Weird Moments in Pet Ownership

When I went to the bathroom a few minutes ago, I was surprised to see that a couple of the vanity drawers were partly open. I tried to close them, but they bounced back. Something stuck inside?

Then an unearthly yowl of despair and misery echoed through the bathroom. I looked around and saw no cats. I spun in a circle, searching for unhappy felines in the shower, behind the toilet, in the greenhouse window. Nothing.

Then I realized the sound was coming from inside the bathroom vanity.

Yes, Ivan the Scarable had opened the drawers, climbed in, slipped or jumped behind the drawers, and got stuck there.

No matter how I tugged or lifted, the drawers wouldn't come out of the vanity. Nor would he come out.

Finally I had to go wake the Kitty Mommy herself, [personal profile] housepet, who coaxed him out. He trusts her. She told me Bear had been waking her at half-hour intervals since 1:30 this morning. I bet he knew Ivan was trapped and was trying his best Lassie imitation.

What bizarre interspecies encounters have you had lately?
