Wink I found one Chanterelle today!

Our cat, Chanterelle, was MIA today.

She didn't appear as she normally does when I get up and take my coffee to my chair. I called her but she didn't come out from wherever she was. Every so often I would call her, but nope. I figured she had found a new hiding place, and after awhile i started searching and trying to flush her out. Nope, no cat.

Well, she must have slipped out when Debbie went to work.
I went to the back door as that is the only one we use for her, so I figured she would be waiting there to come in.

When I opened the inside door to the porch, I could hear her meowing. When I opened the outside porch door to unlock the screen door, I saw she was in between the two doors. Kind of like a cattle chute.
Didn't squish her, but neither could she do anything but stand up or lie down. The poor cat had been stuck there for about 9 or 10 hours. Apparently she had tried to go out when I was closing the doors last night, and I didn't see her with the light off.

Surprisingly she seemed rather blasť about the whole thing, other than she did make a beeline for her cat box and then to the food dish. LOL

I'm still laughing and still feeling guilty when I say "poor cat" and then laugh.

Poor Chanty! I think I could see you blushing over the phone when you were telling me about it!

Happy Morel Dreams!

Cats - love'em but will never figure out they way they think about things sometimes. LOL

The best lessons are those learned before you wish you had known better, especially when thinking edible mushrooms.

Happened to me also. Went in the attic and never saw Lester (she is female ??? I know!) go in when I was putting something away. Luckily I went up later and had to get in again and out she came, no worse for wear. Crazy cats. I really don't know who named her. She was Harold's barn cat for a long time with the little pigs and would ride on his shoulder while he fed the sows. You would think we farmers would know the difference between m and f. Oh, have a new 6 week old golden retriever pup. He is so good. Named him Cooper. We had to put our Teddy to sleep last Nov. and were just waiting til after shroom season to get a new pup.
