Fuji has been found! Here’s a message that her owner would like to share in the hopes of helping others who are looking for their kitties :
Thanks to all of you for your efforts and holding the space with Concern, Love & Wisdom. Special thanks to Ken for sending the Go Home Fuji message; Wayne for sticking flyers in mailboxes after a long day of physical work… in our part of Montreal that means climbing up and down in numerous stairs, to Jody who made and tied catnip balls to my staircase etc. Each of you helped… and also distracted me which was a good thing.
Such an adventure…
Fuji has been missing since the night of July 1, though I did not find out till the next morning. I believe she slipped out as I was invoking five Archangels to visit me by opening the front door at 10:30 at night. Yesterday, I was exhausted after a day of trolling the streets and ruelles/alleys at 6:30 am, to meeting many kind people including the cat lady of Esplanade…who knew. I found myself making two hundred flyers of Fuji, postering all the light polls in the environs, putting her litter box at the stop of the stairs besides leaving my door ajar with food and water. I made one last effort last night before going to sleep and went downstairs to the front door… stood there calling Fuji’s name in the quiet of the night when I heard this repeated meowing… I stopped and listened, again called her name… she shouted her meows and came dashing up the stairs beside me… and I ushered her home, meaning up my inside stairs. We live on the third floor.
The night before I pulled a card from my answer deck that said Success (must publish the deck one day) and it took until last night at at almost the same time for Success to manifest. It is always challenging to be in situations where it appears we have no control. I could only make gestures to the universe and hope and trust Fuji would find her way home… the upside was I got to spend a lot of time outside, meet many kind and wonderful people. So I feel more connected to my neighbours, my world around me both visible and invisible.
Finding Fuji depended on Fuji. I knew from past experiences that cats have an incredible sense of smell. I was concerned for Fuji. She is an indoor kitty who has never tried to rush at the outside door, who was not streetwise at all. Fuji is a skittish, which meant she would probably be scared and hide, forever. (She is a very affectionate cat when relaxed.) She came home…looking well fed, with crumbs on her mouton. She was dusty dirty and even allowed me to wipe her down with a wet cloth. Fuji is home and all is well!!!! THE END. Now to take down the posters etc.
