For your entertainment!

This story is just too ridiculous for to have made up. It totally sounds like I did. BUT, I have pictures to prove it, as you will see at the end of this post.....

Today was a hectic day. I decided that I would run to good ol' Taco Bell for lunch. So I get in my car and immediately notice that it smells kinda funky, okay... it smelled REALLY funky. I made a mental note to investigate the smell when I got home this afternoon. Well, as I pull out of the school, I hear this horrendous hiss and meowing. I look in my rear view mirror and about that time, I see this black cat come from the very back of my vehicle and jump over the backseat. I immediately recognize it as one of our two cats. This cat though happens to be more or less a stray..... it is extremely wild. It begins literally running around my car making all kinds of racket. I immediately just start driving the 20 minutes to our house, thinking that if I was to open the door it would dart out and get hit by a car. So I call and get my class covered (thanks Mitzi!) and begin the journey home. In the meantime, this cat is everywhere! At one point it is riding on my dash just to the right of me. In my hand I held a cap of Justin's and swatted at it when it would come towards me. All I could picture was this cat jumping on me in desperation. So I am leaning away from it and hitting at it with this cap. The next thing I know..... it is pooping on my dash. No not one little turd...... FOUR~

At this point I just start giggling and looking around for a hidden camera thinking surely this is being filmed. As I turn onto our road the poop starts rolling around my dash! It was DISGUSTING!

As soon as I pull up to our house, I roll down the window and that cat dashed out of there in a split second!

My tip to you.... don't EVER drive your car with a wild cat loose in it. I can't believe I did that!

I hurriedly ran inside and got some Clorox wipes and cleaned up the poo and headed back to school. With all the drama, I didn't get to eat! At about 10:00 last night I went out and rolled up my windows and locked my doors. Apparently the cat was in there and I wasn't aware of it. The craziest thing is.... Brayden and I drove all the way to school this morning and never knew it was in there.

I am happy to say the cat is fine and seems to have made it through the ordeal. I can't imagine how scared he must have been. Now..... does anyone have any ideas on how to get the smell out of my car????? I know the second picture is a little TMI, but it is for the effect. I had taken the pictures and was sending them to the teacher that was watching my class so that she would know I was not making this up~

I am sorry Misti, but this one just cracked me up.............poor cat! Thank goodness it wasn't hot outside!
I am assuming the cat peed in your vehicle? Try a pet store or groomer for some neutralizing spray or wash.......good luck!
