The kittens had a worrying little adventure last night, both vanishing from sight from late evening until past bedtime. I couldn’t find them in their usual hangouts and they didn’t come out when I went to bed.
I didn’t get a lot of sleep, waking up at odd hours with a new place to check without finding them.
Early this morning I was doing another search and this time Julie was coming along with me looking too. I finally remembered that I opened a cabinet the night before to put a pot away. Soon after I opened it up first Davout, and then Rhea came hesitantly out.
I’m not sure they knew how to get out on their own, but they weren’t scared yet either.
Also they did play some, but have been a bit sleepy and mild today compared to a normal day, so they might have been a little worried in the cabinet as I was outside of it.
The cabinets push out and don’t have a catch – the older cats sometimes have opened them up to have a look or find a quiet dark corner on their own. But the little ones probably don’t know that yet.
I turned on the fisher toy and let Davout play with the camera strap tonight. There was more watching from afar and a lot less crazy running about even a day later. I’m sure they will bounce back soon.
