Cat on a hot shingle roof
So, a few weeks ago my uncle realized my Rotten beast (whom he hates) has been getting on his roof via a water cooler, and he promptly removed the water cooler lol. The cat hasn't been up since. But last night, apparantly she jumped six diagonal feet to the roof from a 1.75 inch window ledge. She always meows at my bedroom window to get back in, so I thought nothing of it when I heard her at my window...but she didn't come running when I opened the door, just continued to cry...so I went in back and found her up there. The ledge and distance were too small and too long to jump back down, so...being a cat, she called her mom. You know that look they give you? Utter faith? You are mom, they are stuck, and you with your godlike powers will not fail to remedy their problems immediately. Ideally, this would simply involve raising a ladder to the roof, which she can probably walk down herself. But no. I had no ladder. And as she was waiting for me to fix it, I couldn't very well take the time to come up with a proper solution. What's the next best thing to a ladder? An elevator! Or in this case, a nearby chair. Its seat was broken in half, and two legs were gone. No, I did not stand on it. I raised the chair, arms fully stretched, above my head til it was within jumping distance, trying to hold the two halves together. Most cats would not have done this, but she took one look at this rickity chair (and I'm thinking, please god don't let this knock me over), jumped two feet down to the chair seat, and rode calmly to the ground on it. Miraculously, both chair and cat survived. And me.
My uncle will not know of this transgression.
