We have had freezing temperatures all night with wind chills in the single digits. He is not use to this since he has been indoors for several years. We have a serious stray dog and cat problem around here so he is mixed in with them all right now. I just hope he is ok. I didn't sleep well last night hoping he will return. This is the very first time he has escaped.

My son is worried sick. He had an assignment for school that is due today and had trouble concentrating on getting it done.

Please say a prayer for his safe return. =(

.
Will do..hope you find him soon!

Our cat is not an outdoor cat either. One time she was gone for three days. FINALLY, she came ambling home. We were so glad. Hope your son gets to feeling better AND that the teacher is understanding!

He isn't an outdoor cat, and it was well below freezing las night, we drove around looking for him, but no luck. Now we are just hopeful that he finds his way back home. There are a lot of strays in our neighborhood too, quite a few hang out at our neighbor's house and our house, we don't think he got into a fight with any of them though. I keep looking out the window hoping to see him walking up to the house.

If Boots got out she would freak (and I would too). She is an indoor cat only.

Good morning, Christmas friends. Only 15 posts to go to hit 1,000 so early in the year! I woke up late this morning, so I have to hurry out the door. Yak it up and get WAY past 1,000.

Edit: I didn't realize Wayne already posted about this. I just woke up. Last night we didn't know how it got broke but as of this morning it makes sense to me that my cats broke it.
Praying for your Cat's safe return!

I worry about him whenever he has to have medical procedures done. He's on immunosupressive drugs to prevent rejection of the kidney I gave him a few years ago. It seems like every time he goes to the doctor, he comes back sicker than when he went. All we can do is pray this helps more than it hurts, I guess.

I lighter news, I think our town beautification group has enough money to buy some year-round pole banners. Everytime we take down the Christmas banners, Main St. looks so bare. I was thinking something like, "Welcome to Historic Bellville". Or maybe some Fall banners?

I hope you all have a great day!
I was suppose to have that surgery done many years ago and never did. I had so many surgeries in the past and just didn't want another one! I pray for a speedy recovery for him.

That is good news on the banners!
