I know how you feel. My last kitten, Munchkin was catnapped :crying: It happened on a Sunday. I had a problem with the electricity that morning, and my husband was away for the weekend. I had a friend come over and see if he could help me solve the problem. By the time he arrived my kitty had disappeared, leaving a grieving “mother” and a grieving “dog” who was her companion.
She has not returned and she disappeared last August. That was the day of the school fair across the road from my house. My husband finally found evidence that she had been taken when he discovered her rather prominent pink collar in the gutter of our neighbour’s house. I know how you feel about the comfort factor because Munchkin used to cuddle up to me when I was feeling very depressed. My father died in 2003 and then things went wrong in the workplace for me (Long story). When I was given Munchkin I was consoled through her loving presence. If I was sad and lying down she used to snuggle up to me, against my chin, and if I moved her she moved back again. Ruby my dog also cuddles up when I am feeling depressed and discouraged.
I have a new kitty named Skittles. I panic if I do not know where she might be hiding. She is part Siamese and has all of the playful traits of that breed. I love her to bits and she reflects the love that I feel for her. I mean how many kittys do you know who can pull down your trouser zipper? How many do you know who thinks of placing a sock in the door (of my son’s room) to make sure that it cannot be closed? How many can turn on the TV? Yet there are many who will sit in their human’s lap and purr. That is what I really love.
I hope you kitty comes home soon. You must be very heartbroken.

Thank you so much, Maggie–you surely know how close we get to kitties and their love. I am so sorry your wee Munchkin was catnapped, that is so sad. A few folks have asked me if Frankie might have been stolen and it is hard for me to picture because of where we live. We live on a rural highway and have a long driveway and anyone who ventures onto it would be noticed by the neighbors on either side of me, and by the dogs. Also, Frankie is not interested in other people! He is very shy of other humans and pretty skittish, so it is hard to imagine him allowing himself to be snatched up by strangers. He might allow himself to be fed by them, however! I hope he is safe and will return to me soon. Many blessings to you, Maggie.
