Missing cat in Pialligo area.

By Thumper - 12 September 2005 29

I know this isn’t a lost and found service but given that JBs parent’s cat is getting a good run, I have to ask if this little community service could be included.

My partner recently went on holiday for a week of so and dutifully put her two cats in to a cattery at Pialligo.

Due to the absolute ineptness of the staff one of her cats escaped and is believed to be still at large in the Pialligo area. Now the cat didn’t have one cage door to get by, but two. And yet it still managed to get out when a staff member cleaned the cage.

Having said that, the other cat, the not escaped version, is fretting for his friend and my partner would be eternally greatful if the said cat was found.

His name is Monty and he’s jet black and slinky. Okay, its not much to go by but he’s also microchipped and has a collar with a mobile number.

Some reward could be arranged in the form of alcohol.

Please look out for said cat if anyone is in that area.

Thanks

[ED – The tale of a kennel losing a pet is interesting enough in its own right]

The entire community would be better off if all native wildlife were rounded up and exterminated.

I can’t stand people who don’t care about anyone but themselves, but I still always try to see the good in everyone. I think there are very few people with no redeeming features. However, I think it is time to accept that you are, in my opinion only, not only the former, which I had always known, but also the latter, which is sad. You win, there will be no further communication between us, as I’m sure fellow readers don’t appreciate it.

murder refers to the killing of a person.

cats are not people, hence they cannot be murdered.

however, they should all be rounded up and shot.

lost ones, found ones, ones in pet shop windows.

the amount of native wildlife these little ecological open pit mines in fur coats chew through is phenomenal.

Hands up everyone who got really upset and heartbroken by my comment about my imaginary boyfriend? Hands up everyone who felt I was suggesting their pet be murdered?

Noone? Yep, that’s what I thought.

It does say leave a comment. So i left a comment.

And im not the one trolling for boyfriends.

What does that have to do with lost cats ?

pot this is kettle, over…

Thumper 1:35 pm 12 Sep 05

Ad,

yeap. That was pretty much it. here’s your cat. Sorry we lost the other one.

We’ll just have to wait and see if he turns up.

LurkerGal 1:22 pm 12 Sep 05

Ssanta: Woohoo! Hopefully this imaginary boyfriend won’t leave me.

I think the cattery in question is bloody appalling for what has happened. And I also think, as always, that bonfire is being a fucktard. If you can’t say something constructive, keep out of the post. This guy’s partner is upset she has lost her cat. How does your comment do anything but inflame?

Thumper,

no cats on Pialligo Estate today. Found an imaginary boyfriend for LG though…

Absent Diane 1:16 pm 12 Sep 05

I don’t get it…. were they like ‘so lady here’s your cat’ ‘but I had two’ ‘ Oh yeah we lost your other one’….

How can you lose a cat…… its completely ricockulous

Thumper 12:46 pm 12 Sep 05

LG,

Apparently the people at the cattery are still crying from the tirade they recieved. Albeit, the deserved to recieve.

I expect it will go a little further than a simple lost cat. I think they’ve made the mistake of losing the wrong person’s cat.

Its just ridiculous. They lost a cat. A cat that was locked in behind two gates. And they still lost him.

The entire community would be better off if all cats were rounded up and exterminated.

I’ll throw my hat in the ring re community announcements: Missing, one boyfriend. Imaginary. Would settle for real one. Contact LG for selection criteria.

On a serious note, I hope you find Monty. And I ALSO hope your partner has given the cattery a real serve!

Thanks Chris,

Sounds like a plan. I like the cat in a bag theory.

Will do.

Cheers

Thumper, phone the Snoopy patrol on 2CA and leave Monty’s details – and, this worked for me- when one of my two Siamese, the younger, daffier one- went missing, I put the other one in a shoulder bag and walked around, while she miaowed loudly – it worked – the prodigal cat showed up.Thumbs down to the cattery – really slack.

Thumper 10:11 am 12 Sep 05

Frankly its pathetic and no amount of excuses or saying that they are sorry is good enough.

Pure ineptness. I may post the name of the place later if I get angry enough about it.
