Gone Again

8 May

Rocky is gone again.

I’ve spent the last four-and-a half months being grateful that I got him back, having him on the pillow next to me every night.

The last couple of weeks he’s been prowling. I knew he was trying to sneak out again, but I have been so careful with doors.

The hardest to catch and bring out was the most chill out there

Sometime on Friday, he managed to get out through the old coal chute.  I’ve been trying to figure out how to fix it because it’s been an issue since the phone company replaced the wire going through there.  I just haven’t been able to figure out how to take care of it.

Now Rocky’s gone again.

At least the weather is warm.  At least I know he’ll come home if he needs help.

Rocky might have been watching a spider walk across the floor.

I’m still heartbroken with him leaving, and several hours after I prepared this post on Saturday, I heard a meow when I was in the barn.  After about fifteen minutes of coaxing and talking, I finally caught him.

Right after he came back in.

He’s back in the house, and I’ve staked the coal chute shut.  I swear this cat is going to be the death of me.
