Where's the Kitty?

An interesting thing happened today when I was doing a dog walk that has an excellent message in it for all of us who live with cats.

One of my clients went out of town for several days and asked me to walk her dog while she is away. Her husband is still in town but works during the day so she only needed midday walks for her pooch. Besides their little terrier, they also have a very sweet friendly cat who always greets me when I arrive. I usually talk to the kitty and  give him some cuddles before I  leash the dog and go for our walk.
Today, the kitty did not greet me at the door. I called his name but he did not respond. I figured he might be in his litter box or otherwise occupied and didn't worry about it. I leashed the dog and we went for our walk. When we returned 30 minutes later, the cat was still not around. I called him several times and started looking around but he was nowhere to be seen. I began to worry because this cat is not a hider. I decided to open the hall closet and check there and sure enough the cat came bounding out and rolled around on the carpet. He came over and rubbed against my leg and purred. "thanks for letting me out of there".
Obviously the cat had accidentally been closed into the closet before the owner left for work. He must have been in there for several hours without food, water or his litter box. Poor kitty!

The message, make sure you know where your kitty/kitties are before you leave the house.
