Cat Survives Being Walled Up Underneath Bathroom For 7 Weeks

Cat Survives Being Walled Up Underneath Bathroom For 7 Weeks

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A four-year-old cat in Germany called Bonny has survived after being walled in beneath a bathtub for seven weeks, its owner said Tuesday.

`It`s a miracle,` said Monika Hoppert, a 60-year-old widow from the western town of Stadthagen. `I`m a strong believer, I think she must have had a guardian angel. I`m so happy.`"


I`m very happy for Monika, I have two cats, and I know how much the unexpected return of her kitty means to her. But it makes me chuckle when believers see the hand of God everywhere. The concept of guardian angels is difficult to swallow, but guardian angels for cats? Gimme a break!

Guardian Angel Joey: God just promoted me, I`ve been assigned to be Barack Obama`s guardian angel

Guardian Angel Howie: Congratulations! It`s good you aren`t watching over John McCain, that`s bound to be a short gig.

Joey: By the way who are you protecting these days?

Howie: Bonnie

Joey: Bonnie Miller, the CEO of that giant silicon corporation?

Howie, No, Bonnie, the freakin` cat

Joey: Dude, Whatcha do to upset the Old Man? A cat`s got nine lives for heaven`s sake, what does he need one of us for?

According to the Reuters article Bonnie dropped from 13 pounds to 4 pounds, but all of you animal lovers will be glad to hear that she`s almost back to normal.
