This is NOT a good day...

we are one cat down! Pumpkin went out about 8pm last night and hasn't come home! Both the Rumpies are normally in and cuddled up for the night then, and very rarely go out that late, and if they do it is for a few minutes. It was horrible going to bed last night knowing that she wasn't in. Archie doesn't seem to have noticed, but Maddie is completely out of sorts and subdued. We (Mad and me) have leafleted the neighbours, I have called all the vets, and the local resuce place. The good thing is that there doesn't appear to be anything nasty that has happened on the streets around the area, but there is no sign of her.
The night before she went out late and came back late without her collar, but she seemed ok otherwise...she came in, settled down and life went on as normal. When I was gardening yesterday I kept an eye out for her collar but there was no sign in the garden or on the road near the house..then this morning as Mad and I were walking the street and calling her, I found her collar on the road in front of the house, but her name tag and bell are missing! Oh, I am beside myself, DD and DH are back Friday morning and I really hope that Pumpkin is back by then. One of the Rumps was spotted in a field some way away, but the neighbour who spotted her said she was wearing a collar, but I will go and leaflet that street too.
Please keep your fingers crossed, and send vibes that she comes home soon - DD has bought her a new collar from her holidays and is looking forward to getting home and putting it on her...I am such a bad cat-mum :(

You're certainly not a bad cat-mum
Everything crossed and praying xx

Don't feel bad, this stuff happens. Squeaky escaped once pushing her way thru a screen window once. I couldn't sleep all night!

Pumpkin will return!

I'm not sure where you are in Stratford, I'm on the edge of Old Town. Lots of cats have disappeared here in the last couple of years. Sorry, I know that doesn't help you. What does your cat look like. I will look out for her. She is probably shut in someone's garage or shed.
