sorry it's a bit dark, but you know, they're supposed to be in a darkish place. BUT HERE THEY KIND OF ARE

Final update in the Merlin the Cat saga! We found her! Here she is, nomming as soon as she got back:



So, yesterday I made up a bunch of posters and fliers that I put up on poles and dropped off in people's mailboxes. I didn't get all the mailboxes on our street last night so today, Ola and I went to a side street and to do the rest of our street as well. As we were nearing our house, there were still loads of mailboxes to leave stuff in but we only had like 4 fliers left. I saw a guy repairing his car so I went over to him and handed him a flier and he was all "Oh my wife feeds strays! I'll let her know!"

10min later, I get a call from this woman (let's call her EPIC AWESOME LADY) and Epic Awesome Lady asks me more questions about Merlin and how to get her to approach you and stuff, her specific colouring, she tells me she'll keep an eye out, we hang up.

15 min after that, I get another call from her and she's a bit frantic going "Klaudia, come quick! She's here!" So I like tubmle out my front door carrying things that might help me catch Merlin (which turn out to be unnecessary because Epic Awesome Lady has all the cat things) and off I run. Merlin was under the back porch of the neighbours whose backyard touched that of Epic Awesome Lady and her hubby, and he's the one who initially spotted Merlz and she's the one who recognized her. Epic Awesome Lady lured Merlin in with treats, I grabbed her, she's home now, sleeping.

THE END.

What I learned: I'm going to get Merlin and Chipmunk spayed and registered ASAP so that we don't have problems like this anymore.

Thanks for being so epically and awesomely supportive and I shall resume my previously fannish entries and maybe even catch up on my flist...maybe. ♥
So, after spending all of yesterday bawling my eyes out and cursing my stepdad, I talked to my stepbro who actually knew which shelter stepdad dropped Merls off at.

I called them and his name wasn't ion the list, but in case someone else had dropped her off, I decided to go down there (it was waaaaay out of the way). And Merlin wasn't there and I talked to the nice ladies and got some advice etc.

I was pretty furious at this point since none of it was adding up, so I called my stepdad for the 100000th time today and finally he just yelled that he didnt give her up but that she ran out on Wednesday night after beign put in a car by him for being too noisy during her heat. He just didn't want to have to look for her? Or worry Ola and Michelle?

So: stepdad is not necessarily a terrible person, just kind of a shitty ass parent (nothing new here).

I'm making LOST CAT fliers/posters right now to put up and drop off in mailboxes all over the neighbourhood.

I hope she comes back. Thank you all for your support, seriously, you've been so fantastic, I can't even begin to explain - your words of encouragement mean a lot ♥

If anyone has any advice/stories about cats who went missing while in heat - share, also tips on making effective posters? THANK YOU!
You guys have less than 9 hours to vote in the first day of The Island Hot People Poll Meme.

I'm gonna go watch HIMYM and 90210, and then read Cereus Blooms at Night and try to sort out my sleeping schedule 'cause right now it is NOT GOOD. Complete reversal.

SISTERS ARE BACK ON THURSDAY. It's been kind of nice without them, tbh, but I do miss the little rascals like whoa, as well.

Oh, here, lemme show you how Merlin likes to sleep best:



ETA: OMG YOU GUYS ARE YOU SERIOUS RN? KATIE TIED FOR WORST WITH GMK? Y U BREAK MY HEART, FLIST?!
