Rescue!

Paddling

Another fierce storm filled the back yard with water, so Gráinne invited Floradora, Arianell and Tipsy out for a little row in the dory…

.

.

Splash

…they rowed around on the lawn for a while…

 

.

.

MEOW

…but then Gráinne heard a pitiful sound…

.

.

Beached

…so they made their way over to the woodshed…

.

.

castaway

…where the cat (after a night of mousing) had found herself surrounded by water.

.

.

Rescue!

Cat was very relieved to be rescued…

.

.

Surrounded

…and and extremely happy to keep her paws dry…

.

.

How about a bit of cream?

…all the way back to the Hitty kitchen.

  1. Intrepid Grainne! and brave crew to head out upon the waters – even the ‘muddy waters’. They are all so well-equipped and prepared in spirit to join Grainne in her own spirit of adventure. They made a great Emergency Rescue team! Appreciation abounded in me for the photographer being right there to capture it all, for us all – so expressive…

  2. The QH Hittys once again make the most of the days that are in front of them. I trust you don’t have a basement? We need them here but with all that water in the yard, mmm, there would be water inside. So glad for the feline rescue.

    • We have no basement, thankfully! Sitting on clay, the water has nowhere to go, but does recede eventually. The girls were glad to rescue the kitty-cat, who was in turn glad to be back in the Hitty Cupboard after a trying time.

  3. is that the big one for the season?? We had a transformer blow just as I was falling asleep, big flash of light and electricity out – back by morning. My garden is a lake too. Hope kitty enjoyed her cream.

    • It was quite the storm, with wind speed of over 100 km/h down in our neighbourhood- I certainly hope there won’t be another one like that for a while. Kitty did get a restorative dish of cream, and licked her whiskers neatly afterward.

  4. I hope that the water didn’t make it to the inside of your house! Stay safe and warm! And, dry! We are in the throes of a huge winter storm…. perhaps part of the system that gave you the big rain. It’s intense!

  5. The girls made a terrific search and rescue team. So glad it had a happy ending with cat being comforted by Floradora.
    Grainne’s Dory ( with paddles no less) is amazing.

  6. Poor puss, and how good to be safe and warm in the Hitty Kitchen. Or should that be Kitty Hitchen? 🙂 I do hope she got her cream while the others had a nice hot drink to warm them up.
