Full Disclosure: I Miss My Boyfriend

In what appears to be a case of deja vu all over again, the lightning36 family is once again faced with a difficult situation.

Readers not new to this blog might remember that almost two years ago, Ivy, one of our cats, disappeared, as chronicled in this post. She appeared a few days later on the brink of death. Amazingly, my wife nursed her back to health and Ivy remains a treasured family pet to this day.

Unfortunately, another cat, Boyfriend, has disappeared. Boyfriend was a stray that showed up in our backyard a few times, receiving his name because we kidded that he was Ivy's boyfriend coming to visit. He was skittish and we guessed that he might have been abused and then dumped. As he got to know us (we, of course, lured him into the family with food!), he changed completely. He became very affectionate and loved hanging out inside the house. Whereas our other cats always seemed to be on alert, Boyfriend always acted unfettered, not having a care in the world.

It is troubling that he is gone since he always came into the house to eat, if only for a few minutes before dashing back out to do whatever it was he usually did.

So today we will be posting signs in the neighborhood. And hoping.
