If cats could talk, what a story this one would tell….
PHOTO COURTESY CASCA
A cat rescue operation was called to trap a cat recently that was living for at least one month under a balcony. After it had been trapped it was brought to the Saint-Lazare Veterinary Hospital where it was checked for microchipping and sterilization.
To the astonishment of the Good Samaritan, the hospital had found the original owner, who had since moved to Trois-Rivières. The cat had been microchipped and sterilized as a young kitten but had been lost for six years. However, somebody must have taken the cat in because it is a totally domesticated and affectionate cat, not even afraid of the vacuum cleaner.
It is too bad that, whoever had taken him in did not have him checked out for microchipping. A lot of heartbreak for the original owner could have been avoided.
The cat must have been lost again and had lived for the last month in freezing weather under somebody's balcony. He is now safe and sound with a foster parent and is looking for a good and permanent home (no more escapes!)
The moral of this story, please microchip your pets!
