Ever since our close call with Spooky the other night we haven’t been able to find him again. We assume he is somewhere around the area where we had last seen him. I look for him during the day thinking he might be easier to spot and again in the late evening when he might be out walking about.
After searching all over I was beginning to think that Spooky didn’t want to be found and would come home when he was ready. I planned to keep looking but I was getting quite discouraged without being able to find him anywhere.
On Wednesday evening were busy getting the house ready for some guests and I was planning to go out for another look around the area for Spooky after I was finished.
We were missing some wheels for a bed we were setting up in the spare room. My wife decided to run out to the store and pick-up a set to save time. When she came back she had a surprise. Spooky was with her!!
Spooky back home safe and sound
While she was driving back home she saw Spooky sitting under a car in the back lane. She stopped and managed to coax him out and got him to come to her. I guess he was done being an outdoor cat and was finally ready to come home.
Dax welcomes Spooky home with growls and hissing
Spooky grabbed on to her all the way back to the house. I was downstairs and heard her come in. She was talking to someone. When I heard her say Spookyâ€™s name I ran upstairs and was amazed to see him there in the kitchen.
He was very happy to be home and was fine despite the fact he had been out on his own for five days and nights. â€œYouâ€™re a sight for sore eyes Spookyâ€, I told him.
Ready for a bath and a good meal
Relaxing after his 5 day outdoor adventure
Happy to be home
It was great to have him back home. What a huge relief! He needed a meal and a good bath but apart from that it was as if he had never left. Spooky also got a big reception of hisses and growls from the other cats. I guess they missed him too.
Welcome back Spooky!
