Those of you who’ve been following along with my blog for a while may remember the little cat that we found in early December last year. We kept her for three months, getting her spayed and vaccinated while she was here, but when we couldn’t turn up an owner we took her to SAFE Haven.
During the first week she was with us, I put ads in the local newspapers, shelter web sites, and petfinder sites. By the time she’d been adopted from SAFE Haven I’d forgotten about the ads on places like Tabby Tracker—until Saturday, when I found a notice in my inbox that someone thought I had found their cat, and could I please contact them at such-and-such e-mail address.
I thought perhaps she’d just mistaken the photo on the site for a cat she’d recently lost, but she said she’d lost her cat in December and she’s quite positive the one I found was hers. Unfortunately at this point there’s nothing I can do to help; SAFE Haven sends a postcard when a cat you gave them has been adopted, but they do not give out the information of the family who adopted it. I have no idea where the cat is now.
I feel kind of bad that I can’t help, but we kept her as long as we could—longer, really, as initially we agreed to take her to a shelter after two weeks.
