I like pretty things

Dev on the roof

So I just came over to play Halo with Peter around 11 pm... and when I was over... Peter mentioned that he was worried because he heard a lot of mewling earlier... and Dev hadn't come home since 3 pm.

So I got worried and eventually went outside and started calling out "Dev! Dev!"
I heard mewling in response.. and I went in to tell Peter I heard mewling.. at that time a neighbour of Peter's asked me: "Are you looking for a black cat? He's up there."

Dev is on the roof. Of the 2 storey apartment building. He's stuck there. We just tried to get him out with a basket and a chair.. with Peter lifting the basket on the edge of the 2nd storey fence, and me grabbing hold to Peter. He almost got into the basket too..

Finally we gave up. 311 said that animal control won't come for cats.

Ok.. we're going to try again.
I like pretty things

we saved dev!

i suggested rigging an ironing board to a part of the window jutting out.. he wouldn't get on it and peter suggested another windowsill that dev had gone on before.. so we went there.. then finally with food, we got him on the ironing board.. but we had no way of getting cat down so i reached up, held him by the scruff.. his claws were all out, and he started digging into the ironing board, i dragged him out, his claws got on peter's arms which were holding the ironing board, then i lifted him down.

dev is safe!
