Academy for Pet, specialize in how to escape any kind of cage. Register Now!

So, today my mom and me got this idea about some sort of secret “academy” among animals in my house. We always have quite clever and creative pets (and those who treat themselves as pet, like the mouse), especially in the escape-from-cage-move. It started with a super turtle who actually remind me of Ugway in KungFu Panda. We made a small house for the turtle (we didn’t give it a name) which contain a small pond, some area with small nice rocks all over, and beautiful natural bamboo fence around it. His house was placed in our backyard, which has 3 big ponds and garden. So basically the atmosphere was quite nice and natural. However, the turtle always escape from his house to do a long and slow journey to our kitchen. In the way, he had to go through our library, garden, ponds, and garage. Mind you, it was a dangerous trip. He had to CLIMB because the fence had no door (he was quite skilled in this area). Then the danger of being not seen and ran over by our cars which often went out and into the garage (lucky that he had a hard shell). After he arrived in front of our kitchen, he also had to go down several steeps of a short stair (a turtle go down stair?? I mean, even the leg was not that long & he had to slide down using his shell…) then hid below the table. Sometimes he also went to the real stair to our second floor and climbed it up! He never succeeded though, we always find him in the middle of it. We never really know why he insist to go to our kitchen since he has plenty of proper food in his house too. We already change the fence with palisade and brick and it still didn’t work. Anyway, the sad thing is, in the end he died because his head was trapped between the palisades in his last effort to escape and we didn’t find out about it until it was too late (we were not in the house at that time). We felt really sad when that happened and we actually made a grave for him.

However he really didn’t leave this world in vain. We suspect he established an academy in his life with a master bible about how to escape from various kind of cage. His oldest apprentices is the mouse clan. The mouse in our house is surprisingly clever. They can escape almost all traps we set, with the food bait gone somewhere. They also managed to snatch a lot of things which we put in place we never though a mouse can get! Like inside a locker and under a food lid. Duh, the can even move the cabinet door open! This is, we believe has become their secret move of heredity…

The youngest apprentice is apparently our formerly stupid and naive dog. His name is Necklace because he has a white circle around his neck. We got him along with his 2 other siblings (one female and one male) from a friend. But after a while we decide to only keep him because he has the scariest face and maybe it will be useful to scare some people who has ill-intentions. Thus we gave back the other dogs to their former owner. Necklace turn out to be a quite nice dog. Inspite of the lack training, he always has his toilet, which is our backyard. He also eat in his place and does not leave the place that messy. He never go into our house, except when it is rain outside. He is also not that picky toward food, he sometimes even eat fruit and vegetables. The loud bark also quite useful in several occasions. However, he also a dog which suit with the quote “speak lauder than the action”. In short, he is a coward dog. He barks loud but afraid to mouse and retreat if someone strange try to touch him. He chase wild cats, but only to ask them play (he always end up lost).

This is not really a problem to us. But sometimes Necklace has his own crazy time. He suddenly attack people, including my brother (who usually play with him). It usually happens near the vaccine time. And after he get injection, Necklace go back to his normal self. However, last time he suddenly attack my brother again without any reason and even managed to bleed (a little) his chest. Even though after that he act normal and doesn’t attack anyone, my father decided to cage him in the backyard. The problem is, apparently Necklace already in the possession of how-to-escape-any-cage bible. No matter what my father do to the backyard, Necklace always manage to escape. Until my father tired and let abandoned the idea in the end. I guess it just our fate to have this kind of live with clever pet. So maybe we can formally open the academy and accept any animal who want to register. It surely has a potential as a good business. Hahaha…
