I asked Spencer to go into the back yard and yell for Katie (it’s fenced). Lucy said “I saw Katie earlier today at Owen’s house. I called to her but she didn’t come.”
I sent Lucy over to Owen’s to check and see if she was still there. Sure enough, she was hiding under their car.
I figured she could make it back home without any trouble because of the scent. Apparently she relies more on sight then I thought. The house where she was hiding is the same color as ours (probably same floor plan too!)
After I brought her in, she went straight to her scratching post, then to the garage where we keep her litter box and food.
We’re SO happy to have her home!
