Just back from seeing Uncle Nemesis, Andi, Fred, and the new cat.

I saw Unx's safe seemingly dumped in the garden and asked if he was chucking it out. "Yes it won't open" was Unx's reply. It seems one of the cats had pissed on the lock and jammed it. Always up for a challenge I set to with blow torch, pliers, and WD40... ignoring Unx's "I tried all that".

10 minutes later... "SPRONG!"

Of course safe cracking is dead easy when you have the combination and the key.

Came back with Andi as she needs a respectable UK citizen to sign some stuff for her... I guess there are no respectable citizen available so I am doing the signing.

Well.... if you know any banks that have had their safe locks jammed with cat pee... and they have the key and combination... I'm your man.

The trick is to heat the key up in the lock and let it cool. The expansion and contraction frees it.

Yes it's Raoul.

Here he is from about 3 months ago when he was a bit more timid.

Now he's more used to Unx and Andi. This means they can get him to come in to the house and pick him up... He's off to the vet next week to get that eye checked out.
