As you furiends who have read Viola's earlier musings already know, she very much follows the Ocicat breed characteristic of following her pawrents all around the house, to the extent that one of our nicknames for her is "Shadow", for the way she shadows us. Last night she had been a bit picky about eating dinner, something very unusual for Miss Piggy, so I decided to check up on her. I went out in the hallway and called her, which usually brings her running. No Viola. I noticed the hall linen closet was slightly open (the latch is spring loaded, so a strong enough push or pull will open it), so I quickly checked the closet and no Viola. She had previously used all the nice soft bedding here as a comfy nap spot a few times. While this might not have bothered most cat pawrents, we were getting a bit concerned as this was SO unlike her. I made a few more loops around the house, and about the third time I find her in the hallway, the same one with the linen closet. We all go about our business, and about an hour later, same thing happens. I noticed that I had left that linen closet door open, so after a quick look inside, I closed it. More looking, more calling, and at this point meowmy and daddy are really getting concerned, again because this had never happened in the five months Viola had been in our family. I was standing in the hallway wondering where to look next when I heard a faint scratching from that durn linen closet. I open the door and out pops our little overgrown spotted kitten, as if nothing had happened! Daddy should have remembered how much she loves to snuggle UNDER the covers, I am sure that is what she was doing there.
