She would then stand there very still. Then there would be a quick splash and she would walk out with a fish. She never minded being wet and was very good at fishing.

That was excellent! The part where you realised you'd inadvertently been stalking a policeperson on patrol, the wrong police car was the final straw for me. I was on the floor rolling with laughter! Thank you for sharing this endearing story. Very comforting to hear you still get some good police persons. Would you mind if I shared this story in my WhatsApp group and FB?

I had a cat go down our fireplace chimney. No fire was going...fortunately. I really thought I was going to have to go through the bricks to get it. But I forced the draft open wider with a 2x4. It apparently saw the light and dropped down and crawled out. No vet Bill's, but it did need a bath.

I had too many cats around, only 3 or 4 I claimed, but a crowd of feral or neighbor cats that were around. (I caught all the ferals I could and had them neutered, them brought them back.) There were uneasy alliances between some of them, lots of dislike between others.
One night there was a BAD storm. I had a lofted waterbed, and noticed my cats came up with me. Woke up in mid storm, looked down and there were 17 cats in my bed! I didn't even KNOW some of them!! There was a truce during the storm, there was no chaos up there, they all just came up to hide with me where it was safe, then went back out as quietly as they came up, and the truce was over.

A talent for hunting Bats. I dont know where or how but he would catch them and bring them inside to share his awesome squeaky toy with the other boys. His record was 15 in less then a month. I'll try to track down a picture of him with one of his prizes.
