I got very scared and ran until I was lost. I didn’t know which way to turn and couldn’t find my way home.

I wandered the streets, but found everywhere different. I climbed fences, scaled walls and ran up the tallest tree. Home was nowhere in sight.

The gritty tarmac hurt my paws. Terror-struck, I ran across a fast road, hoping to find home. The sun came and went many times before a lady gave me some food and asked me inside. I stay with her now, but she doesn’t know my name is Spyro. 

I miss my own home.

Oh, poor Spyro. I’m glad he has a home, but I’m sad that he misses his old home … and his old name! Good story.

Such a sad story Carrie. I’ve read of cats returning home after many years so there is still hope Spyro will too. I love how you’ve written this from the cat’s p.o.v.

Poor Spyro! I hope he finds his way home again. This is such a bitter-sweet story. There is the happiness that he found a new home and is being looked after, but the sadness that he misses his old home. Great story.

This is a mixed emotion between sadness, happiness, and hope. A very nice story. How I wish Spyro will finally return to his old home.

How sad to know that Spyro was stolen on purpose. I know how you and your husband love Spyro. Do not worry, I am praying that Spyro will return to your family soon.

How sad, Carrie. Until I read the comments, I didn’t realize that Spyro was your own beloved cat. I do hope he returns.

While owners fret so, I guess the nature of the cat would be, I’m enjoying this walkabout holiday, new owners, plenty of petting, the foods different, I’ll stay awhile before moving on, and then I’ll go home looking ragged and tattered, and the joy of – oh! You poor cat where ever have you been?

I do hope you find Sypro! Your stories are just pure gold! They are filled with such emotion. Congratulations on yet again, another wonderful story.

How strange that grey/grey and white cats are “desirable”. What’s happens with those cats? Let’s hope that Spyro has a good home and that he didn’t have to go through some nasty experience.

It is a sad story, so I am sorry to read it is a true one.

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance.
