Did cats really disappear from North America for 7 million years?

Domestic cats sometimes disappear for days at a time before, generally speaking, turning up safe and sound. But this relatively short vanishing act is nothing compared with the “cat gap” — a period in the fossil record from approximately 25 million to 18.5 million years ago when cats and cat-like species seem to have “disappeared” from North America for almost 7 million years.

So, what is the reason for this gap? Is it just another example of the baffling behavior of catssuch as their penchant for sitting in boxes gold running around in random bursts of speed without the slightest provocation? Did they grow tired of North America? Could it all be a misunderstanding?
