Today a week ago O’Malley ran off during a strong wind storm we had. Somehow he managed to go outside unnoticed the night before. We found him the next day but he was so scared he just ran off into the wooded area behind our yard. And he has been gone ever since.
We have gone door to door, hung flyers, called every veterinarian, animal hospital and all shelters in town. We’ve been walking all over the woods calling and looking for him. We have been going to the Humane Society every single day, but he is nowhere to be found.
O’Malley, being still a kitten (he is turning 6 months old in five days), not neutered, with no collar or chip, there is a huge chance that someone has taken him in thinking he was a stray….with a very full and round tummy.
Worst thing is, we were going to get him fixed and microchipped before he took off.
It’s been one week since my little boy ran off, scared of the storm. My little buddy, Mouse, our lover boy who loved to wrestle with fingers and toes, who loved to run into mirrors in the middle of the night. The boy who would jump on my bathroom counter to give my hugs and kisses.
O’Malley, you are greatly missed and loved.
We hope for you to come home.
