A Nice Ending Today

A little Orange Tabby Cat we call "Buddy" has been hanging around a lot the past month or so. He comes by first thing in the morning for breakfast, and sometimes he stops by in the evening. He's a little skinny, but is not starving. And he's not feral, he's very friendly. We haven't been sure if he belongs to anybody. It was hard to tell for sure.

Wednesday night a front came through, temp dropped from 75 to 40 in about two hours. Right before I went to bed, I noticed Buddy Cat was on the front porch around 11pm getting rained on, he was all wet and meowing.So I picked him up, brought him in the house and put him in the heated garage.

Then it was sleeting all day Thursday, snowed on Friday. So we kept him in the garage. Yesterday I put a collar on him with a note taped to it with my phone number, saying "call if this is your cat." I cracked open the garage door so he could leave if he wanted, but he slept in his cat bed all day.

Today it was sunny,and Buddy took off in the morning. This afternoon I got a call. It was a kid, probably 8 or 9 years old. He asked if I put the collar on his cat. I said yes, that we wanted to make sure he had a family.

He does.

He has a little boy at home, and kitty's name is actually Rex. The boy was crying because his kitty didn't come home for a few days. I explained to him we wanted "Rex" to be safe, and we never meant to keep him. and now that we know he has a family, we'll know who to call if he shows up here in bad weather again. The boy thanked me for taking care of Rex.

All's well that ends well. Rex is home, little boy is happy, and I don't have to adopt another stray. It's a good day.

And big whiff on the "Happy Ending" humor that could have resulted from a different thread title.

Brilliant idea on the note. You'd make a great neighbor. Unless of course you don't kill the dandelions in your yard.

Am I the only one who thinks dandelions are nice? They look like yellow flowers I don't see the big deal?

Hope the kid learned a lesson about being more responsible with his pets. The cat definitely should not have been outside with that storm front coming in.

If we didn't kill them and instead groomed them, the world would be filled with beautiful yellow flowers.

Then a week later we'd be buried in white fuzz like they were tribbles.

Well, I'm not sure what to think. When the kid called, he said he was on his mom's cellphone, and the battery was about to run out. It was a 913 number. I wrote the number down from the caller ID. I have no idea what his home situation is like, there's a lot of rental housing in our neighborhood. More families with kids have moved in, because we're now in Independence School District.

I didn't want to press the kid for info. The kitty "Rex" may come visit me because he doesn't get fed regularly at home. I'll still give him a meal if he wants it. I'm just glad to know he's got a home to go to. I didn't know that for sure Wednesday night.

Plus tomcats tend to roam, no matter what kind of house they come from.
I felt bad for the kid not knowing where his kitty was the last three days. I know I'd be very upset if one of my kitties went missing for three days. But like I said, now I know what's going on, so I can manage the situation better.

We of the human species sometimes need to learn the ropes about how to handle our animal brethren.
Most of them are best handled with tongs instead of a fork.

Very cool story, though.

This would be a better story had you given the cat an antifreeze bath and sent him home with a note for the little boy to buy a real pet, like a pit bull.
