Valerie Goldsworthy, Zeus’ mom, was doing some cleaning when she suddenly realized she hadn’t seen Zeus in quite a while. Normally he likes to follow her around from room to room, but that day, he was strangely absent. Goldsworthy started casually looking around the house for him — but casual soon turned to panic when she realized that Zeus was nowhere to be found.
“I looked in every room, under beds, between boxes in the basement,” Goldsworthy told The Dodo. “I even looked in the wash and dryer (holding my breath he wasn’t in there). I looked under cabinets, I walked up and down the nearby streets, under cars, in neighboring gardens … everywhere. Well, at least I thought.”
Goldsworthy spent three hours searching for Zeus, and was absolutely beside herself when her efforts turned up empty. Defeated, she headed out onto her porch to get a better look at her neighborhood — and that’s when she finally discovered where Zeus had been hiding.
