Smokey came back last night. I was in my bed reading at about 9:30 when I heard a low "meow" outside my window. Since the boys were with me, I knew it wasn't them. So I went to the window, hoping to see Smokey, and there she was. Oh my God, was I overjoyed to see her. I went downstairs right away and brought her some food to eat. She was her regular self, all lovey, like nothing was any different.
This morning she was outside my window again. And she came for dinner tonight. I just love that girl. I wish having her inside had worked out better. At least she didn't get hurt going out the window.
Now, to work on her outside enclosure, again.
And thank you to all for your encouraging words and good thoughts. They are appreciated.
