I love dogs and I LOVE people who love dogs. Just raked up a giant pile of leaves? Heck yeah, the dog can run through it and jump in it! My kind of people. Also, I’m totally jealous of their big back yard. Saffron, our dog, would love all that space!
Cats are such amazing creatures, but there not always this lucky. Lucky the cat fell 26 stories and survived. It started when he got into a room with an open window and squeezed out onto the ledge. Window washers on a nearby building spotted him and snapped 3 pictures—Lucky on the ledge, Lucky falling, and Lucky walking around on the balcony 26 floors down. Wow!
Cats don’t have good judgment about heights and they can & do fall. It’s common enough to have a name—High-Rise Syndrome.
