Go East Young Kitteh!

I've already gotten two blogs out of TW this week but I had to post about Willow Squires. It's been all over the news here in NYC but I thought I'd post a summary and some cute video, in case any of my furrends have missed the excitement. Willow was found cruising the streeets of NYC this week, near the National Arts Club. Why, you may ax, is this news. Lots of stray cats roam the streets here. This pretty calico was not your ordinary stray cat; she was a tourist. You see, until 5 years ago, she called Colorado her home. Nobody knows how she made her way 1,600 miles east, but she did. Hey, who doesn't want to see NYC at least once in their 9 lives! Because of her microchip, her peeps back home were notified and this story has a happy ending. This should be lesson for peeps that they should always get their kittehs microchipped if they let them out of the house. Of course, I've already mentioned that indoor cats shouldn't be let out of the house alone under any circumstances.



Click here to hear Willow's story. Stupid ABC wouldn't let me post their video here. Pffftttt!

Such a miracle. Willow no doubt had a few cat angels guarding her!

We just heard about this amazing kitty on last night's national news. It's an amazing story. Someone must have given her a good home because she really looks to be in good shape - not your typical stray that's been roaming the streets fighting for survival. We are so happy she and her staff will be reunited.

Willow is SO lucky she had that microchip - the NYC ACCs are very high kill and she might have died if her humans had not been able to be traced. So this is a big lesson about getting us kitties microchipped (and keeping the info up to date). Even though, admittedly, it is a pain in the neck to have done.

what a lucky girl. It gives mommy the jimjams just thinking I might ooze out between the screen door and front door so she is super duper careful. I'l be smooshed by the first car coming by.

It is really an amazing news. I have to guess Willow really wanted to see NY! I'm glad she was reunited with her family :-) And yes, getting kitties microchip is very important!
