LOL!! That is so funny! But I totally get where you're coming from. I didn't leave Torri out alone with Jitzu until she was 5 months...she had to be able to run away. The boys were much younger. But Jitzu liked them better, or was at least used to having other kitties around and was better at ignoring them.
As far as hiding...Doran's the one that does it. Now I know his new fav spot I'm pretty ok. But usually they all come to see me in the morning when I get up. I greet each kitty. Well, one morning Doran didn't come (which is odd 'cause he's a HUGE momma's boy, and is always the first one to greet me, if he isn't lying right outside our door...) so I got worried. I called and called, ran all around the house. Finally I here this little 'mew', so he's calling back...but from where?!
I went back upstairs again, and called his name, another 'mew'. Then "MEW! MEW! Mew mew mew mew!" I opened the bathroom door and he pops out. I was very surprised since they aren't allowed in the bathroom...then I remembered my SOs friends were over, and that Doran will sneak in a hide by the laundry in the bathroom. He must have snuck in, and then got locked in when whoever it was left and shut the door. Poor boy.
On the positive side he hasn't snuck into the bathroom since, lol.
Usually if I can't find him I just call and he 'mews', then comes running. Like I said, a huge momma's boy. I did have to 'rescue' him from our storage room's high shelf before he had figured out how to get down. We have a split level, and our bedroom is on the top, the storage room is in the basement. I have no idea how long he was there crying, but I heard him as soon as I got to the main level. The funny thing is Muffin had been trying to show him how t do it. Going up, then back down. Up, and back down. So cute!
