Today I got home from work. Zoe greeted me. Cloris was nowhere to be found. I called her many times. I tore apart my home looking for her. I walked toward the phone, intending to call the desk attendant on first floor of my condo complex to ask if a cat had been found wandering around .... just before I touched the phone, Cloris came up behind me. I don't know where she hid. She must have shrunk herself into 1/3 of her size and found some teeny little place to hide. She scared the crap outta me. Now I have to put my home back together ... sigh .....

Cats are magic.

Reminds me of visiting a friend who lived in Grand Forks (before the flood and fire). He said he had two very shy indoor cats but during my two day stay, I encountered not a hint of cat. . . . I'm sure my friend was not hiding his cats but there were nowhere to be found.


I scolded Cloris and she sat there smirking and purring. This happened to me years back - I was taking care of two cats for a friend. The two hid. I searched everywhere. I called the caretaker to ask if the maintenance crew had been in my apt. She said no. I sat down, my head in my hands. Then I looked up and lo and behold, there they were. I could swear that cats can shrink into a tiny ball and hide someplace the humans believe they can't fit.

Glad she's ok!



They all seem to do that at times.


My Charlie is a master hider. He has learned to open cupboards and hide inside. Found him inside a bag of potatoes, inside a very full cupboard.

When my parents went out of town one day, they couldn't find one of their cats. I went over to look and I searched everywhere. I looked in every room and the basement at least three times. I decided I'd leave and come back. When I returned, I walked in the door and there she was sitting on the chair. I have no idea where she was and I was calling and calling her. I don't know where she was, but at least she was safe.


Cheshire cat trick... they love to pull that on humans.

I hate it when that happens. Glad you found her!
