Yesterday, the good; today, the bad

Poor Soëlie spent yesterday afternoon throwing up.  Not just spit up, but serious spewing that continued until she was throwing up only the water we were giving her to keep her hydrated.  She was fine otherwise--no fever and was smiley and playing--so we didn't call the doctor.  She seems to be fine today, just a little tired.

And now the news that has tears not far from falling and my stomach in knots. Our little kitty, N'djema, whom we rescued in Mayotte, is missing.  The neighbor who fed our cats while we were gone on holidays hasn't seen her since Monday.  I called the two local vets, and neither has had anyone bring her in.  There is an elderly lady who lives down the street whom N'djema likes to visit, and Julien has passed by her house three times now to see if maybe she our kitty with her, but so far he hasn't been able to find the lady home.

This afternoon, we'll go asking up and down the street and put up a Missing poster at the city hall and bakery (if they let us).  It is a tiny village where we live, and most people know the three-legged mite belongs to us.  Now that we are home, I'm hoping that, if someone has her, they will let her come back to us.

I hope nothing bad happened to her....


"Lost" posters up at the school, bakery, city hall, and on our mailbox.  Spoke to several villagers; no one has seen her... I'm hoping, though, that people will talk or the posters will do their work and we'll hear something soon.

In the meantime, poor Tiboy, our only remaining cat, is traumatized. He insists on being beside us and wails when we leave his sight.
