The mystery of the stolen kitten

Yesterday while I was at the laundromat doing cat laundry, I got one of those calls I dread, we've found a cat and the microchip traces to you.  This time it was a vet clinic, someone found a cat and brought it in, her name was Jazz and the chip was registered to me.  Well I TNR hundreds of cats so the name didn't ring a bell, I went home and looked through my records, nothing, and she wasn't eartipped and was friendly so even stranger.  I called the microchip company and they said Jazz was spayed and chipped in March 2015 at the Toronto Humane Society so I drove down to talk to someone there.

I went into intake and explained the situation and gave them the chip number.  When the intake person put the chip number in the computer, she looked puzzled and had to get the supervisor.  Well, what a story, Jazz was a kitten I took in for adoption, but she was stolen from the shelter last spring!  All this time she's been living somewhere, and for whatever reason got out or was abandoned and was found not that far from the THS.

She looks in pretty good shape, just a scratch on her face, I can only hope the people who stole her loved her and took good care of her. She is now back at THS, waiting for her second chance.

  1. People steal cats? Here they seem to prefer to abandon them. :( Glad the mystery is solved.
