Calvin is HOME!!!!

I am sooo happy. My baby has come home. For anyone who knows me, they know how much this cat means to me. I have had her since she was 5 weeks old. And she will be 11 this April. She is a HUGE cat. Garfieldesque if you will. After combing the streets for hours shaking a bag of cat food and calling her name I was really upset that she did not come running to me. But then I read online that sometimes it helps to leave a shirt or something that smells like you outside. I could not leave food out because we would be covered in cats but I did leave a shirt on my fence post and left our light on outside. About 2 hours after I had gone to sleep I heard this frantic scratching at the door. I ran out to see it was her and it was. I was so happy. She came in ate 2 helping of food and the immediately came and snuggled with me on the bed. She was totally fine - but I was shaken.

I am just so happy to have her home again.

Oh so happy for you! I am a life long cat lover and I know I would have been freaking out if I were you. Hold him tight and give him some extra treats!

(Any way to keep him from getting outside? I know the windows here usually stink for keeping cats in, but it's better for your heart and his health in the long run!)

I'm happy the t-shirt thing worked. That's a great idea.

Be sure to check the kit kat for ticks though. My Moco escaped for only an hour and got hit by a tick. So make sure you do a thorough check.

Also, if you haven't started her on heartworm medication, you might want to do that. Living in the tropics brings out a whole new lot of critters you have to worry about that can hurt your loved ones (pets).

I just discovered your blog and I think it is wonderful. You are a wonderful mom and wife. I live in FL and we have a place in Cancun. I have so many children movies....I would love for your children to have them. perhaps we could arrange that the next time I am in Cancun. We always take a day trip to Tulum.
