Every day, we see posts online about a missing cat or dog. Unfortunately, pets can disappear – that’s a harsh reality we must accept. Some eventually find their way back home, while others remain forever missing. The most recent case was one with a happy end after a missing cat was found alive and well a year after running away from home.
The cat from Lockerbie, Scotland, went missing last year. She was shocking found in an abandoned cinema where she spent a few days before being found. Officers at the scene had to call the owner of the building who gave them access so they can get the cat.
Surprisingly, Sophie the cat was in good condition, but she was still rushed to the vets. After receiving treatment for dehydration, vets scanned the cat’s chip and were shocked to discover that she has been missing for a year.
Sophie has been reunited with her owners who thanked the helpful owner of the premises, the officers involved in the rescue operation, and concerned members of the public.
This cat vanishing had a happy end and we hope that we’ll see more like it in the future.
Read these characteristics which almost all cat lovers have in common:
INTROVERTED AND SENSITIVE
It’s the nature of cats that they are not friends with everybody, and the same trait can be seen in their owners too. Usually, they live alone and are happy with their independent lifestyle. They are introverts but are comfortable hanging around with other people. However, they would need some me-time to relax and recharge.
CAT LOVERS LEAN TO LEFT
It has been observed that people with liberal political leanings prefer cats over dogs. You might be a liberal dog lover or a conservative cat owner; if you’re a liberal, you love cats and vice versa.
CAT OWNERS ARE OPEN-MINDED
Five traits – conscientiousness, neuroticism, extraversion, agreeableness, and openness are often seen in most cat lovers. As compared to dog owners, people who have cats as pets are more open and therefore, have greater artistic creativity.
Just like their pets, cat lovers seek attention from people around them. They like to be the centre of all conversations. At times, cat owners rely on their pets for emotional support.
THEY RESPECT CATS MORE THAN ANYONE
Cat people respect cats more than humans, in general. The saddest sight for a cat lover is to see the animal on the streets without a home. Cat lovers are often seen making a special effort to rescue or rehabilitate homeless cats.
