The mailman came and delivered a few packages..left them in the door with the door CRACKED!!!Andrew was sleeping and I was reading. I usually hear the dogs barking at any sign that somebody approaches the door. I guess they were asleep too.
I had no clue all the time Frosty was out ...and that scares me. Everybody is very careful and we've never had accidents. He doesn't even try to get out - not till today.
My brother-in-law looked out and saw a white cat with a red collar + I.D. and Rabies shot Tag and thought to himslef they (me and Andrew) must have put some on Frosty's wild littermates when they took them in to be altered...but wait they are too wild to be handled, they stay in cages through the whole process
That was when he realized it was our own dear Frosty. He told Andrew who went out right away, called him from the bushes where he was hiding. Upon being called Frosty approached and lowered very close to the ground as if he knew he wasn't supposed to be there. To Andrew's relief he stayed put until he could reach him and bring him safely into the house.
I was so scared when Andrew came to tell me - I had no clue all this time that Frosty was out, that he was in danger. I feel bad how confident I was that he couldn't get out. I usually shoo (make a loud noise) them from the door and they (both Frosty and Cheerio) run away when somebody opens the door.
I have already written a note to the delivery person and also asked him to walk to the house so I can talk to him. They need to have rules for such things. I cannot even imagine what he was thinking...what if Cheerio got out - she is not spayed and is now in heat + and she acts scared and untouchable if she is in a place that she is not familiar with.
I am so so happy that Frosty wore collar since he was a few weeks old - it paid off TODAY!
