Toulouse That Got Loose!
June 22 - July 1, 2003 missing 9 days.
Suzanne captures her kitty by turning her basement
into a trap!
Toulouse was first brought up out of the basement, he hissed and growled
a lot. But, for him, that's not terribly unusual.. . .in the first
few months we had him, we trained him to sit up and beg for sliced
turkey, but he was so suspicious of us that he'd grumble and growl
the entire time he was begging... hilarious, I tell you."
talked about Toulouse finding a dry place to hide in my last message...
guess what... he found our basement!!!
just had this strong feeling that I needed to go look in the basement
a little while ago, and lo and behold, there he was! I ran to shut
and lock the outside door, and he dashed off into a hiding place.
But, he's in there!!!
still not entirely out of the woods yet, as there are about a million
kitty hiding places in our basement (our landlord stores so much
junk down there). But, I've checked as thoroughly as I can, and
I'm sure there's no way he can get out of the basement, other than
the door I now have open into our part of the duplex. I moved the
Feliways plug-in down to the basement, and put some canned food
in the middle of the floor, and I'm going to give him a chance to
calm down and come out again before I go back down there.
you so, so much for all of the help. I'll
let you know when we get him out of the basement... hopefully, it
will be tonight!
One very happy cat-mom Suzanne
kitty mate Satine
Suzanne and her husband successfully captured their kitty Toulouse,
here is what the vet had to say:
vet found nothing wrong with Toulouse, with one exception. She said
that if he lost any weight while he was gone, it was a good thing,
because both cats are actually a little chunky. So, Toulouse was
in no danger of wasting away in the week he was gone.
