View Full Version : My turn to ask for fingers crossed

04-18-2009, 02:15 AM
My mother has just informed me that the boycat got outside.

It seems Stripes got out this afternoon without daddy noticing.. when I came home from my lunch around 4:30 he was no where around... we looked all over the house and outside but no sign of him... we went out to dinner and no sign of him when we got home at 9:00. Even Stars is acting like she's worried that he's gone.

These are not outdoor cats. They have never been out on their own. (Stars wouldn't go out if you paid her, anyway. She's afraid of...well, everything.) The few times he's managed to get out the door he hasn't gotten far (like, halfway to the driveway). There are strays in the neighborhood who would kick his ass (they also don't have front claws).

Hopefully he will have a little adventure, come back by the morning and realize that inside is much better and stop trying to get out. So fingers crossed, please.

Fingers crossed.

Hope it all works out.

Part of me is wondering if he just found a new, obscure hiding place in the house. Last time we were all but convinced he got out I found him in the spare linens closet, where he'd presumably been happily snoozing on a pillow.

Hopefully, he will realize this (http://icanhascheezburger.com/2009/04/17/funny-pictures-let-me-back-in/).

HE'S HOME!!! Yay! Email from Daddy this morning:


Stripes is home. I got up about 1:30 and he was sitting on the porch with
a new friend. One of the small mostly black cats of the area. When I opened
the front door they both took off and disappeared. I opened the garage door
a foot just in case. When I got up at 5:12, I opened the door to the garage
and a blur came in. No sign of his friend. He went right to the food bowl
and chowed down.

Will have to keep him out of the bedroom until he is checked for fleas and


I hope he's learned his lesson!

Hurray!!! I only had my fingers crossed for a second since I was late to the thread, but I'm glad he's back! :)

I wonder if his little friend is the same cat that he was running frantically between kitchen window and living room window to watch in the backyard a few weeks ago...
