Update from the Vet

Midnight tested negative for heartworm, Lyme, and Erlichea (sp?)--- rock and roll!

Our boy is HOME!

I picked Midnight up from the PG shelter and we went straight to the vet. He seems to be in fine shape-- a little underweight but not as much we expected, considering he's been eating who-knows-what for a MONTH! The vet did pull somewhere between 20 and 30 ticks off of him; he's being tested for heartworm and lyme, but we are thinking he's going to be okay.

He is sitting at my feet acting like a shepherd as I write this. All night he's been acting like he hasn't been gone at all, or more like, "Hey guys, what took you so long!?"

There will be pictures to come- promise! For now I'm busy cooking up some chicken and rice to fatten Bubba up!

Many many thanks to everyone who helped-- flyering, making calls, just thinking positive thoughts--- it's all very appreciated. We still really can't believe he's home. Unbelievable.


Midnight has been found!

Today marks the 1-month anniversary of Midnight's adoption, too.

Turns out Midnight has storm phobia. He got himself to Upper Marlboro, MD (or had some help getting there) and during the thunder storm on Saturday night, he tried to crawl into someone's house. The folks called animal control, and Midnight basically crawled into the officer's lap . . . the officer has visited Midnight at PG every day since then.

Midnight went to the vet today.

Thank you all so, so much for your help with this search! Pictures to come!

I hope, I hope, I hope

We're getting reports that Midnight may be at the PG shelter . . . but they are closed today, so we won't know for sure until tomorrow. We think it's about a 90% chance that he's there.

So, until tomorrow . . .

A New Neighborhood!

Thanks to some SERIOUS pet sleuthing by Irene, we've nailed down Midnight's new neighborhood-- Marshall Heights, SouthEast. The area is a mile or two northeast of Ft. Dupont Park. Irene was in the area today after 2 possible sightings and she found several people who had seen Midnight. BINGO!

The school (CW Harris Elem) security guard said that she has seen Midnight the past 3 mornings between 7 and 730. Charley and I can't make it down tomorrow, but will be there on Friday morning hoping for some luck. This weekend we will be down talking to neighbors, spreading the word and hoping to recruit people willing to try and lure Midnight into their fenced yards.

We would of course love some help. We are trying to get food and flyers down in the area. If you can help with either, please let us know!

Tons of new sightings

We have tons and tons of new sightings--details to come. Midnight seems to have left the park area and moved toward the CW Harris Elementary School. Are you near that area? Can you help us flyer there?

We need help

We have good news and bad. The good news is that we're getting some sightings of Midnight. The bad new is that he's still wandering around so we're playing catch up to figure out where he is. We need help getting more flyers up in the new areas where Midnight has been seen, and we need help setting up and monitoring feeding stations as we go.

Can you help? Know someone who can help? Want to help us raise funds for the search? We'd love to hear from you!

Please leave us a comment if you can help!
