It’s about 12:45 am here in Atlanta, GA. Approximately three hours ago, it started snowing and within those three hours, we’ve already accumulated about 3 inches of snow. It’s still snowing heavily as I type.
My cat was missing for a while. My grandson let her out at about 9:30 pm. By 10:30 pm when we checked to make sure the cats were inside, “Prissy” our grey Tabby was no where to be found.
I don’t know if cats rely on scents and their markers during regular weather, but the family figured she had lost her scent and couldn’t find her way home in the snow. I told my daughter-in-law to start her car (with her remote car starter) and see if the sound would lure her back home. After the car started I opened the garage door and called her. No Prissy.
Just as I had begun to close the garage door and as panic set in that she may be lost in the blizzard, Prissy came scamping in right before the garage door shut completely. Prissy was home!
