The Woman got up this morning and Gemini didn’t come for breakfast. They searched the house but no little puffy cat. They have looked EVERYWHERE. The human male even lifted the heavy lid of the cedar chest (lest Gemini have taken up weight lifting and decided to close herself in).
At any rate, they found that something had eaten through the screen from the outside. We suspect the little dogs who were staying at the house because several times they were left in the yard. They didn’t notice it. We think that when the screen was on and the glass was opened in the middle of the night, Gemini went out and couldn’t get back in. Now we can’t find her.
Send good thoughts and prayers that she comes out. She is VERY timid and loves to hide. She pretty much only goes to the woman. The woman is just sick with worry. She has always always had only indoor cats and of all of us, Gemini is the least equipped to deal with outside.
UPDATE: This afternoon, still no sign of her.Â She usually moves around more in the later evening and early morning times around the house.Â We will have more food out (the Male went around with the can earlier) and see if she comes by. We’ve been in every backyard of people who are home and now know where all the dogs are. Â There is some watershed areas around here that aren’t far and that could seem like a great hiding place for her too.Â There is construction on our block and it is our fear that with all that noise (and she may have knocked the screen door out trying to get back in) that this may have scared her farther away than most cats go. Also we do have raccoons in the area and coyotes, so that worries us a lot!
