Thank you all for your emotional support; great ideas about logistics - from cat catching to looking up addresses and phone numbers; and an extra special thanks to desjardins for making posters - the poster that Hiker Jill saw and then called us over 2 weeks later.
All of this went down while we were moving - so we were temporally and technologically paralyzed. In fact, when Walter originally called me about an hour after Tina took off I was in a taxi with our 3.5 year old about to fly from one coast to another.
MetaFilter (especially Ask) as a community has meant a lot to me for a long time. I've sought wisdom from you all for just about every decision I've made or problem I've had over the last 7 years. If I had a nickel for every time I said "Metafilter says..." which in my world means as close to the absolute truth/right answer as possible. I'm also a much more reasonable and intelligent person because of this place. Overall, my life is much better because of this site and its members. (Moreover, many of you are amongst my closest friends - IRL or online or both.)
Thank you all for showing me yet again that MetaFilter is the best place on the Internet.
I know this isn't saving the Russian woman or anything, but I do know how much we like kitties around here.
