Another Strange (And Happy) Cat Story!

in cat •  9 months ago

I've been meaning to do a "cat post" for @kaminchan for a while now, but I have been so distracted by various new interests. Also, my phone camera is damaged and I always leave my other camera at work! However, last night we had another strange cat-related incident which I would like to share.


Yesterday while I was browsing through facebook I saw a post about a missing tabby cat. I always feel sorry for people who lose their cats as it has happened to me, I even added a sad face to the post and then, as you do, I went on with my day. Quite late yesterday evening my daughter and her boyfriend were leaving to go to his house and I heard them calling me. Somewhat reluctantly, it was cold and late!, I went to see what they were on about. 


A tabby cat had come strolling up our driveway and greeted them extremely affectionately. In the dark he bore a striking resemblance to a tabby cat of ours who had disappeared about 2 years ago and my daughter was beside herself! The cat happily followed me inside and I quickly saw he was not our long lost cat, but a beautiful and unbelievably affectionate male tabby. I could see he was well socialised and very trusting of people. I fed him and he quickly made himself at home, much to the disgust of our other cats. I thought of the facebook post I had seen, but couldn't seem to find it with my phone.

The happy tabby!

When we went to bed, I left him in the lounge area with a couple of open windows, hoping he would make his way home on his own, but during the night I heard him crying every now and then. As soon as we opened the door to get breakfast, he came running through to our bedroom and leaped onto our bed, as happy as can be. As soon as I got to work I searched for the facebook post I had seen yesterday, and the cat really did look like the missing cat! I quickly contacted the owner and we were both in tears!


The owner is out of town until this afternoon and I hope the cat stays put until then, but I suspect it will, like all cats he loves my husband! The lady told me she had recently moved from a farm into town, but the house she had moved into was not suitable, and had moved quickly again. The cat has been missing two weeks, but it must have been staying with someone else, as he was in good condition. We stay about 6km from where the cat went missing. My other cats will just have to put up with him until then!


Here are some additional pictures of our four cats.

Peaches is my daughter's cat and spends his time at both our house as well as her boyfriend's house. He is quite well traveled!

Andy is our other boy, and had been rolling in the sand when I took these pictures. He is always happiest outdoors.

A moment between Peaches and Andy in the sun.

Peaches looking rather beautiful!

Smokey is mine and my husband's special, VERY spoilt baby!

Gary, who is a girl, is our ginger female. At the moment she is exceptionally grumpy as she hates winter and I have been struggling to take a photo of her. This phto doesn't really show it, but she is quite overweight and has a sore joint in a front leg, which is worse in the winter.

Here my other cats are trying to figure out what this interloper is all about, but Gary made some overtures of friendship. I would have been sorely tempted to keep the tabby if I had not found her owner, but I am happy, four cats is more than enough!

Thank you for sharing about your beautiful cats and I am glad you have found the owner. I was glad to see you are still prevailing here!

·

How are you doing?!
Hope all is well on your front!

You have to look at my cat video!
Come back soon with more photos of your cats!

·

I'm heading your way now! I've been a little ill, but getting better now. :)

·
·

Take care! I have been trying out my strange cooking recipe with cumin and spices. Very funny taste!

·
·
·

It is our authentic South African Durban curry, and a firm family favourite!

·
·
·
·

I didn't find all the spices. So, it's lacking something.
I will get to the spice shop soon.

By the way, there should be no water features in your bed room: no fish bowl, no fountain.

Move the aquarium to the east sector of your house (to reduce the bad luck of robbery this year)

Move to the south-west sector for enhancing your wealth luck! Your choice!

I am trying to write something about feng shui; very difficult to convey the gist of the matter.

Wow, that is so interesting. My husband gave me a MUCH larger fishtank, which I filled up with crystals and moved it to the lounge this weekend. I am looking for a specific kind of fish, and will only buy when I find beautiful specimens.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Then, you could post some photos of your new fish tank!
MUCH larger!! Oh! I cannot imagine! I dare not imagine!
As big as a small swimming pool?! A bath tub?!

Hahahahahaha!!!!!!!

What is the name of the tabby cat? He does look very sweet!
Gary is really over weight! I really have to stop feeding my ginger cats too many times a day!!

Your four cats are full of unique characters! Thank you for making this post for me! This is a great diversion fro me, I like studying the faces of these cats!

You have only four cats. Now I have three cats and four kittens!! Altogether the magic number seven!

Cheers.

It's very difficult to stop feeding the cats as they keep on nagging! I have noticed the same with my fish too. The tabby cat's name is Ben and she, the owner, was so unbelievably happy to reunited with her cat!

·
·

Very good ending for the tabby cat and her owner!

How are your cats like the cold weather?!

Any more cat photos?!

@onetree Do you really like cats or some other animals?

·

I like all animals, but cats are my favourite!

·
·

OK How old is your cat.

Hi!!! I was so sick and I'm not a person who usually gets sick. Some kind of flu or chest infection. I'm starting to feel better but have so much catching up to do with everything. I hope all is well on your side?

·
·

I was quite worried about you!
Hope you are feeling much stronger each day! You must have caught a very nasty bug from someone while you were traveling!
Good thing you have got a strong stamina to fight this vicious virus!

I am okay, quite busy just now. Got a slight cold but shrugged it off with herbal medicine.
News about South Africa was not too good. But everything will come to a halt when the economic collapse actually starts to hit people’s ATM cards, no longer usable!
Take it easy for a while!

Hi, I hope all is well with you, hope you will be back on here soon :)

·

Thanks @karenb54 !!! Soon, yes. :)

·
·

Lovely to hear from you. I've been going through the same. Take one day at a time hun :)

How are you today?!

You are right about the cats getting human cold! I have to be more careful about getting too close to my cats when I have running nose.

Hope you are feeling much better today!

Get well soon.

·

Hi, the flu was really bad! Also suffering from a depression I'm struggling to get out of, but I will be back very soon.

·
·

Very funny! About three hours ago I was thinking of you while I was driving to town.

I guessed as much that you had a hard time to overcome your illness and your energy must have been quite low too.
Things have been very hard I a way for everyone!

I had a few ordeals with my cats gone missing.
Then the flood came to Nongkhai twice!
I have to bear quite a loss in terms of trees and my investment in planting a forest! The damage has been done so I just have to sit tight and carefully plan about the future! I just have to work harder to raise the money for new plants and trees.

Any way, I was thinking that it’s going to get really tough economically by this October! Actually South Africa will be benefiting a lot from the ongoing investment in Antarctica. It’s a bit secretive at the moment.
Perhaps that’s why the cabal wants to get rid of people in South Africa where they want to have it as their new base. They will need safe and secret ports and trasportation systems and a mini town for their new companies, industries, and for their thousands of engineers and employees.

It’s going to get rough in South Africa as their nominees are carrying out the orders to get rid of people along the sea route!
I thought you might wanna escape to Thailand for a while if things get really rough. But I hope things won’t get to that stage.

There are other external factors affecting to geopolitical situation at the moment. The war between the black hats (deep state) and the white hats are intensifying with some black swans in the wings! This will change a few moves on the international chess board.

Little people will suffer as they have no clues what’s going on!
Pray for positive energy and divine assistance!

Take care! Just tell the depression and flu to get out of your house and go to the ocean!

Cheers.

Thank you so much @kaminchan, I am struggling a bit, but need to stay positive. I'm sorry to hear about the floods and the stress with the cats.
