On Tuesday night, our cat Fred was yowling and crying in pain - he couldn't use his left back leg.
On Wednesday, I spent all day (and $200+) with him, trying to get him in to see a vet. We found out he will need surgery to repair a deteriorating hip joint.
On Thursday morning, after I'd lectured J about keeping him inside, on my watch, he snuck outside.
He has been gone ever since.
And I am devastated.

Wow, that's really sad. I hope you find him.

Feeling for you so very much. I would tell stories that are similar, but the fact is it sucks and no shared story compares. I. am. sorry.

I grew up on a farm and our cats did this all the time. I bet you he shows back up. Sometimes they just want to be alone.

I hope he's back soon.
