AWOL cat and a leaking roof

I got home from work last night at 12:30am and no Clyde. I asked Scooby where he was at and he replied, he's around here someplace. In the meantime Kiddo wanted to go out on the back porch which is our summer living room and winter storage room. I let him out there and he started investigating and right before I shut the door I heard a very faint "meow". I called out for Clyde and heard him again but couldn't determine where it was coming from. I thought maybe upstairs in the attic since the attic wall and the porch wall are the same, but when I went upstairs I found the attic door was locked.

Ok so then I went back out on the back porch and heard him again and thought maybe its just another cat outside. So then I searched the house and no Clyde and returned to the back porch. I heard him again and started to look throught the clutter thinking he got trapped in it somewhere. Scooby then starts to help me and says it sounds like he's in the attic. He then tells me he was up there earlier checking out a new roof leak. So we head up there and open the door and sure enough there he was all covered in dirt. Note the picture below that he's mostly white. Scooby didn't see him get past him while he was up there. Poor boy had been up there for hours so the first thing he did was head for the litter box once he got out. I brushed the dirt off of him as best I could and him and the rest will be getting a bath soon as it gets a little warmer.

Sorry for a cat post but I've got nothing else going on. It rained all day yesterday, the roof started leaking in the bathroom downstairs. So now it looks like we got more work to do this spring/summer to get that fixed. yay....

Awww, poor kitty. He got more than what he bargained for, that's for sure. And you have to do something about your leaking roof. It may cause serious damage to your house interior. Good luck on fixing it.
