Thanks to all of you who left comments on my previous post.
Unfortunately, Bob is really gone.
When I mentioned to one of our neighbors that he was missing she told me that the day before (which was Monday) her kids wouldn’t go outside because of the turkey vultures swooping in the field behind their house. There have also been coyotes around.
I had checked a bit in the other fields but hadn’t looked in this particular field. So Daisy and I went for a little walk this evening. I was hoping to find Bob’s collar so that I would know that he was gone and not coming home, ’cause I keep looking.
I found his collar as well as what remained of him, which I wasn’t really expecting for some reason. Coyotes got him.
It was pretty sad. The kiddos don’t really understand, and I guess this is how they learn. They understand enough to know they are sad and he is gone and they want him back.
He was a super cat and he sure had a pretty good life with us.
