I reported the other day on Achilles, the cat trapped in the ceiling of a Colorado airport. I’m pleased to add that he’s finally been freed. According to The Broomfield Enterprise:
Employees at the Denver Air Center, a ground services provider for private pilots at the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport in Broomfield, are reporting today that Achilles, the young Bengal cat that this week spent more than a day and half stuck in the business’s ceiling, has been safely coaxed out of hiding.
The feline, who according to his owner spent his third birthday Tuesday trapped in a suspended ceiling between the building’s first and second floors, was lured down from the space by Denver Air Center staff around 6:15 a.m.
Denver Air Customer Service Representative Luann Ezeonu, who did not work on Tuesday, said she came to work at about 5:30 a.m. today and immediately asked what was making the strange noises emanating from the ceiling. Forty-five minutes later Achilles was being herded into a cat carrier, safe and sound and ready to be returned to his owner.”
He’s a lovely Bengal; here’s his photo:
Of course this means that he wasn’t really Ceiling Cat after all, but Happy Cat, an incarnation of Ceiling Cat who took feline form and returned to Urf.
