Yeah, I know that behaviour. dEUS does it most. When his breeders brought him and Flynn they left them on top of the big cat tree, and the first days he kept climbing up there and crying for us to come to him. It was cute but a bit unpractical. I had heard his breeder call the kittens and I imitated her inflection so when he started calling for us I would call him and he would come "find" us.
There was this one time in october when we did a cat show abroad, we stayed overnight with my aunt because she lives closer to the border. I was in bed and dEUS was walking around exploring the house, every so often he would realize he'd lost me in the strange house and start calling for me (dEUS is almost two but still has a voice like a kitten, very cute and kinda silly
), I'd call back, a short time later he'd find me, jump on the bed, lick my face and snuggle up under the covers, and after some time he'd be off exploring again, until he realized he'd lost me again, LOL.
