He disappeared yesterday afternoon. He’d been hanging out on the driveway or the bank on the pine needles, snoozing in the sun. He’d also been eating much better.
I haven’t seen him since. But this morning around 4:30, Spot woke me up growling. I got up, put on my robe, opened the sliding door for the cats to go into the backyard (as I’ve mentioned before, this gives them a chance to do some of the normal “nocturnal” stuff cats do), then grabbed a flashlight and went out front. No Kitty, but definite raccoon pawprints. It had been in the entry way (where there was no food, I’ve been pulling it up before nine every night), got a drink of water, then went onto the lawn, which was dewy and left pawprints on the sidewalk in front of the house.
Seriously, they looked like a child’s footprints. They were that well formed. But I saw no raccoon.
Nor did I see KittyMeezer. I still haven’t seen him.
I’m wondering if he sensed the raccoon was around yesterday and went into hiding on the bank or was he feeling well enough that he went looking for Gilly. He’s that kind of cat, very supportive and caring. I wish we would have brought him in when we got him fixed so long ago, but we didn’t. He would have been a great pet cat, I think.
Anyway, I hope he shows up today. I hate it when he’s not here in the morning.
