    Works with the cat.
    (It doesn't but the cat knows it hasn't figured the tin opener yet so your life will be spared for now)

    That would probably traumatise the sheep so it would just jump rather than share its ledge with a nutter.
    Problem solved.
    Helium, because I'm worth it.
    Waterboarding at Guantanamo Bay sounded like a radical holiday opportunity until I looked it up.

    Been on a few shore dives under the cliffs along N.Wales where there were sheep remains(bones) on the bottom.
    The tied bag of bones was a dog.

    Cats just entertain themselves by watching their humans risk life and dismemberment in an effort to "save" them.

    Used to have a cat that thought every tin being opened contained tuna. Maybe used to eat too many tuna sandwiches?

    I'm more interested in how the RSPCA coaxed her down... Bottle of prosecco? Pork scratchings?

    I had a cat that went mad for smoked salmon, I used to buy the packs of trimmings from the supermarket for pasta.
    Open a pack, and the cat was climbing the cupboard doors.

    Our dog loves pilchards in tomato sauce and the rind off Blue Stilton.
