Mousey Tongue is missing. I got this kitty when he was barely 4 weeks old from the local shelter. He was so sick and covered with fleas. Weighing barely 1/2 pound, he was on the edge of death. My vet was not optimistic. But we gave him shots and medicines for his eyes and infections. I feed him through a baby medicine dispenser. He was so tiny we had to put him in a towel to hold him. Within 3 days of feeding him around the clock, he started coming around. His first act upon walking around was to bite my other kitty Socks on the tail while she was eating. I thought Oh NO! But Socks just looked back at him and came over to clean him. Loved each other until Sock's death at age 15.
He has grown into a beautiful long haired cat that my vet believes to be a Maine Coon. Yes, he is a big boy!. And I love him so. He comes to me every night for his brushing and petting session. And drools all over me. He sleeps in bed with me usually by my head. He's my baby.
My whole family is highly distressed and I am turning into a basket case. We haven't seen him since Thursday or Friday, depending on whom I ask. But when the storm came Saturday and he didn't show up, I knew something was wrong. He is scared of storms. He either gets in my lap if I'm home and under my bed or covers if I'm not. I'm so afraid I'll never see him again. I'm a chronic Pain patient and getting out of the house is a bit difficult. So my pets have become my home "friends"". My MH friends are also very precious to me. I have a tendency towards fierce loyalty to all my friends. And maybe sometimes I care too much.
If you live in the Denton Texas area please let me know if you've seen my baby. He means so much to me. He is micro-chipped and I've sent that company a report and so they are on the lookout. I've also posted on Petfinder and Craig's list. I will look at the pound tomorrow. If he's not there, I'll put an ad in the paper. There's not a collar made he can't wiggle out of. Can anyone think of any other resources? I'm open to any suggestions, no matter how off the wall they may seem. And please, even if I'm not one of your favorite people, keep ugly remarks to yourself.
