Big Game Hunter

FAZ:  This is me, big game hunter, stalking my prey on the grass plains of the Serengeti 

BIRKS:  Excuse me Faz, don't you mean the grassy plains of Wimbledon?

Cat stranded up tree for 7 days - OMG!


A frightened cat spent seven days stuck 100ft up a giant redwood tree - because the fire brigade's ladder was too short to reach her, it emerged yesterday. Mischevious tabby Tiggs, one, shot up the huge tree after being scared by a dog in a neighbouring garden at her home in Buckden, near St Neots, Cambridgeshire. Worried owners Natasha Moore, 22, and daughter Chloe, four, frantically hunted for the missing moggy but only heard Tiggs' cries from the lofty branch five days later. They called in the firebrigade and the RSPCA, but the 45ft  ladder on the engine was still over 50ft short of reaching her in the tree.

This is part of a 5000 year old petrified forest on the beach near Hastings where we live.  You can only see it a couple of times a year when the tides are at their lowest.  It reminds me of Birks's head (soaked old wood - he he he - serves him right for stealing all my munchies last night).
