Mom has a screened in deck
also. Lily thinks that is great with
the beautiful days we have had
the last four days.
Like at home, I keep the screen
closed and latched.
Since it was so pretty last night
I kept the door going to the deck
propped open so Lily could
come and go.
The dogs were on the other side of
the screen, outside.
I saw Lily run to the back room
where the little box is at that point
I decided to go let the dogs in and
close up the deck.
I also propped the screen door
open so the dogs could go straight
out later on. I did not realize that
Lily had come back out.
An hour later, starting to bed I
realized that she was not in the house.
I called, I balled, I cried, I searched...
On top of the day I had I just knew
she was gone. I got Dakota out of
the fenced yard to sniff for her.
I got the flash light and went all around
the house and some of the neighbors
yards....calling for her the whole
Finally I put the dogs up and the dog
up the street that kept barking must
have went in. While I sat on the deck
crying I would call out to her.
Finally around 9pm I heard a
slight meow. I came off the deck and
called again, once again I heard a meow.
I kept this up till I was across the
street and then I found her.
Scared she was in the corner of
the window seal of the house there.
I was so happy.
I grabbed her and loved and kissed
on her all the way home. I know
she was glad I found her cause
she did not fight to get out
of my arms.
She was so glad that she came
and got in bed with me and three
dogs. She was tired.
By the time I found her, she had
been missing for about if not
longer than two hours.
My heart was so happy.
I was able to sleep knowing
she was with me and the other
I could not stand the thought of life
without her. She brings laughs
to my life but I could not stand the
thoughts of her outside over night
This morning first thing she went
to the vets where my daughter works.
She is now a registered chipped cat.
I am also purchasing an orange collar
for her. I learned tonight that orange
means "convict" as in ~
So if you see a cat with an orange
collar, grab it up, it is an indoor cat
that is not allowed outside.
She will also be wearing her name and
my number on that break away collar.
Precautions....but NEVER will she not
be hunted for again before I open
that screen door. If she is out there
and the dogs need in or out, she
will be picked up and held while that
door is opened.
My heart can't take things like that
Hug your furbabes and
take precautions to keep
