Please, if you read this, please please leave a comment about what you make of this. I would greatly appreciate ANY insight anyone has to offer.
So, if you haven't yet, go back and read the post I wrote a couple posts back about my conversation with the psychic on Friday night.
Okay. This morning Matt gets a phone call. It's a guy saying he's standing outside by our lost cat poster and says there is an envelope tacked to the pole under the poster. Matt opens the apartment door and the guy calling him is standing on the corner in front of our building. He goes and grabs the envelope and brings it upstairs and hands it to me. There is a computer-written, unsigned note inside that said exactly this:
"To Benjamin's Family
Benjamin was found near here in physical distress. He was vomiting and his breathing was not normal. He had no tag or collar, and so was thought to be a stray.
He was taken and cared for, but his condition was severe and he did not live. Please know that he was held and comforted in the most tender way, and did not die alone.
We are very sorry for your loss."
No way at all to identify who left this. Also, it was left at some point between about 11:30 last night and about 7:00 this morning.
We have run this over and over and over in our heads and it just doesn't make sense at all to us. I contacted the psychic and she told us that the person who has him wants us to stop looking for him and it doesn't feel truthful at all.
Interestingly, we ran the note by other people who don't at all believe in psychics, but absolutely think the note wasn't truthful, as well. Of course, some of our friends did think it was genuine. Most people thought the note was strange, however, and just didn't think it made sense that the person who left the note didn't call us, didn't try to contact us when our cat was found (we had flyers up within 12 hours of him going missing and he wasn't sick when he went missing). It is all so bizarre.
Matt and I are very angry about it. We want to get to the bottom of who left this for us and I believe we will. I've started contacting people to help us and although I may get laughed at, I'm going to the police, as well.
Wish us luck. And pass alone advice or any thoughts you have. Seriously, any words of wisdom help at this point.
