Beautiful cat in Austin needs rescue! Hurry!! - Page 2

post #31 of 57
Thread Starter 
BTW, here's more details on the cat, in the hopes that he can be found:

As I mentioned, he's very friendly, so you shouldn't have much trouble getting him to come to you if you can track him down. Try opening a can of tuna, he loved it!

He had the most beautiful smoky grey coat. Not a shorthair, but not super long either. He had kind of a fluffy tail. And as I mentioned, a tabby face.

He was a bit of a lanky type, very skinny with oversized back legs that reminded me of a jackrabbit.

He also had kind of a funny meow, and he was very vocal. He was obviously a very intelligent cat, judging from how vocal he was, and he had a strong inclination to use his front paws to reach for things. And he had an erie sense for what was going on at all times.

And of course he was declawed, unfortunately.

Keep me posted! I'd sure love to be reunited with him.

I sincerely hope this will all have a lovely, happy ending. Mike, can you please let us know how it goes? I will be keeping you and this little guy very close to my heart and in my thoughts today ...

Have there been any updates on this thread? I'm currently in Dallas, but went to college (and love) Austin. I can possibly have some college friends check out the area if it's still needed. I also volunteered at the Austin Humane Society for 4 years. They are a no-kill shelter and I would be willing to give them a call.

I haven't heard anything as of yet, but it could be early still. Mike, how about you? Has anyone tried to contact you yet?

^^^ Not that I'm aware of.

I'm just as curious to know what's going on.

And still kicking myself for not having taken care of this myself when I was down there...

Once again, he was hanging around in the neighborhood of Suite 301. Go into the parking lot, take a left, go down to the end, and it's on the left.

If he isn't there, check back a few days later. It's possible he hooked up with another couple of tenants for a few days, just like he did to us.

I promise, if someone finds him, I'll pony up for all the costs of sending him here (including vet bills, all travel costs, food, whatever).

Any news yet Mike?

No, I haven't heard anything.

My friend from the Austin area just called me.... Fri. 9PM.

She is going out to dinner in Austin with her daughter and will stop by the Summerfield Suites after dinner and try to find your cat Mike.
I gave them the latest info. that you added about how to locate him.

If they succeed, they will call me so I can give them your phone #.
Either way....she will call me tomorrow & I will post here about what they found.

My fingers are crossed.

Mike,
This is the e-mail message that I received from my friend, when I came on line this morning.
She sent it late last night.

"hello.. didn't find him but I will go back tomorrow.
have to go to sleep i'm dying!!!"


It was late when they went to the Summerfield Suites last night, she had, worked all day and must have been very tired.
Because it is now the weekend, I hope that she will go back into Austin and try one more time.

Mike, have you called the manager of the Summerfield Suites and given them the relevant info. about this kitty.
Maybe you could offer a small reward to their employees if they find him and take him to a vet for you.

Also...a call from you, to the Austin rescue group that Gaye found, requesting that they call you back collect ASAP, might help.

Amazing things have happened because TCS members don't give up....
Lets find this kitty...he has a forever home waiting.

I've done the reward thing before, and unfortunately people are quite likely to send you a random cat... Not that it would be so bad to help save a random cat, but I don't have the means to deal with ferals or other ill-tempered kittles unfortunately. (I already have multiple cats, and integration with them is a serious concern for my wife.)

I'd be happy to do that. Gaye, can you tell me who the group is, exactly?

Thanks.

The rescue org I contacted can be found here:

www.animaltrustees.org

I am still holding out hope for all of this to work out!

My continued best,

Gaye

Mike,
My friend from the Austin area finally called.
Late last Fri night she drove all around the building area that you stayed in and did not see any kitties.
Because it was so late she did not get out of her car.
That does not mean that they were not there...
but she did not see any cats at all.
If she goes back to look, I will let you know.

Whatever happens, I know that there is a kitty out there just waiting to join your loving family.

Sending more {{{{rescue the gray kitty prayers and vibes}}}} out to Austin Texas!! Maybe one of the maids took him in
post #55 of 57
I just read this whole thread.

Good for you mike for trying to save the little kitty.

I don't want to be a damp squib but he could have been picked up by another guest,or maybe he went home to his 'owner' I do hope you find out where he is because I know you will always worry what happened to him.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you and 'the grey little man'

{{{{sending many many be found vibes to the Little Grey Man }}}}

BTW, have you checked out on any of the Austin pet-finder sites, in case another guest turned him in to a shelter?
