RE: OT: No longer missing cat


Ah, two big dogs in the back yard, I sure hope she doesn't decide to go
back there. While everyone gets along beautifully in the house...I don't
have illusions about what would happen in the open, having lost one of
my cats years ago to my own dogs.
We have not seen her since Wednesday. I tried putting out some of my
clothes as well as sitting outside, but no luck yet. We did catch one of
the local cats in the trap for a second time. I guess I will start
putting a little bit of dry food on the front porch; hopefully she's
still around somewhere. She is so skittish though that I am afraid those
other cats hanging around may have chased her off.

Checked the back door lately?  Wondering with all those other cats
around if
she moved to the back/side/?

It may take some time, but I just know you'll get her back.
