I am really sad, it is cold tonight, around 10 degrees and I haven’t seen him since 10:30 this morning. It is very unusual for him to be gone for more than a couple hours and it snowed all day today anyway. Someone has been home all day so I know he didn’t come to the door wanting in. There are 2 options as I see it:
He got hit by a car and is dead
he got picked up by someone
option 2 has a few sub-options:
He lost his tags and is at the Humane Society
He lost his tags and someone decided to keep him
He has his tags and someone decided to keep him
He has his tags and someone decided not to bother calling me today.
I just wish I knew, I am having a lot of trouble going to sleep and I feel just sick. Last time he was gone like this he had been hit by a car and came limping home the next morning but he isn’t going to last all night out in this weather if he is injured. He has a limp (his last accident broke his leg and pelvis) so people who don’t know him are fond of taking him home and calling me very concerned. The most frustrating thing is that they are either in the same complex as I am or no more than 2 streets away and if they just left him alone he would come home (in fact, that is what I tell them to do-just put him outside and he’ll come home and he always has). I really hope nothing bad has happened to him and at the same time I hope I get some sort of closure if it has. Sigh. My kids are going to be up so early tomorrow and I need to go to sleep but I keep staying up, hoping I’ll hear him.
But I have got ds2’s sweater almost done while I have been up, just shaping the raglan on the last sleeve.
Dh is at work and somehow telling you all makes me feel like I am not sitting up alone waiting for Luca to come home. There needs to be a hug smilie…
