Her cat has been missing for years, but she hasn't given up. I hope someday he comes home

Ohhh, I feel so bad for her I'm glad she hasn't given up hope, but unfortunetly I really don't think her cats coming home.

I hope that kitty is ok. But I agree that he is coming home.

I hope she finds him. I understand because I have lost a cat too and it was devastating to me. Maybe she will get some good news one day, she certainly has put forth the effort.

The only thing if he always came back before? If he was an indoor/outdoor cat that always came back, then unfortunately for her I don't think he's ever coming home

Hopefully at some point she will let go. I understand her concern and that the mystery will always be there, but I just hate to see people live like that. You just want to :hug: them and tell them everything will be alright.

That is so heart-breaking!! I really do hope she finds him someday. I'm going to go home and hug Roxie extra tight today!

According to the article, they had just moved there and that was his first time outside there. He got spooked by a passing car.

Mugoddai stayed with her through several moves, from Guam to Arlington County and eventually to Takoma Park in 2003. On Dec. 11, after keeping him indoors for their first two weeks in a basement apartment near Sligo Creek, she took Mugoddai out for a test walk in the yard.

"He was right next to me," she said. "Some traffic went by and spooked him. He ran to the back yard. I haven't seen him since."
The poor woman...I hope the kitty is safe, somewhere.

This is INTERESTING.. I live kinda close to where she lost the cat and I HAVE seen a black cat nearby in the woods. I tried to approach the cat but it ran off. I'll call and see .. I don't want to get her hopes up but at the same time what if it's that cat??

Its definitely worth trying! I don't think it would be "getting her hopes up" because it seems she is thankful for every lead, whether it works out or not.

I admire this woman. I dont know if I would have her dedication, but I hope that somehow she gets her cat back. Maybe he went more than 5 miles from her home and someone adopted a "stray" cat who was abnormally friendly...who knows....
