SAFE AND SOUND!

 The elderly lady I mentioned in my last post did indeed have N'Djema.  She came by just now because we had asked someone who knows her to ask about our cat.  Sounds weird, I know, but she doesn't have a doorbell on her gate, and it was locked, preventing us from getting to her front door.  She wants to keep N'Djema and even after we said, "thanks, but we'd like to have her back," she kept talking about it...

But J just went with her to bring N'djema home. At least we know where to look now if eve she goes missing again.

Thanks for your good thoughts and concern.

Amazing and she knew N'Djema was yours. I've heard about this happening before, and I just don't know what to say. Well...I do, but that wouldn't include appropriate language.

Yes, she knew N'Djema is ours. We visited with her a couple of weeks ago, and she mentioned N'Djema coming to eat at her house--she feeds all the neighborhood cats--because the lady gives her lots of paté. N'Djema is not a stupid cat. o.O

N'Djema was catnapped!

But rescued, without even needing to pay a ransom. :D

Well, it would require a very gutsy old lady to ask for ransom from the young policeman and his American Amazon wife living just around the corner. :p

Bwahaha. I believe you make a very good point.

Yes! Always glad to let loose a big, loud Hurrah!

So glad to hear it! Some stories have happy endings.

Though, very strange about her trying just to take your cat.

Glad our story was one of the happy-ending ones.

I guess if ever, for some strange reason, we have to give N'Djema up, we know who will gladly take her in...

What a relief!

But I must say some cats feel entitled to use a village to keep the cat happy.

Yes, cats will definitely take advantage where they can!

Yeah, she acted really hurt and crestfallen when we said we'd like our cat back now, please. o.O So hurt that I actually felt a twinge of guilt...

Even though I rescued N'Djema with the intent of finding her another home, I can't imagine doing so now.

I'm consistently behind on LJ these days so didn't know she was missing. So glad you found her!

You'll probably like this story (after the commercial's over):

Aw, that brought tears to my eyes, especially to hear the cat purring in her arms.

Not at all what N'Djema did. She pouted quite a bit when J brought her home actually. With us, she doesn't get to spend the night inside and we don't allow her on the furniture. Nor does she get soft cat food twice a day... o.O

I know. I got all misty-eyed when the woman declared, "Now I have everything in the world!" as she stood in the ruins of her home. I understood completely.

p.s. Min could never live at your house. She'd have to give up her habit of sleeping in the warm sheets of my bed. :-D

I actually miss not letting the cats sleep with us, especially in winter. Tiboy looooooves to go under the covers and curl up next to you. Not so much fun was when he would knead my flank with his claws. :P Not to mention all the cat hair in the bed.

Oh yes, the cat hair! But I can see where it would be a problem to have the cats there along with Soelie.

Yeah, cats in bed + baby in bed = no good (and not enough room!)

Hmm. Now that she's tasted luxury, it may not be catnapping next time. . . reminds me of how Spencer has three houses he circulates around. The one where he's supposed to live, which has too much competition, the one across the street whose granddaughter thinks he is her cat when she visits, and us . . .where he almost has G brainwashed into letting him in.

Hehe. I fear you are right about N'djema's wavering loyalties, which is why I let her in at 6:50 this morning and fed her paté. :P

Bribery works both ways, indeed. And if N'djema likes to be outside, that may help, too - an outdoor cat can get really bored being forced to be inside.

Especially if the lady was actually not home so much that Julien went by three times and couldn't find her there. Though one might wonder about whether she was home and just not admitting it, if one were a suspicious, worrying type.

You know, like me.

Still, all's well for now. Especially for the pate-eating cat, one presumes. ;)

Yes, it was strange for her not to answer, especially considering that her front door was ajar. It is a small village, but her house is on the main road and that seems a bit strange...

All is definitely well for N'djema, except she still gets kicked out at night. ;)

Oh, hooray - I'm glad she is well.

Same here! The worst was imagining her trapped somewhere...
