So, this past Tuesday morning, Hershey, the oldest of our two living cats, had a vet appointment and afterward he managed to escape from the car in the parking lot and run into a thicket. He's fearful by nature and he hates car rides and vet trips so when he bolted he just kept panicking and wouldn't come back when called. The thicket he escaped into has a busy highway at the bottom of the hill to the east and a lot of mountainous, coyote-inhabited woodland in every other direction.

We spent four days searching for Hershey, clearing the thicket, knocking on doors, putting up flyers and canvassing the woods. Someone finally called to report sighting him Friday night near their apartment complex up the street from the vet's office. We found Hershey hiding in the middle of a long drainage pipe beneath a driveway on undeveloped property.

Working with the caller, his neighbor and an Animal Control worker, it took us two hours to get Hershey out of that tunnel and into a little cage so we could bring him home safely. He was exhausted and terrified but once we coaxed him close enough to one end of the tunnel for Tab to grab him, he didn't resist or try to flee. He whined in his little cage during the car ride and I thought he would be traumatized and reclusive when we got home but it only took him about ten minutes to get his bearings from walking around the apartment. Then he was purring, eating, drinking water and gratefully lounging about his home, acting like himself.
