First time poster but owner of a cat since 1997.
My cat Friskie who'm I have had since grade 7 pre summer has gone missing. She was a less than year old cat that was not treated well at home so she kept escaping to our place until we finally had to take her in. She was VERY, VERY healthy, strong and fun until the summer of 2009 I believe. She lost a ton of weight and was diagnosed with kidney disease. We gave her medicine, treated her with IV whenever it was needed. More so lately than ever. More so in the summers though.
She has changed her ways a bit lately, I don't know if she thinks her time is coming or what. Anyway, 2 days ago my dad let her out and she usually sits around the yard maybe onto the field behind the house. But she vanished. For about 8 hours at least, which is pretty significant for her lately.
Today, however the same thing happened except it is now 11:30 pm and she's no where. I thought she may come out in the evening or at night or maybe I'd see her eyes with a flash light. No sign. Deep down I feel that this is it.
In the summer she usually lays in one spot on grass or under tree and if I see her dehydrated I bring her in cause she barely moves and then IV and bang good to go. My fear is she traveled so far off she laid and it was soooo hot today that she just can't make it back. I told my dad after 2 days ago not to let her out until it cools down and we get her fixed up... Unfortunately he didn't listen. It's very easy to blame him but he loved her too I know I can't do that.
I feel so hurt right now, it was my first cat and she's been with me most of my life.
I would like to come and may this be what makes me come here and post again. If this is indeed it, and I will keep you posted, then I will not want a cat for a very, very long time. She was the friendliest cat ever.
