(((Hugs Skittle))) I hope your kitty turns up soon. Mine went missing for 24 hours and I was frantic, but he is an indoor cat.

Golly was raised as an indoor/outdoor farm cat. He's not even litter box trained. If you try to put him in the box he splays his legs out and catches them on the rim because he hates it. If you lock him in thinking he will use it when he's desperate he will pee in your laundry. He always had a bell hanging on the door knob to let us know when he wanted out. Now he has a cat door. Since he can go in and out as much as he likes he doesn't usually go too far from the yard. I hope he's ok :( if he isn't locked in some do-gooder's house, he was out in the cold rain last night. I feel so bad for him. At least he is a good hunter.

Skittle, since you are in a new house, have you checked the area in your old house. A lot of pets, when they get lost, try to return to their old home. You have heard the stories of pets that travel hundreds of miles to find their master.

I hope he shows up real soon for you. I know it is a heartbreaking time for you.

Thanks, but old home is a 3 hr drive away :( I sure hope he doesn't try to go home!

My next door neighbor saw a big orange cat with a white face in his yard this morning... Said it looked just like the cat in my posters. But if it was him, why didn't he stick around??? I wish my kitty would come home...

Oh Skittle, I sure hope he comes home soon. Maybe he doesn't recognize your house yet.

I was wondering that too. Cats don't handle change well.
