He ran away! We can't find him and I am so worried because he is such a wimp in the cold. I keep hoping he took cover with some family until they can take him in to report him lost. We've scoured the neighborhoods, posted signs, prayed, called the humane society 100 times and talked with our neighbors.
The saddest thing about losing a pet, besides of course the idea that your pet may be suffering, is your kids' reaction. It's been so painful to see our little ones crying and asking questions to try to make sense of his absence:
"Mom, why did Chester leave?"
Did he not like us? Did he want to find another family?
Is he okay?
And this was hardest of all, the sign Liv made to post somewhere:
Back: (shows our house, where Chester ran from)
Hopefully, by the time this is posted, we'll have found Chester. :o(
