I went Joanie searching again this morning and came across three grey tabbies that looked like her from afar. But it's not her. These were not afraid of me, and came close enough to eat the food I had placed on the ground.
The food I had left at the three spots yesterday evening had been eaten. I'd like to think it was Joanie who had come to eat it. I hope it is... I placed food there again, in those three spots.
I went inside the drains to search too, but she was no where to be found.
