|Blue and Weazy|
|The great escape!|
I've been keeping them in the "Foster Room" with supervised outings into the rest of the house. They really enjoy exploring and playing, but for the most part stick right by my side. On Friday night we had a big sleepover - me, Cam, Slim, Stan, Weazy and Blue all watched Wayward Pines (the cats seriously watched the whole thing) and I decided not to put them back in their room. Saturday was Independance Day and I was excited for my three day weekend so I woke up at 5am, let the chickens out, opened the blinds and kitchen window, gave Slim his pill, made coffee and went back to lay down and read. Around 8am Cam asks where Weazy is but I figured he was sleeping somewhere. Next thing you know it's 10am and I'm walking around the neighborhood hanging "Lost Cat!" signs and talking to every neighbor I see. I looked EVERYWHERE. I thought (was hoping!) I was being dramatic and that he was still hiding in the house. The only way he could've escaped was the kitchen window that was only open 3 inches (I measured it!) and didn't think he could have even if he wanted to get out. But I was wrong :(
|not my cat!|
We contemplated not taking our road trip, but we had done everything we could and staying at home wasn't going to help anything so we left. Cell reception was spotty driving through the forest, but at one point I looked down at my phone and saw a text: "i think i found your cat..."! I couldn't believe it! And I couldn't call or text back because we were in the middle of nowhere! When we hit a small town I gave the number a call and it was my neighbor whom I had met the day before while she was looking for a friends dog who had gotten out! And she's a pet sitter for a living. She had heard meowing on the side of her house, and it was him! I got her in touch with my dad and she reunited Weazy with the farm. I am so happy and grateful that he found his way home. This poor guy has had a rough start in his life, and I want to make sure he is safe, comfortable and loved. No more windows open around here! So what if it's 100 degrees!
|He loves me.|
|He gives hugs and PURRRRRS!|
|When I first got him he had a bad kitty cold.|
