I grilled Brats on the outdoor grill last night--and Mr. Guido took the opportunity to slink his way outside (un-seen).
We were chomping our feast when Lord V perked up his head and said, "Is that Guido?"
Apparently he heard him yowling.
He got up and searched out side calling for Guido but couldn't find him.
Guido has snuck out before and always come back so I wasn't too alarmed and knew he'd be back when he got cold.
A short time later while cleaning up the dinner carnage MiniWarrior heard Guido scratch at the door. He opened the door and Mr. Guido shot inside slinking low and looking spooked and cold.
"Where's his collar? I don't hear it jingling?" MiniWarrior asked.
I coaxed Mr. Guido out from under the darkness of the stairs and found him bare necked. Collar gone.
We think the yowl that Lord V heard was Guido being trapped outside by his collar!
Thank goodness I followed the cat rule of only placing a break-away collar on him and didn't put a regular collar on him!
Now that it's daylight I'm going hunting to see if I can find where Mr. Guido had been trapped...
