My sister found the cat wandering the streets one night. She had a jingle bell collar on, but no name or information, so she brought her home. Although she posted on websites and in the paper and walked around the neighborhood with fliers, no one claimed this cat. My sister put alot of effort in to trying to find this cat's family as I had just lost my cat and was going through trying to find him, so she knew the other side. My niece grew attached to her and they have kept her ever since and she is
an indoor cat. I believe she was an outdoor cat before they found her because this cat wants to go out alot of the time! It's usually before she has to go to the litterbox. Every once in a while she just makes it out that door before they get to close it. I have suggested a microchip (she has a collar) and she is almost in agreement. The only thing we wonder about is illness from the chip. I have read conflicting reports on that.
I am just so happy that it turned out well.
