A few weeks back I wrote about my cat going off and missing for awhile. I had almost given up hope of him returning and lo and behold, 5 days later he showed up yelling to come in, starved down to a skinny gray mess of fur.
Well, he disappeared again 2 weeks ago. Last night when we were walking the dogs a young lady who lives about quarter mile from us pulled off and asked if we had a cat. She let us know that she found a cat, hit by a car, and yes he was gray. And it was 2 weeks ago, just after Hex disappeared. So, I finally have closure on what happened to him.
He had always come home, always slept close by, always sat in my lap when I had coffee every morning for the last 16 years.
Other cat owners and even our vet tech said when cats get old they will sometimes just wander off to be alone in their final hours. That was the scenario I had thought was likely since he is old. He'll be missed.
