Asking for purrs and good thoughts

I can't believe I'm writing this post. Tucker escaped from the house last night and is missing. As an old guy, he sleeps a lot and I assumed he was sleeping in his carrier like he often does. I think he slipped outside when I took out the trash, but I never saw or heard him.

Jim and I canvassed the neighborhood, passed out flyers, talked to people, until nearly midnight. Jim went out afterward on his bike until nearly 1.Then we were up at 6, catching neighbors as they left for work and searching again.

I've filed a report with the local humane society, called my vet, posted on craigslist. I've cried for hours and am crying again, for the guilt, the pain, the worry. Oh Tucker kitty, please come home. 

We'd sure appreciate any good thoughts and purrs to bring him home. I never imagined this would happen and it seems so surreal. Going to sign off now. . .

Oh no! One of the cats that came before us got out one night and the mom and dad were frantic looking for him. Check under every bush, tree, anywhere he might hide.

We won't stop purring until he is safely back home.

We are purring HARD that Tucker comes home safe and soon NOW. We can well imagine you're beside yourself. Paws crossed; we think you're doing everything possible!

We're sure you are, but double check every spot, even the obvious ones or ones that are close to the house. He couldn't be stuck somewhere, could he?

Sending universal Light!!!

Oh no! I am purring like crazy for Tucker to come home. He must be disoriented, being outside. Maybe our collective energy will help him find his way back.
