Does your cat ignore you? My three cats are indoor only kitties—always have been and always will be. Because they are interested in the world outside the doors and windows, our family is very careful when entering and exiting our home. Even so, I was beside myself the other day when I could not locate our youngest in any of her regular hideouts (the tiptop of the cat tower, the suitcase under the bed, among my shoes in the closet). I even broke out the bag of cat treats and shook it vigorously. That usually brings her running, but this time it did not. Nearly in tears, I headed downstairs to ask my husband for help.
