Calli, Has he returned yet? I know how hard it is. I'm sorry you have to go through this but we're here with you. I've made my DS get up in the middle of the night before to get my kitty of the roof after said DS had let kitty out accidently!! Luckily for him we live in a ranch house. I will keep praying for you and your kitty. Dawn T

I'm thinking kitty found a place to sleep for the night. Here's hoping he'll be home in the morning for breakfast.

Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

Well, I found him and got lucky. The gross people across the street moved out and there were workers there yesterday with the doors open because, as my daughter put it, the house smells like rotting old people and smoke. Well, he must have wondered in there because I looked over and saw him in the window. Fortunately the doors weren't locked and the windows were open (breaking and entering would have been an option to free the cat) and he was crying for me at one of the windows. So at 2 this morning, I freed him and tried to get some sleep. A nap on my desk is looking pretty good.

So, he's safe, he's home, and he kind of stinks a little.

What a relief. If either of my two don't come back I go frantic.

They are like short, fuzzy kids. You want to let them go out and play, but you worry when they don't check in.

Thank heavens, Calli. I'm so happy he's home and safe. Bet he'll sleep a lot today.

What a relief!! :)
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

WooHoo, Callisto! If he's anything like my kitty was, he'll be your shadow for weeks. In fact, Milo runs away now when anyone opens the door!

I had a cat (named Katmandu) who actually got into the bed of my truck one evening while I was unloading hay and feed. I didn't know she had climbed in there when I shut it up.I drove down my dirt and hole road to the store, (about 1 1/2 miles away) when I got there I could see her all puffed up and Angry!!!! When I tried to get her out so she could ride back in the cab with me, she bolted out.
3 months later on Christmas Eve, she came home.
Moral of the story, Cats are explorers by nature, Dont give up on them, they will come back.
Life is short.So eat great food!

He's my long hair so he'll be okay weather wise, but I won't sleep until he come home. So stressed
listen, does he come to the sound of the food box shaking his food? my cat used to, that's how I could always get him to come home or inside, I'd shake that food Meow mix box, he's hear it and think it was time to eat.
don't lose hope and walk the neighborhood calling him, if he's stuck up a tree or hiding out or whatever, he'll hear you and come, and take that box of noisey food with you
