“I was stuck in a tree, 80 feet up, for 5 days in 95 degree heat. When a lumberjack tried to rescue me, I attacked him.”
A dog from up the street chased our cat, RC Charley, up a tree. We tried everything to get him down, but he just kept climbing higher and higher each day. After being in the tree for 5 days, we knew we would have to do something, or he would die. We had a friend that used to be a lumberjack come out to climb the tree to bring him down. Since RC Charley had been in the tree for 5 days without any food or water, and was probably suffering from heat exhaustion due to it was 90 degrees all week, we assumed he would be tired and happy that someone was there to help him. That was not the case! When our friend reached the top of the tree, RC Charley full-on attacked him! Our friend had to “battle” our cat for 15 minutes to finally get him into an animal-safe drawstring bag to bring him down.
The tin foil is supposed to deter our three dogs from sleeping on the “good” furniture and it does work for the Dobie. Dude, on the other hand, is not scared by a little piece of tin foil and makes himself quite at home on the back of the cushions. He’s never sorry for squishing the cushions.
