Help Please **9:30 pm Still Nothing

I completely believe in the power of prayer. That's why I'm asking for some. My beloved Griffey has run away. I let him out to go potty at 6am. I filled his food and water dish and stepped out to watch him but he was gone. Just like that. I don't know what's gotten into him. He's usually really good about staying in the yard. But he did this on Friday too. I found him on the next block then and swore I was getting an invisible fence. But I'm supposed to go to NYC on Thursday and won't have time to do it until I get back. I've been looking all over the neighborhood for the last hour. I can't find him. I came home to print out some pictures of him and wait until the sun came up so I could see better. I'm beside myself but trying to hold it together. Please please pray that I find my boy. He's been my baby for the last 7 years.

*** I've been searching for 8 hours. No sign of him. I've got posters all over the neighborhood with his picture on it. And the Animal Shelter has my cell phone number. He has a collar and tags so I'm praying that someone either calls me or the shelter. I'm resting for a bit cuz my head is splitting, I haven't eaten or had a shower. But I'll go back out this evening and try some more. Thanks for the postive vibes and prayers. Please let them work.
I can't stop crying.

***I went back out this evening. I just got home. It's too dark to keep looking. I think I hung a hundred flyers. I offered a reward on the flyer. I told every kid in the neighborhood I'd give them $20 bucks if they found him. So there were bike posse's looking for him all over, too. Which was good cuz a lot of people I saw out said they'd already seen his picture and heard about him from the kids. But bad cuz nobody's seen him. I'm going to leave flyers at a bunch of vet offices tomorrow and put an ad in the paper. I'm hoping someone has him but was unable to get through at the Animal Shelter cuz of the holiday and will just call in tomorrow when they open back up. I'm really hoping on that one.

It's so hard to be home when he's not here. I'm not sure how I'm going to sleep tonight. My partner stopped by to check on me. I told him it would've been easier to lose Griffey to an illness. Cuz not knowing where he is is tearing me up. It was 90 degrees again here today. What if he didn't have any water all day? I'm so worried that he's scared and lost. Now it's dark out. I'm terrified that he's hurt. He's been gone so long. Thanks for the support and prayers. If he comes home, I'll post it as soon as I can cuz I know many of you are worried about him, too.

Dear Krista, how terrible. My 16-year old cat suddenly disappeared this summer and I was sick and devastated. She was found alive after 3 (!) weeks. Don't lose hope! My prayers are for you and Griffey! Emmie from Europe (LID June 2006)

Liene said...

Hopefully you'll find him soon Krista. I could not imagine what it would be like to lose any of my 3 animals. The dogs are micro-chipped but the cat is not. But I'm sure your heart is breaking and you are extremely worried. I'm sure you'll also have a really hard time getting any sleep tonight.

I hope you find him tomorrow.

wzgirl said...

Oh no! No! Krista! Of course I'll be sending prayers for you and Griffey. Ohmygosh! I'm asking the lost puppy angels to guide him back to his most excellent home and Mommy.

XO

I'd be a wreck, too. I'm so sorry, Krista!!! I hope all your hard work pays off and he's home with you very, very soon.

Krista,

His animal instincts will kick in. He will find water. I'm hoping someone has him in their house and will call the shelter/vet/you tomorrow. I'll be checking in for the update. Hang in there. Try and get some sleep.

Tiffany

wzgirl said...

Ooo! I had my fingers crossed when I saw your update. Drat. They will stay crossed, though, Krista.

Thinking about you and your wee guy. XO

Abby's Mom said...

I'm so sorry Krista! I believe in the power of prayer too and am sending many your and Grffeys way. I also believe that people are good and I'll bet you somebody has him and is giving him lots of love until they can help him find his way back to you. Hang in there!!

Also maybe you could pay those kids to put a flyer on as many doors around you as possible?

"M" said...

Oh Krista, my heart goes out to you. I can only imagine how much panic you are feeling. You guys will be in my thoughts and prayers. Home good news comes soon.

Drea said...

OMG Krista! I have been lurking around all the time, but had to post! I had two fur babies and I know how you must feel, please please believe that someone will find him and contact a shelter and find you! I know that I found a dog once and kept him the night until I could get a call in to the shelter, so hopefully thats the case, someone has him and is just waiting till they can get him back in touch! I can't even imagine what you are going through! Hang in there, and I'll be adding him and you to the prayers for sure!

I just woke up and the first thing I wanted to do was to check on you. I am so sorry that you have not found him and I know it must be so hard to know he is out there.
He's such a cutie that someone must have him and is waiting to cacll today. I'll keep holding you in my thoughts.

Catherine said...

Praying that you'll get Griffey back today now that the vets office is open again.

Praying for you Krista.

Noemi said...

I was so wishing to see that you found him. I will keep you and Griffey in my prayers. Hopefully you will hear from someone today!

kris said...

Oh Krista... man I'm so hoping you see his face TODAY. Can't stop thinking about you. I've been in this exact situation... with a cat from when I was a kid. He found his way home though, a family thought he was stray and took him in (we were bad, no tags). Hang in there girl. XOXOXOX0.
