narla we brought the kennel on a skateboard for!

I went out to see what she was up to and she shouted in a distressed meow 'Help meeeee owwww, I'm stuck' She was too, there was nothing solid for her to jump down on. I couldn't think how she'd got up there either!

'Granny power' to the rescue, we daren't spare the time to get dressed so Babz and I were parading around in our housecoats over nighties and poor Sylvia was in her pyjamas as she'd just jumped out of bed. She brought out her step ladders and I grabbed the camera while Babz stood guard to make sure that darned cat didn't fall off the ledge.

A neighbour, fully dressed, was sweeping outside her gate but didn't take any notice, I expect she just thought it was some sort of cat lovers ritual lol.

Soon Narla was safely back on the ground and asking for some breakfast. We pondered how on earth she'd got up there in the first place, but then I noticed the bedroom windows of her house were open quite a way, so it seems she must have jumped out of one onto the ledge.

Her dad wasn't kidding when he said she won't stay in long! lol

Narla really is the Queen of the Cul de Sac, getting all you ladies running around after her. She's blessed to have such willing devotees at her beck and call.

Thanks Jane, glamorous is something we've never been called lol
Luckily all our neighbours tolerate Narla sitting on their cars and as it's a cul de sac we live in it's rare she's in danger walking about, but we do keep a close eye on her to make sure.
One problem is she's so friendly she will go to anyone but we have some lovely kids around here and she enjoys a lot of fuss from them.
She's around 12 years old now from what her dad tells us!

Well I hope Narla was honoured to be rescued by such a glamorous rescue squad. She's a right little character and I'm glad she's got you looking out for her.

Cat lovers ritual. That is the best ever. There is nothing like woman (okay, granny if we must) power to the rescue! I love you ladies. Indeed.

Excellent series of 'Cat Adventures" which could be serialised into a telivision documentary before the invention of the "Internet".Thanks to the "Internet Power", the telivision media has become accessible to common people in the form of its new avatar the "Internet".
