So what does this tell you? Probably a lot of things :>) but the most apparent could be that our house listing is “going live” on Friday!
Poor Miss Sophie. She isn’t normally a very social cat unless you happen to be in the house for an entire evening or as an overnight guest at which point she might make a brief appearance depending on the sound of your voice or whether you are a repeat visitor. Otherwise, the master bedroom closet is her “safe room”. That closet has a pocket door which we always leave slightly open so she can escape at a moment’s notice! She even likes to spend time in there when there aren’t visitors. In the summer it’s cool and out of the sunlight, and in the winter, under Mr. Squash’s shirts it’s cozy and warm. Or when she’s in a playful mood she likes to play hide and seek in there!
So yesterday I made the sign to warn potential buyers to not lock her in there for the day! Have you ever had a cat jump into a closet unbeknownst to you and reside there until you got home from work and wondered why the cat didn’t show up for dinner? I have! Years ago my cat jumped into a linen closet shelf while I was making the bed one morning. I came home from work and couldn’t find him anywhere. Finally I heard a faint mewing sound coming from the closet - opened the door - out jumped the cat followed by a very strong odor!! Now that took a few days to clean up, not to mention the trauma to the cat!
So my only real fear in this whole process is the well-being of Miss Sophie!! Care to share any tales of your cats spending the day locked up?
