Got an odd phone call, from someone who didn't identify themselves, didn't ask about the reward, and said they saw our cat on the street. After Pat and I walked the block to no avail, I called the number back and left a voicemail ...then later, this text:

"I got a call from this number, sounded like a child, about our lost cat on Candlewood. Were you the person who saw her, by chance?"

About 80 minutes later, I got this reply:

"No its not me probly another child with the same number"

I am starting to think that a local kid wants to make our cat his very own, and is trying to wave me off looking for her further. This is ...not going to play out the way the kid wants, if I'm assessing the situation correctly. But I was very amused by the text message :>

Seems that the kid leaving messages about our cat was making up stories to amuse himself and his friends. Rachal spent some time this afternoon being told that Lav had been shot and left floating in the pool. No, wait, Lav had made it down to Houston and was about to die from exhaustion. No, wait...

When Rachal offered to send them a check to cover the expense of shipping us her body, the kids on the other end got really excited, until she asked for an address to write on the envelope. Then they hung up.

We're no closer to finding Lav than we were, and I'm fantasizing about punching a child in the face.
