Many thanks for mentioning our lost kitty, Pandora Jade, in your column on March 17. We were able to recover her! She had explored her way into a cardboard cat carrier being stored in the rafters of the neighbor’s garage and a chair had fallen down over the top so she couldn’t get out!
You can see she is well-named. I was hoping you would have room to print a thank you to Kim Stewart and family of Lafayette in your column. I think their kids would get a big kick out of it, and everybody loves a happy ending. Thanks again! (Virginia Wheaton, Lafayette, CA)
I thought I’d print this letter so all cat owners can take note of how easy it is for their cat companions to get "lost." Cats get locked in garages … driven to another city after they fall asleep in the back seat of a neighbor’s car and then get a free drive to work the next morning … and picked up and taken to a new home by someone who thinks the cat is lost. There’s plenty more, but that’ll do for starters.
Indoor cats live much safer lives.
