So, last Friday, we printed out LOST flyers and headed out to the neighborhood where he was found. We walked the beautiful old Santa Rosa neighborhood sticking flyers on mailboxes and signposts.
We'd only just returned to the office when we got a call from a man saying "I just got home and found a flyer on my mailbox. This is my cat Jack" he said. We were elated. As it turned out, "Jack" is "co-owned" by two neighbors who live across the street from one another. He had shown up as a beat up stray cat seven years prior and they had taken him in, nursed him back to health and he lived between the two houses - getting fed at both places, sleeping in both garages and they were SO happy to find that he was safe and sound with FFSC. What was even more ironic was that "Jack's" co-owner turned out to be one of our Pick of the Litter staff members! She too was flabergasted to find a flyer in her mailbox with Charlie's (at her house they called him Charlie) picture on it and that Forgotten Felines had him.
Last night he went home with our staff member to live out the rest of his days as an indoor cat!
And they all lived happily ever after.
