Edit: Kamiko is now home… she had been missing for about 7 hours, which, like I said, might not seem like a lot to most… but she is like a child to me, and it was stressful. I am just so glad she is back.
My cat is missing. I know to some people, it might not mean very much or be very significant, but my cat is really all I have. Living out here in the middle of nowhere, she keeps me company and gives me something to look forward to coming home to. I let her out for her afternoon sunbake (foolish of me, perhaps), and for some reason today she disappeared. I haven’t seen her for hours. She missed dinner, and she is really a very timid sort of cat (scared of strangers, scared of cars) which makes me think something might have happened to her.
I keep imagining I hear her meows, and every little noise makes me think that she has come home. I drove around the neighbourhood but couldn’t see her, I looked around the houses here and she wasn’t there. The house feels empty without her, and I can’t even go to bed without her sleeping on the pillow next to me.
Please come home Kamiko. I miss you.
