Those whiskers are a scary thought, LOL.
On the phone, however, did anyone ever try to use it? If not, it's possible it might have gotten bumped on to the bed or something. We had that happen & had we not noticed it prior to leaving & dialed it to find it, it would have been well off & into the laundry bins and the wash cycle!!!
Bellamom just had that issue with Bellas stuffed animals at their hotel in Vegas, but they were located with many many calls!!! But a phone wouldn't survive the wash quite as well.
Also check at the lost & found after a day or so, or even after check-out. When I called checking for my camera, Paris
had over 15 cameras left at various places in the hotel. Flamingo
had probably 30+ suitcases, as well as masses of other items. Ballys
had most of their stuff out of view, but they indicated they had over 100 cell phone chargers & the categorized them the best they could, so if I needed one again, to come & see them before I bought one. (I had left mine when I moved from Ballys
- obviously I didn't get mine back, but I got a replacement!!).
