Getting it out in the open

Going to go a little off the beaten path here.  I have been trying to write more about the things that go on in my life here other than hockey.  Besides, there is more to life than hockey right?  Ok, just checking.

The night before last, one of our indoor cats got outside.  After looking all over the neighborhood, I could not locate it.  Yesterday morning, we found it under our porch, but were unsuccessful in getting it to come out.  It ran off into the forest behind our house, and we haven’t seen it since.  Now, where am I going with this?  Quite frankly, I have mixed feelings about this.  My wife is more broken up over this, that is for sure.  However, my feelings are bouncing all over the place.  At first, I felt bad and maybe a little pity for the cat.  It has no claws, and it has been rainy and cold the last few nights.  I have taken time to look for it, with no luck.  We set live traps up with tuna and wet cat food, with no luck on that end either.  This morning, I fear it is dead, but it is hard not to have hope.

Maybe this cat rubbed a little more off on me than I anticipated.
