Have you ever wondered...
whether or not your cat can become invisible? Is it possible that cats have some sort of ability that enables them to avoid perception by the human eye? No, I have not been partaking in my feline friends' supply of catnip. I'm just searching for an explanation to some rather mysterious feline behavior.
Lately, Gracie has been vanishing from sight whenever the construction crew arrives at the house to work on rebuilding the back porches. After a certain amount of time goes by without any sign of her, I usually start searching her latest hiding places, then her old hiding places, and finally any potential new ones that may have arisen due to the construction chaos. My mother hen instinct kicks in, and I just need to know that she is okay.
It is always when I am moving from concerned to panicked that she just "appears". One minute she's nowhere to be found, and the next she is right beside me. I can't understand how she does it. The only explanation that seems to work is invisibility.
And, not only would this ability explain Gracie's daily vanishing act, but it would also help me understand why I hear noises at night but don't see who or what makes them. I jump out of bed at the first "bump" or "clunk" I hear, but I can never discover the culprit making the noise. Gracie may be able to move quickly, but she is not supersonic. Of course, not wearing my glasses and still being half asleep when all this occurs tends to impede my investigative skills.
Alas, once again I am left to ponder the puzzle that is a cat. I just wish I knew where all the pieces were.
Enlightening comments about today's thought are welcomed, so please feel free to share.
