Question Where did my oil go?

I bought my car brand new October 2010. So far I put about 10,000 miles on it, mostly highway. I drive pretty hard most of the time and I have done a few 'spirited' drives.

Well, I get the warning yesterday for low oil, add +1 quart. I bought some Castrol 5w30 Full Synthetic and filled it up. Drove it around, parked, checked the oil again and it was right on the money. So, my question is: where did that whole quart of oil go???

My other question is whether or not an oil catch can would help this issue or at least allow the oil to go somewhere other than where I don't want it? Does anyone sell an oil catch can yet for the N55?
