I would be on a plane this morning, to help search with you were I able my friend... ugggh. Any who are married understand this necessity... you think they search hard for missing children.... loosing THE ring
Heck ~mortal enemies~ and abject strangers would join the search teams!
Tolkein's "Lord of the Ring" was only a glimpse of your ring's "true power"
1) I propose one of the rock climbing TWISTING clip thingys to prevent this potential misery in the future?! 2) Interrogate the cat, until it breaks down and tells where it hid ~the precious~? Lastly consider getting a back-up but do NOT tell her your life (and parts) may well depend upon it...
Never ever take it off
e-v-e-r! Good luck brother, hope your couch is comfortable... Profound sadness (FOR your situation)...
Wishing you all possible sunshine to reveal your "precious",
