Meet Kitten our house guest for the next week, he is my daughters cat and I'm taking care of him while she is off camping with a friend. He's just over a year old and very curious and LOTS of energy. Yesterday morning I woke up early and went looking for the cat. On a side note, Lula has no problems with him, she just wants to make friends but Kitten is being a snob. So anyway......back to my little story, I get up and CAN'T find the cat, I looked everywhere AND....... under everything, where could he be???. Then I noticed a few things knocked down in the laundry room. Okay....the cat must be behind the washing machine, I look back there and NO cat.....but WAIT, what is THAT?? a "hole in the wall", where did that HOLE come from??? I've never seen that before. Then I see it.... the unthinkable, "eyes" staring back at me.....WHAT!!! the cat is in the WALL of my house! How did he get in there???? and most important, how LONG has he been in the wall AND how do I get him out????, now I'm getting panicked, how could this happen??? I start trying to pull out the washing machine....I look again....OH NO.....where IS the CAT, I don't see him anymore, he's gone in behind the wall. All kinds of unthinkable things are going through my head, I've lost my daughters cat and will he be stuck in there for.......well.....I won't say it. I ran upstairs and woke up DH in a panic, "Kitten is in the wall of the house!". DH comes to take a look and says "what's the big deal, he'll come out eventually...... EVENTUALLY!!! I want him out NOW!!!. The cat continues to come and forth looking at us and then disappears, each time he disappears I'm thinking "how far can he go and will he NOT come back". It took a while and a little tearing of the lino on the floor and DH gets behind the machine and quickly grabbed Kitten, he wasn't too happy about being dragged out. Very quickly that hole is covered up with a board and LONG nails, there was a little crack open and I said "stuff this towel in the crack", DH thought I was crazy, it just made me feel better to have it all sealed up. So that was the second day of having this cat.....the first day was a minor incident with water on the floor around the toilet and then this morning I woke up to find my back door curtains and rod on the floor....what's next????
