    After 2 1/2 weeks, my darling 3 legged 15 year old cat Rocky came home!  About 10 minutes ago!  He's light as a feather, but ornery and beautiful to this entire family!  We are all crying!
    Christmas miracle.  Oh, my God, I am so incredibly amazed!  And incredibly thankful.
    I am not trying to get traffic, but I wrote a hub about him-and my other animals-not too long ago.
    Thank everyone for your loving words on that hub, and thanks for letting me share this!

      All my cats stay indoors, and he got out.  We-especially me-were devastated, but he's black and he escaped at night.  Thanks, UW and habee, for your lovely words!!!

    I know how you felt. My baby - a fawn Great Dane named Hamlet - esaceped one night. He ran across a busy four-lane street. hubby drove around looking for him, and a woman walking on the sidewalk told him she thought it was a deer crossing the road! I was in tears by the time hubby came home with my darling doggie!

    That's wonderful. Congratulations. I'm sure Rocky is just as happy to be home as you are to have him home. Christmas came a little early for both you and Rocky this year :-)

    Love good news like this! Don't you wish Rocky could tell you all about his adventure? It's amazing that he survived and found his way home.

    Happy, happy, joy, joy!

      Hubbers are amazing people, I wish I had time to respond to everyone, but this post cracked me up and gave me pause at the same time...I do wish he could tell me everything, HIS life must have had much more excitement in the past 2 1/2 weeks than I'LL ever see, but I imagine he was terrified as well.  He slept with me all night, has had a little water and food, but is hissing at every animal in the house...maybe he thinks they're predators.  I am sure he's still not certain where he is.  Time.
      Anyway, I appreciate my hub family and am proud to be a part of this community.

    So happy for you, your family, and Rocky.   I know just how you feel.   Give him a few extra hugs - and maybe some "people tuna" as a treat.   smile
