My friend Pepperfly is looking after my two monsters as you know. And just a few days ago she sent me some great photos of Wuppie sniffing and sniffing everything outside. Yes, he had been let out. He was back in ten minutes. No problemo!

This morning she let him out again. Around eleven. And after a very nerve-wracking day with lots of opening strange sheds, looking under hedges and wondering if and how to tell me (they did, through e-mail, early on). 

The clock moved on however and there was still no sign of the big Wupster. Until just before nine, he just sauntered in. As if there was nothing wrong with him or the world. The most normal thing to do!! My guess is that he probably was somewhere close by anyway, but loved the great and new outdoors so much, he wanted to spend more time in it. Ten hours long!!! 

For the foreseeable future however: he is grounded!


  1. Wuppie thinks we worry too much. Well, he is grounded anyway.(So my nerves cab calm down again......)

  2. Ooh, worrying but cats know where they're best off . . . in the warm, with lots of cuddles and food . . . :-) . . . and they know which buttons to press . . . bless them (Grrrr!)

  3. I was so relieved to get your message saying he had returned, Mara. Very scary for you, and for Betsie, too.

  4. Hi Mara, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  5. Yes, that would be nerve-wracking.

  6. Love, love, love your header photo. Absolutely a dream of mine to see that! Yes, grounded sounds like a good plan for Wuppie.
