To Catch a Cat
My friend William Feela posed a question today about what to do when showing a home and a cat escapes.
Though I don’t care for these creatures much, I do appreciate that many others seem to like them and even consider them favored family members.
I have two sister in laws who are really into cats, even enter them in cat shows, though I rib them about this on occasion I do respect their hobby and attachment to their feline friends.
Being a farm kid, where a herd of cats is often kept around just to keep the farm free of rodents.
I know about catching cats and the inherent danger of doing so. They can be very dangerous, with very sharp claws and teeth that can easily bite a finger off.
So I do not recommend attempting to catch one of these critters, even if it can be fun to watch people make this attempt.
And Yolanda Hoversten , makes an important point that should be considered before any cat catching venture is begun, who pays the hospital bills.
The best solution is always to call the owner of these things, since they seem to like them, it may be much safer for them to go out and catch them.
You may also want to try MIKE ROCK ’s solution, but this could get expensive so you had better have a client ready to submit a very good offer in order to get your money back.
Or could call in a crew of Cowboys who specialize in this type of venture…
