Mum bean here, Thomas O'Toole has been AWOL as of 10pm last night. Myself and the husband went to bed as usual at 10pm (I know, we have no life) and soon after we heard the sound of the cat flap going. A sure sign that Thomas had left the building.
When I got up this morning at 07:15 Charlie and Lola were waiting in the kitchen for their breakfast as usual and Thomas usually makes his appearance at around 07:30 - 08:00. No sign.
I know Thomas has several other houses that he frequents when he doesn't like what is on the menu at home and I am hoping he's camping out at one to punish me for giving him his flea tablet yesterday, but it is unusual for Thomas not to make an appearance at some point during the day, even if it's just to greet the dog. He is microchipped and has a collar and tag with all our details on.
I have called and called, walked the streets and rattled the cat biscuit box. Nothing. I am holding off calling the local vets and animal shelters as he hasn't really been missing that long in cat terms and I suppose also in the vain hope that if I don't and I stop worrying and panicking, he'll come strolling through the cat flap as if nothings a miss.
Please, please can we have some prayers and puurrs that Thomas comes home safe and sound or is simply shut in somewhere.
Thank you xxx
