*Newsflash 16th June 2010*
Hi all!... well I just want to update you that this very lunchtime 16th June 2010 my Pixie lovebug has been brought home alive and well to me!!!! Cue [scream!!!!!!]
I am soooo happy, words really can't express!
16 days missing and I was having a terrible day of feeling sick with worry at work. I even went to see Sex and the City 2 last night at the cinema to try and take my mind of her but it was so rubbish I kept staring at the ceiling feeling sick again, remembering my Pix playing on the landing the last night I saw her. There was even a beautiful and massive slither of moon and a twilight and it just made me pine for her. I couldn't even eat the Ben & Jerry's icecream I bought! That's being lovesick for you!
So back to today... a man called my other half to say he thought Pixie was in his garage... (what a surprise... a garage!) He had seen her a couple of times today but couldn't get near her to be fully sure but had her cornered in anyway. (I am yet to get the full story but I understand there were holes to get in and out) Basically this is across the busy B road that is Cottingham Road in Hull and right near the Gardeners Arms pub, where there are a few lock up's and this was one where a furniture maker was based.
My partner left work straight away and wasn't getting his hopes up that it was her as we’ve had a couple of let down sightings and she was hiding when he got there. After calling for a while and shaking the bic's, she came out and ran to him miaowing. He scooped her up and hugged her, she recognised him straight away! The man who found her who had a cat himself then got her a box for the short walk across the road to where we live.
She was within 300 yards of our house the whole time!!
My partner was going to surprise me when I got home from work but had to call me in the end and it was one of those serious calls, where your manager says... someone's on the work phone for you and your stomach drops thinking er ...what bad news is it? He just said “I have a little brown cat here, boxed and sealed up in our living room!” I just couldn't believe it for 5 mins and kept asking if he was sure? Then I got a round of applause at work. One colleague said, are you going to cheer the hell up now?
I took an extended lunch to see her and when I walked in the room I did have a little cry with joy on hugging her! She is very skinny after 16 days on her own and has a slight wound on her hind leg but the vet checked it out and it was like a cat bite. She washed it down and gave her a shot of antibiotics and said she was a lucky cat. Her sister Firefly hissed at her when I introduced them so I need some Feliway stat. Sisters hey! tsk! Firefly is still not happy now and is very upset the dominant one who smells funny is back again!
So there you are guys... I was seriously giving up hope and felt sick all the time with worry but there are miracles after all and this is the best day ever... really! I can now join the gang who say DON'T GIVE UP HOPE and my cat was a female spay who really shouldn't have wondered off! Best of luck to all of you with a missing pet! I seriously know how you are feeling. A collar and GPS for Pix. Well GPS maybe for xmas!
Have uploaded a pic of Pix taken this lunch time happy at home!
