I just wanted to update with great news! My cat came back around four in the morning, after having been gone for 10 days. Thank god, he's safe (he's been taken to the vet for a checkup and everything looks good) albeit a little skinnier.
I want to thank everyone for their prayers and kind thoughts that you sent my way. It's amazing what the power of prayers can do.
Karyn, thank you so much for posting this. You've proven my belief about the innate kindness and goodness of people. Thank you for taking the time out to give my situation a bit of attention. You are truly an awesome person.
Oh, so sweet! Thank you! And yay for Fat Cat!
