I know just when, too.
Woke up this morning around five-ish, and she was in the bed with me happily waiting to get her belly scratched. She went downstairs and outside, as she usually does around then, and I took another snooze because it was too cold to do anything else. She often comes back up, but didn’t. I never saw her again.
Didn’t want to panic, but I was gone all day doing arsenic caps and when I got home she’s still nowhere to be found. She’s always been good about sticking close to the cabin, but I’m afraid it didn’t help her this time. There’s no other safe place for her to be, and she’s never run off before. The dogs and chickens didn’t alert to anything, and if I had to guess I’d say she got caught by an owl.
Miracles don’t happen around here very often, so I’m afraid she’s gone.
Given the way Click’s been going downhill the past few months, this is extremely depressing.
