Great Goofs: Cat'll Call

Curiosity got this DIYer's cat into a tricky spot.

Cat'll Call

After living in our old house for years, we decided to go all out and remodel the bathroom. Our dream was to install a Jacuzzi tub witha beautiful tile surround. After all the backbreaking work, we finally got to the fun part - setting the tile. We did a flawless job! Later that evening, we realized our cat was missing. After looking everywhere, we heard a distinct meow coming from the bathroom. Realizing that the sound was coming from the new tub surround, we carefully cut through the tile and cement board and found our cat alive and well. We made the best of a bad situation - our rescue hole became a maintenance access panel that we probably should have installed in the first place. - Matthew Robichaud
