Ahh, don't you hate it when this happens? You just go out for awhile, and the next thing you know a cat has gotten themselves tangled in your blinds and can't get out of. One of TPP's kitty girls frequently locks herself into a room by closing the door aggressively, but she only gets out when someone notices she's missing (not a quick learner). Now this cat is about 3 times the size of the average housecat, which is about 8 pounds. So this bobcat is about the size of the F1's Maine coon cat (26.5 pounds!). Ours once ruined a set of draperies because they were in his way and claws just open drapes differently than fingers. But, and here's the good news, no one attempted or even suggested shooting the cat! Hmm, then this story could not be from the USA where that's always the first solution to animal problems.
