A series of unfortunate events...


Okay, I usually try to be really chipper and all that, but right now I am so SO worried! Our cat Lillie, the one I haven't introduced you to yet, has been missing since Monday, and I just KNOW something is wrong! The last time I saw her was Monday morning, but the kids say they saw her in our house that night. But I'm afraid that either way, it's just not like her. She has always loved to play outside, but she spends a lot of her day inside.




She is such a sweetie, and we all love her so much! She and her brother Max are so close, and have been together almost every day since birth. What would he do without her? What will we do?

We have such bad luck with our cats. We had two other cats before Max and Lillie. Our cat Lucy died of what they think was an aneurysm when she was just two and a half years old. She just walked into the dining room normally, then fell over sideways and died. It was horrible! I didn't think I would ever get over losing her, I loved her SO much! She was such a sweet cat. Our other cat Camas ran away when we adopted the kittens, and this was also hard for us, especially our son. So, you see, this is my series of unfortunate events. It makes me wonder if WE are bad luck!




This is Lillie when we first got her; she was unusually small for her age. We all immediately loved her!




She loves sleeping underneath lamps; I think she has seasonal affective disorder for cats. Maybe.

Oh Lillie, where ARE you?!

Our boxer is at least 10 and we constantly worry about her. I can't imagine if we couldn't find her. Your family (and kitty) are in my prayers. I hope she comes home soon!

Oh... poor Lillie! I hope she's safe and sound and comes home soon!

To keep your hopes up, I want to tell you that when I was little we had a cat named Pum and one day he went missing (we think he climbed into a delivery van) and showed up 6 months later at a friend's house down the street, so make sure to keep your eyes open. You just never know.

I hope you have found her by now. Once we lost our cat and found him a week later under the chimney. I just hate it when they stay out late and make you worry. :-)

Katie said...

Hope you find your sweet cat soon! I can't imagine how this would feel.

I am Katie, Shannon's sis in law. I just read your sweet comment. Thanks for praying for me!
