Ellie has a brand new title. The Black Gap Bandit

Final weekend, Glogirly opened the door to our tiny triangular formed storage closet we’ve in our main bedroom. Gloman retains all his tripods, digicam circumstances, and stuff in there. She needed to seize a recognizing scope and tripod to look out the window at a brush hearth that had began up in our canyon simply a few miles from our dwelling. Firefighters had been already on the scene and dealing to maintain it contained. She and Gloman had been involved although and needed a more in-depth look. 

When nobody was trying, Ellie slipped into the closet and began rifling round by way of the digicam luggage. 

Whereas Gloman watched the fireplace, Glogirly did a fast cat verify. (shaking a bag of treats all through the home to shortly set up Waffles and Ellie’s whereabouts. Waffles was Johnny-on-the-spot however Ellie was nowhere to be discovered. 

The final place Glogirly had seen or heard Ellie was in that tiny closet. She began shifting all the pieces out of it, trying inside digicam luggage, calling her title…however nonetheless no Ellie. 

The again of this closet is reverse our hearth in the lounge. And contained in the closet near the bottom and in the way in which again is a vent that leads from the skin, by way of the closet, into the wall and behind the hearth. When she acquired on her fingers and knees, she found a small gap within the wall underneath that vent. The vent is spherical and the builders should have lower a sq. gap for it to suit by way of. And tiny Ellie made her approach into the opening. 

A flashlight revealed a reasonably large house contained in the wall between the hearth and the closet. Most likely about 4′ x 6′. The flashlight additionally revealed you-know-who. However to Ellie this was only a enjoyable recreation. Glogirly and Gloman tried luring her out with all the pieces they might consider. Her favourite wand toy, treats, her plastic bottle cap fetch toy…she’d attain out to seize them, however would shortly pull her paw again in and would not come out. Glogirly might attain her hand into the opening and pet her, but it surely was in such a clumsy place, there was no solution to pull Ellie out. It was such a small gap too, Ellie should have squeezed her approach into it.

In the meantime, again to the fireplace watch. 

Though just a few timber had been nonetheless engulfed in flames, (very scary!) we might realized the fireplace was efficiently contained and everybody and their houses had been secure, Kudos to our wonderful volunteer firefighters! Glogirly and Gloman continued attempting to coax Ellie out. Had any kind of evacuation been obligatory, Glogirly was prepared to chop a big gap within the wall, bounce in herself, and get Ellie out. 

Practically two hours handed and Ellie was clearly not going to budge from her hidey-hole. 

So Gloman took the vent aside and eliminated a bit of it to open up the opening. It had been blocking Ellie’s view of the skin world and presumably inflicting her to be scared to leap again out. With the vent piece out of the way in which, she might see all of us. Particularly Waffles. 

Waffles to the Rescue!

Waffles meowed and purred like loopy. It was like he was telling Ellie it was okay to return out. 

And so she did. The Black Gap Bandit was out. And her hidey-hole is now completely blocked.

ELLIE:  However I favored my new hidey-hole.
