DANGER LURKING EVERYWHERE
Just wanted to warn you about something that happened yesterday.
I have wood blinds on my windows. I have always had them, and have never had a problem. I have a picture window in my living room with a plant shelf and it is Shelby's favorite place to sleep.
We all know that we can't move without our Havs following us. So when I went to get the paper yesterday morning, I guess they were following me. All of a sudden, I heard the most blood curdling screams coming Shelby. There was only the 3 of us in the house, so I coudn't imagine what was happening to her. I thought she was fighting with one of the cats. When I ran back inside, there she was, dangling from my couch. The cord to the blinds had somehow gotten wrapped around her tail (thank goodness it wasn't her neck), and when she went to jump off the couch, it tightened up. As soon as I picked up my poor, shrieking baby, the tension loosened and the cords fell away.
Happy to say Shelby and her tail are fine. Except for being traumatized for a few hours, all is well. She kept looking at the blinds like they were aliens. She shook and sat on my lap for a while, then gradually made her way back to the shelf. So please be very careful. There are dangers everywhere we don't even think about.
