Update: Good news! Scarlett is safe at home. Owner Erin gives this account:
Turns out Scarlett had fallen four stories down a heating duct, and then lurked in the basement duct system silently for 7 days without food or water. We had duct experts and contractors come and look last week, and they couldn’t find her. Finally last night she started to meow, and after taking apart the ducts even more, we got to take her to the emergency room where they proclaimed her merely dehydrated! She got her subcutaneous fluids, a bath, and was sent home where she is purring, meowing, eating ravenously, and sleeping off her trauma. Making it all even more incredible, the duct specialist, Tony, came all the way from Queens AFTER HOURS, refused to accept payment, and then topped it off by driving us to the emergency vet clinic. We’re calling him St. Anthony!
