Lilo and Stitch
Lilo (pronounced LEE-low) and Stitch, were missing. She noticed that a screen had been pushed out of a window, so she guessed they must have both escaped. After searching, she found Lilo up high in a tree in her back yard, but she could not find Stitch. She tried all the usual tips for luring Lilo down from the tree and called all the usual people to get him down, but nothing worked. Her pleas, however, did get the attention of someone who told her to call me, so I drove over there the next morning after Lilo's second night in the tree.
When I climbed up to Lilo, I had trouble getting him to trust me. I was hoping he would readily come straight to me, but he was a bit scared. When the usual charm did not work, I resorted to opening a can of food, and that did the trick. He came to me right away and let me pet him. I held the open carrier up to him, showed him the food, shoved the food into the back of the carrier, and watched as he stepped into the carrier with no trouble at all. No trouble, that is, except for getting his tail inside so I could close the door.
Lilo and Stitch were safely back inside their home now, and Chantell was very relieved. Later that day, she sent this picture of the two of them catching up on sleep after their two-day adventure.
