Fuck! Fuck! Fuckity fuck!

Caroline's just called. She's gone and lost me my cat.

She went out and the cat must have slipped out with her. When she came back and saw there was only the one cat in the flat, she went right out again and got some kitty snacks. The way she tells it she's been prowling through people's front gardens, shaking her kitty snack box and going "Pusspusspuss" for hours.

So we won't be going to the pictures tonight. We'll be stretched out on our bellies on the cold wet pavement looking under cars for Clio.

I'm hoping the weather turns right nasty, so that my adventureous one will allow herself to be caught and brought back into the nice, warm house...where she belongs.

Ouch! Good luck!
Dec. 17th, 2003 08:56 am (UTC)
Thanks! I'll find her, no worries. It's just -- I don't fancy being out in the cold all night, and I just know she's gonna make me work for what I want (which is her back indoors).

is clio an indoor only kitty? if so, she's probably right by your flat. if there's anything i've learned from gil the houdini-cat, it's that indoor only kitties never go more than 100 feet from their normal indoor environs (i had to get people from the ASPCA cattery and the siamese rescue to tell me that before i'd believe it). put kitty food out on your stoop or doorstep, & observe carefully. if you have access to a back garden, even better. "varmit traps" are wonderful things as well, if clio's resistant to kitty wrangling.

Yes, luckily, Clio is an indoor kitty only. She's escaped once before (I say escaped, but she actually fell down from the balcony) and stayed out for 3 long days and nights. And in the end, I found her sitting under the bushes next to the apartment block's main entrance.

I'm sure she'll be back soon. But what with Leila succombing to struvite stones again, and her disappearing act, my kitties aren't half causing me worry today!

Oh no ... hope you find Clio soon.
Dec. 17th, 2003 08:58 am (UTC)
Thank you. I'm sure I will. If for no other reason than that it's cold, and wet, and windy...and ultimately, my cats know which side their bread is buttered! ;-)
Dec. 17th, 2003 08:55 am (UTC)
Yikes! Let us know. I'm be lost with my baby.
Dec. 17th, 2003 08:59 am (UTC)
Don't worry, I'll keep you posted. No way will I allow a cat of mine to ever get away from me ;-).
Dec. 17th, 2003 08:59 am (UTC)
My cat got out once and freaked me out. I called and called and no kitty all day. Then, poof! There she suddenly was at the door like nothing had happened at all. Your kitty's probably close by and hiding and will slink home soon enough.
Dec. 19th, 2003 01:14 am (UTC)
And that's exactly what happened: she wouldn't be found while we were out looking for her, but when she'd had enough of freedom for one day, she turned up on the doorstep looking for all the world as if she did this sort of thing all the time!
Dec. 17th, 2003 10:02 am (UTC)
She's probably curled up with some old biddy, right now.
Dec. 19th, 2003 01:07 am (UTC)
Thank God she wasn't. I would have had to kill the old biddy.
Dec. 17th, 2003 10:57 am (UTC)
Keeping my fingers crossed for you both.

My dratted felines always used to pull this crap on me until they got too old to care. Hah. Now they stay within ten feet of the house, usually.

I used to have panicky anxiety and spend hours looking for them whenever this happened. (ALL the time -- my family was always letting them slip outside). I know exactly what it's like.

Hopefully Clio shows up soon, all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.
Dec. 19th, 2003 01:09 am (UTC)
Yes, she did...at 4:30 in the morning, and under her own steam! Clever little kitty ;-).

She's back home safely, I'm glad to report; and she found her way back to me all on her own, too!
Dec. 17th, 2003 04:50 pm (UTC)
Oh, no! I thought she was just pulling a hiding act because your guest was strange to her. Hope she turns up soon, safe and sound. I'll say a little prayer for both your kitties tonight. I know how much they mean to you.

I thought she was just pulling a hiding act because your guest was strange to her.

Tha's what I thought as well, until I came home and had to admit that she wasn'ty in any of her usual hiding places. She wouldn't be found when we went out that night, but later, in the early morning, she came back home of her own accord.

This morning she was lying so contentedly in her usual place on top of the wardrobe, you'd hardly believe she'd ever pull Houdini on anyone.
Dec. 19th, 2003 02:05 am (UTC)
Oh, thank God! (I said a prayer for both your kitties last night.) You must be so relieved! Whew!

Now, how's Leila?
Dec. 19th, 2003 02:22 am (UTC)
Leila's feeling very hard done by at the moment. Her human's turned against her, making her swallow nasty little tablets and refusing to give her something nice to eat, despite the fact that she's made her wishes very clear by not touching the stuff that's in her bowl and adding a few scratches on said human's skin to make the message sink in. She doesn't understand what she's done wrong, and has decided it's all the stupid human's fault, anyway.

I sympathize! Kids and pets -- they don't know it's for their own good. Well, I know you're a good cat-mama!
