Chasing the Cat

So, I've got this cat. And he's a pain in the ass because he's a big fan of doing irritating things. For instance, last night, my window was open. He looked up at it and thought "hmm, I like high places and that is higher than the floor." So he jumps onto the sill. Then he looks through it and thinks "hmm, that looks like a lot more space than this little window sill." So he starts pressing on the edge of the screen, which is not exactly airtight sealed, until it gives enough that he can shoot out onto the roof.

I realize this, of course, and head for the window just in time to see him dart out onto the roof. Obviously the cat didn't listen to my demands to return inside, and therefore I found myself shortly outside on the roof.

Keep in mind it's 12:30 at night, cloudy, with a 3/4 full moon, but even in the dark I swear I saw that thing smile at me like he thought this was a fun game we were playing. My roof is also quite steep (as most are around here so snow falls off) and it took me a minute to realize that socks offer virtually no traction on shingles. So I end up barefoot, carrying said socks, in my PJs, chasing my cat up and down my roof and trying not to fall off and break something.

Eventually I caught the little bastard and basically tossed him back in through the window. Stupid cat.

STOOPID cat owner!!!! LOL! Sounds like he really "gotcha"..he's telling all his kitty friends how he got you out on the roof in your PJ's!!!!! (Oh how I would have loved to see that!) This is what 911 calls are made of!!!

LoL that was foremost on my mind, because even if I fell off that roof and broke half the bones in my body, I was not calling 911. I would've crawled to my car and found a way to drive it to the hospital because there's NO way I was going to end up on the news as the guy that fell off the roof chasing his cat.
