funny cat stories

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.
