Okay- this doesn't look good. Casey's 12 years old and he took off into the woods. I think he got nailed by hornets. The story will continue and ALL I ASK of you guys is that you have some patience. Let me note that if he dies he will not be written out of the story. The human is very sad about this- this is her favorite.
And yes- in the past few years the humans has had some bad stuff happen to her. It is so incredible that the human doesn't even think you'd believe it. So, have some good thoughts for the little fella.
