Right, so.
It’s now a little after 7am Sowff Effrikuh time and I have had just under two hours sleep.
My last post was at about 1am this morning.
I have my annual performance appraisal this afternoon at 4pm.
I wonder if I can take the morning off to sleep… then again, if I go home I won’t sleep because my precious Taxi cat has vanished!
He wasn’t himself again yesterday, some may remember I took him to the vet a couple of weeks ago ‘coz he was off colour… well, yesterday the same thing. So I made up my mind to take him to the vet today after work.
So, whilst playing on the interweb at about 1am, I hear Taxi jump off the couch and head for the toilet where their litterbox is.
Now usually he sleeps on my chest, or on my back, or on my ribs- basically somewhere on my upper body- when I go to bed. Its unusual when he doesn’t… so when I heard him use the litterbox I thought I’d give him some time and go fetch him to sleep with me.
So I go looking for him and I can’t find him.
I looked for him, in my flat, for an hour!
My cats don’t go outside- I’m on the second floor so there’s no way in or out for them… Taxi and Greebo both have gotten out a few times, but they’re always more than happy to get home and they’re never gone very long… But I can’t find Taxi. I don’t know why he would have gone “out” and for the life of me I cannot work out how since I keep my windows open jut wide enough for a nose and some fresh air… And my flat is in an old building so its nice and big, but searching for an hour!!?!? So then I went outside. Searching for a big black cat, in the dark, at 2h30.
I couldn’t find him bunnies.
I went again this morning quickly, but I had to get Damien to his lift for school and I had to get to work… and my cat is missing.
He’s tagged and microchipped and he has a collar on, but thats little consolation to me now.
My cat is missing, I’ve had about 2 hours sleep and I have my performance appraisal this afternoon.
Oh God please let me find my cat… or let someone find him for me.

    Poor baby! I duvs kitties! WHY GOD WHY?!??!?!? All I can say is… just let everyone know!

    This reminds me of another blog post of someone who was moving. There were three cats locked in a room in the new house.
    ` Then later, the door was opened and there were only two cats, staring at the ceiling. Like WTF? The other cat went through the ceiling?

    Hey Angel,

    All will turn out all right.

    He’s probably at a F1 enthusiast cat convention, giving the Sauber cats what for.
