After I blogged a few months back, many of you have asked for more funnies, so here’s a few laughs……
I was once asked to pet sit for a house that had many different animals including a wallaby! When I was first approached I just dismissed it as a joke, but it wasn’t. I looked after the lovely menagerie for a couple of weeks, they got used to me and I enjoyed my visits. The house was next door to a pub and could be a bit noisy at times with lots of merry drinkers. One evening while I was putting the animals to bed for the night, a very drunk man climbed up the very high pub wall and watched me with the wallaby, to the amusement of his mates, he fell back down and shouted very loudly that there was a Kangaroo next door!! After I had popped Mr Wally into his hidden enclosure for the night, I finished up in the garden but another head appeared over the wall and asked “where’s Skippy?” I just looked at him and replied ” Skippy ? I think you guys have had too much to drink, we are in Portsmouth not Australia!”
I once entered a home and called “Hi gorgeous boy! Auntie Rachel is here for a cuddle!” to be greeted by a red faced builder!
A remember a funny but scary at the time moment when I was upstairs in a house and could hear someone in the room downstairs. No one had a key apart from me, so it had to be a burglar! I went downstairs and heard more noise from the room and so I knocked the door and asked “who\’s there! I\’m calling the police!” No one answered and the door was locked on my side, so I nervously entered……..I found to my surprise a room that did indeed look like it had been burgled, by a very large bird. The poor bird had fallen down the fireplace and was obviously frightened. I opened the door to the garden hoping the bird would just fly out, which it did but only after the resident cat appeared and tried to catch it!
I once had a white cat climb up an open fireplace and come down covered in soot and walk all over new carpet! The owners had shut her in the room in error…… vet trip for a bath was in order as she wouldn\’t let me wash her…
Lastly I once looked after a very nimble pawed cat, who could open the lid on the fish tank to drink and try to catch fish. The same cat could also open a locked cat flap! Little monkey!
I hope that has given you a few laughs and I hope to be cat sitting again soon, when we are allowed to travel.
