Did I tell you our cat, Cinder, came back? He was missing about nine weeks. We thought he was a goner. But he came back a little scraggly, some white paint on him and very thin and hungry. We think maybe he was plowed/drifted in somewhere and was only able to get out when the snow melted. Glad he’s home, but he won’t come inside. He’s very freaked out. He does eat and is sleeping on clean, dry bedding in the doghouse, in the fenced yard.
