weather: sunny
outside: 13°C
mood: crushed
Thanks for all your support and kind words.

We spent all Sunday sticking up posters and went door to door around our neighbourhood handing out a b&w printout of the same poster.

We got a lot of kind words from everyone, a lot of advice as to what we can do to help Guai-Guai find his way home. People have trees and bird feeders in their yards, so some of them get a lot of birds in their yard. They said they'd keep an eye out for him.

They told us to put his cage outside. And to play a recording of his chirping so he might recognize it and follow the sound home. We also talked to the people at the Bloedel Conservatory at Queen Elizabeth Park because they have an aviary/bird sanctuary and people will bring found birds to them sometimes.

We got an ad in a local paper for wider distribution.

But.

This afternoon, Husband got a call from a lady who said she saw a large hawk-like bird flying overhead with a smaller bird struggling in its mouth that sort of fit the description of Guai-Guai (from a distance, he looks white and he _is_ a house bird, so he'd be dumber than the other animals at escaping).

I'm a mess right now. I'm glad I have an office with a door.

I would have gone home if it weren't for this potentially huge news about my project that could have me in New York on business in the next few weeks. Which means I have a lot to do here. It's supposed to be a great opportunity, good-exciting, good-scary, role promotion thing for me. But I just can't find it in me to be too happy about it right now.

I'm so sorry to read about the bird!
I can only imagine what you and your husband are going through. I can't imagine having Chuckie get lost and not know where he was - I would be devastated! I hope all your hard work putting out pictures and the word brings Guai-Guai home. . .

Oh man, I hope the description was wrong. I know if either of my kitties were lost I would not know what to do with myself! Here's to hoping Guai-Guai comes home soon.

I hope the description was wrong. It was from a distance, so it is more than likely that it was.


...If you're going to be in NY for business, I'd love to meet up for a cup of tea if you were free. I'd also be happy to help you find things to do/a hotel/your way around.

Hard to find anything inspirational or comforting to say. You're in my thoughts.

I hope he comes back to you... Maybe those signs of home will help and bring him back. Although the thought of him homing back to his own voice is kind of odd...

:(

Robin's favorite cat from home disappeared one day after they let her outside. The neighbors said they saw a patch of black fur on the ground... the coyotes likely got her.

The situation just plain sucks, I'm sorry.

*ugh* We have coyotes here too. It's the most disturbing sound when they catch something and proceed to yap in victory. ={

I just don't know what to say. I cannot imagine what you are going through. I hope the report was wrong and he comes home.
