My lost cat is home tonight - hurray!
She has been trapped for the last 4 weeks in a house right across the street that's been vacant and for sale for over a year now. I think she must have gone in out of curiosity when the agent or caretaker was around one day and then unknowingly locked in. Tonight, the young fellow mowing their yard called us, having seen the lost cat sign, and when my boyfriend went over to check, the guy had her out sitting on the porch with him.
She's very thin but hydrated - probably drank from the toilet. She still has enough energy to jump to the top of the breakfast bar and is very happy to be home. We're going to the vet first thing in the morning (I called his emergency number right away) to get her checked out.
Thank you all so much for your concern and good thoughts and prayers. They worked wonders!
Love and gratitude,
