I go to my folk’s house almost daily to see their two cats. Some people think I use the cats as an excuse to see my parents, and as much as I love my parents, those people are wrong. I go to their house way before they even wake up just to see my four-legged buddies. I love them so much!
Today I arrived at my parents house early in the morning, and was surprised to find my mother out of bed in the driveway of their house. Turns out one of the cats, (Brandy), is missing. Since then, we’ve all been doing what we can to find her. We’ve circled the block numerous times calling her name, put up flyers, talked to neighbors, called the police, called the SPCA, put ads out in all our local news papers, and posted on Facebook about it.
The weird thing is, this cat’s been allowed outside, BUT has only ventured further than our back deck a few times, (she knows she isn’t supposed to go off the back deck, and is too scared to do so aside from some rare occasions). She’s never left the yard… she actually hasn’t even come close to leaving the yard. Most of the time she goes out, she comes back inside after 15 minutes because she’s so scared.
She’s almost always monitored when she goes out. She must have snuck out when one of my folks opened the door. It really isn’t like her to venture off. If she was out all night, it’s shocking to me that she wasn’t waiting by the door to be let in by morning time.
Anyway, it’s only been a day… but it really sucks. I’m surprisingly calm right now, but the more time that goes by, the more I worry my little furry friend’s gone for good. I keep thinking about the worst possible things that could have happened to her. She’s such a great cat! I don’t know what I would do if she really was gone, I wasn’t expecting this at all.
Thanks to everyone who read all this. I’m sure some of you have pets of your own, or maybe have experienced something similar.
