loop de loop...

I hesitated coming here with this news because many people mainly surf the net for great ideas or an encouraging word but, amidst my Imogene excitement and Hannah's Golden Birthday (pictures coming soon)...

Dukey (Sophie's cat-baby) went missing on the 10th.

I know this isn't a person and do understand that there are greater traumas going on in our world today and will be more in the future but we are hurting for our missing Dukey.
His brother went missing this spring and never came back...I couldnt handle that with Dukey.
when Dukey was a sick/scared kitten

He was very sick when he was a kitten and we seriously bonded...to the point where I now had a full grown meat head of a cat sleeping on my chest thinking he was still a kitten.
I now find myself driving slowly through neighboring blocks calling loudly out the window "Dukey Doo!" and not caring if others think I am crazy.

sigh.....
hearing your sweet 6 year old crying out her kitties name in her sleep is so very hard when you can't do anything to help (well,except for praying and even then we aren't promised a return).

so there you have it.

Oh man. I'm so sorry! I've had 2 cats never return and it's very sad. But on the flip side, I had a cat go missing for 7 weeks and he returned! You never know... I'll send some good thoughts your way...
