The little stinker - I waited up for him as long as I could, but I finally fell asleep about 12:30. My husband got up at 5 and went to all the doors again, calling for him and shaking a treat can, but no sign of him. I got up at 5:30, and my husband was sitting on the couch looking really dejected, saying there was still no sign of Dudley. I walked over to the door leading to the garage (I had left the overhead door open all night), opened it, and a certain extremely NAWTY striped kitty casually sauntered out from under my car and into the house. Grrrrrrrrrrr! He was immediately punished with a lot of hugs and kisses and sent to bed (he's curled up right now next to the heat vent in the office, washing in between his back toes ).
It's not my skin kid who gives me gray hairs, it's these kitties!
