Sam is now at the vet, having his stupid gums and teeth dealt with.
Three teeth (five down in total), ten days of antibiotics, and five on pain killers. Control on Friday. He will probably eventually end up toothless.
And he needs a diet. He's eight kilos now.
At least he doesn't have FIV.
And now he's gone. He escaped his cage on the way back to the car after a control check-up at the vet.
I hope I'll see him again.
Saw him today, underneath some ladders, but he ran again when I got too close. Felt like a miracle that I found him. I guess I got too hopeful. I wanted to place his food close to him, maybe get within reach, but I never got anywhere close enough.
Going to try and borrow a trap from the animal rescue and hope he comes back to the same spot.
No sight of him today. Going to keep trying.
Sam is finally home again! Knew where he was for a long time, but he proved difficult to catch. In the end, some very nice people who live in the neighbourhood helped by feeding him, building trust, and in the end, catching him in a large cage.
My other cat, Sophie isn't much pleased.
@nulani I'm sure you'll see him again 🙏❤️
@nulani We are thinking about this constantly. Really hoping for the best.
@nulani Oh no! I don't know what to say other than your both in our thoughts for a speedy return home.
@nulani sending positive vibes your way. So hoping you will be reunited soon. ❤️
@nulani I am thinking of you. I hope he comes back soon
@nulani Just reading this makes me so anxious. 🙁 I hope you find him and get him home safe.
@nulani Love and best wishes! I'm rooting for a safe homecoming
I have to admit, the lack of good news for so long, had assumed the worst
@nulani This is great! I also get so sad when I see lost cat posters. I'm glad he made it back home.
@nulani Oh blessed day! I have been thinking of this ever since you posted, since our cat once ran away for a very long time. We got him back eventually, but he was very thin and rough looking, so hope everything is well.
@Zaziuma He has lost weight, but given that he was overweight, he's now pretty close to his ideal weight. A little bit scruffy from living rough for nearly three months, but he seems to be in good health and not much worse for wear.
