Oh! Marji, I've just seen this post again and am so happy that Mikey is back home and alive and well. I love "graceandham's" story about their cat being found on Easter morning when her husband said "He's alive, He's alive!" well of course being Easter morning I wouldn't think anything other than that!
Love and blessings Chris
So happy to hear that your Mikey has returned home. I just love the smile on his face. He is a cutie!
What a pretty kitty. So glad he's back. Hugs, Rachel
Just popped back in to see if he returned...oh so very happy he did..
Glad he's home and safe. My Hamlet (Prince of Marietta, Roswell, and Lower Alabama) disappeared one July day and didn't reappear until -- wait for it -- Easter Morning, as my preacher/husband was walking over to the church. He came back in the house saying, "He's alive! He's alive!" I thought he'd gone over the edge....
Are "Tender Vittles" still sold for cats.?? I had a cat about 20 years ago that was CRAZY about them. All I needed to do was shake the bag and say "Tender Vittles" and out of nowhere Mr Moose would zoom in..
Glad Mikey is home!!
Good news, and Thanks for sharing! God answers prayers!!! He is awesome. Your little MIkey is adorable!
So happy he came home. Being fixed he will not stay. He knows where he is loved and fed. He is lucky to have you. I have three outside cats like this. I have fixed them all. Mama and her brother Uncle Tom and Mamas last baby Pixie. Pixie comes in to sleep but the other two don't. We just put a house outside for them to sleep in filled with straw and insulated. Suzanne
...so glad Mikey came home, I knew he would, hugs S*
With that smile on his face he looks completely happy with you. Love him lots and he will probably always return. What a happy face.
Guess who came home this morning!!! Thank you, thank you to everybody who prayed for his safe return!!! He is a neutered male, so he doesn't go chasing the girls, but he was born outside somewhere, and had been a stray around here for 2 years until he decided to live with me. He came to me last year with his eye all bloody and his ear torn up from a fight with something. I guess he just knew I would help him, because he wasn't a bit afraid of me. Took him to the vet and got him healed up and neutered at the same time. He's really happy here, but having been on the loose for so long, I guess every once in a while he has to make his old rounds. He surely didn't come home starving, but he smelled like he'd been in somebody's garage, cuddling up to old engines and transmissions. What a boy! At least he's home safe now, and I can stop worrying about him, until the next time. Thank you all so much for caring, and for your prayers. It really means a lot to me, much more than I think you can ever know. Hugs, Marji
Here he is, on his chair with Santa, after he ate this morning.
What brilliant news
Glad to hear all is well-pretty kitty
Am so so glad to hear that Mikey is home safe and sound. STAY home now Mikey!!!!
I am so glad he is home!
Watch out for the ol' boy. Some males, neutered later in life, think they "still got it" and go out looking for love anyway. LOL
great news !
Sooooooo Happy for you both. I freak out if any of my babies are out after dark, so I know how relieved you must be. Hugs n love, Meg
He sure is a beauty!
What a lot of meauuuuu! (happiness) So happy that the little guy is now safe and Mommy is happy again.
Yippee and yahoo!! Marji I am just thrilled to read of Mikey's return!! He is one gorgeous boy!!!
Any "Meow" about Mikey??
What a Cutie!! I recently lost my two outside strays during the blizzard. They were missing for a week. Thanks to all the prayers they showed up .. They were buried under some cars in a car lot. Thinner but Ok. I am sure he is OK. Has he been fixed? if not he will stray looking for females. They always come back to where ever they are fed. Keep us updated. Suzanne
He has the most wonderful face. I hope he is back soon with his 'mum' who obviously adores him. Hugs Sarah.
What a beautiful Ginger, my prayers are that he will return safely, hugs S*
Nice personable face. I have heard cats will go missing for a few weeks and then show back up. He will wander back home soon.
My cats want to know what you offered Mikey to get him to smile like that? I hope he just has wanderitis and will be home soon to smile sweetly.
wow that is the face of a cat that is loved! He will be back for sure, let us know when he comes home Marji, hugs Loralye
Oh Mikey is so sweet, and I do hope he will return very soon to you. I understand how you feel absolutely...hugs Kerry
Oh Marji. I can't help but smile at this cute face. Let's pray he comes back home soon, I most certainly will pray for his safe return.
Thinking of you and Mikey...and hoping he'll be home very soon, safe and sound.
Its a year ago that Gandalf got catnapped & was missing for 6days.Someone living in some units about 100m away decided to lock him in her unit with her cats.Like Mikey he was a stray that decided to live with us & it has taken over a year to make him stay in at night,the turning point was when he got a very bad abcess on his front paw (looked like a chicken drumstick ) I thought it was broken but the vet soon sorted it out .Gandalf was very sick & didn't play up at being locked in.He still has the occassional night on the town.Hope Mikey gets hungry enough to return to his loving home
PS love that smile on his face
so sorry!! I have a situation also. My garage kitty whom I have fed 3 or 4 yrs had a injured hind leg and has been gone for days. He did show once to eat. He will not let me touch him. He no longer sleeps in his bed in the garage. I am worried about him also. Kay
Oh, Kay......so sorry to hear about "Mr. Garage".......We have them come & go here as well, and it tears us up when one goes missing....
Kay, I'm saying prayers for "Garage Kitty", too! Sometimes these strays are not too trusting of ANY human, since they've been chased and hurt too often. Hope you can get him some help, and that he'll let you. Hugs, Marji
Our cats deserve our prayers too. My prayers are added for a safe return. Please let us know what happens.
Oh, Marji, I will keep you & Mikey in my thoughts & prayers.........yes, I know first hand the worry, concern and the sleepness nights I had when Graycie was missing.......
Prayers for you and Mikey. I am sure he knows the way home. Even a stray needs the kind of love and compassion you have for other's. May God watch over you both and provide you the comfort you need.
Ah hes sweet yes i will pray God brings him home hugs Carolyn
What an adorable kitty! I am keeping good thoughts and prayers going for you. Our wonderful Siamese kitty got out once and disappeared for 5 days. She did return to us though, so I hope that you will be as blessed. Keep up your hope and faith and do not give up your search.
my prayers are out for the both of you !
Of course, I'll pray for Mikey. Love you, Chris
