Another one made a comic
Even the cat couldn’t sit this one out
And it worked!
After a couple of days, Ralph was found in a nearby town
On October 14th Camron’s parents got the call they had been waiting for. Ralph was found, starving and visibly shaken, but he immediately recognized his best pal, Camron.
