So do you remember at all how we mentioned the drier was broken at work? Well if you don't we'll mention it again. So long story short until it is fixed the hose from the drier has to go outside, therefore we need to open the door. The staff first put us in our cages at first because they didn't want us to get out, but have lately been putting a blanket in between the door so we can't get out. The food provider especially put the blanket as high as her neck and a broom in front too.
Well Tony decided to go hide behind/under the couch in the Dr's office. The food provider noticed he wasn't around but thought he may be in the office because the Dr was in there taking a nap. But when he got up the the food provider went in and checked the office but Tony was no where to be seen!!!! She started freaking out and the staff called him and searched every room high and low. He was no where. She was hoping beyond hope he didn't get out, but went out to look for him anyways. She put me (Simon) in a cage and opened the door in hopes of Tony to come back. After an hour or so Tony comes trotting out of th Dr's office. The food provider was so mad/frustrated, but I could tell she was relieved he was not gone. As you can tell she had one tough night. She said tony never sleeps in there and never stays in a hiding spot for so long, it was odd for him... anyways its okay now, but she still is getting over the stress.
Well we had a good night ;). The food provider washed all our bedding and our litter boxes all nicely. We now have a super clean cage to sleep in tomorrow.
The food provider asked the staff if we could have a scratching post, but they said no. So there is no chance that work will buy us a scratching post or anything at this point. They say it would make the clinic too crowded and will look messy. Maybe they'll change their mind some day...
The food provider is thinking of getting the turbo scratcher (thanks Zach for suggesting it!!) It is small and looks like a lot of fun. But like the other things she has bought for us she will only bring in when she is working and when not too many staff are around. But is wondering if it will be too loud for night time when the Dr is sleeping. We can play with it a little farther away but we don't know how loud it is... The food provider is such a dork she'd buy one anyways for her future cat, MOL.
Oh and we promised Blizzard we'd check the ferret's file to see how he'd ended up. Well according to our files (care calls to patients are done one day later) he's doing a lot better, still not 100% when we had called but much improvement from when he was in.
Finney we enjoyed your party. Even though we technically couldn't be there, the food provider was contently checking her phone for catster updates, MOL.
Simon and Tony

That's okay guys! You didn't miss much but come June, it's both me and Lacey's birfdays so we'll let everyone know ahead of time that there will be a pawty. Glad you're okay Tony!
I thought it was a great party myself.
The Turbo Scratcher isn't too loud. You just got to try it out. Maybe after the Doc is sawing logs, you can give Tony and Simon.
Just curious as what you mean by after the Doc is sawing logs... cause you know I could guess, MOL. But it doesn't necessarily make sense the way I'm thinkin.
Yup, Tony is Fine and Dandy. Woke up and walked out like nothin happened, MOL. Then the food provider witnessed him crawl back into his hiding spot as she was leaving.
The food provider was thinking of going to look at the turbo scratcher today but got called in to come work with us tonight; so it will have to wait till tomorrow...
Silly Simon, I meant, when the Doc is sleeping and snoring. To keep the Turbo Scratcher fun when I got tired of it, Mom scooted it under our dresser halfway. Then if the ball goes under the dresser I kill myself trying to reach it, which Mom makes sure I can. Also when you change the scratcher part catnip sprinkled on it helps.
If you think they would love a mouse that squeeks, they can have mine. We never liked it that well, but we understand some cats do. Maybe it was because Mom had real mousies in a glass box. I used to sit and watch them for hours. If one of them made a noise, I would run to check them out.
I've tried to do that hiding thing to scare the humans before - it can be pretty fun!
Hiding away from everyone is fun! We're glad to hear you didn't sneak outside.
Congratulations on being a diary pick today! Wonderful! So glad you are safe! Sorry about the veto on the scratching post. Maybe the person will have a change of heart!
OMC we missed readingthis diary that must have been furry scarry for the food provider! So glad you were not lost.
