Ella's 24-hour adventure

Ella gave us a bit of a panic last weekend. She snuck out on the back deck while we were out there Saturday night, only we didn't notice. Thus, we shut the door and locked her out overnight. Because she spends most of her day sleeping in various hiding places, we didn't discover our mistake until the next afternoon. Then, we were frantic. She's never really been outside and for those of you who have met her, you know she can be a bit neurotic. We organized a search party (of Frank & Nicki-- Thanks guys!), plastered the neighborhood with flyers and visited the animal shelter. Harry joined in the search yelling "El! El!" from his stroller. About 10:30 p.m. Sunday night, our neighbor knocked on our back door, and in ran Ella. He found her in his grill. Have no idea how she got in there. But she's back, phew.
