Yeah, and like most predators, they're way faster than you would ever expect them to be. You do the math and you'd think, "Ok, attach a 10 inch set of tiny arms to what amounts to a 300 pound hot dog and how fast could it possibly run, right?"

It turns out the math is deceiving and the answer is actually SUPER DAMN FAST!!!!

I forgot to add, it may not be filled to the proper level and may need a bit of a top off.

Omg..i was. Just out that way yesterday.

Coincidentally my cat Goofball somehow.got.out of the truck.witbout me.noticing. in all the time on the truck he has never even attempted to get out. I went to sleep and woke several hours later to feed him. No cat...but he likes to hide. After a few minutes I panicked and called him outside the truck in desperation Then I heard him. Somehow he got out then climbed on the fuel tank. He had to have been there in the rainy cold night for at least five to six hours.

Lucky for him we were in Schenectady not AL lol. He's also very lucky to have climbed onto my truck and not someone else's.

Poor kitty. I laugh about it but I was terrified. Can t imagine having to fight a gator for.the cat lol
