She only goes out in our back yard which is protected with a 6 ft cedar fence. She is 7 yrs old and is very special to us. (I'm sure you all have special ones) She's a fair weather cat, she goes out in the back yard to sniff and play, and quickly comes back in. She is never out at night and never out alone. Today, we had a person come and powerwash our back deck and apparently Kiki was most likely out and about in the yard. Well, we haven't seen or heard her. She could be under the deck that was cleaned, and if you know how those monster powerwashers are they are noisy. She could be stuck under there, I don't know, I can't see under there. I'm calling and calling her. We lost her 4 years ago, under similar circumstances, and three days later during a thunderstorm, she was at the back door! It was like a miracle that she even came home, so I'm wishing she will do the same. My problem: my daughter is VERY ATTACHED to her. She has lots of problems in the depression, ocd area and I'm afraid this will mess her up big time. Everything was looking up for us until now. Please wish us luck in getting her safely home to us.
