THANK you EVERYone...Synnie is home. Thank you Donna, thank you Zoe!!!!!!!
He is exhausted, tired and thirsty...his nose is a crusty and dry, and he has a gash below his ear. But he is HOME!! He isn't acting like himself but I'm sure it's just the stress of what he went through.
I slept on the floor of the livingroom last night with the front door open and the kibble by my pillow. I spent the wee hours of the morning just staring down our front hallway 'willing' him home. When he wasn't home by 6am, I was beginning to have doubts.
Then I got a call from my very dear friend, who offered to come right over and help me look. We walked up and down the street with a can of tuna, a plate of tuna, two bags of treats and a fork. We picked up a cute orange friend along the way, but no Syn Syn...
Donna asked if I had checked the back yard. Well I had called and called and called last night and did my best to search with a flashlight, but I hadn't been back yet this morning.
I live in a 3 story old Victorian and the middle level back deck is where the recycling + trash for the whole building is located. Donna pulled back one of the 8 giant trash bins and saw a fluff of grey!!! Then I heard him...tiny strained mewwww. I have never cried so hard in utter relief and happiness. I stuffed my face in his soft furr and hugged him hard and then hugged Donna as I sobbed harder.
So we are both exhausted but happy, home and together. He had two scary nights out on his own, I am hoping that was enough to take the 'excitement' out of the great outdoors.
I know I must have seemed like a crazy person. But my furry children are just that, my children. And they don't have Amber Alerts for cats yet.
THANK YOU for putting up with my one million multi-media posts!!
LOVE YOU PUMA! :)
