This month starts off with some pretty upsetting news: my baby girl Argentina is missing. I let her out Monday morning with the other cats, and she hasn’t returned. I’ve put the litter box out, hoping that a familiar scent will help her find her way home. I’ve also put a bowl of cat food out for her. I’ve walked around the neighborhood calling her name, I’ve shaken the food container, and this morning I sat outside until 3 AM so she could catch my scent and hopefully come running. She didn’t. This evening I also put out a trap in case she comes lurking when no one’s around. And, of course, I’ve asked people on Facebook to keep their eyes open and contact me if they see her.
My main concern right now is the cold. It gets pretty cold here at night, and I worry that she might freeze to death if she can’t find a warm place. I also worry that someone accidentally – or purposely, because people can be dicks and we all know it – hit her with their car, or that they might abuse/torture her for fun (again: lots of horrible people in this world). Maybe I’m just being paranoid, but then again, what if I’m not?
If I have any readers located in Gol, please keep your eyes open and don’t hesitate to contact me if you see her. I live in sentrumsvegen, close to Rema, ByggTeam / BoligPartner and Gol Bakeri. I used to live in Tuppeskogen/Langfaret, so she might have tried finding her way back to my old apartment. Below are some photos of her.
