|The longest I ever hid was 3 or 4 days and it was just after me, Hope and Gracie were trapped. My mom had to keep us separate until we were blood tested, but we were all semi-feral so while the girls just shook, there was one time when I was able to escape and I shot into the bedroom and under the bed. It is a queen size, I was only 3 months old, of course everyt ime she moved to get me I ran to the other side. So she gave up. She cleared all the other cats out, and just let me stay there. I would not eat for her for two days, it was hard to tell if I took water and I didnt use the box either. I ripped a hole in the boxspring and climbed in there. After four days she had enough, she took the bed apart, and began flipping the box spring up, slowly cutting the fabric, she had me trapped in a corner and scruffed me. And just held me for as long as I could stand it back in the bathroom. She asked to please never do that again. I still hide, but not like that....and she cut all the fabric off the box spring too.
My sister Trinity is not a scaredy cat, but when she was 3 months old she did the same thing as you Calvin, she hid and did not come out when my mom called for her. It was just mom and her at the time so she freaked out and started moving furniture and crying and calling my grandma.....then after 25 minutes Trinity came out of inside the under part of the convertible sofa instead of just being behind it or under the open part in the front. My mother was terrified, she picked her up and cuddled and kissed her for a long time.
