Photo Hunt: High
Here’s my kitten, Nyx, showing off her sore belly, after she was spayed. What does this have to do with high? Well, I’m sure she was high when the medication wore off! She even kind of looks like it, in this picture. But, no, that’s not the whole story.
These pictures were taken November 23, so Nyx had been living with us about two months. She was still a kitten and not as worried about her incision as I was. As I was going about my day, in and out of the house while cleaning and puttering, I noticed that Nyx was not around. So, I went on a hunt for her (the camera goes with me pretty much everywhere).
This very tall tree is outside near to the burn barrel, always a favorite hang-out for the pets — I’m sure because we get so many nocturnal visitors. As I was investigating over here (with a trail of pets behind me!), I heard a mysterious crying from an unidentified source. I looked over and under everything in sight, but couldn’t locate the distressed mewing cries.
I FINALLY thought to look up, and high, high, above me was this dark blob in the tree (I’m sorry I don’t have a program to put an arrow on here for you. She is almost centered). Nyx had gotten herself stuck!
She was so high in the tree, that I couldn’t balance the ladder myself. You can barely see the ladder by the water tank. So I tried the top of the van. The tree extends high above the top of this shot of the van, so that didn’t work. Eventually, I called Wubby, and she hurried home from work (we live out in the country, so this isn’t a simple task) to help me.
Eventually we got that dark blob you see in the middle of this picture down. She was safe and hadn’t torn her incision, nor had she cured herself of climbing in high places! This has not been the only rescue, only the most involved!
Can anyone tell me what kind of tree that is? It gets the prettiest caterpillars — yellow with a black stripe. Eventually our water puddles fill with very pretty white moths, with blue under-wings. It’s possible that may be what led Nyx up this tree in the first place.
