Cat Napped?

What She Wore: Super-old t-shirt from Harry’ T’s; navy blue shorts; tennis shoes.

What She Ate: I’m back to the Lean Cuisine and soup regimen. For lunch, chicken noodle. For dinner I’m having ravioli.

Ok. It’s been two weeks since my cat disappeared and I’m pretty sure he’s not coming back. I’d like to share a few details, though.

Max is a wonderful cat–he’s very friendly, loves to be petted, and lets you pick him up.

Max is a very good looking cat. There’s something a little exotic about his face–the vets always comment on it.

A woman called me the day I put up my missing cat sign and told me that she had a gray cat in her backyard. I told her that I couldn’t come that minute because I was an hour away and getting ready to eat lunch, but I would call her when I was back in the area. She told me she lived at the end of _______ street, which is only one block away.

Later, I called the woman and she wouldn’t answer her phone.

I haven’t spoken to her since.

Max is not at the humane society, and I’ve gotten no other calls about a gray cat.

I’ve seen no dead cats that look like Max and I see cats everywhere in my neighborhood, so I don’t think there’s a cat predator lurking in the bushes. Most of my neighbors let their cats roam free without incident.

I drove to the end of ______ street and there is a house with FOUR cat figurines in the front yard.

There’s a mail box wrapper with a cat on it too.

Could Max have been cat-napped?

Could he be living blissfully with the cat lady, eating wet food and getting his ears scratched?

I think it’s a distinct possibility.

    Well, if it’s between that or lost somewhere, I guess cat napped is the best choice. Still, kinda creepy… Hopefully he has some kind of inner compass and will find his way back to you either way.

    I think your on the right track. Something is weird there. Maybe you should put the fear of God into her and send the cops over to her house for (maybe)harboring your cat.

    That would be awful if she was keeping him as her own when she knows you’re looking for him! But also, why wouldn’t she answer her phone or get back to you ever? Definitely weird.

    i am sure that he is ok where ever he may be….and i am sure he misses you too…

    ♥~♥ :oD most smiles are started by another smile… :oD ♥~♥

  5. Well, at least if eh creepy cat lady’s got him, he’s probably in cat paradise. 😉

  6. Ya that’s very strange, too bad you can’t really do anything to find out if Max in in there…if he is he’s probably just plotting his escape so he can go back home to you :)

    So…has Justin called you yet for his tour around town?? haha! Tim is ALWAYS calling me asking for things 😉

  7. Might be time for a little recon-mission…I think that lady straight up stole your cat.

  8. but he’s YOUR cat…I’d keep calling her and calling her, and calling her…
