MIA ~ Brown-Brown
We are pretty sure that we’ve lost one of our two outside cats … the youngest… Brown-Brown. She adores my DH and follows him everywhere. Every morning she waits for him by the gate and accompanies him to put Pepe, the LaMancha goat, into his pasture. Every evening she’s there to walk back with Pete and Pepe. It’s their daily ritual. She has a deep rumbly purr for such a little cat, and brings me almost daily presents … the kind you don’t want to step on barefoot. We tried for a year to keep her in the house, but she wanted none of it, only staying long enough to eat before begging to go outside. She was one of 4 cats we rescued … a Mom and three of her kittens. They were feral and living in a cave-like hole. The Mom, Sophie, was quite beautiful, but left the minute she could escape. Luckily, the kittens were eating solid food by then. DS now has Bella, one of the Calico twins, and we have Marble, the other Calico. Brown-Brown was the smallest and the most people-friendly, but was an outdoor girl from the start. She’s been gone a week now, and we miss her terribly. She never got to use the heated, outdoor cat house she’ll share with Precious, her roommate who is lost without her. Once before we had a cat go missing for over a week, only to turn up nonchalantly and without a scratch. We’re still hoping she’ll return to us.
