Agony

Thanks so much to you all for your well wishes.

While my back has recovered, our male cat, Borage, went missing last night and we hardly slept, couldn't eat and I feel like I've got raw potato in my stomach.

It is completely out of character for him, as he is rather timid and loves his food so he comes home lots. He's inquisitive and likes to play and is comical and affectionate. Last night was one of the coldest this winter...

Don't feel at all like writing...

Can't concentrate on anything...

I'll be back blogging properly soon, I hope.
Our minds imagine all sorts of horrors and scenarios and then we try to tell ourselves he'll be fine. He'll be home soon. And then...

Hoorah he's been found. The neighbour who told us they hadn't been in their garage all day yesterday then found that actually he was in their garage sitting on a pile of cloths on a shelf.  "Sorry they forgot they had been in there, once, in the afternoon"


It's one way to get me to exercise. I haven't walked so much in ages (all around the neighbourhood).

One thing, though, it did give me food for thought for a creepy thriller story...

  5. I really hope he comes home soon. I can imagine how you're feeling and how hard it is to concentrate on anything else.

  6. What a worry! Especially when you're feeling a bit under par. I know that potato feeling - Hope he returns soon, full of his adventure :-)
    All best

  14. I'm so happy you found him! What a relief! That kind of thing is no fun to go through-- even if it does give you good story thoughts. :)

  15. PHEW, I am so glad you found kitty! I was worried there'd be a sad ending :( I've got two kitties myself and right now it's really hot, so I worry about them overheating during the days.
