I was particularly drawn to this poster, probably because the lost cat, Midleton, looks a lot like my Nahum.
So, this morning I find a posting on the Purrfect Pals Facebook page, that a fluffy Maine Coon mix had been found stray in Everett and is now up for adoption. I immediately wondered if it was Midleton, so I ran out to find Midleton's poster. Sadly, it doesn't seem like a match. Bummer. Goliath looks lighter in color and is older. I decided to send an email to the address on the poster just in case. So far, I haven't heard back.
I have never lost a cat and I can't imagine the heart pain that would come with losing a kitty. Purrs and prayers that Midleton comes back home soon.
How wonderful that you're trying to help these peeps and cats in need. I would hope that if I were lost - not that I'm planning on it - someone like you would be keeping a watchful eye out for me. On behalf of cats everywhere... thanks.ReplyDelete
Oh, I'd be beside myself if I lost one of my little ones.ReplyDelete
Thank you SO much for what you try to do and how you think.ReplyDelete
My mom would be heartsick and just about unable to cope of any of we indoor babies ever got out. And an older gentleman cat or gentlewoman cat..Mom would just be bereft as they don't have much of a chance.
How sweet of you to try to help find Midleton. Someone like you make a big difference in this kind of situation! I hope Midleton will be found and come back home very soon.ReplyDelete
The Baby went missing for a day and night once, she came back hungry and dirty and her claws worn down to nubs...we suspect she fell into a drain. The worst bit was the not knowing what her fate might have been. She is a terrible door darter and got out on some guests going in and out.ReplyDelete
Scott has helped return three dogs in the neighborhood, and it does feel so good to reunite them with their peeps!
I had the pleasure of reuniting a huge Maine Coon and his owner. He was in the flower bed at the end of my patio in the apartment complex when I came home from work. His owner and a couple children were hunting him. I told them there was a big cat in my flower bed--it was hers.ReplyDelete
Good thoughts go out for Midleton. I'm sure his owner is very distraught. I do hope he has checked every shelter for miles around. I helped someone find their cat by checking the local shelter for 3 months going every 2 weeks. The cat was brought in by someone that had taken it inside for awhile and then decided it best it go to the shelter. It is now back with the owner. You can't stop looking.ReplyDelete
When we adopted our eight year old from the shelter he was free because he was an older cat, and free because we were over 65 and came with a microchip for free also. A great big bundle of joy and love all for free!ReplyDelete
I know what you mean and I always take an active note of lost cat and dog posters. I quite often photograph the poster so I have it to hand and also take shots of cats I see around that fit. I would love to reunite because like you, I cannot imagine losing my boys. Some people can be cruel too and pretend to find or threaten to hurt lost cats just to get a reward. There are posters around for a lost dog near home, they keep being up dated with things like 'still missing' and moved around to different spots. He is called Percy and clearly much loved. I wish he could be found, but fear he has been stolen which is happening a fair bit in this area. Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxxReplyDelete
