Summer of the Lost Animal teaches lesson about community and love

This is not a sob story about losing a cat. It’s a happy-ending about life and living. I can still feel the whole-body numbing pain of realizing my cat Bear wasn’t in the house. He was missing. He was gone. June 14, 2013, after picking up a flat of strawberries and my first morels, I
