On Monday night our cat, Max, scratched at the door as if he wanted to go out. I opened the door and there was Betty, after a week and a half of being missing! She was afraid to go into the house because we have a porch cat that is possessive over the heated A-frame home she lives in. Jacques was able to shoo the tortoiseshell out so that Betty could come in.
Tyler and I were screaming so loudly, Betty didn’t want to come near us!
I don’t know where she’s been all this time but she didn’t look like she had lost any weight and there were no signs of frostbite. I wonder if she had taken refuge at a neighbor’s?
Well Betty’s telling no tales and I hope she doesn’t express a desire to go out until the spring!
She is such an affectionate, sweet cat, I am really happy to have her back!
Thanks to everyone who kept good thoughts about her safe return!

In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.
