Cat

So, he's gone. Maybe he'll come back, but he'd already been gone three weeks by the time I came home; it seems unlikely. Maybe he was hit by a car or eaten by a prairie dog or abducted by cat-coveting aliens, but one night he just didn't come back.

I didn't know until I got here, the housemates didn't tell me. Which is just as well, because I was already stressed out about finals. They made the right decision. But it's kind of ruined the homecoming -- I was really looking forward to seeing him. And I keep thinking of him all the time -- unlike Japan, everything around here reminds me. This was his house -- I didn't actually buy it for him, but I can't say he wasn't a factor in the decision, either. I keep expecting to see him, and he's not here.

From what Dusty tells me, they put in a fair bit of effort looking for him. I have to thank them for that.

I'm really bummed about it.

July 23rd would have been his tenth birthday.
