Wordless Wednesday Link-Up: Stowaway

We just finished two weekends of family travel--so there have been lots of suitcases and bags out and about. I've mentioned that Miss Elsa Kitty LOVES boxes, bags, baskets, bowls, cabinets, closets--or virtually anything that involves climbing in and out of for a little exploration. I pulled out a suitcase one morning for later packing in preparation for our Pittsburgh trip--and thought I would share my little stowaway as this week's Wordless Wednesday Link-Up.

Now you See Elsa....
She hung out with me all morning--guarding the dog's toy.  She doesn't like me very much since I'm the primary disciplinary force in the house....and she's the primary problem child--but, she does spend a lot of time keeping an eye or two on my activities.  Curiosity always gets the best of her.

Where did Elsa Go?
I thought that the suitcase was zipped--so I just assumed Miss Else had moved on to explore a different spot of the house . Until I tried to move the empty suitcase and it felt as if it were anchored to the floor.....and five claws grabbed my hand through a 4 inch opening in the side zipper.

Yeah.  Somehow in my rush to begin packing--I didn't see it coming.  I did feel it though.

Hmmm. Elsa's Latest Stowaway Attempt

I think she spent about 3 hours in the suitcase before climbing out. At least when she was contained in the suitcase, she was giving the dog's toys, the cupboards, (me), and the downstairs wallpaper a much needed Elsa-break!

Yep.  This is the primary reason I always pack a lint roller...and avoid black pants!  My "leaving the house for a weekend trip checklist" now includes a line for "Make sure Elsa is not in any of the bags."

Now it's your turn to share!
