Okay, I've gotta do it. I'm going to pull a Wednesday Wobbly. Two wobblies, really, but one is clearly larger than the other.
So first, the big one.
Kat the cat's gone missing.
She went missing on Black Forest Fire Friday - during the time that an ark full of animals were lost, and shelter's and the like were on overdrive. That was two and a half weeks ago. She went out like usual and just never came back. I'd hoped she would show up in a day or so, but it's just not like her to be gone for extended periods of time. Typically she'd just go play outside for a couple of hours at most.
I've been checking the "found cats" page at the local humane society. Meego and I went there on Monday to check out a couple of possibilities, but none were our Kat.
My fear is that a coyote got her. She was an outdoor savvy cat, but the coyotes are pretty stealth and have been quite active lately. *SIGH*
Naturally, we all miss her soft, chubby sweetness.
The second is more of an inconvenience than anything. The key to the Civic has gone missing.
Wolfgang carpools to his job with a couple of friends. He drove on Monday, and on Tuesday, we couldn't find the key anywhere. Magnum has one he keeps on his keychain, and we had a second "community" key that is on a hook in the kitchen. But now it's not.
We literally tore their bedroom apart looking for it. Don't get me started on the state of the bedroom, or we'll be in for a loooooong Wobbly. At least the room is more organized now, but still no key. Wolfgang is about to dig in the trash dumpster as a last resort, just waiting for neighbors to go in so as to not be seen digging through the trash dumpster.
Our policy of you-break-it-you-bought-it applies for lost things too, so he's willing to dig through the trash if it means he doesn't have to fork out cash for a new key.
But we'd all sleep in the dumpster if it brought the cat back.
