We thought we had lost Lucy yesterday.

I had asked Keith to take the screens out of the windows so we could clean them-after all it's only been, oh, maybe 3 or 4 years since we cleaned the windows? Or maybe we've never cleaned the windows, who knows. Anyway, he got all gung ho and took not just the screens but the actual windows out so he could clean the runners which were indeed totally nasty.

So, here we are with the living room window wide open and no screen and of course the cats are really curious about this so we locked the cats we could round up in the bedroom. Then a little while later we realized that Lucy was nowhere to be found. Uh oh...

We looked everywhere, under the beds, in the closets, in the garage. Our house is really small so there aren't that many hiding places for little kitties. Well, crap, she must have gotten out the window.

So, Keith searched all the yards around us and no Lucy.

We were worried but finished up on the window job keeping an eye out for Lucy and hoping she would find her way home.

A few hours later Keith went into the living room and there was Lucy, innocently laying in the middle of the floor.

We still haven't figured out where she was hiding, but we were really glad that she was safe inside and not out wandering the neighborhood.

This is her favorite sleeping position-doesn't it look comfy?

I'm glad Lucy is home safe & sound - those kitties are tricky little creatures! :-)
