The Hiding Spot.

We couldn’t find Pia and for a little while, we were worried.

Okay, that’s not entirely true. We were in a panic. Well, Mom was in a panic. Dad’s much more level-headed about such things and knew she just had to be somewhere inside the house. It’s not like we have a black-hole vortex thing here…like we did at the first apartment we lived at together. The one that sucked up one bright purple Lakers t-shirt, size 4XXT and the F4 key on that poor, underpowered, overused Amiga 500. Both vanished, gone, a mystery, *poof!* Never to be seen or heard from again.

“Where’s Pia?” Mom wandered the house calling, trying not to sound half-crazed. We listened for Pia’s peeping mews. Nothing. “Pia? Pia?”

“Pia Peepers Sassy Pants! You will answer your mother right this minute, young lady!” Mom didn’t actually say that but from the look in her eyes, you’d know in a heartbeat she’d really wanted to.

And then….

Scritchy, scritchy *sounds of scrambling as though coming from a deep well* Peep! Peep! Peeeeeeeeeeeeep! As if to say, “Here I am, Mom! I found the best hiding spot ever! Uh…What? Where you looking for me?”

  1. Oh Pia fancy worrying your Mom by playing hide and seek with her – we love the picture of your little face peeking up at your Mom.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  2. OMC, that’s too funny! What a brilliant hiding spot.

    BTW, our human would have been in a full-blown panic, so she feels for your mom. LOL.

  3. LOL, nice job Pia!

  4. look at that face. 🙂 our mom would have been freaked out too though

  5. Pia you cracked us up. Well funny. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly
    PS Some people have said they have lost our post feeds. We are posting as usual.

  6. Pia, you found such a neat spot! Of course now your human has broadcast it all over the internet so it’s no longer secret. Oh well….. We sometimes find really neat hiding spots and Mom gets all concerned if we don’t come out of hiding right away. Don’t humans realize that we need some “me” time now and then??? 😉

  8. Ohhhh I love it! What a silly girl Pia is! Isn’t that just the worst when you look and look EVERYWHERE and you can’t find them? Then they always turn out to be in the silliest places!
    This was a brilliant hiding spot!
    Good job Pia!

  9. What a cool hiding spot! I want one of those – I bet it would make my human crazy!

  10. OMC, that is funny. What a great hiding spot. I have done that frantic searching thing too — certain my cat is inside but still nowhere to be found.

    We kitties can find the bestest hidy spots around!

  12. My deceased kitteh Angel Normie slept in a ceramic Mexican pot. He called it his casita. He would stay in there for hours and come out to cry for his cannies (stinky goodness).

  13. Well that is a great hidey spot Pia! I can only imagine the panic though!!!

  14. Oh Miss Pia you found a great hidey hole. And it’s nearly the same color as you, what a great piece of camouflage! We are impressed!!!

  15. LOL that is the cutest picture!!

  16. What a great hidey spot Pia!

  17. MOL! Pia, SCORE!

    Maxwell: I did the same thing to papa yesterday. Momma was at work and he was frantically texting her cuz I kinda had hidden away. Of course, calling me? Not such a great idea since I can’t hear, MOL! I just wandered in 45 minutes later and wondered why he looked so ticked off….

    Allie: Oh girlfriend – I loooove your vase accessory – totally matches your eyes!!

  18. That’s a great hidey-place. If you do something like that, you can get them to forgive you for just about anything if you just come out, so it’s good to save new hiding spots like that for after you knock something down and break it.

  19. MOL! Good hiding place, Pia! 🙂

  20. Some of us do that sort of thing, too. We won’t say who usually does that (cough, anne, cough).

    Dad never gets TOO worried if he can’t find one of us. He figured it will be supper time soon enough, and we pretty much all show up for that.

  21. That was a grate hidey spot! Way to go Pia.

  22. Whew! Miss Pia Bean, I think I panicked as much as your mom did when I thought you were lost for good. You’re a very clever hider, but please don’t skeer us like that!

  23. Cute Pia! Great hiding place 🙂

  24. molol! love those pictures! our mom is always amazed at how we can “disappear” in our house. Gives her a good “aerobic” workout sometimes!

  25. Pia found the purrfect pot…exactly her color. Was she able to get out on her own or did you have to help her? The photos are definitely squeeable. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
