Arrival Story: Edward was given to us from a friend. When he was a kitten he was very shy and often hid under the couch, I barley remember seeing him around too often - We took him too his first vet's visit and found out he tested positive for feline leukemia. At that time it was heartbreaking, as I had known nothing of these disease. I thought it was a death date for my cat!
A few years later he was living a healthy, normal life as indoor/outdoor cat. (It really gets tiring chasing him away from the door after awhile) - Until a recent move to NC from FL. We had stayed at a hotel in Orlando while we were attending Halloween Horror Nights. The second night (The night before we were suppose to be leaving..) I had oddly woken up too our hotel door room open and Edward missing.
We stayed an extra night and walked around the hotel/street shaking the bag to his treats several times - It was so unlike him to not come back. I literally had it in my mind that he would probably be back later that night or early in the morning... but he never did come back.
We couldn't spend money waiting for him. So we had to leave to North Carolina - Having it only being a few weeks to this date (October 5, 2012) it still breaks my heart and makes me cry anytime I think about it.
I can only hope and wish that some crazy cat lady picked him up and is giving him a good home. That he is okay.
