The drivers they scratched their heads and they muttered
To each other, just what could they do now?
They just knew that t’was essential to keep the door shuttered
To keep their small passenger safe and secure somehow.
In Te Kuiti the truck came to a stop suddenly,
It was here their replacements would meet them.
The SPCA with its VET lovingly
Was already standing there to greet them.
They had a cage for to carry our Leo to safety.
The trick was to open the door and to pluck him
From the confines of the truck and they were sure that he’d be
In a panic! They had to grab him by his forelimbs.
Cautiously they all gathered at the back by the door
Listening carefully to all sounds coming from inside.
Leo in the meantime was laid out on the floor.
He was definitely not at all terrified.
The door they inched up on its chains carefully
Expecting to find Leo quite traumatised.
But to their dismay, their attitude cheerfully!
No sign of dear Leo. But a site quite disorganised.
“Leo,” they called with their cage carefully staged
By the door so he couldn’t escape them.
The last thing they needed was a cat quite enraged
Who could create a lot more frenzied mayhem.
The drivers and VET were puzzled somewhat
When no answer or cat could they locate.
The drivers jumped up and were soon quite dumbstruck
When by the small box of tea there was their mate.
The 3 of them laughed when they realised what had happened
That Leo was full of his catnip.
Therefore getting him into the cage was so easy, unimagined
Settling down on the mattress quite automatic.
Sergeant Todd had enquired and found that a car
Being despatched back to New Plymouth was a day away,
So Leo was put up by Smith’s daughter who thought it all bizarre.
This adventure of Leo was happening on her birthday!
