Default Invisible cat

The weather isn't nice today, it's been raining almost all day but Boyfriend
decided he'd like to go in and out, anyway.
I just let him in, hopefully for the night, shut the door behind him, he
examined his food dishes, neither dry not wet suited and he went into the
lounge.
That's when he totally disappeared. He can't get upstairs, the door is
shut. He isn't here on any of the chairs or settee. I called him, he
didn't appear.
I think he must have teleported himself to see Tortie. Nan, if you notice a
handsome tabby and white boy around your place, it's him. Tell him to come
back immediately.
This is weird. He came in and now he isn't here.
gibber I'm not scared

I think that's happened with all my crew at one time or another. LB is
the most likely to disappear, because she goes through these phases
where she wants to sleep in out of the way spots. Her funniest spot,
which I only found after several disappearances, entailed her going in
the closet and climbing into a soft sided suitcase which on one side
partially unzipped.

There is some degree of risk to this hiding place. My father once
had problems with a possum hanging around his house, and finding its
way into his finished attic, used as a storage room. The possum
finally disappeared. About six months later, he found its mummified
remains inside an old soft-sided suitcase. One seam was ripped, and
the possum had apparently climbed inside through the already-ripped
seam, and then suffocated in its own carbon dioxide. The suitcase
was sufficiently airtight that we hadn't noticed any smell in the
attic beyond a slight mustiness.

Place an empty cardboard box in the middle of the room.

He'll appear,

Thanks for the warning - though I doubt that you'll be getting any
thanks from LB. I would not have thought it could be dangerous. I just
went and closed up that hide-away.

:-D

My three can do this - I call it "gone into stealth mode"

Waffles, who is completely black, also does a great camoflage cat mode when she
curls up on her favourite seat in the office - which happens to be black ;-)
