One down, one to go!
Cletus came home on his own the other night!
We heard some meowing outside around 10pm, went out with the flashlights assuming it was another stray, and there was Cleto. I called to him and he came right over to me and let me scoop him up. He was filthy dirty and after further examination I found that all of his claws were either down to nubs or torn out at the root. He chowed down on some food and couldn't seem to get enough water. Otherwise he was acting completely normal and like himself. He's pretty much been in bed ever since.
I'm so, so, so happy, and SURPRISED that he found his way back. So now I'm hoping Crawl does the same. We've still been out looking for him every night, and I'm still receiving phone calls from people who believe they've seen him, but I think they're seeing his stray twin who we mistook for him as well. We'll see how it goes. Tomorrow will be a week.
