The cat came back

Her cat came back, she thought it was a gonner but . . .

When Kathy Zozula’s cat went missing from her friends farm 14 months ago, she thought only a miracle would bring her back.

“I started to panic that evening,” said Kathy.  “I knew something was up.”

Unwilling to give up on the two-year old feline, Kathy posted flyers, notified the media and searched the surrounding area.  Weeks passed without a single lead and eventually there were no numbers left to call and nowhere else to look.  With winter approaching, Kathy began to lose hope that she would ever see Neko again.

Meanwhile, 30 km. away, Marilyn Wittner was using food to try and befriend an unfamiliar cat that had begun hanging around her home in Enderby.

It took more than a month of daily feedings before the timid animal would let Marilyn even get close, but eventually she earned the homeless cats trust.  Marilyn, who has two cats of her own, quickly spotted an identification tattoo and called the SPCA, who then contacted Kathy.

“I didn’t really believe this miracle had happened until I saw Neko for myself,” said an appreciative Kathy.   “I have no idea what she did for so long or how she survived.  It really is a miracle.”
