Things have been rather sad around here the last couple of days. My sweet kitty Mazie Grace is missing. I last saw her around supper time on Monday, sleeping in the Norfolk Island Pine pot on the deck. Usually she sits on the deck railing in the morning and meows to be fed. I didn't see her Tuesday morning. I had an appointment in Richmond for my mammogram, so I was gone until mid afternoon. When I got home, I looked for her and called her, but there was no sign of her. She didn't show up this morning either. I've walked over all the roads, checking the ditches in case she was hit by a car. I've gone in the fields behind the house calling her. I keep checking outside, hoping she has come home, But there is no Mazie Grace. She has never been gone this long before, so I'm really worried about her.
I'm afraid either a bobcat or a coyote has gotten her. We have both around here and they have been known to catch cats. I haven't given up hope, but it doesn't look like she will be back.
