I don't usually post on here, but had to share my story. On October 15th, 2006 my husband and I, our two kids, 1 dog and 1 cat moved out to California from the midwest. We moved into our house on OCT 24th and my 12 1/2 year old cat escaped out the back door and was gone only 20 minutes after being in the house. I hadn't even set up his litter box yet! After that night we never saw him again (we heard a pack of coyotes attack something that same night....I was heartbroken). A little history...I have had this cat since he was 8 weeks old. Just before I flew him out here I had blood work done on him to check his health and it came back to show that he was in the beginning stages of renal failure. We started treating him with fluids under his skin every few days, but really there is no cure, just treatment and hope for the best. On Monday Jan29th my husband was taking the garbage outside and there he was standing on our neighbors front lawn!!!! It is truly incredible that he came back. He looked as if he had been well taken care of although I have no idea about his kidneys at this point. I have to take him back to the vet to have his blood retested to see where we're at. I am still in awe!! He'll be 13 this summer and we're so happy to have him home!
