Where Are You? (Pets Are Forever)

This story comes from Micki Wilson, a Heaven Can Wait Animal Society volunteer who works with our feral cat program.  Micki traps feral cats, brings them to HCWS to be spayed/neutered and vaccinated and then returns the felines to their colonies where she keeps a watchful eye on them. 

Here is a story about a cat that Micki found that was once someone’s pet. 
 – –

It had been about two months since the house had become vacant, when one day I noticed the previous tenant’s cat sitting on the doorstep. 
 
Since I have cat food in my truck always, I stopped to feed the cat. She was extremely skinny and very hungry. I stroked her fur while she ate. She purred loudly and climbed in my lap when she had finished eating. I sat on the ground and continued petting her for several minutes.
 
A neighbor came over and told me this sad story.
 
The day the family moved out, the cat sat in the driveway as they pulled out with their last load. They never so much as looked back!

The cat, on the other hand, waited every day and night for the last two months. The neighbor said sometimes the cat would stare at the door and meow, as if to say, “Where are you?” She said the cat never left the property, as if she didn’t want to miss them when they returned. The only reason the cat ate was because the neighbor brought her leftovers and scraps sometimes. I noticed there was no water source on the property. The cat was severely dehydrated.
 
This poor cat had never given up on its owner, yet the owner had no problem abandoning her and never looking back! She would die if I left her. I scooped her up in my arms and took her home. After a visit to the vet and some phone calls, she had a new forever home, where she will be cared for and kept safely inside. The new owner says she is the sweetest cat they have ever known, they love her dearly and she gives them lots of joy.
 
So, why would someone just throw away this wonderful cat? Animals are not disposable. Animals are forever. If you’re not ready for a lifelong commitment, DON’T BECOME A PET OWNER!

The majority of cats rescued by Heaven Can Wait Animal Society were once family pets, like Cody pictured above, that became homeless through no fault of their own. They are loving animals whose only goal is to once again become a beloved member of a family.
