Under the 2x8 boards holding up the deck of my back porch at its perimeter, there are cinder blocks coming up from the sidewalk. I put them in originally to make it just about impossible for a burglar to get under my back porch and to use that route to get into my basement.

Unfortunately, it never occurred to me that a cat would be able to get in there and not be able to get out. Hence, I am extremely glad that Casey apparently heard his cat Sylvia under the porch. I was away at the time, but my wife Janet let him in to retrieve Sylvia.


The reason I mention all this is that there is a lesson here. Henceforth, if there is a report of a missing cat nearby, I will check under my back porch, and anyone with a similar back porch should do likewise. I shudder to think of what might have happened if Casey had not heard Sylvia.

        friendly and will probably come right up to anyone with food
        or their hand out to pet her.  Please let us know if you see
