When I woke up one morning, I realized Mindy was missing.
She didn’t come in for her regular spend the night and eat some kitty candy
Nor was she anyplace I could find her on the farm.
I meowed out at the barn,
I called by the Grain Bins,
I meowed and called and squalled in the hay stackyard.
I looked in Dad’s collector ‘parts’ cars,
I looked in all the grain trucks (there are three of them)
I walked down the corral fence and hollered constantly.
Then I went over into the orchard and meowed,
When I got back into the farmyard,
Mom was outside looking for Mindy also.
So, we both called.
After all that I knew.
But Mom kept calling for her for days and days,
Even going out at night (which she would NOT let go with her)
and called for Mindy
It’s lonely here without Mindy.
