Fat Cat in Narrow-Necked Jar

More than 40 years ago, EJ and siblings wondered whether their fat cat, whom to their eyes had a silhouette of a miniature elephant, could go inside mom's narrow-necked ceramic jar or get stuck trying to get in. The very thought of how hilarious it would look with its fat rump sticking up and legs kicking in the air gave them courage to try out. 

First, they made sure mom went out. Then they took that narrow-necked ceramic jar and placed it in the middle of the hall. 

Yeow-Yeow, yes, that was the fatty's name, resisted when they tried to put his head in the jar opening. EJ and siblings laughed at the comic sight.

When put down on the floor briefly, fatty got fascinated and started peering in. They tried again and fatty went in after some leg kicking in the air.

Peering inside the jar, fatty could not be seen. It was dark inside. Colour of that jar (which was almost similar to the one below) did not help as it was deep brown almost black both outside and inside.

Fatty stayed in for so long and was so quiet that EJ and siblings panicked. They thought they had to rescue him by breaking Mom's jar. 

Luckily fatty got bored squatting in the dark and popped out. Can you imagine how relieved EJ and siblings were. That jar was quickly put back in its place before mom came home.

EJ thinks fatty is number 3 here. Cat on the floor was fatty's mother, Meowmy.

All's well that ends well. So pleased there was not.
One broken jar.
One angry mother.
One very annoyed cat.
A group of sorry children.
I like the happy ending.

This is nether here nor there but our Walker modern art museum is having a cat film festival on their lawn this Thursday. A compilation of internet videos and such. I'm sure there will be plenty of cats stuck in small places. I can't wait!

Looks like if Fatty could get in, he could also get out.....but some tense moments while he was deliberating!

I'm glad everything ended well. I probably would have went into a panic and broke the jar immediately!
