Lost cat reunited with owner

by Suw on February 10, 2008

I’m both delighted and sad to report that we have united Foggle – real name Orlando – with his owner. I’d put a flyer in the local shop and Orlando’s owner had put flyers up near where she lives, and an anonymous person had seen both my flyer and her flyer and had put two and two together. This anonymous person texted me with Orlando’s owner’s number, and also gave my number to her, and yesterday afternoon we managed to get in touch.

Orlando’s owner only lives just across the road, so she came straight over with his cat box to take him home. She was really lovely, just like her cat, and we had a bit of a chat. Apparently I was right to think that he had some Siamese in him – his miaow gives that away. He also has a half-sister (same mother, different father), who has been pining for him. He went missing on Monday, so when I saw him Tuesday I was right to think he was looking distressed and lost (I nearly took him in there and then, actually, and now wish I had – we might have had a speedier resolution to it all).

It was so nice to be able to reunite Orlando with his owner. I was so pleased – I know how awful it is when your cat goes missing, and I know how much I’d worry about my kitties if they didn’t come home at night. On the other hand, I fell in love with him pretty much immediately. He is such a gorgeous cat, with a fabulous personality, something which I think comes from having a caring owner, which she clearly is. He would snuggle up with me all day on the sofa as I worked, follow me around the flat wherever I went, and curl up on the bed with Kevin and I when we went to sleep.

Even though we only had Orlando for three days, I do miss him something awful. So I’m both sad and happy. Sad he’s gone, happy that he’s gone home to someone who clearly adores him.

I didn’t know how to get this message to you but here you go.Sirius Satellite radio has the radio plays: Theatre Of The New Ear on channel 119 going in rotation till Friday. Your review was great and after I read it, it really made me want to hear it. I think it was a great play and I wish I could have seen it live. I hope you know somebody with Sirius so that you could maybe record it, Linas

Cheers Linas! Sorry I missed it! Maybe it’s online somewhere…
