Shiro has been found!!! My former karate instructor, whom I phoned the night Shiro went missing just in case he happened to see him, spotted Shiro and kept him occupied with some bologna (yes, the way to Shiro's heart is food sometimes) until my Mom could drive over and pick him up. Reports from my family indicate that Shiro is doing just fine- he is not shaking like he's cold, he's not acting like he's hungry, he's not even dirtier than usual. Upon returning home, Akira and Shiro were excited to be reuninted, Shiro drank some water, then hopped up to his favorite resting spot on the couch to take a well-deserved nap! I wonder what he's been up to since Saturday night? I'm sure glad he's back, though, and looking forward to seeing him with my own eyes this weekend.
Thanks for everything pals: spreading the word, encouragement, wishes, prayers, etc. We sure appreciate it!
