SILVER IS HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A family called from about a half mile away and told Greg they had seen our flyers last Saturday and found Silver in their yard today. I didn’t know that Greg had gotten a call. He didn’t tell me he had even left. But, then he called and said, “I have Silver!”

I couldn’t believe it! I called for the kids to come outside and we waited for Greg to drive back home. We were all so happy to see our sweet little kitty!!!


We have been enjoying a big, happy, joyous reunion this afternoon. Silver ate ravenously. I’m not sure if he has eaten in 9 days. He is purring and happy as can be, cuddling with everyone. He is very, very tired. His voice is a bit hoarse. But he doesn’t seem to have any illness or injuries. We are so very grateful.


Thank you all so much for your prayers! Your encouragement meant so much to me this past week. And Β most of all, we thank and praise You, Lord, for this wonderful miracle!

  10. That’s wonderful news! Thanks for sharing the lovely pics… the one of your two children with Silver in the middle with eyes closed…aw…so incredibly touching, brought me to tears… thank you God as He answered many prayers ..

  11. What an awesome God we serve. He had an angel keeping an eye on Silver until he could be reunited with your family. Wonderful news to hear

  12. Woke up this Sunday morning by a hand written note from my husband.. I was sure I could see the name Silver in it.. It was dark in the room and I thought I was seeing things!! But no, he had written it out for me to see first thing as I woke up.. SILVER IS HOME!! I found this so sweet.. All have been affected by beautiful Silver this week. And this wonderful return of him is just huge. I will keep my husbands note for always as a reminder of Gods faithfulness but it also made me smile from ear to ear, that he had written it out in a note! He is not a note writer, at all) SILVER IS HOME!! Thank you LORD! What a day!!

  13. Praise the Lord, April! Oh, I am so happy for you and your family that your beloved pet returned safely! God helps his servants, and He surely sees your desire to help other wives, that is why he is attentive to your needs also! πŸ™‚

  14. April, I don’t know the timeline, but I think you posted on how to give praise to God in the midst of trials right BEFORE Silver came home? If so, that is a testimony in itself. I have found in my own life that when I come to a spiritual truth in the midst of my own trials, change sometimes comes in that trial for my good.
    To God be the Glory! Happy for you:)

  15. Praise the Lord πŸ˜„πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜€
    I am so delighted for you and your family!!!!
    We have a beautiful ginger kitten named Tigger who we adore and I cannot imagine losing him so I understand your heartache when Silver went missing
    How wonderful is our God😊

  16. so glad for your family, rascal one of my favorite kitty cats was gone six weeks and came back, we found him it’s pretty neat hu!

  17. Im thrilled to hear about silver. I know this is off topic but can everyone please pray for healing for me. I have some sort of stomach bug ive been battling since tue & every day it seems to get worse. I went to the the dr yesterday & he said come back in 5 days than he will give me something otherwise let it take its course & let my body flush it out. I just feel terrible with dehydration setting in. Thanks in advance.

  18. Oh, praise God! Thank you, Jesus! April, I’m so happy for you & my family, and so thrilled to see the prayers all of us sent up answered! *dance*

  19. I had a feeling you would see your fur baby again! My Jazz did the same thing a few years ago. I know that joyous feeling. πŸ™‚ So happy for all if you and for Silver!

  20. As a guy, per your rules I refrain from commenting. But just wanted to say I am very happy you found Silver. We went through something similar with one of our cats, and know how hard it can be.

  21. Praise God!
    “For He that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is His name.” Luke 1:49
    Rejoicing with you!!!!!!!!!! :

  22. Prayed for this πŸ™‚ Thank you Lord, you keep us all in the palm of Your Hand including our pets. Our daughter also lost her new kitten recently and she was found as well. God bless you and keep up the lovely posts that I enjoy reading so much xx

  23. I was supposed to comment on this when I read the post, but I definitely said to myself when I saw the title “Thank you, God!”. I’m so happy that you all got Silver back and I hope he’s nice and comfortable with you all now!

  25. Hi April,

    I was so happy to read that Silver is back! Stories about cats touch me in ways that not much else does.

    I wanted to share a story with you that happened to me last week. I have been raised as a Christian, but have lost my way during my youth. Now, in my twenties, I am slowly finding my way back. Just like you, I really love cats and I have two of my own. My younger cat Nala loves to walk on the roof of the 5 story house we live in. We tried to stop her first but she always got away from us and since she always came back happy and there was no way for her to leave the roof, we let it happen.
    Well, last week she did not come back from her trip. I was so very tired, but I couldn’t sleep and went outside to look for her. I couldn`t find her anywhere and couldn’t spot her on the roof either. My boyfriend went outside as well with no result. The next morning, we started looking at 5 am, knowing that she would be scared if she was outside and wouldn’t come to us, so that we would have to find her. We looked everywhere. We walked for 20 kilometers through our neighbourhood, searching in every backyard, looking under every bush and tree, in our neighbours’ houses. We did not know if she was hurt or not, we did not know if she actually fell off the roof or where she could possibly be. Our entire neighbourhood (which is not considered to be a “desirable neighbourhood” in our town) knew about Nala and helped us in our search. I feared that we might never see her again. And this is when something happened, that I would never have thought. I felt as though God asked me “Will you trust me with what you love so much?” My mind was fighting back, thinking “I will never be okay if something happens to her”. But then my heart decided to trust and even though it was not easy at all and my mind was screaming at me “No” I decided to trust God with my cat, knowing that he cares so much about every creature that he loves her even more than I do. I decided to trust that God is good, even if something awful happens to this little cat that I love so much. Later that day (we were still searching, for 12 hours straight) I saw the most beautiful rainbow and I know it was a promise from God. Shortly after, we found our poor little scaredy cat, who hadn’t so much as a scratch, and could take her home. I will never forget how good God is and how he cares about me and everyone. Also, it opened my eyes yet again to see what a wonderful man I have by my side who took no rest to search for our cat and who lifted my spirit when I was feeling hopeless and sad.

    Thank you for your blog. It has been a tremendous help in finding my way back home to God!
