I have been reluctant to blog this news, as it is so personal and painful to me. But since I have spoken of my kitties here before, it seems appropriate.
Last Friday, the 17th of May, my most beloved cat Clara disappeared. We have been searching diligently for her, but have yet to find her. I have filed a lost cat report with our county animal control and the Denver Dumb Friends League. (Thankfully, she is microchipped.) A notice has been posted at the entrance of the neighborhood and flyers given to all of our immediate neighbors, but no one has seen her. I have gone on many kitty-kitty-kitty-kitty-Clara calling walks, to no avail. Living in the semi-rural area that we do, we fear that a coyote caught and killed her, but there is just no way of knowing. She is a large and savvy cat, so I am hopeful that she will turn up.
Clara is the Platonic Form of Catness. She is reckless, curious, and demanding. She is my favorite of our three cats.
I can only hope that she returns soon.
