Well it sure has been too long. I keep trying to update my diary but every time the entry doesn't save! So hopefully this one will work. I have alot to update you on our feral friend.
He has been getting a lot better. He is actually friendly & sweet! The peeps got him to the point now where he doesn't hide but runs to them and likes to be brushed, pet & held! Its amazing. He is a bit of a talker too, but only if you talk to him. If one of my people says something to him like "How are you doing kitty?" he will respond with "Meow. Meow." It doesn't matter what you ask he will talk back to you in the sweetest way. It has taken a lot of time & effort but our buddy has come a long way. He likes to be talked to in baby talk, loves fresh water, toy mice and being scratched behind the ears. That all being said this week has not been his best and we have run into a big road block.
Yesterday morning my pops come into work to quite a surprise. As I have told you before my rents own their own lawn & garden business, and their work building is pretty small just one story with a basement used for storage. For several months now kitty has had the run of the building & has done well with it and is really active at night & likes playing he toys. Earlier this week something spooked him & he has started to go back to his original behaviors. And yesterday morning didn't help. When my human walked in he was welcome with half the office flooded with water, he scattered to try and figure out where it was coming from and found the source & what had happened. Someone left the cabinet under the sink opened in the kitchen the evening before & kitty ran in there after everyone left. He began moving around & trying to hide more and even though he is little guy he somehow managed to knock one of the pipes out of place which led to the office being flooded. Poor guy was frantic by now & found a new hiding spot. In the wall! We have no idea how he got there & actually for a good part of that day everyone thought he somehow got loose because they couldn't find him. But then they heard some faint mews close by. It was such an awful day. The sounds of all the fans & such spooked kitty even more & to matters even worse the shop vac the peeps were using caught on fire! OMC! Luckily no one was hurt. And we do know kitty can get out of his odd hiding place because morning we food eaten, water drank & poop left in the litter box. Everyone is just so worried about im & are afraid he might be hurt. So please if you can purrr for him.
We will keep you updated & sorry for the long post. Just so much to meow about!

That sounds scary! I'll be purring for him.
Purring for kitty! That sounds like quite the day!
Oh no, Maggie Moo. This is good news and bad news all at the same time! I'm going to send down some extra angel dust and purrs for him. I hope he is okay and will trust again very soon. Keep us updated!
Oh Noes! When I was new here, I did inside the basement ceiling, and then my littermates decided to follow me. Mommy knew we could get out but we kept going in there, and she was terrified we would get stuck.
Finally, Mommy got everyone out for good except for me. She kept trying until she came into the basement while I was out so she could close the entrance I was using to the ceiling, but I run too fast and she never could close it in time.
Finally, she had to borrow a trap and I went into the trap to eat by mistake. Then she and Daddy permanently closed the way I used to get up there.
Good luck, and I hope you come out soon! I was glad I did.
Ooops my paws are not working right today! I mean I HID in the ceiling.
Poor kitty, he likely thought his little world was coming to an end! Hope he can get back on furendly terms again!

Thank you all for the purrrs! Hazel it seems Kitty is in the situation you were, he isn't stuck but he could end up that way so we are going to give it a few weeks to see if he will calm down a bit and then will probably start thinking about trapping him again(easier said then done, he is a smart dude I don't know if he will tricked again with it again!)and "starting over" by locking him in the back room and slowly reintroducing him.
We hope he calms down soon, poor buddy went through so much! He was finally trusting people & coming out of his shell.
