Jack our Cat

(With apologies to WH Auden)
Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Jack was missing when we came back,
He is gone.

He was our friend, our pet, our midnight companion.
He slept with us, ate and played and ran (with the kids.)

Its been 12 days now with not a word,
FeralMB is very sad as she was looking after him for us.
We can only hope he has found another home to live and a
new family who will love him as we did.

You are quite right that having some closure is good in situations like this. I can't imagine how it must feel to be wondering where Jack is :(

Yes thank you CW it is very sad. Telling the children that he has found another home while we were away.
