I work as a lifeguard, and over the summer, I work between three different outdoor pools.
One day when I got to work, my boss informed me that there was a kitten stuck in a vending machine in the men’s bathroom. Being the crazy cat lover that I am, all I heard was that I was going to go home with a cat.
When I tell this story most people think he was stuck in the front part of the vending machine, but in actuality, he was in the back bottom part, which was close to a wall. I soon realized that I couldn’t reach him due to the positioning of the vending machine, but a pool goer helped me to move the vending machine, I wrapped my arm in a towel and pulled him out.
He ended up being incredibly friendly and instantly started purring after his rescue. I called my mom and told her that I was bringing (another) cat home (she was not happy), and he got to hang out with a group of lifeguards for a few hours before coming home with me. Quite a few children at the pool wanted to take him home, too.
It has been a year now, and Tyrion acts like he’s been part of the family forever. Our eldest cat couldn’t care less about him, but the middle cat and our dog are best friends with Tyrion, who loves to play with toys, sleep in the sun and sit in your lap (or in the sink).
