SNICKERS BOOK PAGE-3




Hi everyone I am back again. As you can see from the picture above I am at my second best hobby, watching TV especially if there are birds or cats on there, some times I even like to watch those things going across the screen when Mommy has that black box on her lap and I can't get up there.

Mommy was grocery shopping the other day and found another cute cat book with lots of neat stuff in it about cats and I asked her to share some of it with you.

Here is some short stories about cats.

"TIGER, THE HERO"


Tiger the cat saved her owners' lives when she noticed that a pile of varnished-soaked rags was smoldering--and rousted Paul and Lynn Ruble out of bed in the nick of time! Tiger's agitated meowing awoke the couple in time for Paul to snuff out the fire just as their Newbury Park, Calif., home was set to go up in flames.



"SPARKS FLEW FROM SPARKY"

There's no more loyal buddy than Sparky the cat, who bravely hurtled herself at a savage pit bull that was mercilessly ravaging Sparky's poodle pal Lacy Jane.
The heroic four-pound fur ball sank her claws into the pit bull's head and scratched and hissed until the bully dog took to its heels and ran for its life.

Although poodle Lacy Jane was badly injured, thanks to Sparky, she's still alive today. "Spark's a real heroine," declared the owner of both Sparky and Lacy Jane. "Another moment or two, and Lacy Jane would have been dead."

"As a reward, we bought her a can of expensive cat food. She ate it all, then strolled away with her nose in the air. She knew it was no more that she deserved."




"TALE OF A PRODIGAL CAT"


Charlotte Holm Larsen had given up hope of ever seeing her missing kitten Venus again--until an animal shelter phone to say Venus had turned up.

Ony problem: It was a full 11 years later!

So where was Venus, who went astray while her Copenhagen, Denmark, owner was on vacation--all that time?

Apparently the cat was found and looked after by members of a Cats' Friends Society in a town 160 miles from Venus' home.

But a decade went by, and it was only when grooming Venus that her adopted parents discovered a faint tattooed identification number under her fur, which led them to her original owner.




"HOME SWEET HOME"


Mimine the gritty kitty trudged over 250 miles in 22 months to be reunited with his 12-year-old master.

This faithful feline was separated from his young owner, Bertrand Craye, when the boy and his parents visited their summer home in the south of France. When they returned two-year-old Mimine had run away!

The family searched for a month and finally adopted another cat. Months later, they returned to their country home. And after they arrived. Mimine showed up!

The courages cat had traveled 250 miles over fields, roads, woods and even the River Seine to reach them. He was skin and bones and walked with a limp, but otherwise was fine.


ONE CLEAN CAT!


If cats really have nine lives, then Bozley the kitten has used up quite a few already.

Bozley survived an ordeal that would have killed a lesser breed. She got into trouble as she was investigating the family washing machine in her London home--and finished up going through the prewash, spin, and hot wash cycles.

She was saved when her owner was alerted by a strange bumping noise. Bozley was rushed to the vet and, incredibly, after an injection and a nap, she was as right as rain eight hours later.
