Percy the Persian Blue and the sinking sand

Our 2 year old Persian Blue is a fussy fellow. Percy has always had hissy tantrums when faced with baths, grooming, food and vets visits but he's a beautiful, proud cat with bundles of character. He's a tentative mouser too but the one thing he cannot resist is chasing birds.

We have a sand pit in our back garden, which has a cover to keep it safe from Percy and other cat's messages. It attracts insects and in turn birds which only makes it more interesting for Percy.

Anyway it's been very stormy here recently and percy has been reluctant to go outside, he gazes out of the window and look at me all sad eyed and bored that there's nothing to chase and no kingdom to survey as it's covered in water- something Percy avoids at all costs!

I put Percy out the back door, early, one morning, after a very rainy night where thunder had made it impossible to sleep. Having got overtired I completely forgot about him until I sat down with a cup of tea mid-morning in the conservatory. I noticed the cover of the sandpit cover had been blown off and was lying against our garden fence. I ran into the garden to right the cover, only to find Percy, neck-deep in quicksand, there were a few feathers half sunk in the sand. Percy was very upset, he mewed loudly and gave me an expression so infuriated and was very grateful to be scooped out of his quicksand nightmare. The storm had been so powerful it whipped off the sand pit cover, and most of the sand, then pouring rain had made what was left into some very dangerous quicksand! I imagine a bird must have been flitting around on one side and Percy must have pounced in and become stuck!

Percy is no longer so keen to chase birds and respects the sandpit at a safe distance and he got a lovely thorough bath and grooming, which he reluctantly endured. Now he's back to being a pretty kitty having learnt his lesson.
