I am SO relieved! The stray cat in question was indeed playing a part in the whole fiasco. Around 24 hours after Juno had been let out of the house, Chris heard some noises that led us to discover Juno and the stray cat fighting on our back deck. I am praising and thanking God right now. I was very worried and emotional all day. Juno is unharmed, though hungry. There are fewer rodent-sized snacks in Long Beach than in Tahoe, after all. Thank you to anyone who joined us in prayer!
