I took this photo of Rupert shortly before leaving for Edmonton. He used to take full advantage of the ladder we had leaning against the back of our house in order to sun himself. While I was away the weather warmed up and Rupert suddenly disappeared. Was he out chasing field mice (is that what strays do?)? Not only has Rupert disappeared but all the stray cats that used to roam the alley seem to also be gone. Did someone round them all up and escort them out of town (or worse)?
I miss Rupert.
