It's amazing how fast things change. Yesterday, Jer and I were stewing in our own misery. Our beloved indoor cat, Luna, had mysteriously disappeared Saturday night, and the thought of her alone and outside took it's toll. We didn't eat, we didn't sleep, we were a mess. Then, late in the afternoon yesterday, we decided to take one more walk around the thick forest that surrounds our home. We were certain she'd escaped into it, but the density and size made us think it would be impossible to find her. She'd have to come to us when she got hungry enough. On a previous search I had found a perfect kitty hiding spot, where tree roots and leaves created a nice little tunnel. However, it was pretty far away, so I just gave it a quick look and moved on. This time, I had Jer and a flashlight at my side. I had Jer check it out. He, too, was impressed with the perfection of the hiding spot, and aimed the flashlight down into it. Moments before giving up, Jer caught Luna's eyes in the light. Of course, at the time, we thought they could have been raccoon or rat eyes, but we stood strong and pulled our catatonic kitty out. Back home, it took Luna 30 seconds to eat, poop, stretch and act like nothing ever happened. Jer and I collapsed on the floor and giggled like little girls.
Thank you very much for all of the well wishes we received. We never expected such a response. Gamers are good people.
