The Found Cat

Incredibly, Misty has been found! I'm trying to act happy about this but frankly I think she is just waaaayyyy too much trouble to keep. Mom really should let me deal with her. It would be short and sweet.

Anyway, Misty wandered 13 houses away, but never crossed the street, and sautered into the home of Florence and her husband. Misty joined their all-gray cat Smokey in chowing down cat food, right in the house! Florence had picked up a "lost cat" flyer and knew immediately that Misty was the intruder and she called Mom to come and get her. Florence said the "lion tail" was the dead giveaway. When Mom showed up Misty hid in the sewing room. Mom finally caught her and Misty purred for 10 seconds then she ran into the family room and hid behind the chair. Mom grabbed her again and took a couple of photos with Misty and Smokey "sitting" in Florence's lap. They are two evil looking felines if you ask me, plotting something nefarious. They sure look alike.

Mom has been kissing Misty and cooing at her, all pretty disgusting given how upset Mom has been about Misty's shenanigans. When Misty showed up I got up the energy to get off of my bed and sit up and bark at her. It's the least I could do!

Only Misty's "lion tail" is visible behind the chair. Click on the photo to make it larger. Misty is hiding from Mom when she went to rescue her. I guess Misty would have preferred to stay with her new buddy Smokey.Posted by Picasa

Misty and Smokey acting out. Can you guess which is which? They are in the lap of Misty's savior, Florence from 13 houses away.Posted by Picasa

Misty and Smokey -- which is which? Ha, ha. That stupid "lion tail" gives her away. Sitting next to Florence, Misty's savior. Posted by Picasa

Cynthia, Sammy and Misty,
This is great news (sorry Sammy, but it is!)
We were soooo worried about her. It's uncanny how you and the neighbor cat look alike! Welcome home!

Wonderful news, Cynthia. Sammy, we are so glad for your Mom that Misty is back. Try to be a little happy, too, Sammy. Look at it this way, now Mom can stay home and give you treats instead of running around looking for Misty.

Well, I guess it's good news. But it might have turned out better if the cat had stayed at the other cat's house for longer. and you are right, they are planning something in that picture, I agree that they may be up to mischief, keep an eye out if that other cat comes to visit you!
