The two darkest months of my life

All started as the humans decided they need holidays / vacations from me. Actually, I don't think they needed them from me, more likely they just needed them. “And what shall we do with The Cat?” They considered several possibilities and in the end decided to just leave me at home, alone, abandoned, neglected, starving, uncared for, pitying myself... [Oscar! We still feel guilty enough for what had happened, stop exaggerating!] Yes, Mommy.
So, my good humans thought it would be best for me to stay at home and people would come and feed me and play with me and take care of me. [That better, Mommy? Yes, and also more accurate, Oscar.] The first two days all was ok, the people would come and feed me and give me fresh water and play with me and also clean my litter box. When they would be gone, I would either have a snoozy-snoozy on the window sill or would go for a walk in the garden, via my cat flaps. Until day three, all was fine. And then all becomes dark...
Until today, I don't remember what had happened, Mommy and Daddy say I might have Amnesia!!! I only know, that suddenly I was not longer anymore at home. I was somewhere strange. I don't remember how I got there and where “there” was, but I know that I had enough to eat. But I don't know if I caught my food myself or if somebody fed me. The people in the village said that they say a black and white cat in the grounds of the haunted house, but I don't remember if I got trapped in the old haunted house. I remember nothing at all, that is why I call that time the two darkest months of my life ;-(

... A long time passed, and more time, and more...

My humans said, it was two long months that had passed. They were meanwhile back from holidays / vacations and had searched the whole county for me, to no avail! Suddenly, one evening, I found myself on our driveway, I also don't remember how I got there, I only remember crying for Mommy and Daddy. And I remember Daddy's voice: “That is Oscar, Oscar is back, Oscar is out there!” Mommy and Daddy came both to look for me, Daddy with a torch and Mommy with a box of kibble in her hand that she rattled the whole time. And they kept calling me, but I was scared, I don't know why, I was finally home, but I was scared and hid under the hedge. After 20min Mommy and Daddy had me coaxed out under the hedge and Mommy hold me very, very tight in her arms, and for the first time ever, I didn't object to be carried around!
Mommy and Daddy couldn't cuddle me enough that evening, boy, was that a love feast! And all my things were still there, they had never given up hope that I would come back! Oh, and they gave me tuna, and cuddled me, and checked me up. And they wondered because I looked well fed and groomed, perhaps the White Lady without head that is said to live in the old haunted house had taken care of me? They say Anne Boleyn loved cats!

That night I slept very, very close to Mommy and Daddy, I was so happy to be home again. The next morning I made an almighty racket because Mommy....

.....to be continued, tomorrow, with some more happy memories ;-)
