Cats feel a little drained



A TALE of love, heartache and heroics was played out over the new year's period for devoted cat owners Jo-anne and Jasmine Grady.

When Agatha, a black and white female manx, went missing on December 29 Jo-anne said that she 'went into a big panic'.

Two days later another of the Gradys cats, Bunny, fell down a drain when he was searching for his feline friend.

Grafton firefighters' captain Greg McLennan and firefighter Campbell arrived, and crawled through 180 metres of underground pipes to rescue the cat.

Jo-anne said that 'all became well again' when the day after Bunny's return 'a skinny and ragged' looking Agatha turned up.

"She had walked through the drain all the way from one end of Bacon Sreet to another, feeding only on cockroaches and grass," she said.

"When Bunny saw her he licked her ears ... Agatha is one unsinkable cat, you can tell she likes listening to Killing Heidi."

Jasmine said that the two cats were still recovering.

"At the moment we are just feeding them chicken and loving them," she said.
