Mia our cat recently did the disappearing act (part of the Raven-ous cast). She was gone a couple of days…leaving us worried & quite helpless. I mean where does one start searching for a cat?
Being fairly new to the cat-world I looked up Dr.Google & was relieved to know that this is regular cat behaviour & they will find their way back home…eventually.
Well she didn’t exactly come back on her own…but was lost in the neighbourhood. We were informed by someone who saw her.
She was fortunately found…with a lot of drama – including someone being sent with a bag with the hope she would cooperate & jump right in! No luck. Finally found in the 3rd attempt & the errant cat was brought back home…by the scruff of the neck.
She received a warm welcome by the inhabitants of the household.
What I’m trying to figure out is what is it that makes these creatures so damn curious. The stray dogs are constantly on the lookout for her…why can’t she get the message & stay safe. Also, I’ve never known of a dog wanting to climb a desk & go for a casual stroll on the laptop!
Having a cat for the first time I am discovering that it’s a totally fun experience. It’s drama of some form all the time…
