Molly lives with her brother Oscar and their Mom and Dad in Australia.  Molly is a gentle, home-body type cat who loves to be loved.  She and Oscar get along great, though Oscar teases her sometimes by staring at her until she gets grumpy about it.  She enjoys playing with toys, though not as much as Oscar does.  She was fascinated by a small lava lamp which contained glittery stuff and would sit and watch it for a long time.  Molly and Oscar were both indoor/outdoor cats, as both of them stuck around their own yard.  This all changed in March when Molly went missing.  Mom and Dad had let Molly out earlier, then went to a wedding.  When they left, Molly was sitting on the front porch, but didn't want to go inside.  When they got back, Molly was nowhere to be found.  My theory is that something really spooked her and she ran, then got lost.  She was gone for nine days, which was a nightmare for her family.  Oscar spent a lot of time sitting in the window, calling out to her.  Finally, Mom opened the front door to go out and Molly came streaking inside, heading straight for the food and water.  She was dehydrated and had lost a little weight, but was otherwise healthy.  Molly and Oscar are both strictly inside cats now, though both are now microchipped.

                                             Molly wanted to go for a stroll,
                                             But she got lost while on patrol.
                                                     She was gone nine days,
                                                     Which passed in a haze,
                                              Until she ran back through the door, safe and whole.
