He got out last night and has been gone for fifteen or sixteen hours, I think. No sign of him, and now it's pissing rain, and he could be anywhere in the enormous forested drainage area that runs behind our house, that's tangled so thick you can't walk through it.

Just . . . cross your fingers that the little douchebag gets back safe, okay? I really can't do this. I'm strong enough to walk, but I'm not strong enough to carry anything heavy like this right now.

And he's . . . an indoor cat, a dumb one, who doesn't even know what wind and rain are, in an enormous world full of people and things and animals he doesn't know, and might want to hurt him. And I can only hope he's not scared, because that kind of all-pervading, immobilizing fear is something I know way to well to be able to bear the thought of him feeling it with any grace.

I can barely go outside. It reminds me so strongly of how it felt when I had my horrible, horrible hours-long panic attacks, and how everything outside the house was just . . . a fucking nightmare.

Normally I'm really cool-headed, but I am surprisingly, humiliatingly, not fucking coping.

Advice not really appreciated. We're doing what we can do. Just keep your fingers crossed that he comes home very, very soon.

I would not be coping, either. At ALL. Crossing everything he makes it back safe and sound.

I know how it feels to have a beloved idiot kitty go missing. Many years ago my Dummy escaped and I didn't find him until nearly 2 weeks later. He was very thin and dehydrated but so so happy to see me when I found him. He'd somehow gotten into the empty house next door and couldn't get out. I hope your sweet boy comes back soon and I'm sending every positive homecoming juju thought I can into the universe for you. **hugs**

I remember when my baby got out, he was gone all week-end and I was beside myself. Luckily, the giant dumbass was hiding under a neighbor's bushes shaking like a kitten. all 20 lbs of him. I'll keep him and you in my thoughts. He will come home safe and sound.

I hope he turns up with tons of non-scary and entertaining stories of his adventures.

*hugs*

Oh crap. I hope he finds his way home soon.

I've had this scare before and it is just horrible. Hope the bugger finds his way back.

Cats do that. They run off, but then they come back. Hope he comes back soon.

I hope he comes home soon. Are there any local cat rescue groups who might be able to spare a member or two to help you search, if you explain you have physical limitations?

Oh. :( I'm sure he'll be back. Hopefully the weather will clear up soon which should make it easier for him to find his way home/hear anyone who's calling him. If the weather's bad it's likely he's hiding out somewhere sheltered until it gets a bit better. Wish I was closer, I'd come and help you look for the little bugger. I'm sure he'll turn up, though.
I get totally freaking out, though. I freak out if my tubby ginger goes missing for like, an hour, and he was a stray before I got him, so he's probably pretty self sufficient. Thinking of you. xx
