Who Is Dolly?
Dolly is perhaps the
most adventuresome cat on the planet Earth.
Todd's wife Lisa adopted her at the local SPCA
and she is now a member of our family.
On a regular basis
(about every 3 weeks as of late), Dolly gets
chased up a tree. Typically, Dolly
climbs to an altitude of 20' or so... which is
convenient since we own an 18' ladder.
Recently Dolly decided to go a little higher
As you can see, Dolly is way up there.
Her exact altitude was determined using advanced
trigonometry and triangulation. But after 2 days
of being stuck, we figured it was time to stop
calculating and leapt into action... it was
getting to be a life or death situation.
Google suggests that when a cat is up this high,
the only safe solution is to cut the tree down
and control the fall rate with rope.
After about 30 minutes of Lumber Jacking, the
tree fell gently to the ground and out came
Dolly (shown above) is safe and sound but was
very dehydrated. After this ordeal,
Dolly submitted to drinking tap water rather
than her preferred Aquafina bottled.
The tree measured 73 feet top to bottom:
A day later, Dolly was back to her normal
self... below she is pictured practicing for the
