My kitten, Barnaby, got out of the yard yesterday evening and didn’t come home at bedtime. We went looking for him but couldn’t find him.
We were all very upset and I went to sleep feeling very sad.
At 4.15 a.m. I heard a sound outside and immediately alerted the tall person.
When he opened the back door I was relieved to see my little Barnaby.
He was very pleased to see us.
He had clearly been roughed up and had a small cut beneath one of his eyes.
Tall person administered some first aid and then Barnaby curled up against me and fell asleep.
He has been very subdued this morning and spent most of the time asleep on his favorite red chair. I will have a chat with him later and remind him that the streets can be very mean and he needs to stay away from bigger boys.
