The Fugitive

The spare cat is on the run again. The internets tell us this is a phase called "establishing his perimeter." When he comes back, we'll be entering the phase called "circumscribing his perimeter" - or, in layman's terms, "chopping his paws off."

Needless to say, if you come across him, etc, etc...

Update, Monday Morning 10AM: Apparently he's figured out how to get out, but not back, and spent much of the night trapped in the patio of an empty house next door, unable to scale the 15-foot wall back home. He was rescued by lowering on the end of a rope an LL Bean canvas tote bag emblazoned with the 60 Minutes logo - possibly the only valuable Christmas gift I ever received from my ex-employer.

Is he escaping over the roof top the same way Lucy did?
How many times did she do it before she stopped?

Though, you did get a few bottles of wine. Getting your drink on is surely valuable.

I'm happy to hear that he's home again.

If you love something . . . drag it home zipped up inside a dirty ol' duffle bag.

Adding to Dan's comment:

...if it stays, microchip it and it's yours forever. If it leaves again, get a new cat.

Who's in charge of cat security, anyway?

If suffocates and dies inside, it's yours. If it claws its way out and scurries off into the night, it never was.

I explicitly told you that you were to give that bag to Mike Wallace. I expect you to return it to him immediately. (Wash it out first. You know how his allergies are.)
