The Cat Came Back

. . .but it wasn’t the very next day.

Two weeks and five days after his mysterious disappearance, Max appeared in my mother-in-law’s backyard. She lives a little less than two miles away from us.

He got a pretty ugly gash on his side and he’s really skinny. Other than that, he seems fine.

What has he been up to for the last three weeks?

    Welcome home Max! Whenever my cats would disappear and then return home in a similar condition my father would always comment that they had been out “tom catting”. At least Max is finally home safe!

    So glad he’s back!
    Maybe that was what Charlie was praying for?
    Has Max been to your mother’s before?
    The wound looks like it’s been healing. It looks old.
    And we can call off the hit on the neighbor lady with all the cats…or do you think she got scared and kicked him out in fear???
    Woo Hoo!! Max is back!!!

  14. You guys are so great. I had no idea so many people were worried about my cat. I felt silly being so upset, but what can you do? I’m thrilled that he’s back.
