i was in the bathroom tonight when i heard a muffled crash then heard the dog fussing around in a trying to help way then the most pitiful yowling and howling you have ever heard

i called dd who had her headphones on to come quick and help find the cat as i tried to rush out of bathroom - bad back - wondering what i would find

she opened bedroom door to find dusty back sock in dark hallway and in front room the cat fully fluffed up stood on a chair

the cat was covered in cobwebs and had a black smudge on his side and it took hours for him to calm down and stop acting spooked

he growled at me for about half an hour and then at the dog for a bit longer

what was that all about ?

Who knows what they get up to when you're not around. I've almost given up trying to second guess.

Can he reach the top of (or underneath) a wardrobe, say - if you have one? Sounds like he got himself in a 'spot' and then had to get out with difficulty. (Hence cobwebs and dusty sock.)

back of piano was my best guess - nothing was disturbed anywhere which was weird

That's good.

I'm not even going to ask what a sock was doing down the back of the piano!

Up a chimney?

I admit that that did cross my mind but even if out2lunch had an open chimney (don't know) then I think he wasn't dirty enough from what she said. I had a Siamese kitten who went up a chimney once and he came back black. Actually had to be bathed in the sink. (Not an experience I wish to ever repeat.)
