Hello Annette, Thank you so much for the uplifting call yesterday what a fantastic day! It's amazing how quickly the heart can be lifted! As I'm writing you, I'm contentedly working from my home office, my 15-pound orange tabby Lance (nicknamed Lancey Pantsy) on the couch sleeping, and dear Chickpea on the floor next to me snoozing away. Chicky-P has been affectionate since his arrival back home, and I slept peacefully last night for the first time in SEVENTEEN DAYS, little Chickpea curled up on my chest!
On the advice of my wonderful cat sitter Trudy, I contacted Annette when my three year old indoor cat Grace recently escaped into the real outdoor world. From my first phone call with Annette I could feel that she was concerned, experienced and connected. She asked lots of questions and listened carefully to the whole story and to Grace's history. Annette was as committed as I was to helping Grace to find her way home safely and quickly. As Annette said upon her return, "Grace has a mind of her own" so we had some challenges but she really helped me believe that Grace was safe and close by and just plain scared. Annette made a very traumatic week of my life much more manageable and both Grace and I felt her support and we all produced a happy ending. Thank you again Annette.

Hi Annette, It's been such a long time, but I wanted to update you on Iris, who you helped to bring home in 2006. It's been 4 years, but I don't think she has ever forgotten her winter adventure away from home. This past winter, every time she went out to the yard when I called them back in, she followed right behind my heels instead of walking ahead. A real first for her. Every February, I tell her the story of her escape, and the 7 days of anguish and searching that we spent. I also remind her that you had quite a bit to do with her return.
I appreciate the work you do, and thank God for the help you gave us in bringing her home.
