I hate that cats go on ‘adventures’. We’ve ‘lost’ cats to their adventures, and i don’t like it. It’s great to think that they’re being taken care of in another home, but realistically i doubt it.
The only cat that came back after an extended 8 month adventure was Jack, he was our black and white cat that i got as a tip while delivering pizza. He came back in fantastic condition, but then was chased off again by the mean white puffy cat. Who, by the way, belongs to the red house that the other kittens came from.
So, the first to run off was Puffy (aka. P. Diddy, aka. Puff Daddy). He was a giant grey, black and white extra puffy cat and had been shot in the leg. We took him to the vet, everything was going fine, he even had a cast on but the day before his 3rd follow up visit to the vet he ran outside and has not come back. That was 3 years ago.
The next cat missing is Pumpkin. He went out a few months ago and has also not yet returned. What bothers me is that he had not been picked up by the pound, and he had a nasty eye infection that i was treating him for~ so it’s doubtful anyone would take in a ‘gross’ cat!
Here he is with a crocheted turtle:
This is him with an actual snake (all morning i thought it was a toy!)
The snake was one of many critters he brought into the house, including 2 grown birds, a baby bird, and tons of frogs, salamanders, and weird hissing lizards.
here he is asleep in my bookshelf
And my personal favorite pic, his cat fight with Cry Baby:
He didn’t win that one!!
Our last missing kitty is Balto (aka Steve Holt!)
Me and Madaleine noticed he hadn’t come in the window with the others, so i thought he’s just exploring so i left the window open all night for him. He still hasn’t come back
He LOVED sleeping on the couch~ didn’t matter who was on it!
His favorite game was ‘sneak attack’, and that was where he would randomly attack your pants/leg while you were walking by. We had to check around corners for him!!
He was the only cat that didn’t care if the baby kittens were on him or not:
He’s been missing for 3 months. sucks.
