My cat Fizzgig got out Friday night. Familiar name? Yes, because I'm nuts about that girl! It's now Monday and I have no idea where she is.
To say this is devastating to me is an understatement, because if she were a human child I would be taken more seriously. To me, she is my baby. She's been my baby for 10 years.

I have been all over my neighborhood on foot, and in car. Calling her. All over the woods. Calling her. I left food out untouched. I put flyers up. The manfriend came over Saturday and helped me look. He made me a new flyer, we made copies at Kinko's, and put more out. He put an ad on craigslist for me, and is offering a reward for her.

He even downloaded a high frequency noise that my other cats were interested in onto his Iphone to try to attract her. I left my garage open for her. Nothing. Tirelessly calling.

It feels like a break up because even sad songs make me cry. The manfriend held me and let me cry. He didn't judge me or tell me "it's just a cat". He got mad if someone didn't let me put a sign in the store. I feel like he is on "my side" and for once in my life that feels fantastic. He didn't tell me to snap out of it when I would tear up every other minute. Or didn't laugh all day.

Instead he would ask me if there was anything he could do, tell me he was sorry, and he wished he could find her for me. He also stayed another night with me cus I couldnt sleep at all Friday, and having him there helped me sleep. He's pretty much the cutest manfriend in the world, and I know that.

So, today I'm really sad. I will be sad until she is home. I have faith that someone has her. She wouldn't stay gone this long. She wouldn't kill a mouse that was in my house for a week. She eats next to my bunny on occasion, and wants to be friends with cats that hiss. I have never heard her hiss in 10 years. She is the sweetest cat. I have a connection with her, and it breaks my heart that she is gone. I am placing ads in the papers ($40 a week?!)And calling shelters and the police station today. Send me positive thoughts. I need them.

Repeat this for me out loud if you would. "Fizzgig is going home!"

I am so sorry... I am sure she will be back!

Aw, man :-( I'll bet you're right, that somebody has her and is taking care of her, and she is having a wonderful adventure, and will be home soon. I just wish she had a camera, so she could show you where she's been!

Amy said...

Oh no, I'm so sorry! I hope you find her soon. She's adorable!

I am so sorry!!! I hope you find her very very soon, or that she finds her way home very very soon! I so understand the connection! I have grown so close to my little kitties in just a few months! I really can relate! In all that mess I am happy the manfriend has been there for you...

Oh, goodness, Fizz. I will repeat "Fizzgig is going home!" 50 times everyday! I bet you are right and someone has her not knowing where to take her. I hope you get her back before I finish typing! I totally understand about loving a little animal. Take care of yourself and kind thoughts are coming your way.

Someone will see a flyer and bring your cat home to you. Go home, kitty. :(

sazza said...

I totally empathise with you, I too would be distraught. I really hope kitty is returned to you within the next couple of days.

ms megan:
Thank you =(

that's what i am visualizing!

She is a cutie, thats what increases her chances of being catnapped. Ugh

I believe all the positive thoughts on her behalf will work!

thank you!

I appreciate it! Keep them coming!

he probably could be a pretty good jack bauer....he has lots of gadgets, he fixed my xmas tree with a nail file.

good thing about the country, probably didnt get hit by a car, but tons of places to hide =(

no kitty =( its heartbreaking!

thank you!!!!
