Return of Scrunchy


Well, good news on the case of the missing cat. The other day, I wrote that our cat hadn't come home for several days, which was unlike him. Above all, he hates to miss a meal.
Last night, Scrunchy showed up after a 5 day vacation.
My husband was taking the garbage out around 11 pm & heard a cat meowing inside our neighbor's garage, which sounded suspiciously like Scrunchy. The door was locked, so we called our neighbors. We could hear him meowing and when they opened the doors, he disappeared.

Either the noise of the garage doors opening or the fact that there were strangers around must have scared him. I even left some food by the door, but he wouldn't come out. He must have run up the stairs of the garage and hid behind some stuff for a while, but I finally coaxed him out. He ate his meal & I brought him home. He looks fine, but maybe a little thinner.

We're not sure how long he was inside the garage. Our neighbors have been doing yard work, so they've been in and out of the garage over the past few days. He snuck in at some point, but we don't think he could have been in there the whole time, since his voice was strong and he doesn't look like he's starving. He's not giving details of the rest of his vacation.
Of course, he's now downstairs howling to be left out.

Congratulations that your feline has returned. Even though we hate to admit it our pets are like our family as well. God Bless Scrunchy:)

Well, he got grounded for a day for his running away from home, but he's back on the street again . . .
