Me and my wife adopted a Japanese chin named batman from the shelter. We brought him home yesterday (Tuesday) evening. He was so calm last night and this morning that when I left for work at 11:30 I decided to not put him in the kennel and see how he did for the 5 hours he would be alone. I was extra careful to check and make sure all doors were tightly shut and locked. It's been getting pretty hot here lately so I left a window with a screen open. Batman somehow figured out that the screen wasn't perfectly secure and pushed till it bent open and got out. Less than a day after we got him.

I was totally freaking out, looking everywhere for him, while my wife called the shelter. Thankfully they have him. I feel like such a bad person. I guess it's "kennel up" everytime he's alone.

Hahahaha^^^^ oh i love that story about the cat, can't tell you how many I have about my burmese who seems go missing every time we move. One night he actually got out when it was raining once and the next door neighbours had dug up all the sewerage pipes in their yard, i was looking for hours, and then he comes running up to the porch covered head to tail in mud. And he looked at me like im home now mum dinner time!
OP don't feel bad :) its part of the hole process! All the stress and fussing over your new baby will go away eventually! I know I fussed over my dog for aaaaages when she first came home. It's a funny story you can all remember later on.
