THANKS FOR MESSING UP MY CALL STATS. I DON'T EVEN LIKE YOUR CANDIDATE.
Don't we deserve to know the name of the candidate who is messing with your call stats, so that we can turn this into a thread of discussing how much they suck?
Nothing to report.
Posted to a local community which has been very helpful with resources. One sighting of a big fat tuxedo cat about a mile and a half away (if so, he really moves and also crossed several really dangerous roads to get there); the spotter says she'll go back and check to see if it really is him.
Next theory is that he's been hiding out, sick, under a bed or in a dark corner somewhere.
The cat would also have had to cross railroad tracks somehow -- either on a bridge, or through the Sacramento Street pedestrian tunnel, or at grade.
Well, he apparenly is on an adventure.
May it be a brief one that ends with Abbie back safe 'n sound.

Maybe he went on a expedition to find the Patriots offensive line. I hope he returns, safe and sound.
Hang in there. Lost indoor cat is always upsetting but in my own (TENSE) experience, the cat does know where his food comes from and will return to the scene of the crime in fairly short order. It just doesn't feel so short because it's fraught with worry.
Hope it turns out well! I can't think of a really apt man-to-man cliche of support, but imagine that I did and that's what I'm typing here: ________________________________________________!
I've had an outdoor cat get outside only to be found cowering in a neighbor's backyard. The same cat also once hid indoors for the better part of 24 hours, and didn't come out even when we shook a bag of kitty treats. We have no idea what he was doing, but he showed up before bed looking for his dinner.
That's the usual mode of indoor cats who get out, or stuck. Folks are surprised at how close to home a lost cat is usually found.
*nod* A big outdoor cat busted down a screen window (we know she did it from outside, because it was forced inwards, not out) and he chased her through several backyards. There were tufts of fur from both of them all over the place, and he was sitting there looking bravely confused.
I hope he gets home soon.

Come Back Mr. Abbie!!
I hope Abbie returns safe and sound too. I would hate to think the best cat-blogger in the world has gone missing. Hugs to you for his safe return and please let us know when he returns.
Two of our three cats have been missing overnight, one on multiple occasions.
Invariably I find them in the backyard, wondering what all the fuss is about.
Good luck, thinking of you.

we've had 2 indoor cats fall out windows and go on grand adventures. one was back the next night (she didn't dig outdoors) and the other returned feral, but we got him back after 3 months. (oh, that white cat? yeah, we've been feeding him for a couple of months now!)
