No Place to Hide

There's no place in this apartment to hide. Under the bed? They find me. Behind the couch? They look there too. In the closet? Doesn't work. So I found a new spot the other night. I thought it was perfect. This box is gray, I'm gray. There's no way the humans would find me I thought. I squeezed myself onto the top of the box. It's a little tougher to fit into small spaces than it used to be. Just as I got myself comfortable I saw the flashy box come out.

I tried to move further back, thinking she was just taking a photo of that picture box that they stare at all the time.

Then she started talking to me and I just resigned myself that this was not my new perfect hiding place. I guess I'll have to keep looking.

It's a tough life.

  1. Yup, we just don't know how they do it. Doesn't matter how good a place you find to hide, they always seem to find us.

  5. We can't believe she found you there since you blend in so well.

  6. Hahaha! Tuck, you are very funny and mischievous! And I don't think you're bad at hiding at all! Mmmh, I just realised that you are very slender - and silky! Wanna be my friend?

  7. Poor Tuck -a victim of your own cuteness! If you'd like to book a flight over, this house is just FULL of places to hide!

  9. Excellent hiding place and being a smart kitty you'll continue to find new ones.

    I will sometimes lie on the dresser and they don't even realize I'm there because it's too obvious.

  10. You should enjoy that spot while you are still little enough to fit in there, Tuck. (By the way, you look incredibly cute wherever you sleep - I guess that's why the flashy box appears!)

  11. My O my, that looked a tight squeeze! It's funny how the beans always find us!

  12. Wow! That was a good try at a hidey place! We like to hide under dressers, under the couch, behind the fridge where the window is (on the windowsill), and behind the bookshelves. When Tabby and Carbon first moved in, they climbed up the inside of the dresser and took naps in the first and second drawers! You'll find a good hidey place eventually.

  13. While I can sympathize with you Tuck, consider this...we're 4 here and it's IMPOSSIBLE to find a place to hide!

  19. It's usually the laser eyes that give you away, even if you have a really great spot, a mom with a flashlight is hard to fool.

  21. The humans can be very resourceful!
