My friend was at our house on Sunday and as he was coming in Chris ran out the door. With quick reflexes, my friend grabbed Chris before he made it past the first stair. Unfortunately, the delay in closing the door was long enough for Frankie to slip out. That, in turn, was the distraction Chris needed to get away as well.
Chris usually stays close so I don’t worry too much about him. Mostly he just eats grass but he will wander away if given enough time.
Frankie is the one I worry about because he just takes off. I think he searches the neighborhood for fleas, at least that seems to be the result sometimes. If he is not going under homes then he is hiding under cars so I can’t catch him.
On this day I just gave up and waited until Frankie was ready. While I was waiting I retrieved Chris and put him in the house. Eventually, Frankie came out of hiding and I coaxed him to the front door. I didn’t want to scare him by trying to pick him up so I just opened the door and let him walk inside.
But wait…. As he was about to enter the house I could almost swear he had a look of surprise on his face like he thought he was about to explore a strangers house and found out it was his own. When he saw where he was he quickly turned around and ran off. Not long after that I found him too pooped to resist and carried him home.
“I think he [Frankie] searches the neighborhood for fleas … ”
Too funny! 😉
I am glad you caught him. I think the blog should be called Bad Cats Chris and Frankie
… or maybe “Bad Cat Chris & Frankie the Flea Forager”! 😉
I could start a new blog, “In search of fleas.”
Or a new band, “Frankie & the Fleas.” 😉
If we had Frankie when I named the blog I might have called it that.
When it comes to the outside, Frankie is just incorrigible!
He loves being outdoors.
Obviously some kind of game designed to drive you nuts AND get some freedom at the same time………we are wicked sometimes aren’t we?!?!?!
Tee Hee, Hugs, Sammy

Wally likes to make a beeline out the door. You gotta watch these guys!
It’s those darn gold cats.
Biscotti once escaped twice in one day and while he and Tipper were born in our back yard, they do not go outside – ever. It was quite distressing and a rare occurence. Glad you got everyone back home safely!!
