After about 6 hours of searching, and calling his name a neighbour mentioned that she saw a cat stalking something in the area of her covered storage area...
She and I went into the shed and looked around and huddled under a pile of wood I saw a mound of familiar looking fur.
He was not meowing or acknowledging our presence in any way so we had to grab him and remove enough wood to pull him out.
He was shaking and cold, obviously terrified.
I was shaking and cold with relief!
We are so grateful for the safe return of Chester.
I raced out and bought the largest bouquet I could find, a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates.
Delivered with a heartfelt Thank You card...
A Happy Ending to a stressful day.
I am still somewhat shaken...
and now we need to figure out how to cat proof the window so Chester stays safe.
How was your weekend?
