Lost cat found after 7 weeks!
A Christmas miracle for one very determined disabled lady.
Imagine being stuck in a wheelchair and your cat escapes. Family refuses to search--even though it's their fault he got out. Now imagine how it feels to get help from a stranger and have your missing kitty back in your arms.
When Roni originally wrote me, it was heartbreaking. She said...
"No one is helping me, so I wheel around the neighborhood calling. The lady who lives behind me said I need to stop because I am making a spectacle of myself. I've been as depressed as a soul can be. If I give up, then i would really give up on everything. i can't seem to get anyone to understand."
NOW, here's the happy news now that Odin is home!
"Kim! My Odin is home! He's curled up next to me sleeping this very moment. He is very thin and appears weak. I do not think he would have made it another week.
You had good advice especially on the "wives tales" of things we really shouldn't do. Your advice about flyers in the circle you sent me is what sealed the deal for us. A few days after we talked, I paid my granddaughter to put flyers where you said.
On Christmas morning, I woke up to find a message from a woman on Cactus Bend so on Christmas day, I went out in my wheelchair and rolled myself down that way.
I was a couple of homes away when a father tossing a ball with his daughter said they got the flyer and would keep a watchful eye. I did not get far up the hill when his daughter started yelling for me. They saw him in a bush! A dog went after him so Odin took off and jumped a fence into a backyard! They saw it all.
The dad and his daughter were allowed in to check that yard but they came out empty handed. I asked about decks and bushes. The dad said there was a small house-like structure, but he felt Odin was too big to get under it. I told him what you say in your book about if his head could fit, then he could, so, bless his heart, he took me and my chair into the back and then I saw his head -- for just a second. It was him!
I flopped to the ground, cried his name and he answered! I was holding his brush and some food and he came out!
He is skin and bones. Odin was missing for 7 weeks and 2 days...wow. He lost half his body weight and his pads were tender and sore.
I got him to the vet who said he wanted to wait a couple of weeks before microchipping.
Odin is sleeping a lot. He is calming down but seems to be having nightmares but I am here to assure him he is home and safe.
Odin and I are truly one of your success stories and if you need me to fill out a testimony for you I will asap!
He sleeps with his back curled up to my chest with purr box going louder than ever. He has not left my side.
Thank you for what you did for us, Miss Kim.
Right now he keeps sticking his head in the way---talk soon God Bless you for the work you do.
Roni and Odin
