Our house is (as I'm typing) undergoing repairs. The whole roof above the kitchen has been stripped bare. How to explain to your four-legged friend that everyone not just She alone is living under lots of stress and discomfort? Mischievous decided to try her 'houdini skills' when I had to lock her inside the cage with Miss Malaysia. What else? She obviously got herself stuck. This is the 3rd time. The first and 2nd time she was about 1 month younger, it was easy helping her get her head out from the bars by pushing it back. This 3rd time, I must say was nerve-wrecking. She has gotten bigger and needless to say, the head has also. I can't just push her back into the cage anymore.
I tried to turn her head slightly and push...omigosh...it got stuck sideways. I have a sort of twisted dog now. Aiyeee... Many angles were tried. Then she decided she wanted to just 'walk out' in between the bars!!! She ended up choking and even gasping for air. Just be patient, I'll get you out. I had to keep telling her and stroking her to calm her.
My last resort was to let Miss Malaysia out of the cage. Hmmm...she did some talking and lots of scolding... that's what it looked like to me. I tried pushing Mischievous' head again then slightly twisting and turning by wee little degrees. Finally, she was freed. Oh... what a relief. I would like to think that Miss Malaysia did give Mischievous some tips to help me.
I have decided to get the workers to put extra bars now, just in case she decides to try and be Houdini again. Oh, it took me almost an hour to free her. She headed straight for her water bowl and me...for the fridge! Geez...the sun was scorching hot.
