to the fact that my beloved cat may be gone. Charlie is an indoor cat, who escaped from the house last Saturday. We haven't seen him since. We have fliers up, spoke with neighbors and filed a lost pet report with the Humane Society. There simply isn't anything more we can do. My dark suspicion is that he fell prey to a coyote, we are fairly rural. I am so glad that he wandered into my life 6 years ago, but the pain at his loss is incredible. He was my favorite pet, and I suspect that I will never feel a connection with another pet like I did with him. He was a pretty special beast.
