 Now Moet is a rescue cat, inherited from my son, Tom. She arrived at his house, hid under the bed, then promptly escaped and went on the run for 9 months. Meanwhile, Tom moved back in with us. So it was a bit of a surprise when we received a call from the SPCA saying she had been found (the wonders of microchipping). We picked her up, brought her back to ours - where she'd promptly escaped again (we were considering renaming her '​Houdini'​). So she's spent the last year living under the house. As you can imagine, she's a very nervous little cat. I'd just managed to gain her confidence enough to let me brush her. Now Moet is a rescue cat, inherited from my son, Tom.

-Now we had to catch her. We set a plan. Moet had started coming into the house when I went to feed her - but didn't like the door shut. I'd entice her in, shut the door, then pick her up and shove her in a cat box that Art was holding hidden in the hallway. I still have the scars. But eventually (with the help of a large towel) we managed it.+Now we had to catch her. We set a plan. Moet had started coming into the house when I went to feed her - but didn't like the door shut. I'd entice her in, shut the door, then pick her up and shove her in a cat box that Art was holding hidden in the hallway. Hm. So much for that plan. I still have the scars. But eventually (with the help of a large towel) we managed it.
  
 As it was very unlikely I'd ever get her in a box again, I took the opportunity to take her to the vet for a check-up and jabs. I warned the vet she was very nervous, and showed him my scars. He tipped her out, started checking her out, and the damned cat called me a liar by starting to purr at him! One thing I was pleased about - the vet commented on how healthy she is. The outdoor life must suit her.[{{:​living_in_new_zealand:​country_calendar:​moet_in_garage_website_.jpg|Moet,​ sitting on the wooden partition in the garage some days after the move}}] As it was very unlikely I'd ever get her in a box again, I took the opportunity to take her to the vet for a check-up and jabs.
