You idiots! First, some dumb ass loses kitten, collar no information! Second, doesn’t post “Lost Kitten” till months later. Thank GOD someone with a good heart found this little critter, and was kind enough to care for it. You people!!!!!!
Oh Please! This person was kind enough to take in the kitten and make it well again. He/She gave it a good home and has gotten attached to it. He/She also admitted that they had seen the poster but got too attached to the kitten. At least he/she was kind enough to put up that poster to let the original owners know that the kitten was safe. It is a very touching story but I do not believe the person was wrong in keeping the cat, considering they originally looked for the missing posters but could not find any.
Idiots, the person that put this up stated that he LOOKED for lost posters and did not find any until months later. I would have kept the cat too. At least the cat will be taken care of now because the original owner did SUCH a great job! Parasites? Months later you realize your kitten is missing? Really? Yeah, that person deserved to get the cat back because said individual would have taken SUCH great care of him, right? Wrong :).
I disagree. This person looked around for a while and didn’t find a poster until months later. You may argue that they might not have seen it, but I have to do laundry at least every week or two, so if there were a poster at the laundromat it would have been noticed. And when the kitten was found wandering the streets it had parasites and worms. Who lets a kitten out alone at this age and in this condition? How could you possibly even let a kitten get to that point health-wise? It’s deplorable.
Yes, a found poster would have been a good idea, but I think this cat is probably living a better life than it would have with the previous owner. Perhaps they saw the poster and learned something.
Jay, who are you to judge the cats owner? Maybe that little fur-ball was the only ray of sunshine in the REAL cat’s owner’s life. The poster creator is an arrogant bastard for posting that. “Sorry but I am a better owner than you and I deserve this more than you,” Way to try and make yourself seem like a selfless person because you know you’re committing a completely selfish act. My neighbor ALWAYS taunts me saying that I am torturing my cat by keeping him safe inside, and not letting him run rampant around the streets of Cleveland, so just because in their minds they would be a better cat owner than me I should hand him over?!
I H A T E CATS and people who spend to much time commenting on shit like this. Maybe it was a homelss persons cat and he couldnt afford to kill off the hungry little parasites. Perhaps some random kid just put a collar on a wandering cat. I woulda kept it with the worms. New evidence shows that worms help with cat digestion
1. In reply to a rude comment: Gareth if you hate cats, why in the hell are you hanging out here? A site full of cats and cat lovers is the purrfect place for someone like you to lurk right? *sarcasm*
I hate people who take time out of their obviously boring lives just to add a little spite to a conversation they have no business being a part of.
If you don’t like what you see hit that lovely button on your browser called “back” or do us all a favor and just hit the little x in the top right.
2.In reply to this post: I know if I was the original owner I would be relieved that someone was taking care of my cat though I’d also be upset they kept it instead of replying to the lost cat poster.
But why months later did they decide to put up a poster? Why wait? I can understand accidents happening, the kitten getting out and a lot of kittens (especially rescued kittens from ferals) have worms. But why wait?
I’ve also been in the place of the person who took in the lost cat. Actually had the original owner come up to my window a year or two later see my cat and say rather loudly it was their cat that was lost.
But I had a stack of vet bills saying I had gotten him neutered, treated for parasites, vaccinated, and even treated him for a flare up of calici virus that we discovered him being a carrier of. Had photo’s of him when he came to us just skin and bones.
Which one of us would a court of law see as his owner?
They say if you feed a stray it becomes your responsibility. Taking responsibility for a wandering cat makes him yours.
The owner didn’t even bother trying to get him back.
Good for this guy giving the kitten a home. For all of you who do not know otherwise….most kittens have intestinal parasites, they get them from their mother. It is totally common and easily treated with a dewormer…I’m glad to hear this little critter fared well and is happy and healthy!
Just because the cat had worms doesn’t mean the previous owner did not care for it. Like others have said, most kittens have intestinal parasites and they pick them up easily. The cat could have been out for half a day and picked up worms, then by the time the kitten was found (say a day or so later), no usual cat owner would be able to say when he got the worms.
It’s nice that the people found the cat and took care of it. And it’s even nice that the people would find a way to let the old owners know they found the cat and cared for it and it’s happy.
That being said, not returning the cat to the owners isn’t necessarily the right thing to do. Just because they didn’t find the found posters until later doesn’t mean they weren’t put up until later. They say nothing about where they eventually saw the posters or where they initially looked. Furthermore, who says that they really DID look? maybe they’re just bs-ing.
Also, as someone else mentioned, there’s this thing called a “Found” poster. If you’re trying to find a cat’s owner and that’s your REAL intent (not just making sure no one will come trying to claim the cat), then that’s the FIRST thing you do.
I ammend my statement, they did say where they looked. My point still stands though. maybe they didn’t think to post at the laundromat (not everyone does their laundry at the laundromat). Maybe they posted with the pound and pet stores. We can’t know and it’s just plain rude to judge the cat’s original owners when we don’t have all the information.
Um Hello, if the writer is saying they found the cat “mid September” then apparently the cat was gone for a long time before the retarded owner got around to even caring enough to mention the cat was gone. Personally, Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers in this case.
if you read the post, they took the cat to the vet and it had parasites and worms, so obviously the 1st owner sucked at caring for the cat. then, months later the signs were found. i dont think this person should give the cat back. hell, they probally ate the cat any ways. i would have. YAY Japanese!!! ^_^
God… there are a lot of stupid people here. I can agree that this person who kept the cat is nice, and will be a good parent to this little kitten… but here are a few things you need to think about.
Kittens/Cats get loose… It happens. I’ve had cats get out, but they almost always come home for food, unless they get lost. I usually look for my animal for 2-3 days before I put up a poster. No need to spam the area before they have had the chance to come back on their own.
Nametags/tags get snagged, and ripped off my cats collars *ALL THE TIME*. We replace nametags for each of our animals at least once a year… Do you think that maybe the tag got lost?
As far as fliers go… maybe the cat wandered from the area it was lost in. I have put out fliers for missing animals to no avail… then added MORE fliers in different locations. He/she could have just been expanding their efforts. No one thinks to try the next town over until one has almost given up hope!
Worms/parasites – Most often come from eating rotten/trash food. Are you people idiots? A cat can be outside for less than a day and get worms from eating out of trash. Do you think that its possible that cat may have been out a week before you found him? In a weeks time, worms/parasites can multiply and take over a cats body.
I’m not trying to defend bad pet owners… just give this person a little credit. Don’t assume until you know all the facts. It doesn’t make someone bad just because they don’t find their pet.
Worms and parasites come from fleas too, and often the mother if she’s infected. Worms can also come from drinking water, other parasites too. Worms can come from eating shit, licking the ass of another cat, and a whole host of other places, even eating dirt.
i’d say this person is kind and nice seeing as she took in this kitten that she had NO ties to and brought him to the vet and got rid of whatever the kitten had, got his shots, then took care of him. why should this person put himself in the owners shoes? the person didn’t put up posters till a few months later, i’d say the kitten belongs to the person who found him seeing as he obviously took better care of him.
It makes no sense to put up a sign months after a kitten was lost. If they didn’t care they’d be no signs, and months later they wouldn’t even think of it.
Did you ever think the flyer was possibly covered up, or that the owner flyered their own neighborhood before getting desperate and expanding their search? The cat was lost, and it doesn’t take a lost cat long to wander from their original neighborhood and get worms (which it probably got from its mother anyway).
You’re making A LOT of assumptions about the owner. You really don’t know anything. Maybe the cat was the buddy of someone elderly, disabled or infirmed that couldn’t do a hard target search.
Maybe they were poor and took in a stray or a kitten from an unwanted litter? You gave the cat medical treatment that some people can’t even afford for themselves. Poor people don’t deserve cats too?
The thing is that you were given the opportunity to do the right thing, instead you’re patting yourself on the back and flaunting that you stole the cat. There are thousands of cats without homes that you can adopt for free. You took a cat that had a home.
I am studying ethics at the University of Massachusetts and we do case-studies and debate a lot of different ethically gray scenarios in class discussions. The comments on here remind me a lot of our spirited class discussions. The major difference being that this is not an ethically gray area. In the world of ethics, this is pretty cut-and-dry. Without a doubt, this is unethical behavior. Its almost darkly funny that the flier has a self-congratulatory tone to it. It reads like a giant F-U to the original owner.
I’d be a little t-o’ed if my cat got lost and someone posted a flyer that said they found them. But at least the cat is well cared for and not still roaming around trying to find food and fend for itself.
dudes, the cat was a kitten and got lost, so we can assume it wasn’t living with the original owners for very long. they waited months to put up a poster. the person who found the cat cared enough to get all the shots and worms/parasites taken care of, and now they are attached to the cat. the cat has lived at the second place for much longer, so the cat is already settled in that house. why should the owner make it go back, and get used to a new place, that it probably doesn’t even remember?
@angry sad person, it’s not “stealing” under these circumstances, and even if technically, yes, they “stole” the cat, the cat would probably much rather live with the newer peeps, and they don’t mean it any harm. the old people probably got over it by a couple months. the peole who found the cat already care for it so much, why don’t the old peeps get a new cat if it’s so easy? the cat is probably attached anyways.
If the cat was full of worms and parasites *and* running loose on the street it was not being well cared for. A kitten is as defenseless as a toddler. Think about that.
I think he did the cat and some negligent human a favor.
He did not have to post the flier. I think this person was trying to bring closure to a someone who probably thought about the lost cat for 5 min. then moved on.
I am astounded at the number of people think that the person who found the cat did the right thing!
He stole a cat, simple as that!
Everyone disagreeing keeps making up excuses based on assumptions they have made about the original owner. If the original owner had not put a poster up I would congratulate the new owner for doing the right thing.
However someone obviously cared for the cat or they wouldn’t have put a poster up.
“I didn’t see a poster until months later at the laudramat, by then I was too attached”
“Even though I now know this cat has an owner that misses it, I have decided to keep this cat because I am selfish. Not only that, I will put another poster up so maybe the previous owner can see what a c*nt I am”
If the cat was wandering the streets for months, then of course it would have parasites. I love my cat and I would have done anything to get her back. I don’t think the person who found it should have returned it. But at least the poor thing didn’t end up dead or maimed
I’ve put up posters for a lost cat. Had them taken down only a day or two later, and then returned to put up more posters. Then, as there weren’t any responses, expanded the area I put up posters around. I kept looking (calling pounds/shelters, repostering, etc) for months. You not seeing the poster doesn’t mean anything significant.
Cats are more likely to get parasites outside. . . YOU FOUND THE CAT OUTSIDE
It’s so unbelievably douchey to post a sign bragging essentially about how you’re not giving the cat back. Particularly when the circumstances of finding the cat are vague enough to NOT imply fault in the original owner.
What, what a mean, spiteful thing to do. Making assumptions about the original owner of the cat in an attempt to feel good about essentially STEALING it. So the cat is happy and well taken care of? Not the point. It could have been just as happy and well taken care of–more so, even–with its REAL owner…who is not you. You did a selfish, mean thing. Why don’t you swallow your self-congratulatory attitude and do the right thing by calling this person. You can, at the very least, talk to the owner and get some insight on the original condition of the cat if you’re going to try and make excuses for stealing it.
My initial thought that it WAS mean to say you’re not giving the cat back.
BUT. He’s most likely posting this because the cat was likely abandoned. He probably found it starved, injured, and other bad things. It’s to shame the previous owner who threw the cat away like garbage, which we can all agree was a noble thing to do.
The kitten had a collar so clearly it was owned. Cats that are outside will get parasites. Tags come off. Cat could have been a long way from home, who knows where the old owner put up signs, did the finder also put up signs? I wouldn’t judge the old owner, it sucks to lose a pet under any circumstances.
Some cats you don’t really own. I had a beautiful siamese that was a hunter and a wanderer. She would disappear for a few days and then come home smelling like cigarettes. I was out for a walk and saw my crazy neighbor open the door and let her out. I asked her not to feed Nathalie and she accused me of abuse and said she would call the SPCA; she was lonely and nuts.
Another time Nathalie came home with someone else’s collar (mine was gone). I put a note on the collar that she was owned and loved. This neighbor said she would sit outside her door and cry for hours. When I looked for her all my neighbors said she begged and used their cat doors.
She was eventually hit by car. Sadly this is the end that takes most urban cats. The only way you can really protect a cat is keep it inside.
Life can be cruel but bless everyone that cares for animals.
If the owner actually cared about it’s kitten, it wouldn’t have left it to walk the sidewalks alone. This kitten is lucky that someone sweet and loving found it and not the alternative!! Besides, It was probably abandoned by it’s maternal mother, like mine was when I found her. It happens.
I empathize with this person. I found a young cat (ca. 5 months old) on the street at 7 pm when I was doing a delivery for my job. I went back at 11 after work and she was still there. I took her home, fed her, bathed her, got her vaccinated, got her spayed, got her dewormed, and gave her a warm home. I have looked in the area several times for lost and found posters but haven’t found any. If I ever saw any, I’d never even consider giving her back because the original owners obviously didn’t care enough to keep her off the street and give her the proper medical attention she deserved.
I lost a dog when I was a kid. I got it back when someone found it and the local 4H director made the connection. It’d been found like 30 miles away in the woods, kept for a few months, then returned. I had that dog another 15 years.
Maybe I’ll try this the next time I find an iPod or cell phone. Keep it a while, then put up a poster where I found it. “Mine now, I’m keeping it.”
Just because he didn’t find the posters for months doesn’t mean they weren’t there. Maybe he didn’t look hard enough or happened not to be in the right place. Also, you have no clue how long the kitten had been lost before the second “owner” found him. Any animal that lives outside will get parasites without human intervention. The ID tag without info was a dumb mistake, but it doesn’t justify the second guy keeping the kitten. He should have given it back and gotten his own.
Why didn’t the person just call the number on the lost poster they eventually found and tell them this, instead of putting up a poster? Dick move, I would be ashamed if this happened and not publicizing it to make myself look a saint when I was really a cat-stealing a-hole.
All who defend him are just ASSUMING things about the original owner.
Cats like to be outside, it’s not being a bad owner to let a kitten outside.
Cats get lost. Obviously this kitten picked up worms and parasites while being homeless and lost. That doesn’t make the owner bad.
The finder said he saw posters 1-2 months after finding it. Perhaps he didn’t look hard enough, and clearly he did not put up “FOUND KITTEN” posters during those 1-2 months.
CAT STEALER. HE SHOULD FACE THE DEATH PENALTY. HAH.
What if someone lost their baby, and it was found by some chick 2 towns away. Then a month later the person that found the kid saw on the news that the kid was missing. And then she decided to put up a poster that says “Sorry, I found this kid without a home and with a cold. I got it all of its necessary vaccinations and treated it for a cold. You are a sucky mother to lose your kid, and you can’t have it back”
Ok I didn’t read the whole way down so if someone else already said this sorry for the repeat.
First Off; Cats get loose all the time and while they are gone they can catch anything that is out there… Just because this kitten had things does not mean that it was not well taken care of…
Second Off; Yes it was very considerate to try and let the old owners know that there cat is happy and healthy… Taking an animal in that isn’t yours means you are an animal lover, so you would be a great owner for this cat… However I do not feel it is right that you keep the cat and actually, if this were taken to court then you would find that they would probably make you give the cat back to its original owner if they paid you everything back that you spent on the little guy since you had it…
Which I feel should have been the option you gave the owners to begin with. You cannot just assume you are a better owner and you most certainly should not just tell them you are keeping there cat. You may have gotten attached but that is the chance you took when you decided to take in the little one….
Just a little FYI — letting kittens outside is dangerous. Wait until they’re at least a year old and can defend themselves against other animals. Un-neutered male cats (especially ferals) will occasionally attack and kill kittens. So will dogs, and dog owners are frequently daft when it comes to believing that their dog is “well behaved” and doesn’t need to be on a leash. I’ve been attacked by such “well behaved” dogs before because I was walking my cat (yes, on a leash) and their unleashed dog decided my cat was way more interesting than listening to their owner.
Outdoor kittens will crawl into small spaces for warmth (they have a harder time keeping warm), and that small space may be in your car’s engine compartment. As a child, I saw an entire litter of kittens die in this gruesome way.
I have temporarily taken in my share of wandering or malnourished cats and kittens. The most egregious case, I felt, was the people in my apartment complex who kept letting their tiny, ten week old kitten outside in the freezing cold. I’d see him howling at their door for hours. When I would go and check on him, he would be a shivering ball of fur only too glad to burrow under my jacket. I would take him inside my apartment and then let him back out when the owners came home.
Late one cold night, the kitten got stuck in a tree and cried for an hour. I found another neighbor attempting to get him out of the tree. I climbed up and rescued the poor thing, then took him back to his owners. No answer at their door (it was pretty late). I left them a note to tell them where their kitten was and took him to my place overnight. Were they grateful when I returned him the next morning? No. They yelled at me! It was below freezing that night and they were mad because I didn’t just leave their kitten exposed up high in a tree to “figure it out” himself!
Some people really do think of cats as outdoor furniture that only comes inside when you need to feed them or want to pet them. It’s sad. The feral cat I spayed and adopted has a better life than some of these “owned” kittens. My feral cat has an insulated shelter near our home for use when it’s cold or rainy. By contrast, my neighbor seemed to think that their kitten would just “figure it out” when it came to keeping warm, safe, and sheltered in the dead of winter.
1. Everyone is spending way to much time pondering how the orriginal owner must feel… cats run away, family pets get lost or die… it is a common problem it probably didnt ruin the rest of the orriginal owners life! you are all psychotic for reading into this so much.
2. I didnt find the letter particularly sweet, or understand why someone would waste their time making the flyer and hanging it up.. I mean… cats are found every day. Infact, my cat of eight years was found on the street, I dont happen to think im a horrible home wrecking person because in fact…
3. the world currently has a problem with the overpopulation of cats! WOW for such wacked out cat lovers I bet none of you thought of that. We should just be greatful that their are people willing to go out of their way to pick up a kitty that might need a home! must we be so negative about everything? Im sure the person who took care of the cat had the best intentions…
I dont know what happy go lucky world you all come from, but what I see on the news does not paint a pretty picture of what happenes to animals on the street. theirs some sick people out there looking to do sick things, at least theirs people willing to open up their homes and prevent this from happening. isnt that what we should all be focusing on?
4. who ever said that poor people deserve animals is an idiot. of course there are always exceptions to peoples circumstances… but if you know that you are not financialy capable of taking care of a pet and its medical needs, never the less your own, why would you decide to get one!? You are forcing an animal to live an unhealthy life for your own selfish need to have companionship… animals are not for our entertainment, if you cannot properly care for yours then you shouldnt have it.
5. Last but not least… YOUR CAT IS NOT YOUR CHILD.. PERIOD. you will never hear the first time your cat says mama, or send your cat off to school for the first time, it will never bring home its first report card, nor will it ever have its first crush, its first heart break, you will never see your cat graduate, get married, start a career… you did not carry your cat around in your womb for nine months and help create it with someone you love… It makes me sick that people could relate loosing a cat to loosing a child… I gaurntee you that any mother who ever lost their child would have much rather lost a cat than see their baby die…
I just want to say that cats are a dime a dozen. glad this cat got a good home and the original owners probably went out and got another kitten. last time I went to the pound, there were at least 100 cats needing a home – as long as they have one, thats all that matters.
I can see both sides of this story, as I have lost cats because of careless people. However, the original owner didn’t bother to put up a poster until months later, what does that tell you? If I had found a kitten, lost and alone I’d take it in as well. The new owner took care of him, and PAID for his worms and parasites to be taken care of. The original owner should be glad that he is safe and not left dead in a ditch. Chances are they got a new cat, people are making way too much of a big deal about this than it needs to be. I’m just glad the kitten is safe.
I had to do this once. I found a kitten, got attached, owner put up posters, gave kitten back. Two months later the kitten came looking for ME and the owner had a collar on him but he grew so the collar was CHOKING HIM TO DEATH. I took the collar off, kept the kitten, never saw more posters. Those bastards didn’t deserve him. He’s an awesome cat, now 16 years old.
So many of the posters here are so stupid. You are assuming things about the original owner that might not be true at all (if you can understand what many other posters wrote out). And you’re not seeing that the person who kept the cat after finally finding a lost ad for it, and then going so far as proudly posting that they are keeping it, is total snot of a human being.
This made me so happy. Whoever is dumb enough to not get a tag is just plain stupid. You are so nice to take the cat in and get it all fixed. The people who think you are mean for not returning the kitten, are the stupid people who don’t care enough about their animals to get a tag for it. They are the ones who have lost their animals and had gotten around to looking for it. I wish there were more people like this guy in the world. If there were then we wouldn’t have so many abandoned and homeless animals.
Man, I hate ‘ethics’ people – you always miss the important bits. You’re utterly wrong and reading a ton into that letter – yours reads rather self-congratulatory for ‘catching’ someone.
Cats get lost, tags get ripped off, worms happen easily,.. but you assume that ‘ownership’ is the most important thing here. The cat now has a home, it’s cruel to just give it to someone else after it’s bonded – even if that person had first ‘claim’.
Even that said – life is not black and white. It’s not good vs bad. Shit happens and you deal with it the best you can.
I cannot believe that anyone would think this is right. I feel that the original owner MUST have put up the “lost” poster soon after the kitten went lost, and just because the “thief” didn’t see it until months later doesn’t make the original owner a bad person.
Anyone with half a heart would have put up a “found” poster right away, letting the owner know that you had found their kitten. I’ll bet that they would have found that the owner loved that kitten a lot. But obviously they simply thought the kitten was adorable and wanted to keep it.
Instead of picking this apart, why not just realize that someone stole another person’s newest family member…..at least, that’s how I look at our animals. They are part of the family.
Perhaps the original owner was doing a poor job of taking care of the kitten… but then again, maybe he wasn’t. Perhaps he had a vet appointment set up for him already, or was about to get one, when the kitty disappeared. That does happen, and the kitty likely wasn’t even with the original owner long enough for any evidence of maltreatment to be found. Other people have mentioned that cats can get parasites easily (I know one of mine has had repeated episodes with contracting tapeworms from doing his hunting thing). And it’s not mentioned that the cat LOOKED like he was abused or neglected aside from that, so it may very well have not happened (especially if the person who found him thought it was appropriate to put up that flyer to tell the original owner not to worry about him anymore).
Perhaps this new owner is doing a good job of taking care of him now, but that doesn’t excuse him from not at least trying to return him to the person who lost him. Nothing is mentioned of whether he put up found posters or ads. The original owner may very well have posted that flyer well after losing him, or he could have done it early on and the new guy just missed it for whatever reason. He mentions that he looked around the neighborhood for notices for the kitten, but he doesn’t say whether he looked outside of that area. The kitten could indeed have wandered a farther distance than that, and if he were really looking, he should have looked farther than he said he did. Maybe he did, but maybe he didn’t.
I know that, in the new owner’s shoes, I’d at least make flyers saying the kitten was found and post to places like Craigslist saying the same thing. If someone contacted me to say he was theirs, well, tough then, but I’d still feel obligated to give him back unless I knew or found that there was a VERY good reason not to (and I WOULD honestly be looking for one up until I handed him over). And if no one responds saying that he is theirs, well, at least I tried, and I can keep him unless/until it becomes necessary to find him a new home. If I had paid for him to receive medical treatment and the like for things like parasites and neutering, I would ask for compensation for it, but that would be the extent of my demands. (Any treatment related to possible abuse or neglect I could use as grounds for not returning him, but stuff like de-worming and neutering is rather normal and doesn’t provide the same legitimacy for an excuse. It’d take a fairly severe infestation that could have been taken care sooner than it was to make it seem like the cat wasn’t being well-cared for.)
I’m actually having to do that right now for a cat that wandered into the apartment I’m staying at this week. She’s been recently spayed, so for a while I did think that she was previously owned. Since I still can’t rule that out completely even with other factors I’ve taken into account (ear-tipping, so could have been TNR’d, but still really friendly for a cat that could have had that done to her), I am still going to be putting up signs for her just in case. She’s sweet, and I’ve gotten a bit attached, too, but she seems to be in good condition for a stray, so someone who was taking good care of her may be really missing her.
I can’t help but remember the last couple of times a cat of mine has gone missing. One of them I broke down over during the week that he was gone. The other one never came back, and I really wish I knew what happened to him, and I still sometimes imagine and hope that he’s made his way home. And I loved that cat. Fifteen years growing up with a pet like that can make you really miss the guy, and while the one that I’m looking after now may not have been with whomever might have had her for as long, I’m sure that that potential former owner could be very distressed over her being gone by now. The guy missing this kitty here may very well have had to deal with the same thing, so telling him that his lost pet is okay but that he can’t have him back is a bit dickish at the same time as it’s helpful. If you’re going to keep the cat anyway, you might as well just not inform the last owner about it. Having the fact that your pet is okay being dangled over your head and not being able to get him back is probably just as bad. If I knew my cat were still alive and being looked after, I’d be trying as hard as I could to find the person who has him to get him back. So it’s really not much closure just being told that someone else has him now.
Tl;dr: The last owner may or may not have been a good owner. The new owner may or may not have looked extensively for the last owner. What the new owner did is still kind of dickish, even if he is taking good care of the cat now. You shouldn’t withhold a pet that you’ve taken in from someone who has lost him unless you have a valid reason for doing so; the former owner has to have done something to warrant it.
I recently lost my cat of 7 years who I love so much. Did he have a collar? no because he never leaves it on. He slipped out by accident and I havent seen him in several days I have put fliers all over the neighborhood and gone door to door. However I feel in my heart that he is someone who has the same selfish thing. Has assumed that he was a stray or I didnt care and now is keeping despite I cry over him every night.
ITS CALLED A FOUND POSTER. not to mention all the websites you can post found ads on. Its not right to keep something that doesnt belong to you how would you feel if that happened to you?
Soo, this person looked for lost posters with no real intention of giving the cat back. Then to put icing on the cake decides to give the owner, who was probably just as much in love with the kitten, the ultimate f** you by saying “yeah, i have your cat and you aren’t going to get him back. By the way here are some pictures”
I love this. I love how this person tells the owner that cat is okay and is doing fine. If I was the owner, I’d feel good knowing that I have made a cat happy by giving him a person, and I had made a person a little less lonely. Rock on, anybody nice enough to do that!
