I just went to get a soda out of the refrigerator and found my cat laying on the bottom shelf. I was giving my dog a bath and didn't even realize he wasn't around. He had to have been in there for at least 15 minutes. As soon as I opened it up he looked at me, yawned and and got out. I am hoping I didn't freeze any of his brain cells.
The same thing happened to us on Xmas day, my daughter got a kitten for Xmas and it was totally comfortable with us right away. We were in the kitchen later,heard meowing, searched everywhere finally some one went in the fridge and there she was licking her paws.
LOL! i'll tell you what, my Kirby does the craziest things. His newest thing is running outside at night when I go to let the dogs use the bathroom. I can't tell you how many times I have had to run after him at 3:30 in the morning because he tries to have an adventure. I am sure the neighbors are wondering what the hell I am doing outside in a nitey, yelling obscene words, running around the back yard.
Your story has reminded me of a not-so-pleasant incident that happened to me in the hot summer months, I went out shopping and got home, opened the trunk to bring in my groceries and whilst I was inside he jumped in the trunk and went right down the end where I couldn't see him. I had another couple of bags of groceries and for some strange reason I bent down to have a good look to make sure that I had no more groceries although I kinda knew that I didn't and saw my cavalier trying to hide in the hope that he could get a tasty morsel of something. Had I shut the trunk and gone inside he would have died as it was a very very hot day; all it would have taken was 5 mins for him to collapse, now I know better and will always check to make sure that the little brat is not hiding.
