what a clever cat. thomas knows how to come back up the vent . he just will not do it.

we had a lot of trouble with him and vents about 2 years ago.my son finally got them screwed down. then handyman was laying tile. he didn't bother screwing the lid back down and out he went in the past , the first day or so after i get him in, he yowls to go back out, on and on and on he goes and i yell shut up. lol eventually he quits doing it.

he is mad now, drip in tub is where he drank water. has water jug in kitchen, mind you. so he yowls to get in bathroom cause i have door closed. so much trouble from one little cat.

i do thank you all for your support and concern. it did make me feels better.

Oh, babe! I can breathe a sigh of relief now that Thomas is back inside. Tell him he has to spend half a day in the kitty time out basket for making you worry so much.

Just reading this now. Glad he came home safe and sound. I have spent many an hour worrying about not only my cats, but my neighbours' ones as well!! We had thunder and hail storms on Saturday night and I even took one of them into my house for the night until the storms had passed. Hot fish and chips wrapped up in paper was always my standby to get roaming cats inside. Didn't work with them all but most of 'em.

I know what they like BT!! Pre-salted and vinegared - there is no other way!! (It was very useful when trying to find a black cat in the dark!!)
