Frank Went Missing

Oct. 13-20, 2010

How we missed Frank when he went on his walkabout. I spent hours walking the neighborhoods, the creeks, the parks, calling his name and stapling flyers to trees and telephone poles. We put ads on Craig's List and the Press Democrat, and followed up on random reports of orange tabbies all over Santa Rosa.

None of it made any difference. But just about the time we assumed he had moved onto greener pastures, he showed up one morning at 3:30 a.m., a new scar on his nose but not much worse for the wear.
