Lulu's been missing since Sunday, September 30. Sarah's been walking the neighborhood with the devotion of a missing sea captain's wife, taping posters to telephone poles and crying when the rain wilts them to the gutter. Today, animal control called with a possible lead--a little black kitty, badly injured, delivered to Carkeek Animal Hospital.
I put the cat carrier in silver bike basket and rode uphill to 6th and Holman. After waiting nervously in an empty examining room, I was led to a wall of cages where a banged-up kitty with shaved head, draining abscess over eye, and garlands of snot hanging from her nose sneezed and purred when the vet picked her up. It wasn't Lulu, but I fell in love anyway and started dreaming of adoption. Whether you're in a NYC cubicle, Chicago condo, or Houston subdivision, please print and hang this poster as a kind of prayer that might guide Lulu home. We miss her. lumpy
