On Sunday 16th June (fathers day) Bo our Tom cat was seen making his way over our fence from my neighbour.  He had not come in by 8pm and I was worried.  Everyone else thought he would be back any minute, but he was a home loving cat, didn't venture too far or for too long.
I walked for miles delivering leaflets from 5am Monday morning,  Made posters for the vets and pet shop.  knocked on doors, I was sure he would be trapped somewhere.  I phoned The RSPCA, Local cat rescue, Cats protection league, both local vets, Put details on the missing pet register online and anywhere and everywhere.

For two days I couldn't sleep or eat and felt physically sick thinking about what may be happening to him.  so close to tears m eyes constantly stang and even my children were concerned about me because I am laid back, I am calm, I don't make a fuss. and I am usually bubbly.
I was quiet, I sat by computer and phone.  I walked until I ended up on pain killers.  I talked to everyone about possibility of them seeing a black and white moggy.  I called police who do not take details anyway so no help there and we all had to just wait and hope.

On Tuesday, I was watching our other cat Callie sitting in the sunshine, in her favorite spot on the bench at the bottom of the garden.  I heard a meow and another and another and headed for the back door to hear my husband  saying Bo Bo where the bloody hell have you been, and as I looked out the door, Bo was sauntering in, meowing the whole time,  his white fur was grey from oil and grease but he was fine (if a little hungry) Callie came running in from the garden, he gave her a swipe to say I am back, behave! and we are all very happy to have him home :)

Glad to be home :)
