Sometimes kitties will hide to overcome a stressful situation, and sometimes they end up hiding because the space they were investigating got closed up. Some favorite hiding places include:
Open dresser drawers, closets-on the upper shelves and in the dark lower recesses, lower kitchen cabinets, under the head board of water beds, under the bed and other furniture, on top of tall furniture, washers, dryers; we even found one cat who managed to find his way underneath the built-in dishwasher and got stuck.
Mine hid in the audio port of the left Klipshe speaker. I thought he disappeared after he was scared out of his wits when I turned on the ceiling fan for the first time. It took me 10 minutes to find him and he would not come out for fear of the blades rotating. He has gotten over this some time ago :)
Your Favourite Hiding places paragraph jogged me to write the following. Our 17 year old cat has started to sleep in a dip on top of our tall hedge. We dont know how he is getting up there or why. He even stays out when it rains or is windy. He also jumps onto the back of an armchair at the top. Why we wonder.
