Where am I?

Mad dogs and roof cats

When searching for a missing cat, try looking up. I wandered around for about 15 minutes, sure that I could hear Evangelina, but unable to decide which garage she was trapped inside of.

My theory is that she chased a squirrel up the birch tree on the left, but wasn't brave enough to take the same route down. She probably spent three days and two nights up there, and wouldn't come down for food or water. But when the ladder got too close, she jumped off the other side of the roof.

Moral of the story: this cat can survive a 17-ft fall into a bush. She might have scratched her leg, or maybe that was a pre-existing condition. She definitely acquired a sunburn, and she has a growing collection of freckles.
