First Toones, now Jax. I feel like I am being punished somehow, or have very bad luck. I know, I didn't microchip or use a break away collar on the tag I had.. it's my fault somehow... but I really just couldn't keep him in, I tried for months... then he was so insistent and excited and always came back every night. There are no predators here in Florida where we live 10 months out of the year... so for the past two he's been living free and happy. He's fixed... and mellowed out since we got him. Some of you may remeber that we got him to mend our broken hearts over losing Toonces... and Toonces is the picture I think still showing.. I am on a different computer and I don't have a pictue of Jax loaded in yet.
He has been missing two nights now. I just finally broke down.
I tried to get 'on' to the site for the past few months, wanting to check back in. NEver could. NOW I can. I guess at least it's what I need, when I need it.
Every time the kids come in/ someone calls my cell when I'm out... I think it means the cat is back. I can't sleep through the night, calling and searching is painful, all over again.
last night I searched in a neighborhood nearby that is a housing complex and our back yard abuts this, but I had to ride my bike out to the highway and ask to be let in the gate... then I was down near where the cats hang out and sawone that looked just like Jax. NOPE, not enough paws. He has thumbs he is so double/triple pawed.
I hope he comes back. I put flyers in all my neighbors mailboxes. We have looked around. Called early and late. I will call the vets and humane society, etc.. tommorrow. I am THIS close to calling Hillary Renaissance again. but that was so painful, I"m not sure I can handle the news that another cat is gone.
There are so any cats around here that I know no one took him. One of three things has happened in my mind. He is displaced. Lost. He is trapped in a garage or shed. He jumped in a car and was transported. This is the one that makes me wish I'd been more vigilatnt and gotten the darn breakaway collar on him. I was complacent. I wanted a 'normal' situtation. I wanted to think because of no predators that he'd be fine and denied that it would ever happen to me again.
Only 5 months later and My heart got attached and now smashed again.
I had a rough Fall. I had a miscarriage and then my father died. I am super busy and thought I was all set.. now this. I cant' believe it! I want Jax home NOW. I wish he'd just come home so I could be mad and glad to see him...
I could use some support. Thanks

Here is something I wrote as a memorial. We haven't had an official service yet, but this helped me to write.

My cat Toonces was out last Tuesday night July 24th and he usually only stayed really close to us. Very skittish, hated when i had parties or lots of company he didn' t know, he would hide on the basement step and watch the action. Once in awhile he would go outside at night and stay out. This worried me a lot. It was also a bother ( one I would love to have right now) for he would meow to be let in anxiously about 4or 5am, when his adventure was over. This time he never came back. I knew by 9am he was a goner, in my gut. But then we had landscapers come to the house and I had to deal with all that. Big machines, etc... ( which made me worry later that the noise frightenend him away, but really , now I think he would have run around the other side of the house, his usual side, and come to the back door like usual frantically. Plus I left it open as usual. It was safe for him to make his way back....) Anyhow, I have searched, called, cried a river, gasped in pain,...... and printed up flyers with his picture for neighbors, made some posters for the highway . We live down a long dirt driveway, with ocean and lots of woods near us. The road is far, there are many houses nearby but it's wooded between. I have looked thoroughly in outbuildings, basements, garages, etc...
( except for one basement of a neighbor I could check.....) and nothing has turned up. It's been a week now. I can't sleep good, feel the preoccupation all the time, my stomach isn't happy, and I dont' have much energy for my kids. Not for long stretches. Keeping up the efforts is hard. I did manage to get ads in my local papers placed, witha picture however. I will post the rest of my posters around town. It's hard though. It is painful to do!
I have found the websites enormously helpful, and reading the stories anbd sharing on this site have helped me alot. I talked to a pet detective ( in CT, closest to me, who can come up if I'd like tommorow, still unsure if it's worth it. ) I made contact with Hilary from calmpets.com a pet communicator, after reading about her on someone's post, and have an appointment today. I figured I have to try everything. I just don't know if I should bother with the extra help of having Marge come up with her dog to search or now, plus I want to know if I should try to resolve my pain or keep searching. It's killing me. We are supposed to go back south, ( school year residence) and I don't think I can go if I don't find Toonces. Also, I can't even begin to think about preparing for that seasonal move.
I would apprecitate any any all support. My baby is missing and it hurts so much. It is comforting knowing others feel the same. He was only 3, and my boys first really closely bonded to pet. We all loved him. Even my husband who claims not to like cats. He played a lot with Toonces. I will attach a picture if I can.
