Because I know there are people who were worried…
The neighbors found their cat. They found it the same day they lost it. She was hiding under their own house.
Also they were out there trimming hedges on and off, for a couple of hours. It’s impossible to tell the difference so that’s … indicative of how overgrown it is over there.
So to recap: back door jungle still standing. Cat found and fine.
So all’s well that ends well!
