Tippy is home again - just now.
My friend found her cat IN her classroom! 10 days after he went missing. Hungry, stressed - but maybe not injured.
Last night she found cat poop and hairs in the small apartment she uses for her English classroom - it is next door to her home apartment. We put a cat trap cage in the room and left some convenience store chicken inside.
And - wow! - just now on Facebook she messaged me that she had got him!
But cat owners have many similar stories - cats disappear and are found IN sofas, closets, car engines, walls....they survive.
I am so happy. This past week has been very sad for all of us as we looked and looked.
Now, we have to go all round the Nakajima Park/Gyokeidori area and take down all the posters...and tell all the kind people we told originally - that this story had a happy ending!!
