missing kitty

My cat, Nala, is missing. *sigh* Add that to the list, “Things to be Depressed About.” I’m hoping someone just picked her up, and she didn’t get run over or attacked by a wild animal. I called the animer shelter and the nearby vet (where I usually take her, and where I’m supposed to get her spayed next week), but haven’t heard anything yet. I’m not extremely attached to her, and won’t break down in tears or anything. If she’s happy with another family, that’s fine – I just don’t want her to be hurt. And I don’t want to go through this again with another cat – getting used to it, getting all it’s shots, etc. I keep hoping she’ll show up on the front step, but every morning there’s no sign of her.
