Visited my dad and step-mother today. Found out since last I had been there a couple of weeks, one of their cats disappeared.
Basically, when they were coming home, and as soon as they opened the door, it went running out for whatever reason, and hasnt been seen since. About a year old, it was a stray kitten , stepmother had found in a sickly state about 6 months or so ago and nursed back to health. I guess it depresses me more than if it had been one of the others because it had been generally the friendliest towards me of all their cats. Liked for me to pet it, even would follow me around their house sometimes when I went from one room to another or the bathroom.
While I guess it some chance it is still alive, I would put the chances at extremely slim. It was partially blind in one eye, and probably a bit too gentle to survive long (and there was a coyote in the area a couple of years that pretty well thinned out the feral cat population before it moved on. And also one of their own cats that was partially an outdoor cat, which meant the other 2 partially outdoor cats became permanent indoor ones) ANd it has been a week plus with no sign.
