Mina is back home!
We found Mina last night! 4 days out, after the big wind, rain, stress, Mina was seen by a lady on my street about 8 duplexes down. The lady was eating in her dining room and saw the cat at the bottom of the courtyard perched on a noise barrier. 2 days before I had showed her a picture of my cat and she called me. Mina was not able to come down. Looks like she had been scratched on the face but I think what saved her was that she still had her claws for climbing. I used the method each night saying her name at least 15 minutes. She heard me but could not get down.
I think a certain little boy must be very happy!
