Sophie scared me to death!!!! Anyone else have this happen?
Sophie scared me to death yesterday, I spent the night with a friend that needed some help, and came home to find her missing! I was terrified, she's 8 years old, has no front claws, and has never been outside before-and the doggy door had been left unlocked!!! She'd never left my bedroom before so I couldn't figure out where she had gone and feared the worst, especially after I spent 7 hours tearing the house apart, giving fliers to all the neighbors and seeing no sign of my princess!!! I talked a friend of mine into taking my dog for a couple of days so the dog wouldn't scare Sophie if she came into the back yard. I was just about ready to give up for the night and start again the next morning when I decided to try it one more time. I locked the other cats(my roomates have 2 cats also) in the basement and went upstairs to call her-nothing. I went back downstairs and let the other cats go up stairs and started calling her-To my suprise, she actually came!!! She had been in the house the whole time, something must have spooked her and she had hidden good! Once the dog was gone for a while, she had nothing to be afraid of and came out of hiding! That was at 11:20 last night, by that point it had been over 24 hours since I had last seen her-you can imagine my relief to find her safe and sound!!! She wouldn't let me out of her sight last night, she slept as close to me as she could get, I was so happy to have my princess safe and sound!!!!! Anyone else ever have this happen?
