Where the Heck is Alice?

By Alison October 2, 2014 12 Comments 1 Min Read

I must have been very wicked in a former life or else the universe is really rather keen to only lend me animals when it believes I need them, and is just as quick to remove them from my arms the minute it thinks I don’t.
Alice, my cute as a button little black house cat has gone missing. She pushed open the stable door yesterday and simply disappeared. As she is the second black cat to vanish from my lane in the past two weeks I am really rather sick with worry and I have spent the past twenty four hours wandering around the vicinity, crawling through undergrowth and falling down holes in a relentless search for her, as she must be nothing short of terrified out of her wits with my crotchety neighbours warning that there “are ways and means of getting rid of animals” ringing in my ears after Alfie barked too much one afternoon.
One does so very much hate to be fatalistic about this thing we call life, but it does rather seem that I cannot be laid low by one disaster at a time, but must instead be walloped around the head with as many smelly, dead fish as the universe can throw at me.
Readers I am exhausted. And in danger of turning in to Liz Jones, all woe is me and I can’t go on and hells bells here comes another story about her bloody pets!
 I so desperately want my life back.

    My black cat, Boo, went missing last winter for three weeks! 80 below wind chill too. He strolled in one day like no big deal. Did it twice!(yes, he’s neutered) Its not the dang pets that need nine lives its their owners! I pray he returns or is returned soon. But not before he poops on the neighbors stoop 🙂 And sending big hugs and deep breaths across the pond to you.

    Oh dear! Could she be in someone’s shed or garage perhaps? We had a cat that went missing for a few weeks,totally out of character,but had been in a garage and the owners went on holiday,hurry home Alice!

    My cat often disappears for a few days then wanders in demanding Whiskers. Hoping she returns soon having made a deposit in the neighbours’ flowerbeds xx

    So sorry to hear your kitty is missing. My darling Kitty Kat was missing one time for five days and was locked in the neighbors garage. I was worried sick about her. I, too, drove around looking for her, calling her, and shaking the cat food box out the window. I just knew she was dead. I was so relieved when we found her. I hope and pray your kitty comes home safe and sound!

    Hope she makes it home soon! If she is not neutered she could be out courting 😉 hugs, Gill.

    You poor thing! Hoping and praying Alice turns up safe and sound very soon. It is possible she may have got shut in someone’s shed or garage. Your neighbours sound horrible, but surely they wouldn’t object to you checking in outbuildings?

    Oh dear! Having becoming “Mom” to three kittens in the past 18 months I know how dear these cats become to us. How full of worry you must be. Don’t give up hope though as cats are very resourceful and may just be wandering and finding her way back to you.

  8. Maria Bonham says:

    I know exactly what you mean. Just when you think things MUST be on the upturn, something else happens, and when a dear pet is in trouble it’s heartbreaking.

  9. I’m afraid cats do that. I’ve had them go for as long as six weeks and then literally strut back in your life again. I’m sorry. I’ve been there…out calling and crying… And the cat in question probably sitting ten feet from you… They don’t deserve our love, but oh, how I love cats… Good luck. Love you.

    I have had same as others cats go off then return as if nothing has happened and just occurred today ! After me fretting for days. Good luck hun. I know they often get locked in garages or sheds.
    Sending all good vibes your way for a safe return.

    Oh, I know how this feels! I have a sweet black kitty named Goblin and I’d be frantic if she went missing. But like the others who posted, I have other cats who wandered off (these are house cats, mind you) and strolled back home with no further ado, properly ungrateful that I fell upon them crying with relief. Please keep us updated!
