LOOK WHO'S HOME!!!

I am doing the happy dance! Cheeto is home!!

I had convinced myself that he was gone forever, and then what did he do but show up at the back door tonight. He came inside and went straight to the food dish. He is thinner and he is very, very thirsty and hungry. He must've been locked in someone's garage like I initially thought.

After he gorged himself, he came and sat up on my lap and let me give him lots of ear scritches and head rubs. He purred and purred. I was so happy he was home that John hugged me while I cried.

Thank you all for your prayers. I know it helped bring him home. I know I kinda made fun of St. Joseph last night, but on a previous post, ~missprissme told me a prayer to St. Anthony and I recited it. Many times. I am not a religious person, but I believe that the powers that be know when you ask for something with all your heart. Thank you with all my heart.

I think I will let Cheeto sleep on the bed tonight.

See I told ya St. Anthony would come through and St, Joseph probably stepped in and helped bring Cheeto "home" ;). I think this was definitely a 2 Saint Job. Now if St. Anthony would just find my skinny body... I lost that about 20 years ago and never found it. I seriously cannot tell you how happy I am about bad Cheeto. You both look so happy. Bad kitty bad bad bad.
