Today,Â a neighborâ€™s cat is acquired (with permission :-)), so our Golden Retriever, Honey, can tree it so we can photograph the scene for our artist to sketch an illustration for Spring with the Moodysâ€¦.
Cat is encouraged to run up the tree. (As a side note, we put the catÂ near the tree and THEN let Honey out. Of course, the cat ran up the tree, as Honey excitedly ran toward the tree!)
Honey is encouraged to jump up and look at the cat. Hmmmâ€¦ Cat climbed higher than we wanted! If you notice, the cat is way up in the fork of the tree.
John has to go get his ladder so that we can bring the cat out of the tree.
Heroic John to the rescue! He manages to coax the cat close enough so that he can reach her. Meanwhile, his sister is a little nervous as she watches.
Success! Cat is now in hand as he climbs down the ladder.
Okay, another try. We opted for a shorter tree this time. Honey had been put away and then brought back again as John put the cat on the tree and channeled it the direction he wanted :-).
This time the cat is much closer and Joseph can get a better picture.
Honey is put in the house, and the cat is again brought down. The hand-off from John (in the tree)Â to me occurs.
The cat is safely down!!
So, just a little adventure in capturing a picture for the next Moody book!!
Only for Jesus,
