A Strange but Happy Return

It is always darkest before the dawn. Really. Just when you think all is lost ... tada!

Mrs. Lightning and I had just returned from an outdoor festival and Mrs. Lightning was opening a window in the front of the house. She heard a familiar meow, opened the front door, and saw Ivy sitting on a chair on our porch!

Very interesting. Ivy's tags are gone off her collar, but the collar is still there. She had no marks to indicate that she had been in any kind of fight. She was very lethargic, though, and would not eat or drink anything.  So ... Mrs. Lightning made a trip to the emergency vet (cha-ching), who said that Ivy is severely dehydrated and running a fever. She's getting an IV and staying overnight at the clinic (cha-ching), but should be okay.

So ... what happened? We had previously speculated that she might have been caught somewhere and couldn't get free. It looks like that might have been the case. Anyway, we are glad to have her back, but these vet bills are killing me!
