So Princess Fiona (AKA, The Kitty) decided yesterday that she needed to get out for a little bit. Normally, we let her go in the (fenced) backyard, where she usually wanders about before finding a place in the shade to lay down and watch the birds, rabbits, and chipmunks wander about. But yesterday was a bit different. She got out of the yard, and we didn’t notice because I was inside taking care of Julia while Sharon was working on her garden.
We searched the back and inside, seeing no sign of the kitty. So I started driving around the neighborhood to try and find her. No luck. I ran into (not literally) some neighbors who had seen Fiona running from their dog and into a garage. So we went to the garage, but there was no sign of Fiona. We did find a paw print about 4 feet up on a window, but that was it. So we continued to search.
Over the course of searching, we found at least four cats roaming around and about ten rabbits just hanging out. I started to make for home to get back in a drive around again, when I went to get Julia’s car seat. Who was waiting at the back door? Well, Fiona, of course!
She was peering in, waiting for someone to let her in, acting like nothing had ever happened. Sharon and I are happy that Fiona is back all safe and sound, especially after hearing about her being chased by some dogs. But she’s done now. No more going outside for the kitty. She will strictly be an indoor cat now, no matter how much she begs to go out.
