Shimshi To The Rescue - Twice!

Hallo again, Effurybody!

It's Me here, Trixie the Black Panfur, Alpha-Cat Extraordinaire.

Mummy brought her little nieces round for a short visit, to meet my little brofur, Shimshi. It didn't bother Me, as I was ensconced on top of the highest kitchen cupboard. Caspurr ran under the bed as soon as the three intruders walked through the door. He doesn't like having to confront so many strangers at once.

Well, Mummy's nieces (our Human cousins) just loved Shimshi, and of course, Shimshi loved all the attention, but one of the twins lay on the bed and tried to purr-suade Caspurr to come out. Something must have spooked him because he just shot out from his hiding place, raced into the kitchen and disappeared.

After the intruders visitors had gone, Mummy started looking for Caspurr, but he was nowhere to be found. Mummy went all around the appurtment, calling for him, but to no avail. She even asked Me and Shimshi if we could help find him, but We didn't know where he was either. Eventually, she decided he would come out when he was ready and decided to go and have a shower. But Shimshi wasn't ready to give up and went on looking for his Big Brofur.

Just as Mummy was preparing to have her shower, Shimshi came running to her and then ran away and back again , and away again and it was clear to Mummy that he wanted Her to follow him. So she did and She couldn't understand why he was sniffing at something under the fridge. So she knelt down on the floor and looked under the fridge - and there was Caspurr, crying in distress! Mummy hadn't thought to look there before, because She was sure Caspurr was much too fat, portly, big to get under the fridge. He must have got in from the back, where there is a wider opening and now he was in a panic and didn't know how to get out again.

Mummy didn't know how to get him out either. Then She had an idea. She asked Shimshi to show Caspurr how to get out of that tight spot. She moved the fridge out, and Shimshi went round the back and crawled in next to Caspurr. But Caspurr still didn't come out, so Shimshi went right in there next to him, to encourage him. And then he must have talked to Caspurr, and shown him the way out, because at long last, Caspurr turned round and came out the same way he had got in, and hid out again under the bed. 

Then, Shimshi decided that Under The Fridge was a fun place to hide out so he went back in, till Mummy tempted him out with some noms. And once Shimshi was out, She began to push the fridge back into place - till She heard squealing and She looked and saw Shimshi squished between the fridge and the wall, miaowing furry loudly. She quickly moved the fridge to release him - he wasn't  really squished - and he ran off to find Caspurr and make sure his Big Brofur was okay.

Shimshi is a real Pest sometimes, but I've got to hand it to him this time. He rescued Caspurr, not once but twice today. Once, when he found him - when nobody else could do so. And then again, when he showed him the way out of a furry, furry tight spot.

Good for Shimshi (purrs)!

oh my gosh. You're going to have to check all the places where Caspurr could get himself into trouble.

Caspurr must have been very scared of the humans to squeeze himself under the fridge! Hooray for Shimsi -- we are so proud of you!
