Our cat is missing. She is an indoor cat and we think she may have left to die. Normally she doesn't go outside unless we leave the garage door open. Her litter box is in the garage so she goes there often. Many times we would find her just outside and she would run back in when she saw us. Last night we left the door open longer than usual and then we closed it after dark. We didn't notice. This morning we realized that she wasn't in the house and started to worry. Then we had to tell the kids that she may have left to die. There were tears....many tears... She was a good cat. We adopted her from the pound April 2006. She was already an adult and declawed. It took her awhile to get used to us but eventually she did and she actually started to like us.
This is the first time that my kids have had to deal with grief so close to home. I am praying for peace for them and me.
My boys want another cat. I don't know if I am ready to train another cat. Our house is lonely without her.
