I must have been stupid or something, but I didn’t realise the girl was missing even though I’ve been up since 8am.
Somehow I just never noticed.
Maybe it’s because she’s usually napping in some corner during the day, and doesn’t really emerge from her cosy corner until dusk rolls round.
And now that the sun is starting to set, and she’s still not out, then something felt amiss.
I shook her food jar, and I didn’t hear the tinkling that would usually start sounding shortly after. We called out to her, and we didn’t hear any mewing in response. Neither did she appear anywhere.
My brother happened to be here for a visit, so we went downstairs to see if there was any cat corpse lying lifeless on the cement pavement. But nothing.
My mother-in-law called to say that she’ll be bringing round dinner soon, and I just broke down. She said we treated her well, and let’s just see if she would come home in a couple of days.
But it’s not possible, cos she didn’t (and couldn’t) have gone out the gate with the plastic we’re boarded up the gate with.
The only way she could possibly have gone out, would be out the windows at the back. Which means a long way down to a painful death on level 1 from our 10th storey home.
The last time anyone saw her was early last night, when Nash took her out from the bedroom because I was already in bed. Since then, no one has seen her around.
I know she wouldn’t have gone running out, because she ever got lost before when she ran away from home and she got so scared, she never dared to venture further than our neighbour’s home 3 doors down. She likes the auntie who lives there, and the feeling is mutual. Other than that, she never goes anywhere else.
Baby Girl, pleaseeeeeeeeee come back safe and sound.
You’ve only been here since October 2006. It’s not been long enough yet.
No more cutesy kitty behaviour in this house from hereforth. 😦
P.S. Don’t be insensitive pricks and ask where she’s gone to, or how she went missing. There’s a difference between “ran away”, “missing” and “dead”. She’s MISSING. If we knew how or where she’d gone to, we would have found her already.
