Do Your Pets Try to Sneak Into Small Spaces?

I was totally pulling for lil Jeter here 'cause he was so close yet so far away . . . from whatever caught his interest in that hole! He definitely showed some determination, do your pets ever think their bodies can fit into spots we can see that they can't? Or better yet have your eyes ever been deceived by your lil Houdini's success?

When I first got my cat Casey (she is now 9 yrs & 12 Lbs) I lost her for about a day. I turned over the couch, the bed... everything. One of my friends was over helping me look for her, and he spotted her climbing out from underneath the baseboard of the cabinets. The opening was maybe 1" x 2". I then plugged up the hole so she couldn't get in there any more. She still loves to get into small spaces especially under the dresser, it only has a 2" opening on the bottom. She flattens herself on her belly and slides underneath.

That video is too cute. My Boston doesn't try to fit into small spaces and it would never even cross her mind to try (she gets confused when something is even partially blocking her way). My Chihuahua on the other hand was the master of escape.

What is it with big dogs? Like clumsymelissa I have a giant breed, and he has no concept of where he'll fit. Funniest was when he tried to get under a wicker chair, got stuck and ended up with it on his back-another wish I had my camera moment!!!

When we first brought Auggie home, he fell asleep on his bed in the living room and my hubby and I thought it would be a good time to sneak out of the room and get some breakfast. Well he never made a noise and when we went back in the room but 5 min later he was no where to be seen. We started calling his name and running around the house looking for him. Mind you he couldn't walk up the stairs yet! We we eventually heard him whimpering and found him wedged between the wall and our end table (about 3in of space available to him) He couldn't get out and we couldn't get to him and had to VERY carefully move the table to free him!! (After we took a pic of course!!) so yes he LOVES small spaces!! My other one not so much

My male great Dane does this! If his nose can make it, he thinks the rest of him can too. We just moved into a new apartment, and his new favorite place to sit is in the bathroom, under the sink where my vanity chair should go. It's so cute! Just like this ending. I love the sprawled butt look!

When mine was a puppy, she snuck under the recliner my mom was leaning forward in to get away from my bf (she really did not like men when we first got her - still isn't sure about my fiance).

Back when my cat was a little younger, he used to fit in the weirdest places. Now he's too lazy to get off my bed!

The ending of that video is PRICELESS! :) Oliver doesn't do this, fortunately. I think he has a pretty good sense of his massive girth!

Oh man, it always amazes me at the tiny spaces they can get in & out of. My mom's Chihuahua-mix kept jumping over the pen we had set up for him in her backyard, so we put a 30lb mirror on top of it to keep it closed off, but so that he could still have a place to play outside while we were doing other things. There was a space about 4 inches wide at the top where the mirror wouldn't fit, and it was next to the wall, so we have no idea how, but he still managed to get out. Mind you, he's not a small Chi, either, he's about 7lbs. It baffled us. Good thing the neighbors got him before he could get any further.

my little Bailey can squeeze through fences! I have a solid fence, but it is a nightmare at my parents house! (she is always wanting to go swimming!)
