Default Chibi sighting???!!!

Chibi, my disappeared cat (as of Feb.), may have been seen by my
cousin's husband!

Chibi was my cousin's family's cat for three years; she was just a
bitty stray when she showed up with her (nursing) mother in their
yard. Their son finally got Chibi to come in. Anyway, they went back
to the States for a year and I took Chibi. Then, when they moved back
here, they couldn't find a place that took pets. So I kept Chibi.

Well, a couple of days ago the husband was walking to the grocery near
the train station, bus and taxi turnaround (center of town in Japanese
thinking; lots of shops) and saw a cat that looked just like Chibi,
except she was quite skinny. He called, "Chibi!" and the cat turned
around! Then she startled and ran away (but she used to do that with
him anyway unless he had crabsticks to feed her!) Anyway, their old
house (where Chibi had lived) is very close to there, but about two
miles from my house. I had no idea she would have traveled that far,
but it makes sense; the day she disappeared there was a big rain/wind
storm, and I can see how she might have run in somewhere for shelter,
got disoriented, and couldn't smell her way home, so went back to her
origins. Or, she could have taken shelter in someone's car and that
someone lived down there. We're going to start a new poster campaign
in that area now.

The more we think about this, the more sense it makes-- she came back
to her old home because she couldn't find her new one, the people in
the old home weren't the right ones, and since she is scared of people
in general, has been fending for herself in the area where there are
shops (thus, maybe, things to eat.) I went for a long walk in that
area today and there are plenty of bicycle parking racks and two
weeded areas, not to mention some small gardens and narrow alleyways
where a cat could easily hide. (And she was always good at hiding.)

Wow...

please rev up those purrs again!!!

I hope it is her and that she's caught! Wow, it's been practically
half a year.

Ooooh, I hope so, I hope, I hope!!! That would be such wonderful news.

Purrs from all 3 of my gang, but especially from Smudge, who knows how
it feels to be lost.
