We have a game the cats play with me at night. We have a large screen room that we had built when Abby was a kitten. It's all screened in under the carport. We wanted her to be able to watch birds and be safe.
Well at night when they see me go out to clean their litter, they go outside. I close the door, wait a minute or 2 and then open the door. They shoot in and are happy.
Last night I didn't see her go out and could have sworn she was in the house. I slept really soundly which is not the norm for me.
Got up to make them breakfast and no Abby. Opened the door and she shot in yelling at me as only she can. She didn't eat her wet food that I put out...she was too upset. She had no where to go potty all night, so she held that, as well. Fortunately it is plenty warm out at night so that part was ok.
She just ate a bit of dry food and then threw it all up. She is so stressed, poor thing. I'll feed her wet again at lunch and see if she eats it then.
Gizmo didn't alert me that anything was wrong, but because I slept so well, I may not have noticed. Just give me the bad mom award!!
It just started raining, thankfully that didn't happen during the night because she's afraid of thunder and heavy rain.
