The Bob has returned... Brian heard him mewling behind some bales of hay, as if Bob was caught in the wall... Carried to the house, he ate like a feline asphalt demolisher and has gone for a catnap. His communications were spotty and difficult, but he kept trying.
Angeni is thrilled... The Momma Kat is ecstatic... and Dad the Rescue Hero is the man of the hour...
Brian will be the first to complain when Bob wakes him up at 3 AM to go back out, but Bob is the cat who joins him in shamanic journeys... perhaps there is a soft spot there.
The spirit of the house sparkles again.
