I left Simba out on the porch most of the day yesterday and until about 1:00pm today! I had no idea he was out there, poor thing! He was out there all by himself during the terrible thunderstorms--he must have been terrified--and there were tornado watches, too.
After I directed him into the house, he came back out again to be with me, but he was crying the whole time. He didn't complain at all when I picked him up and offered him sympathy, and he usually hates to be held.
