LadyRanger and I had been going in and out of the front door a few days ago. Exactly why escapes me now. After we'd been in and settled for 10-15 minutes, I realized that Maddie was nowhere to be seen. Checked all her favortie spots. No cat. That's when the coronary started. She's not as adventurous now as she was in her younger days, so I didn't *think* she's slipped out, but, hey, cat. You can never tell, can you? Took a quick second look around the house, making sure to hit even the less popular hidey-holes.
