Dory's bad day

Dory is one of our cats who started as a foster kitten with us last fall and never left, along with her brother Scooter.  She's very sweet but not the brightest star, I think there was some inbreeding in her home.  On top of that, the two of them mat no matter how much we brush them.

So on Friday I took her in and they gave her a lion cut.  She is pretty funny looking now.

In the afternoon her day went from bad to worse.  Steve was in the office on the phone and with it being a lovely day the window was open.  Well Buddy and Dory were playing and Buddy chased her into the room and Dory was going so fast that she burst through the screen and out the second floor window.  Steve ran downstairs and discovered Dory hanging on the pergola that thankfully is under the window, Dory looking a bit bewildered.  He grabbed her and pulled her back in to safety and quickly did a head count to make sure none of the others had also gotten out.  Thank God she didn't injure herself or run away.  Even a screen isn't necessarily that secure, so we will be more careful with the windows.
