Of all of our cats, Edgar is my absolute favorite. He is the one who will lie on the bed with me all day if I have a migraine. He is the one who is a perfect angel to me but a little snot to Dave. I share my yogurt with him, and he loves the smell of peppermint tea and his toy, "Morty." His blanket sits on the foot of the bed and he is there most every night to sleep by me. He is such a good cat, and I affectionately refer to him as my "Edgar Baby."
Saturday night we gave Annabelle and Alex to my sister and almost-brother-in-law. We simply have too many cats and Alex was not adjusting well. Stephanie and Joe agreed to take them and provide them with a new home, one where Alex could get the attention he needs. That was very hard for me. We have had Alex since he was a kitten three and a half years ago. Apparently, it was also very hard for Edgar. Yesterday afternoon, after returning from running a couple of errands, Edgar made a dash out the door and ran away. I have not seen him since.
He is not allowed outdoors. He is not an outdoor cat. I hope he is all right. I miss him terribly.
