Last night I dreamt we entered one of the many vacant houses nearby and found Lucy just sitting there staring at us. Alas, in waking life she remains missing. We finally put up flyers and talked to neighbors today. Some guys who appear to be squatting on the 200 block of North Gayoso said they saw a cat last night and again this morning who matches Lucy’s description, collar and all. The back yard where they saw her is practically across the street from our house, so it seems plausible. There’s also a skinny black stray with no collar running around here, so we take any sighting with a grain of salt.

Strangely enough, an extra large tabby tom cat has appeared on the scene and wangled his way into our household. I hope he likes to hunt mice, because I just saw one run behind our stove.

  1. Glad to hear she’s at least been sighted – that’s a good sign. Maybe you guys should go spray your pee over where she was spotted?

    Just came across an incredible multi-chapter story of what happened at Charity and Tulane, it’s well worth a read, but do it when you’ve got a little time and emotional energy.

    Hope your next post is that you’ve found the kitty… and hope the new tabby starts catching those mice!

  2. Come back, black kitty! We promise a human sacrifice. (Work with me here.)

    Where did you and Xy find the spiked kitty collars? I know two kitties who would look oh-so-righteous in them.
