She's a Stinker...




Have you ever had a cat...
who refused to stay inside???


At the very beginning...
Sadie was an accomplished escape artist...
There was no keeping her inside...
the most curious and playful kitty...


She got out...
she climbed trees...
she escaped a close encounter with a coyote...
she stayed out for two nights (down south)...
returning home hungry and dirty...


When we got to Mammoth...she even went out in the snow, 
on our deck that she couldn't get down from...
When we moved to our current house, her time outdoors has been limited...
our deck is easy for a kitty to escape, so we have attempted to keep them inside...
although occasionally, 
if we're all outside during the summer, she's been known to escape and carouse a bit.

Well...
that brings us to today...
sometime between yesterday afternoon and today she escaped undetected...
tonight I realized I hadn't seen her for awhile...
as a matter of fact...I couldn't remember when I saw her last.
 Cleo...her cohort kitty...was wandering the house and yowling...
and I started to realize that Sadie was nowhere to be found in the house.

The difference from her disappearing act in Glendale to today is that 
today it was snowing all day.  
By about 8:00 this evening I was convinced the local bobcat had snagged her...


or God forbid, that she had frozen...

After dinner (yeah...we eat late!)
I went into the living room to watch American Idol...
sniffling and lamenting the disappearance...
when all of a sudden...
I heard a plaintive cry at the front door.
I ran to the door...opened it...and in came Sadie!!!
Freezing cold...a bit of snow on her tail...and quite proud of herself.
she ran in and ran straight for the food...

Right now...she's contentedly curled up on the chair next to me by my computer...
Darned cat!!!
