Okay, this is kind of silly. I doubt that anyone will find her through this post on tumblr, but it’s the only place I haven’t invaded with my “lost posters.” Therefore, in a matter of desperation, I decided to open this.
Let me explain to you how important this cat is to me. As many of my followers know, I am a schizophrenic who isn’t taking medicine. I hear voices that aren’t there, I see things that aren’t there. My disposition is a distant one, I’m antisocial, my personal hygiene is something I don’t care about, and I honestly don’t give a shit about what people think of me or what happens to me. This cat, Ritsuka, came into my life a year ago after my step-dad found her mother dead beside a kitten (which was my aforementioned lost cat). We took the cat in as a family member a few weeks after our very old cat, Korean, passed away from kidney stones (we couldn’t afford the immediate $4,000 payment). Korean was a special cat to me, but he wasn’t my cat. In comes this black kitten who runs to me. I sat with it, entranced, and bonded with it for hours. Ever since then, my cat has grown with me. She sleeps on a black pillow next to mine. She answers to a specific call that I have given her.
Though, the best part about her was the way she seemed to battle off hallucinations. Every time I’m with her, they fizz from existence - because I have something that I legitimately care about and to pay attention to. Last year, actually, the voices told me “kill yourself, kill yourself.” They wouldn’t stop. Out of impulse, I probably would have done it. But when I found a ‘cure,’ I didn’t find need for medication or self-harm. So I’ve never done it.
The cat is gone now. My heart is shattered. I refuse medication. I want my cat back.

It’s like losing my child. Pet detectives cost $150 at least, and I don’t have that on me.
