Well, I managed to get Art back home. Long story made short, I went to the local animal shelter to post a flyer, informing people that he was missing, only for the staff to take me back to see the animals, and find that on the very day he had escaped, the sheriff's department had found him, picked him up, and had taken him to there. Even now, Art's back home, lounging in my bed like nothing had happened.
Of course, it cost me $30 to get him out. Not to mention other expenses incurred while I was running around these past few days, trying to find him. Sigh...
Don't get me wrong, I love my pet and I'm glad to have him home. But I still can't help but be annoyed about what I've gone through because of his little stunt.
Anyway, I'm gonna get back to work on commissions and so on, and while I intend to stay in today and comfort Art, let him know he's safe and everything, I'm going out to see Ghostbusters in theaters tomorrow to treat myself. Because I've had a rotten time, and I think I deserve it.
I would like to take a moment to thank all of you who have been so supportive during this latest trial in my life. It really does mean a lot to me.
