Weeks passed yet he never returned. There I fretted, asking both mom and dad if they did something bad that hurt him, making him leave the house. However, I saw no signs of abuse from my parents because since then they've been so kind, patient and considerate to my cat no matter how mischievous he is.
Our hope had lessened on waiting and looking for something that was nowhere to be found. And so we thought, he might be dead already.
