fuck twitter, livejournal is where it's at

i just got back from distributing fliers door to door. half the neighborhood think i'm british. the only way i could talk to people without losing my shit was to use a comedienne's accent to talk to them. one guy acted like he was going to go out and hunt for jack. one woman gave me a hug.

doc's on his way to the shelter. there were three new jack cats in the email last night. so he's going to go check on them. i don't envy him this task.

much later . . .

the fliers are starting to work. we got a call from a woman who has a shed where many cats hang out. i will go over there tomorrow. and my UPS guy called, he's seen our fliers and he saw that a cat was found along his route, so he's going to get more information tomorrow for us.

no jacks in the shelter. he has a twin, though. long nose and everything. even reacted to doc. but he didn't have the secret mark. the one thing we kept out of the flier was a small detail about a mark he has. we'll use it when we get the call to see if it's the right cat.

doc wasn't as torn up today after the shelter visit. he's doing the other one tomorrow, though. he couldn't handle them both today. i went out at sunset so he could sleep. i want him to go to work tonight, he's got to start functioning again.

i'll go back out at dawn with jack's treats and laser pointer. i end up walking home crying my eyes out. tonight when i went out, i got lost but somehow made it home. i don't understand how, but i did.

i found a park, and wandered it looking for jack. nice little park. no jack. not as nice a park.

i should try to get some sleep. maybe i'll take a bath. it would be nice to stay up for NCIS. but i don't think i can.

"i am in love and always will be"

i'm relaxing. i couldn't sleep, so i took a hot bath. doc is asleep, preparing for work tonight. i'm going to bed as soon as i can. i could go to sleep now. but it's too late. he'll be up in an hour and a half. and i know i'll sleep longer than that, and i can't count on the alarm clock we're using to wake me up. it wakes him up, which is all that matters.

i'm taking time out. i'm not surfing any lost pet sites or posting on any right now. i'm just trying to chill the fuck out. i met some great people today. one guy acted like he was going to actively look for jack. i was thrilled.

back to my jacket. i've decided which jacket to get, what size and where from. all i have to do is save the money. i can probably save half this month and the other half next month. or things may work out that i can get it this month. before winter ends. heh.

bagira is making himself at home slowly. right now he's playing cupboards. he comes out during the day now. he likes to sit at the window. he'll be on cam a lot. we have the private surveillance set up, with the picture on the monitor across the room. it will not be the most interesting when it's broadcasting, but it can share the image. and you guys can report sightings of strays to me. i do sleep some time.

back to bagira. his purr is so loud. i'm going to try to record it one day. he's so soft and fat. and he's friendly as all get out. he doesn't fight with the other cats. the hisses he lets out are more of a, "i don't know you, that scares me" than anything else. simon is jealous. but simon can deal with it. he owns my room. he gets me at bed time. and i go in during the day and play with and pet him. he and bagira got into it tonight, but nothing came of it except some noise and maybe a baff upside the head.

leeloo hasn't been eating soft food since jack left, and she gets up in the kitchen window, which we keep open, and cries out the window. but it all means she's not getting her medication and i don't know what to do about it. i've tried all kinds of food. i have one more to try, then i guess i start pilling her. felix sits in the window and cries, too. it's so sad to see them miss jack. we keep hoping when felix goes out, that he finds jack and leads him home.

maybe this UPS lead will pan out. i hope so.
