Missing Millie

Sunday, September 2, 2018
posted by Jim Murphy

My cat Millie is a very routine little girl. She does things precisely the same time every day. She get us when I get up at 8:00am, she gets her food at 8:15am, she sleeps on top of the sofa in the sun room in the morning, she gets brushed as soon as I get out of the shower, she then retires to the back bedroom for her afternoon nap. She gets her snack every night at 7:00 pm. Millie is a house cat and never goes outside. She doesn’t even like to sit on the porch anymore.

Yesterday after watering the plants on the porch, I came inside to do some work on the computer. About 11:00 am my partner, asked me where Millie was. I said I didn’t know so we began to search the house. We looked in all of her usual places, under beds, in closets, in cabinets,,,,,everywhere but couldn’t find her. I began to panic. She was no where to be found! It was pouring outside and I couldn’t imagine that she could have gotten out. I looked on the porch twice and called her….no Millie.

The third time I searched the porch, there was Millie, apparently upset, she darted inside…she was now back in her ” safe place.”  I didn’t see her the two times I checked on her and she wasn’t wet so she must have been somewhere on the porch.

Losing a pet is a very stressful experience and being that Millie never likes to go outside, this was particularly disturbing. Cats do things for different reasons. I just felt bad that she was trapped outside for over 3 hours. We’re just glad to have her back and are now very careful to check on her every time we go in and out!
