Enter height-terrified Loz - climbing tree as she is the tallest member of the family without bad back, reaching with broom attached to bo stick attempting to shove cat off branch so it can be extracted.
Enter car - driving by, seeing Loz in all her pyjama'd tree-climbing glory.
Cat still up tree. Family perplexed. Loz sitting typing this for her LJ, attempting to hatch new plan.
