Hugo was the best cat that our family has ever had. He loved being outdoors. It was not that often that he would come into the house. Unless the weather was unbearably cold or hot, he was outside.
It has been over a month since anyone has seen Hugo. It was summer and the kids had not even started school yet.
We have no idea what has happened to him. Did he run away and find another family? I don’t really think anyone could’ve taken him. He would’ve fought that. Did he take off to pass away? He was over 10 years old. I have heard that some animals will do that.
The last memories we have of him was coming into the house and making sure everyone gave him some attention. He would move from person to person and beg for petting, just like he does when his coat was shedding in the spring. This time didn’t feel like he was trying to accomplish that. He was being very lovable, which was not usually like him.
Then a few days later, poof, no more Hugo. We figured he was out roaming the neighborhood and would be back in two or three days. It was usual that he would disappear like that a few times a year. Still it’s two months later and no Hugo to be seen.
I have even had a few photo shoots in the yard. Hugo loved his photo taken. I think he may have been GQ model in a previous life or something. Every Time I would walk outside with my camera he would pop up, meow at me and pose. He also loved to photobomb.
