Pets! How do they manage to do this to themselves?
I had to go get one of our trucks inspected (of course DH has to wait until the last minute) and it wouldn't pass because of a small hole by the driver's door. The mechanic told me to pick up a can of expandable foam, fill the hole, then just trim off the excess flush with the rest of the door. Went to the hardware store and got the foam, filled the hole and waited for it to dry. Perfect. Until I looked out the window and saw the CAT!
She was walking kinda wonky and looked like she was dragging her tail in the snow. She had apparently rubbed up the side of the truck so now had foam on her tail! Then she didn't want to be caught so by the time I finally caught her, her tail was about 3" in diameter and weighted about 2 lbs. Out come the scissors and the fun began. It was looking like something that belonged on WWF with me getting body slammed by a 10 lb. cat! I finally got her in a headlock and started to remove the foam. But it wasn't completely dry so now I'm STUCK TO THE CAT! After about a half hour I managed to get "unstuck" and now have cat hair stuck to my palms. After about 45 minutes and 3 bottles of nail polish remover the cat and I were back to "normal" until.....the bath. Cats really, really, really don't like baths (or at least she didn't!).
The "kitty" is still holding a grudge from being brought to the vet so she's extremely pi$$ed now - she hasn't been in the house in 2 days.
Oh yea, as far as the truck, DH said "Oh I bought a door panel for the truck and I'm having it installed today".
Disclaimer: No animals were harmed in this production. Me, OTOH, not so much.
Reminds me of the time I had a grooming parlor in the back of a pet shop. They sold small animals and reptiles, and every once in a while, there would be an Unauthorized Expedition.
The escaped hamster wins the Best Story Award, though.
She managed to climb the water bottle and pushed up the lid to her enclosure. It wouldn't have been too big a deal - she was really quite friendly because she had been a pet brought in for re-homing - but she had crawled under the back door and into a working zone that was being re-floored. You guessed it, she was covered in floor glue.
Guess who had to get the wee-est, tiniest Midget clipper with a #50 blade out to shave the hamster????? Yes, that would be me...
Has to be the oddest work experience on anyone's resume - shaving a hamster.
Don't tell me about what you can't do. That's boring. Show me what you can do. - Mom
A friend's fuzzy cat managed to jump into a hanging fly strip, then blasted through the house howling and spitting and covering herself in TP, a washcloth, a sock and some other small items. THEN she got stuck to the bottom of the carrier my friend put her in to get her to the vet. Hours and a handful of happy pills later, all was fine. The cat looked like it had fallen in a blender while her fur grew back, though. I still almost pee myself thinking about it.
