Two full days and nights, and he's not been back. Usually when one cat disappears like this the others don't even blink. They know the living cat, and apparently once a cat dies, it's out of their memory banks. This time Toby is looking lost, and subdued; then I realized that he and Sammy were, if not littermates, at least bonded males, which is the next thing to it, and he is wondering, perhaps, what's missing in his life right now. Damn.
Anonymous posts will not be published, unless I know who is doing the posting: I know there are times when you can't access a site using your own name, and that's okay, I have trouble too. But there are too many dodgy posters out there who pretend to know a blogger, but you never see a name, only "anonymous".
Identify yourself in your post, and we'll all be fine. =)
