Rescuing Blue

Hugging Blue upon the Kittens return

Poor Blue (Alice’s kitten who the humans reckon is a toy and gave to their baby); in the end it took us over three days to track down the little bundle of fluff. It would appear that the baby gave it a severe gumming and then just left him discarded on the floor where Minnie, the black cat who is very jealous of any other kittens or cats, dragged him over to the fire place and hid him in a nook under the fire – fortunately, the fire wasn’t lit…

We think that blue was so traumatised by all of this that he just sat there in all the soot getting blacker and blacker. When we finally found him, thanks to one of the black and white kittens that live in the human’s house, he wasn’t even responding to all the little squeaky noises that Alice makes at cats and wiggly woos. In the end me, Zack and Jeff had to climb down into the dust and soot under the fire which was knee deep (Alice wants to state once again that this is wrong as we do not have knees; I’m not even going to respond this time.)

We waded our way through to Blue whose white patches really did look blue with all the grime in the poor little thing’s fur (Alice also wants me to stop calling Blue little as he is several wiggly pets long but I think the phrase gets over his youngness and vulnerability). We tied wool around his body in a nice harness type thing even though this did mean Zack had to use the poker to lever the kitten up so that we could pass the wool underneath him. Once that was done we climbed back out and proceeded to hoist the kitten out of the hole, which was very hard work I can tell you! (Alice says how would I know as I was only ‘supervising’ the whole operation; I’ve been trying to explain to her that organising that sort of organisation is incredibly difficult. She’s tutting at me!)

Anyway, just as we finished tugging the kitten out onto the carpet one of the humans appeared and took him off of us saying that she’d put him through the washing machine. Alice was quiet concerned at this news but the human said she’d give us blue back in perfect condition. Even so Alice went and sat up on the washing machine door and watched a forlorn looking blue going around and around looking very soggy. She said the machine vibrated so much that it was hard for her to hold on and it made her arms go numb but she has to admit that after he’d been dried Blue did look much better.

All in all it was another successful adventure – hope to see you again soon
