I feel so bad.

But it’s not my fault!

The other day I decided to drive the Blazer to work.  You know to kinda justify the insurance and registration, plus it’s only like 5 blocks from the house.  What could go wrong?

Well the Blazer made it to work, and even ran a few errands around town without incident!  (Yes, it was a proud moment).  But there’s still a lot that needs done on that thing so I popped the hood and after about twenty minutes I noticed an ANIMAL stuck in the passenger fender between the battery.  “Oh no.  How long has it been there… please don’t be dead.” I poke it and it’s warm to the touch and squirms a bit.  “It’s alive!”. It seems to be a cat.  I try to figure out how the heck it got in there, but I can’t for the life of me.  So I have to take the battery out, and can tell it’s starting to get scared.  So with the battery removed I try to pull the cat out, while keeping it in a position that will keep my forearm intact should it FLIP OUT!  I can’t get it out, so I decide to go inside and get some food and see if I can lure it out.  By the time I’m walking out the door with food in hand, I see a white cat hauling ass down the driveway and down the alley out of sight.  I knew there was no way I was catching it so I let it go.

That’s not why I feel bad.

Yesterday as I was leaving work I noticed the older lady next door.  She was standing in her back yard calling “Kitty!  Heeere kitty kitty!”

But it’s not my fault!  Really!

  1. We had a cat gone for 2 weeks came back very skinny.

  2. Think of it like this. Somewhere there is a kid wanting to have a kitten and this one wandered in their yard.

    Didn’t know it was a white cat. Want to hear a coincidence? I have a white cat hanging out in my back yard in the evenings! Not really relevant to your story, just the only two white cats I’ve seen or heard of in quite a while.

  3. lol awwwwwwwwwwwww how sad. I agree not your fault though.
