Update: Jelly Bean no longer missing :)
Early this evening I got a phone call from a woman who lives uphill from me, across the highway on a small side street. A cat had shown up a day or so ago, and, while it wouldn't come to them, it clearly wanted to be nearby. They provided warm water and food, and a dry sheltered place to sleep. Today, their daughter, who is one of our librarians, told them about my notice. When they saw the photo, they gave me a call. It was indeed JellyBean, and my prayers were answered: someone had given her what she needed to survive. Bless them. JB is now home, snuggled against my shoulder after checking the house out, and warming herself by the fire. I am so relieved, and so grateful.
