Hubby and I were discussing this at dinner and it has been ages since we have seen Callie. She is a muted tortie- out of Funny Face's litter. Usually if I go back by the creek and do my kitty call, she will surface in the next couple of days...I call loudly! But I have been calling her for about a week now, and no callie. About four months ago when I went into town, I saw a cat hit on the road. When I stopped to check, the cat looked exactly like Cal- same markings, manx tail, the whole thing! I screamed my rage to God, bundled her up, and that night Mike and I buried her among many tears. The next evening who shows up alive and well? But Calgirl!!! We were stunned! She hung around for several days and then vanished. Now, she is truly gone I fear. It is not like her to be gone this long of a time...Say a prayer please that if she is still alive, she finds her way home. She is missed a lot. I don't know who belonged to the first manx I saw on the road, maybe it was her sister or her twin, or maybe God was just preparing us for what is to come. I just miss seeing her in the hay or popping out of the horse feeder at night.
