Excellent news!  We found our cat. He was in someone’s barn for about a week and a half and he started going onto their porch and even into their laundry room.  We got a call Thursday night that they thought it might be the little cat we were looking for.  We flew over and call his name and he eventually came out to us.  He’s a little thin, a little nervous but a lot happy (I guess everyone is after that episode) Thank you so much for your reassuring words.  He was safe and sound and came out when he was ready to just as you had said.  We are very grateful to you!
