I'm up late tonight. I usually go to bed at 10:00 PM and it is now after 11:00 PM and here I sit at my computer.
I am sad tonight. I think in some of my older posts I mentioned my neighbor's cat Marmalade. He's not our cat, but since the neighbors are gone a lot, he spends a lot of time over at our house. We feel like he is our cat. We even have a place in our garage for him to sleep and have dry food and water when he wants to come in from outside. He's very lovable.
Anyway, he's been missing for 48 hours now and I'm worried that a coyote has gotten him. We always hear coyotes yipping around here early in the morning.
We found a clump of Marmalade's fur in our front yard Friday morning. If it wasn't for that clump, I don't think we'd be so worried about him.
The neighbors are two girls in their 20's. They leave him outside all the time, even when they are gone for several days. Once they were gone for a week and a half. It was the middle of winter, rainy and cold, so we would find him and bring him inside at night with us. He does not have front claws.
My husband and I have driven around looking for him. When we talked to the neighbors that own him about him missing, they were like "oh well".
I keep thinking about him and his cute little face and it makes me cry.
