I can't believe she's been gone almost a week. Strangely, my neighbor Dave's cat has been missing a week. He has two white cats and one disappeared last Friday, a day before Bella went missing. The neighborhood stray was hit by a car and killed :( But, good news also: another neighbor whose cat has been missing for a few weeks has her cat back! It just came home yesterday.
We've had Bella a year and a half, she was a stray who just moved in back in December of 2009. She always demanded her freedom, there was no way I could keep her in the house. She did get very lovable over the winter, but warmer weather sparked her free spirit and she refused to come home many nights.
I'm still hoping she will come home and that she is safe and happy.
