>Still missing

> I’m very sad, and my imagination is running riot. But it’s Tinker I’m worried for. She’s been missing since Tuesday evening, which is so unlike her, and all I keep thinking is she must be trapped and frightened somewhere, and I hope someone finds her before it’s too late. I’ve registered her at petsearch.com and will look at another one shortly. There are posters out. The neighbours are all keeping an eye. I can’t believe that she was rolling in the dust and sunshine one minute, and gone the next. Thanks to everyone for the lovely messages of support and concern. Please keep everything crossed.

Today I break up for a week, again. I always try to when we’ve finished a magazine. On Sunday I’ll be driving down to see my dad for Father’s Day (will try to get there before noon …), on Monday I have physio and a Sky engineer, on Tuesday I jump on a train and meet Shirley in Settle for the day. The rest of the time – I’ll probably be at my wits end.

Keeping busy is good, but being creative is difficult when all I want to do is find my cat.

Hopefully more upbeat very soon.

    >I do hope she comes back soon. I've heard of cats returning after a couple of weeks and longer. Hopefully she won't wait that long but try not to lose hope meantime.

    >there was 'socks' a cat in the news this week, still alive after a month stuck inside a container so fingers crossed Tinker will turn up soon. As you know I didn't want Kitt but she's part of the family now.Josie x

    >Prayers for your Tinker, Diane. It's so hard when they go off somewhere. If it helps, we had a cat – Hal – who'd made it a habit of going off for a month at a stretch. He always returned, usually with new war wounds (or love taps?), but he never failed to come back when he'd sown his wild oats.

    >Josie: My first cat disappeared for 10 days. I think he might have been stuck in a garage or shed while someone went on holiday. They do amaze us at times, don't they?

    >Thanks to you too, Lori. I know they often come back, but it is very unlike her and hard to understand under the circumstances. I just hope she didn't jump into the back of a car.

    >I feel for you, Diane – you must be going out of your mind when it's out of character for her to stay away.Hope this turns out to be just one of those things that cats do from time to time completely out of the blue and she turns up safe and well soon.
