Guess the cats out of the bag now...or rather out of the house....I'll see myself out
So some strange pet comes into your house and you nonchalantly kick it out. No confusion, no wondering where it came from, no looking for original owners, etc... Don't own pets.
There's a difference between the way you feel when you wake up in the morning and the way you feel being woken up in the middle of your sleep. You don't think straight and all your body cares about is more sleep. Seeing as he wasn't used to the cat he wouldn't be able to realise his mistake at dirt the second he woke up. If you own a cat your used to it around and its in your memory but it wasn't his cat
To #45 and #47, no, I've never tried "answering my hand", and I've only needed to recall where I am for about five seconds before the feeling goes away. I just don't see how you can be so tired that you: pick up the cat, get out of bed, walk towards the door, put the cat outside then walk back and crawl right into bed without a second thought over why a cat was in your house and why said cat looked so much like your sister's cat - which you agreed to take care of. Maybe I'm just looking too far into it, but that seems odd.
I can see how this person would get confused in the middle of her sleep. Give her a break, she is not an actual pet owner. And furthermore, I own three cats. If I woke up to a random cat in my house, it would immediately get put out. No questions asked. You have no idea what kind of feline diseases that animal may have.
Depending on how sleep deprived you are this is totally understandable. I've gone to bed one place and woken up somewhere completely different (usually a move from couch to bed) with no memory of the inbetween. I've held full conversations with people that i have no recollection of because i was awoken at a bad moment and fell back asleep before becoming consciously aware. having a strange animal that you're not used to wake you up its not unreasonable to think removing it is a good idea, especially if you're not awake. Granted if a cat is friendly enough to be licking me I'd likely put it on the floor and go back to sleep and worry about it when i got up (I'm a cat person, and i've taken in many abandoned strays that were human friendly over the years)
You're a cat person but you'd immediately put a cat that's obviously a pet outside? Feral cats won't even let you near them, strays would be thin and their fur wouldn't be as nice as a pets. As a pet owner, I'd try to find an owner because I'd certainly hope someone would do the same for my pet.
Like they've said above, it's easy to be confused when you're very tired. I got 2 hours of sleep last night and when I got up I didn't remember my alarm going off or letting my dogs outside. I finally realized I was awake when I was sitting on the toilet peeing. I don't remember waking to the bathroom. it happens
It's not time to panic yet. The cat will probably be fine and come back when she gets hungry. Put food out for her and she'll be more likely to return to your door. My only concern is that if you're at your place and not your sister's, she may try to find her own home instead of coming back to yours. If she's not back by tomorrow you ought to look around your sister's home. In any case, call your local animal shelters and give them a description of the missing cat. Hopefully your sister had the good sense to get the cat microchipped.
How often do cats appear in your house that you would automatically throw it outside and then head back to sleep? You completely deserve it, but your poor sister sure doesn't nor does her kitty. If she loses her pet because you're a moron, "introublenow" is putting it mildly. Find the cat, jackass.
