Where in the World was Jinx.

Jinx as you all know, is my adventure seeking little fluffy cat. She  is her own girl, loves most people and other animals, even the dog. She will nose touch even Mr. Pees a lot, aka Jekyll. But the call of the wild is strong in this one, so much so that an open door is an invite to escape into the unknown. Does not matter that food or water is available to her or not, off she will go. Like there is a voice in her head that says the grass is always greener on the other side. Hmm, what the fluffy one doesn't know is she really doesn't have wild cat instincts in her and that the outside is fraught with so may dangers. Just the strong hold the outside has on her banishes all of the smart cat reasoning in her head. So on Jinx's last adventure she was outside for 24 hours. I had the feeling she was stuck under the neighbors house. Because the neighbor has a small yippy dog, this kept Jinx under the house no matter what anyone did to coax her out. We left food and water close to the spot we knew she had gotten in. I checked often before I had to turn in for the night, just hoping she would manage to sneak out, but I am sure she was scared witless, as the yippy dog barks at the slightest noise. The next day, 24 hours later I spoke to my Grandson and ask that he go and sit outside for awhile to coax Jinx out, he agreed, and about a half hour of him sitting outside, away from his video game, she came out from under the house, in what he describes as very fluffed out agitated cat. So much for your grand adventure Jinx. I would like to say I told you so, but because your a cat, and have your ideas as to what is right and wrong, you will not listen. But maybe just maybe this last adventure will stick and the fear you felt will remain in your head. Happy Momma Cat.
