Funny cat stories - How the cat lost nine lives
The story of how the cat lost eight out of nine lives features in this series of cat cartoons.
We used to have a ginger cat, called Ginger (yes I know….thinking up orginal names for pets was never one my families strong areas…) who was a real little terror when younger – seemingly possessing no fear whatsoever.
That is until the day he fell through the conservatory roof. He had a glass conservatory at the back of the house that my father had built. The roof was slanting, and it was possible for an enterprising cat to get onto the roof by scrambling out of one of the upper bedroom windows. Ginger discovered this one day and proceeded to wander about, gaining a new view of the world, while trying to avoid sliding off.
Suddenly there was a huge crash, and we rushed into the conservatory expecting to find a bloody cat. Ginger was completely unharmed, having fallen through one of the glass panels which must have had a crack in it. He must have traded in a few lives that day…
So that's a little bit about the inspiration behind what I hope will be the start of a series of funny cat stories.
Anyway, on with the tale.
How the cat lost nine lives
If you don’t look before you leap
You might pay a price, it might be steep
Straight over a fence with one bound you leap
And land on a Rottweiler fast asleep
The cat was hungry and full of greed
And so sat down to an almighty feed
He kept on eating more and more
Until his legs couldn’t touch the floor
The cat was sleepy; it was a sunny day
And so on the car roof to sleep he lay
The car sped off with a loud roar
And the cat clung on with his claws
Chased by a big dog the cat did flee
And escaped by climbing the nearest tree
But the branch was thin and it did snap
The fell and landed on the dog with an almighty whack
The cat while looking for a place to sleep
Settled down in the machine amongst the sheets
The drier started up and the cat got dizzy
But finally staggered out, it’s fur all frizzy
The cat was hungry when he saw the fish
So he jumped right in to catch this dish
But he lept straight out with a big wail
For the piranha had clamped on to his tail
The cat was looking for a bird to stalk
When it was suddenly swooped upon by a really big hawk
The cat was worried as to what would follow
But luckily was too big for the baby birds to swallow
One day when out mousing to earn his keep
The cat looked in the garage, to have a peak
He crawled under the car, and under there sat
A very big and mean super-rat
