Just had a call from the lady at Southfields and the cat came back again but it wsan't Fable, she was able to identify him better this time and this cat had white on his mouth whereas Fable doesn't. So we have another dead end and no idea where to look now.
Just before Fable went missing we had decided to get a companion for him as our other three lady furries are much older the youngest being 9. Anyway after much ado and toing and froing we have decided to get another kitten (or two). Our local rescue has dozens in need of a good home and we need a little kit to keep us upbeat. The depression that we have gone through has been horrible and we are not giving up on Fable before anyone thinks that, but we also know that we need to do this to maintain our sanity. Having spoken to the local rescue lady who listened to me crying my heart out for an hour, she agrees that we need to do this. She also went through all of the sightings with me and we agreed that the only positive ones were likely the ones two days after he went that were on the farm land at the bottom of our road. I camped out there every day for a week before having to go back to work and then spent every evening there for four weeks, it is only this week that we moved to a different area and still nothing. I don't know what to think about where he may be but when he comes home he will have a new friend waiting for him.
So, please keep Fable's return in your thoughts and keep fingers crossed also that we will be able to offer a home to a youngster in need.
Dawn, of course you can come and meet Fable when he comes back, if we get a kitten you can come meet him too if you like
Another point that came up when I was speaking to the rescue was the young kitten Bengal that we keep meeting on our search for Fable, I have been looking to see if anyone has lost one in the area through the registers but nothing so far. Many times people have called us thinking that it is Fable although he's nothing like him really. The rescue want me to get him scanned and then take him to them if he's not chipped as he does appear to be lost and all of the local farms have no idea who he belongs to. I am hopeful that the chap has a home that we can return him to or that he will at least be warm and safe if we have to give him to the rescue, he's such a friendly little chap.
I welcome all your thoughts on all of this
