Story 1: The air vents were open because the built in alarm for the house broke, and would not stop going off at random times of the day. (we couldn't even afford to actually have the alarm system activated, it was just kinda of there) So basically in a fit of frustration my brother opened the vents, found the alarm that was making noise, and ripped it out, but the vent didn't get closed properly.
My other brother's cat decided 'wow new place to explore' and went into the vent, falling down down the vents and getting stuck in the basement where the fan for the vents was. So it was stuck inside this big metal box, cry because it was scared, we couldn't figure out how to get the cat out.
We had to go out to some people that were working on building a new house on the block, and told them that our cat fell in the vents and we couldn't get him out, and they were kind enough to help us get him out by taking the thing he was stuck in apart, and then put it back together once he was out.
Story 2. It's about 2am, I'm still awake working on a project cause I have a deadline coming up. My cat (teenage-kitten at the time), was chasing moths in the room, it was hot and the window was open, but there was a screen so I didn't have to worry about him getting out. Or so I thought. The moth lands on the screen, so that cat leaps at it at full force and the screen goes flying out of the window frame and the cat goes out the window, landing on the roof, sliding down the roof, and then landing in the neighbours yard.
At 2 am.
Kitten is not hurt cause the screen softened his fall, but he is freaking the heck out pacing in circles and screaming at the top of his lungs. So I gotta go downstairs, leave the house and enter my neighbours yard to get my stupid ass cat, where I was then fukin blinded by the damn security lights cause... you know... someone was in their back yard at 2am. Grab my cat, get the fuk out of there because I don't wanna know how my old white neighbours who moved in only a few months ago are going to react to finding a brown person in their backyard at 2am. Had to do the rest of my work and go to sleep melting in my room because it was friggen hot and I had to close the window because I no longer had a screen, then the next day I had to go over and get my screen from the neighbours.
