As I was lying on my bed coughing furiously, Papa Jonathan jumped onto my bed. I grabbed him and wrapped him around as if he was a bolster like the good old days. Sensing that I was not feeling great, he gave out a soft purr. I looked into his eyes and whispered softly, “Jon, Daddy worried sick that Jess has gone missing for days. Do you know where Jess is?” Again Jon gave out a purr as if he understood what I had just said. He jumped down the bed and ran out of the house. I was angry at him because he does not even want to spend a few more minutes with me. Well, I can’t blame him too as that’s what a Tom cat will do, eat, sleep, play and had wild expeditions for days.

I just continue to rest my weak lifeless body as this flu bug is beginning to turn me into a zombie. An hour later, I dozed off. In my dream, I kept on hearing Mama Jess calling out my name. I must be hallucinating with the amount of flu medication that I had put into my body. Suddenly, I heard Jon shouted, “Open up the door Daddy. I have brought Jess back!” I woke up from my sleep and was staring blankly onto the wall. Am I dreaming or did I really hear my cats calling me? Thinking that I was dreaming, I went back to sleep. The call was now becoming so intense that it almost erupt my sound sensitive brains. I quickly jumped down from the bed, dragged my tired body down the stairways and walked straight towards the door.


To my surprise Jon was really calling out for me and there he brought home my much missed Jess. It was a miracle! I was wondering how my friends have searched every inches of the neighborhood but could not find her for days and it took Jon a matter of hours to drag Jess back home. Where was she hiding all the time? Why did she refuse to let us find her? Is she really on heat or was just trying to have some time off for caring for the babies? Frankly speaking, I still do not have any idea now.


Coming back to Jess, she was all wet and exhausted looking. She even lost her beautiful red necklace which I first gave her when she came into the family. She was dehydrated and hungry. It looked as though she had hurt her left eye too. I wanted to scold her for ignoring her duties as a mother but then that pathetic eyes of hers cooled me off. I guessed now she will need all the tender loving care from the family.


To Sassy whom had sent for prayers through the cat blogosphere for Jessica’s safe return, I personally thank you for your warm heart and kind thoughts. I would also like to personally thank Momo, who has been monitoring the news closely and giving me countless of encouragements. I hope SS will get her thesis done in no time. Karl oh Karl! Sorry to stop you from recovering fully from your hangover after the Cat Realm’s first blogoversary to worry about Jess’ disappearance. I appreciate the support and comfort. To Jan and a few more new found cat friends, thank you very much. To the rest of my cat friends, especially Mickey, Moe & Mindy and Daisy, who had left words of hope, thank you. All your prayers worked well. At least I will have the stress free mind to recover fast from this energy draining virus now.

We are all REALLY HAPPY that Mama Jessica is home. Yayyyyyyy! =)

I've had cats before who've gone missing and then returned after a few days - one on her own, the other shepherded home by his pal. In both cases, I was convinced they had gotten accidentally shut into someone's garage or garden shed. They were so hungry and thirsty - and both ended up at the v-e-t's for bites and scratches that were abscessing.

So ... are you all having a party or something to celebrate? That is, after you get over the flu??


Marilynn, Grace & Company


Rest now Momma Jess is home and safe and sound...and all will be well..
