Mel’s sister and her husband have bought a new home and it’s really quite wonderful.  But there was a brief period (maybe a few hours) during which they had to have all their stuff out of the old house and before they could move it into the new house.  They put a bunch of stuff at our house including the cat.

The cat was put onto our screened patio with food, water, and shelter.  Mel and I are violently allergic to cats so he really couldn’t be put in the house.

He disappeared.

He clawed a hole in my screen and took off for reasons of his own.  He hasn’t been seen since.

Maybe he’ll show up at the old house.  Maybe he’ll return.  I don’t greatly care but I’d like to know what he was thinking.
