The Homecoming of the Prodigal Molly

I am so happy to announce Molly's return to you all. You have being so supportive. All your wonderful suggestions paid off. I caught her on the night of Ore's birthday. Ore's Xmas gifts to me which include 2009 Calender full of cat pictures and a cat magazine called CAT FANCY were good omen! And these gift are fabulous!



I got home that night and Molly was already out crying for food. I succeeded in luring her into taking the food right from my hand while I stroked her ( She had never got that close before). Phew, I captured her! She gave us a tough night. I over-sedated her with sleeping tablets but she didn't sleep. The tablets took effect on Friday night!


She cried a lot. She still cries, she purrs and she made an attempt to escape yesterday. Now she has calmed down. She is back to being my cat, my friend. I willl take her

Standtall Husband has mixed feelings. You know, I am sure Molly ran away for him (lol). Now, they are watching each other.

Thank you all for your love and concern during the trying period!

Yay Molly is back!! So did she tell you where she's been???

Hurray!

Somehow, I was always confident she would come back. She looks very skinny - but so beautiful still. Be certain that she eats and drinks a great deal, just in case she might have a touch of fatty liver syndrome.

Eating and drinking is the only cure.

I hope hubby and Molly can get over it and learn to love each other.

How wonderful that she came back finally ! You know cats don't act the same way as we do on sleeping pills I experienced it years ago. It takes a few days until they react ! but there is something wrong with her. Watch now if she puts on weight otherwise you should get her checked by a vet.
