We've been concerned about the three cats we left in Italy since Christmas. We didn't have any news from Mario who has been feeding them and thought he might not be contacting us as he didn't have good news. We sent several emails and texts and about 10 days ago received a note to say our cat is now living at his house, at first I thought it said cats and was delighted but then realised it was cat singular. So we sent more messages asking which cat and if there were still others at our house being fed. Today we received a note to say Grigio one of the kittens is living with Mario and Theo the shy black older cat is at our house. That means Crema is missing.
Crema is a beautiful friendly girl and like the others a survivor. She may have been taken by someone, I can't imagine she would willingly leave her little family. We were told last year after Marzio who looked very much like her disappeared that people like white cats and he might have been taken. If she has a good home that's fine but we will definitely be searching the village when we return, which could be as soon as next month, to see if she is still around.
I won't post any photos, it makes me too sad, We knew we would be upset when we got more news but we had to know and the fact that two are safe and well isn't helping much today.
