Oreo returns. Mending afoot.

Oreo came back.  But he wasn’t well.
He moved only very slowly.  His back permanently arched, in a position that shouldn’t have lasted.

Cat. Gone. Waiting. What to do.

He didn’t eat every morsel last night.
He slept inside without complaint until very late in the morning.
He did not ask for breakfast.
He slipped outside with the dog,
I thought it’d be brief, assumed he would venture not far… and come back in.
If he wasn’t feeling well.

Dear god!
How do you look for a cat
that doesn’t want to be found.
Could he really have gotten that sick?
