What do you do if you find an Unexpected Cat in the Kitchen? Well, I had to find the answer to this question yesterday, when… well… we were faced with this situation. I didn’t plan to write this post, as you can imagine, is not something you can add in your blogging schedule as it’s so unexpected.
I have no idea if she is a stray or, maybe she has an owner. Regardless, she wanted to have a snooze on our worktop, despite us having a rather big dog that is not fond of cats (or I should say that is too fond?!). She came a couple of times to us and we’ve petted her. But never imagined she will get inside the house through the open kitchen window. It never happened before. Luckily for her and for everybody else, the door was closed.
Festus, our dog, was waiting to see if anybody will open the door for him. Firstly I didn’t even see the cat, just him waiting at the door. Initially I though he is thirsty, then I saw how focused he was at something in the kitchen.
He looks like he is very calm and relaxed, but he is like this because I was taking his picture. Before that he was barking mad at the door. The cat didn’t seem too bothered though. You can see her in the background, on the worktop. The cat was sitting there, relaxing, while we were asking what should we do.
She was quite delicate I have to add. It didn’t look like she tripped any of the things on the worktop. As you can see, the plates were ready for breakfast, the cup for coffee.
My husband got in the kitchen and took her out. That was a really fun way to start the day. Of course, we had to wash all the crockery that was exposed. With all the adrenaline I had when I saw her… I didn’t need my morning cup of coffee though… maybe a cup of chamomile tea.
Did something like this ever happened to you?
