Mom decided to give Lassie & Benji's idea a try - she hunted through the cupboards until she found the electric kettle and boiled up some water.
Now comes the good part - bbbbaawwwhh picture this - mom half in and half out our doggie door... pouring hot water on the ice. (Dog oh Dog I wish I had thumbs so I could of held the flashy beast and took pictures of HER!) It took 4 kettle full of hot water but finally she was able to get the door open about 7" and escape.
YEAH my fellow furbies - Mom was getting THAT stir crazy!!! So for the first time in days she was able to squeeze herself outside - she was so happy she did a little dance on the ice on the deck.
We even managed to fill up the bird feeders - though why she insists on feeding those bird brains is beyond me! Really - we don't know what all the fuss is about - we have been able to go in and out with no problems. The other good news is we have clear blue skies and 53 today and it is supposed to be in the high 60's over the weekend and 73 on Tuesday - woo hoo! Maybe the ice will melt enough for Mom to be able to get MY car out of the garage and take ME to the park!
