Bubba the cat loved high spaces but never remembered that he was too afraid to jump down from those high spaces.
In my previous home the bathroom had really high ceilings and a plant ledge near the ceiling. Bubba loved the plant ledge. He could jump on the bathtub, then onto the top of the shower enclosure then up to the ledge where he would enjoy the sunshine but then he could not get down by himself. He would yowl until I could get the ladder from the garage, set it up precariously halfway in the tub and halfway on the tile, and try to grab one or two of his legs while he cowered in the very back reaches of the ledge. What fun.
My subdivision had several houses nearby that had the same floor plan as mine. One day Bubba escaped outside. A neighbor one block over who I did not know called me and said she thought my cat was in her bathroom. She'd had her front door open most of the day, Bubba had wandered in unnoticed, climbed up into her identical bathroom plant ledge and was now howling to get down.
I had to drag my ladder to her house and perform the same precarious maneuvers to remove him. She was very kind and we both got a laugh out of it but I was so embarrassed. And I still have no idea how she managed to read my contact information from his tag.
Bubb could be my JT's brother. When JT was a teenager, he got out of the house twice. Once he got stuck on the roof. He was freaking out, but would not come down, even though there was a tree branch right by him. The other time he got out, DF came and got me from work and was telling me he could not find him. JT is my cat, he will not go to anyone else, and he won't answer anyone else if they call him. We get home and I start calling him, he's answering me, from under the Durango we just climbed out of. I look under, and there is no JT, but he is still talking to me. DF calls my ex to see if he can bring the boys over because where JT is stuck, his arm is too big to get in there. My older son is able to get him out. He had no injuries, but he was a little warm. Thankfully, work was only about a 6 mile round trip.
