Yesterday afternoon when I went to the barn to feed my calves, I saw one of the kitty run and jumped on a big spool of electrical wire that my husband had left there. She quickly stuck her little head in the small hole and just stayed there. She wasn't trying to get out which I thought was odd. After a minute she was still there calmly just staying put. I wish that I had my camera with me sometimes, I missed a great shot.

 I went to pull her head out but it was good and stuck. I even turned the spool on it's side and then upside down and no way could she get her head out. I didn't want to pull because her little neck would have snapped for sure.

I called my husband who was just getting ready to milk the cows and between the two of us, it took 20 minutes to take the spool apart and to cut pieces of thick plastic to free her and not once did she tried to resist. She just was so relaxed all the time, even when I turned her on her back she was still so relaxed. It was strange seeing her so calm right up to the last second.  I think that she would make an excellent pet put I don't want to bring another cat in. I have 13 in the barn. She is actually the sister of that little abandoned kitten that I found still attached to its placenta a little while back. The mother is not a good mother and finally it has been feeding from another mother cat who had 4 kittens.

Some of my blogger friends have been having problems with posting comments lately and if this applies to you, you still can leave comments by using Firefox and google the name of the blog you want to leave a comment on and when the blog comes up, just type your comment as usual. It works.  Have a great weekend and Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends.  JB
