who’d have thought a cat could be so stressful

Pippin’s big day, the first time outside.

He loved it – raced into the next door neighbour’s garden (naturally), climbed a tree, got stuck, scrambled back down again, chased birds and is now back inside, cock of the walk, going completely mental and panting.

I, on the other hand, am having a lie down in a darkened room with a cold compress and won’t be letting him out again until next year. He was oblivious to the sudden burst of the neighbour’s chain saw, the oil delivery lorry’s reversing beep. My blood pressure rocketed.

I preferred it when he ran and hid under the stairs.

  1. What a poppet. He looks so like a Pippin. My son has a 16 year old cat and has just moved for about the 10th time in the last 10 years. Who says cats don’t move. However, having said she doesn’t go outside much now, he was introducing her to their small yard and she suddenly decided to leap over the wall (he thought she couldn’t manage it any more)and had to be retrieved from a neighbour’s garden.

  2. Typical cat behaviour! There are perfectly good gardens and yards, but no, they have to visit the neighbours…
