Missing

This could be a photo of my missing cat Bella Boo, or of her son Pettie Boo, too. It’s not, but it looks exactly like the two of them.

Up until recently, although both being white, it had been very easy to tell them apart. Pettie had finer fur, a longer tail, and long legs, while Bella’s fur was more sheep-like, very thick. She had shorter legs, a thicker tail, and was overall more compact. Her face was rounder while his was more pointed.

Over the last couple of months, at four and a half years of age, Pettie has filled out. His fur has got thicker, especially on his tail, and he looks just like a bigger version of his mother. Apart from the shape of his face; that difference is still very much there.

Every so often I catch a glimpse of him from the window and think it’s Bella, that after twenty-two days she has finally come home. I won’t give up on it, her coming back, but with each passing day it gets harder and harder to hold out much hope.

There's always a chance she'll come home, Hully. Don't lose hope!

I try not to, Jeff, but each day that goes by makes it seem less and less likely.

Growing up we always had cats, and I have found myself in this situation on a few occasions. Some times it had a happy ending, sometimes not.
I hope yours has a happy ending.
Kind regards
Celtic.

Thanks so much for that, Celtic-Scribe. She's gone off before, ten days was the longest, but now we're heading towards twenty-four it's hard to keep positive.
