Poor pussy! - Words in the Heroes' Tongue
I have a variable-sword. I urge calm.

Poor pussy!
I'm all alone.

Daughter-dear is in Australia, and this morning curiouswombat set off for 10 days in the Isle of Skye. Her boat had an 8 am check-in time, departing from the terminal across the road from where I work; as I finish at 8 am the plan was for me to go straight out and see her off, but I got stuck on a call until 8.13 and had to rush across and had time only for a quick hug before she had to board.

Arriving home there was no sign of Shaka the cat, but when I went to the kitchen to make coffee I could hear faint and plaintive mewing from outside. I went out to investigate and realised that the mewing was coming from the shed. Yes, Shaka was locked in the shed. I called CW's mobile to let her know; she said that she had got something out from the shed last night, hadn't seen Shaka going in, and hadn't noticed that he wasn't in during the night except in a vague "Shaka isn't sitting on the keyboard so I can write undisturbed" sort of way. The pooor boy had been trapped in there overnight!

As I had to spend most of the day in bed, and am now off to work for another 10-hour shift, he's going to get very lonely.

Nothing that I can do about it, alas.

It was an accident!

Poor puss. Glad CW got off to Skye OK. Ten days alone - that sounds like complete and utter bliss to me.

Not as bad as what I inadvertantly did to one of my kitties. I let my oldest cat outside, but forgot. Around 1am I started wondering where he was (he's 13) and looked all through the house. Then I remembered he was outside and checked the front and back porches to see if he was hanging out there waiting to come in. What I didn't pay attention to was my youngest kitty went with me to check the front door. She's a Manx kitty and tiny (5 pounds at most I'd bet) and when I closed the front door, she fit between it and the screen door. She was very happy when I went to work the next morning. (Bad mommy!) She forgave me though.

One of our previous cats got trapped for a whole day under the floorboards of the house next door.

What a shame for your poor cat! Glad to hear curiouswombat got away okay. :)

Poor kitty. Enjoy your time by yourself. :)

I won't.

Cats are so good at that kind of thing. Wiley, the cat on the icon, was the reverse. He never left the apartment. He merely vanished into n space, so that I thought that he had left the apartment and was wandering lost and miserable around the building. Next day at breakfast, he would appear as if nothing had happened.

I hope that you aren't too lonely with your women off on vacation, leaving you and Shaka to entertain each other.

I am too lonely, I'm afraid.

Aw, Shaka... still he'll probably use the solitude today to work on his epic WIP, if he's like the rest of the family. Wouldn't be at all surprised to find some BNF revealed as actually your cat at some point in the near future.

He's thinking of leaving the fandom after the recent 'kit-e-cat for WIPs' scandal.
