Almost a "cat"astrophe

I almost wrote this post to inquire if or how it was possible for not one, but two kittens to escape from a Georgetown without going through the door.

My wife has the MH down in Arizona with three cats. The two boys disappeared last night and she was frantic trying to figure out where they had gone. Under the dash was the first suspicion since they like to climb up there. All the closets were searched. They were not to be found. No meowing could be heard.

Finally, after 24 hours missing, she found them under the seat of the dinette. They had climbed into the drawer when she had it open and they probably found the empty cavern behind the drawer. They came out with their legs crossed and mad as heck. They wouldn't go to her for two hours.

What a relief and a memory.

Had a female some years ago that could open cupboards and dresser drawers. She would open the bottom drawer of the DW's dresser, climb in and ascend to the top drawer at the back of the dresser. She'd then bury herself in the clothes and go to sleep. She was just a tiny thing and we lost her on many occasions due her inclination to climb into and hang out in some really tight spots.

we had a cat when I was in college that managed to get locked in the closet in my parents spare bedroom. She was an indoor/outdoor cat and still had her claws. She shredded my sister's wedding dress and the bag it was in. She had created a home in the bottom of the bag. fortunately my sister had been married for a couple years but so he lost the ability to keep it for her daughters.

Ours travels in the storage bin between the two front buckets then prowls the trailer at night. We ended up using door draft stoppers behind the couch to keep her from accessing the storage space below. We have not decided how to take her on the cruiser and finding undiscovered spaces between the cabin and the bilge.

We also travel with 3 cats. Two are fine, they don't care about anything. One walks around anytime, sleeps anywhere. The 2nd mostly sleeps. Now the third one has some kind of extra sensory perception. Anytime we get ready to go, he hides. Under the dash is a favorite place. One time he climbed under sink, where the trash can is, climbed over the back wall and into the silverware drawer. We almost gave up until my daughter went to open that drawer and saw his tail.
