Relief

He came home.

I was locking up the house last night and turning off lights when I heard a strange noise at the front door. I opened it to have a look and there is was.

Very skinny, very dirty and with a very rusty sounding meow. When I patted him, I could feel his spine through his fur, and all his body fat has gone. The poor thing was starving.

He has eaten several meals and has been OK, but we are going to the vet tomorrow to have him checked out. He is due for his vaccination too so I'll have that done at the same time.

My brother was the funniest. I knocked on his door for about 20 minutes last night, and all I got out of him was that yeah, yeah, George is home, but I'm asleep. I'm so glad I got to see his face this morning when he saw George for the first time - he was so happy.

I'm so relieved. I really missed him. He is lying across my chest and stomach as I type this.

I'm sooooo happy for you! This incident reminds me of a friend whose little poodle dog disappeared during a storm. It was gone for a month! The local mail carrier discovered it one day and brought it home...diry, flea ridden, and limping. But Sandy is alive and well a whole year later!!

Take care...

Yay!!! I'm so glad that your kitty came home safe and sound, albeit a wee bit thinner. I'm sure that he's as glad to be back as you are to have him back. :-)

So glad your kitty is home and safe. Cats get a bad rap sometimes, but to me they're awfully cuddly.

I've stopped worrying myself when our cat disappears. I know she'll always come back for the food.

This will not have effect as a matter of fact, that's what I suppose.
