Queen cat “Matahari” loves playing Hide and Seek

by Rudolph.A.furtado

Below is a candid video of my feline “Matahari” hiding in my drawer, immune to it being opened and closed.

She loves entering open drawers and cramped spaces in the house, sitting quietly in the cramped spaces.

The first time this happened almost 2 years ago we thought that she had slipped out of the house door into the building.

I personally inquired with the wathchmen and people outside the compound finally thinking that she had been stolen, as traditional Persian cats are quite expensive in Mumbai.

All hope was given up and I returned home and later suddenly heard some scratching sound in my bedroom bed cupboard.

On opening the cupboard we found Matahari totally at ease, immune to the chaos she had created for her human owners! From that day we are very particular when we close our cupboards or drawers.

This particular video was filmed when I accidentally kept my drawer open, busy at my computer with the “FM Music” playing. I just notice that she is totally at ease when I open and close the drawer, just not making any attempt to jump out of a closing enclosed box.

I am sure other cat owners would have had similar experiences, if not, then take heed of checking drawers or cupboards before closing them.

Aug 18, 2010 Cats in the Wardrobe
by: Gail (Boston, MA USA)

Very very funny. Sadie does the same thing with a tall wardrobe – the top part is for hanging clothes with mirrored doors and the bottom is a drawer. At any given moment, if I cannot find her, she’s most likely in th wardrobe hanging out. She likes it there. I’ve learned not to close either top or bottom tightly for fear she’ll be stuck when I’m out. Ahhhh…

What a great video. Our cats too love drawers. Especially Midnight. She loves daddys draweres. Sometimes he will leave one open for her for a while. We dont close them on her though. Your cat must have a way to get in and out.

Hi Rudolph. This made me smile. The totally relaxed way she deals with you opening and closing the drawer is funny.

I think this is the passive Persian cat character showing. They are meant to be a part of the furniture! Matahari is taking this literally.

She can, though, be extremely adventurous performing death defying walks on narrow ledges.

Thanks for sharing Rudolph.
