At the moment, Chester is living with my mother. The place here is just not friendly for him - there's an overgrown backyard out the back (we're in a house that's been split into two... and it's the other sides job to look after the backyard... they get to use it, we don't).
Anyway, there were ticks out there... and he even gave our daughter a tick... so I thought it was better if I de-ticked him then sent him to live with my mother until we move somewhere else.
Anyway, Mum told me she hasn't seen him since Monday night.
He's a cat, so I know it's natural for cats to wander... however, it's not natural for HIM to wander. He's such a lazy, sooky little homebody. He'll sometimes wander into neighbours gardens... and have a look around... but he ventures no further. He prefers to spend him time sleeping inside and meowing for more food (he's a pig).
I'm scared he's dead. He's about 5 1/2 so he's not old at all... I don't want him to be dead.
I hope he comes home, but I'm not counting on it... this is just SO out of character for him.
