Kitties, it was awful.
Donkey disappeared for all night and most of the day. We looked the house over for him. It would have been horrible if he had gone and certainly if he had not warned us. that something was amiss. He hadn't even left a NOTE Kitties!
We were getting VERY concerned as to 1. His safety (had he been kidnapped??) and 2. Had he gone away from us over something we could have remedied easily had we known?
We wrung our hands and paws and searched and searched the same places over again.
Then, Mom happened to see a glimpse of black mane and a bit of gray body. It was DONKEY! OH fank the codfish! It was Donkey and he was alright. He had not gone off and left us nor was he kidnapped and he was uninjured as far as we know. He was jammed back behind a base speaker between it and the wall. It was dark behind there. He had to have been frightened.
Tonight I will make it up to him and have him up in there in bed with us. He must have made a wrong turn at Albuquerque on his own way in.
Good night Moosey, Romeo and Georgie. I will see you again by and by. Wait for us. Oh! Your stars are brilliant, little loves.
