Lily is home!!!

A guy and his wife coming home from working night shift saw her up near the front of my neighborhood and called around 2:00 a.m. I'm a really deep sleeper and rarely wake up in the middle of the night, but for some reason I woke up tonight right after he called and left a VM. We got in the car and drove up there immediately and there she was in a storm drain. It took a few attempts but I was finally able to grab her. She's completely fine and not even dirty! She's eaten a can of food and some tuna and is now settling down to go to sleep.

I'm so thankful to the people who called. The guy had even put my number from the lost cat flyer in his phone to have it handy in case he saw her. I'm going to have to get them a gift card or something.

Just wanted to share the good news!

That is fantastic! What a great neighborhood you live in.

Years ago I took in a neighborhood stray. Patches was a shorthaired calico. She would sit for hours in front of the glass door. But whenever anyone approached the door she would run to the deepest, darkest corner of the house. I couldn't help but think that she had experienced the big bad world out there and was not going to take any chances of being out there again.

Lily was very wise to pick your family.

just a nod to you and your SO as well as the neighbor couple...it takes a village to raise a cat as well!

Yay! What a great neighbour . It's not easy to call anyone at 2am for any reason. So glad you could then catch her. I'm sure Lily will sleep for quite a long time. Can we have another pic?

Btw, I don't know if she posted but Souxieque also found Blanche. Good news all around.

You must be so relieved. I also was wondering about the sweet little gray kitty.

Wow. I got goose bumps reading your post!

Did she get stuck in the storm drain? Do you think she'd been in there the entire time she was missing?

I wouldn't be letting her out of my sight for many weeks to come.

SOOO glad she is home. Whew.

No, I don't think she was stuck in the drain because she popped right out when I called her. I think she was just hiding in there. The guy said when he first saw her she was across the street from the drain in the tall grass in a vacant lot. Good thing she had just gotten a flea/tick treatment before her escape.
