I stepped outside yesterday morning to shake out a throw rug
and heard little Cocoa's tiny meow coming from above me!
I looked up and saw his little eyes and ears peering over the gutter
along the roof! So I got a ladder and got myself with my shoulders
about even with the gutters and tried to get him to come to me.
But he backed away and was too scared to come!
Plan B was to go inside to the only window that opens up onto
part of the roof. I took out the screen and called to him.
The incline was pretty steep and cats don't really enjoy
walking down inclines like that! That's why climbing up trees
is easier than climbing down! lol....
He was exhausted...had a hoarse voice and he couldn't
keep his eyes open! I think he was stuck up there all night!
After about 10 minutes, he finally decided that
coming close enough for me to grab him
up was his best choice! And I told him that he was
too young for Rooftop Neighborhood Surveillance Duty!
