Hi all, Not really looking for much of a response as there's nothing I can do now til morning. Just offloading really I guess As some of you know, the neighbours cat smudge comes to see us most days. This morning she had some breakfast and then wandered into the bedroom (bold as brass lol) and settled down to sleep. She has a little basket as well that I put in the bedroom for her to use (she only uses it when extremely knackered) Anyway, today she has literally spent the whole day in bed (9am onwards) Got in from an evening out with friends at 10.30pm and OH said she was still sleeping. Now usually she sleeps a few hours, eats a lot and then goes out again (throughout the day) It's such a change from her usual routine that I got very worried about her. Offered a bowl of her favourite fresh chicken and tuna as well and she wasn't remotely interested. Now I felt I couldn't just leave her there asleep as I couldn't assess what might be the matter with her. So, I picked her up from her basket and got the biggest angriest growl from her ever! She's never done that to me! She seemed a bit wobbly on her feet for a while (upstairs) and then ran downstairs and through the open back door before I could catch her. Absolutely hissing it down with rain here now - have called her but no sign. I so hope that she isn't ill and I've set her loose outside.....:crying: Feel really bad for getting her up now but you can't assess a cat properly when it's lying down looking drowsy, can you? I know she's not my responsibility but it was too late to alert her owners by the time I got home. Pls. keep your fingers crossed she's alright........thanks!
