My cat ran away from home....2.5 days ago....
He's never darted for the door before. He'll skulk around it, peeking but doesn't dart unless I say, Ok, go ahead and that's only been twice. He'll smell the grass and then lay under our table there while dd1 and I play with chalk or something. It's a small enclosed area.
But somehow, without me seeing, he slipped out....I don't even know when it happened just that it happened 2.5 days ago as of 1pm today.
He'll come home right???
I am kicking myself in the head for taking off his collar the other day bc he was scratching at it and I forgot to put it back on bc he never goes outside..
I have looked in things, under things, behind things, around things.......shook his catnip, his toy lion, his treats.....no kitty.
I feel awful that I didn't even know he was missing until Dh asked about him a few hours ago......just been sooo stressed....we're moving, my mom is ill, nothing is packed......dd 1 has decided listening is for the birds, the baby is teething, mama is burned out......and so overwhelmed and now my kitty is missing.
And Dh grew up with outdoor farm cats so he's like whatever. he got out, maybe he'll come home, maybe he won't....it happens. and I'm like upset and crying and he's just so nonchalant.....saying he's just looking at reality....I don't care about that right now, I just want my cat back.
It was a gift to me from him when I was pregnant with dd1 so I would have someone to keep me company while I was at home on bedrest bc of the HG....my first kitten ever and now he's missing out there somewhere.
He's half tabby and half siamese so he's this giant orange tabby cat with a siamese face and luckily, the siamese personality so he's not likely to let someone pick him up. He's a pretty look at me cat but he's sooo warm and soft when he's curled next to you when you are nursing your baby....
We have set out some of his food, a container with some catnip (a container with a lid that we've slit a bunch of times), his lion he's played with and loved on since he was a kitten......I've thought about setting out sardines or tuna or something but don't really want to attract other animals and then getting false hope that he's come back to eat.
DD1 (4) has just sat at the back door for 2 days waiting for him to come home and crying.....
We're just so sad. We move in a week. Why did he have to pick NOW...
HE'LL COME HOME RIGHT????
