Muffins got locked in the coat closet!

Last night my husband and I were out for a couple hours. We came home and Macy comes down to greet us, but where's Muffins? We opened the closet door to hang up our coats, and Muffins comes flying out! I felt terrible! I tried to console her but she kept running away from me. Finally I got a hold of her and loved her up, kissed her, hugged her, pet her, and told her how sorry I was and how much I loved her! She got over it real quick, but I just felt so bad. The closet she was in was this small dark closet with all these shoes piled in there so there was no place for her to lay and be comfortable.

My husband and I have locked her in closets before but we always hear her right away because she scratches the door. Man, this kitty is just so sneaky and nosy! She loves those open doors and can never resist them! lol

It happens to everyone.

Although, in my case Thomas locks himself in rooms. Twice I have come home to find him locked in the bathroom. And in the bedroom on another day. He just gets to playing and accidentally pushes the door shut. Oops.

Yeah, I've done that, too. Don't feel bad. Just try to get into the habit of double-checking before closing the door. Closets have an irrestistable attraction for cats for some reason.

Willie and Poopsie have done that to me! I cannot find them and when I open my bedroom closet, out they come! It is kinda funny because they have done it many times even after being locked in all day!

One day, Willie was unable to get to the litterbox in time and he soiled a few shirts I had on the floor. No big deal. That is what washing machines are for here. I just cleaned it up and all was well. I told Willie not to be sad or sorry because it was not his fault nature called.

Everyones right, it's happened to all of us one time or another. What we do at my house is before we go anywhere we do a "cat check", the kids and I look for our four cats and make sure everyone is out and about. We also do a cat check when we get home, just in case!

My cat got locked in the bathroom once time & was frantically meowing & scratching to get out. Thank goodness my parents opened the door for her.

I can't believe this doesn't happen more often. Velvet is constantly racing in the bedroom closet in the morning. I always have to remember to check for her before I close the door. She is lucky she hasn't ever spent the day locked in the closet.

Well, that makes me feel better that it can happen to the best of us!
