Okay now, I know things get busy when a couple get married. Take my owners for example. They’ve been running around like their heads were cut off at times. However, that doesn’t excuse forgetting me.
I’m getting ahead of myself.
My parents got married July 7th. They had some friends stay with us at home during the whole thing. I shared the bed with Mari, the Maid of Honor during her stay. Well, when she left and my parents left they closed all the doors upstairs so us cats wouldn’t wreck anything.
Mom asked Mari to double check her room for any cats before closing the door. Well, I’m a good hider. I love to be upstairs and am constantly found hiding under beds, laying on tubs or in the closets.
Well, they left. And our neighbor cam over to feed us and give us water. Well, he was told that I was a scaredy cat and usually hid from strangers. So he didn’t think of anything when he didn’t see me. And he never called my name so I never meowed for him to find me. I only meow when being called.
I was locked in that spare room for 10 days! No water, no food, no litter box!
Mom came to my rescue. She was home and did a head count and didn’t see me. She called my name and I meowed. I was a proper lady and didn’t meow unless she called my name. She found me withered away to nothing.
I got fed right away. The whole room is a mess. I tore up the whole carpet trying to free myself. And I used the bed as a litter box. The bed covers, mattress and boxspring are ruined. But luckily my parents don’t blame me.
I now follow my family everywhere, I don’t like being alone. Also, I haven’t stepped one paw back into that room.
I’m just glad my family is back and I’m safe and sound. I’m slowly trying to gain my weight back.
I keep thinking that it should have been fat Drusilla locked up there. She could have stood to loose the weight. Not me, I was so skinny to begin with. But I’m trying to make up for it now.
Glad to be alive!
